Mr. Rude's family appeared in the episode Sneezes and Hiccups. They watched Mr. Fussy conduct a choir consisting of Mr. Rude, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr. Messy, Mr. Strong, Mr. Bounce, Mr. Nervous, and Mr. Bump sneezing and hiccuping and give the choir a standing ovation. They all have the same body shape, colour, face and shoes as Mr. Rude. Two of them have the hat Mr. Rude wore in the original books.
