Mr. Rush in the Mr. Men books

Mr. Rush is always in a rush. He never does anything properly. He is in such a rush he has a terrible breakfast (toast not toasted, water cold), only brushes one tooth, and runs out of the house to go nowhere. He sees an ad for a vacation in a magazine but can't go away because he has no money, so he wants a job to make money. Being a bus driver isn't good, because he doesn't stop at any of the stops, being a waiter isn't good because he'd whisk away the food as soon as he brought it. The job he finds is as a postman delivering express letters, the best job for the fastest thing on two feet. He saves enough money and goes on vacation.

  • According to Little Miss Chatterbox in Hello, Pizza Express?, Mr. Rush is a distant cousin to Mr. Busy, but so far this is the only source to say so.
  • He is never seen with a front view. Because of this, there would be times the animators would often "flip" him. Some kid meal toys by Arby's and other merchandise do depict him with a front view.
  • His front view was revealed as a rhombus in that 1995 TV series that is in the episode, Mr. Slow Takes the Lead.
  • In one part of Little Miss Busy-Body, he has a blue hand.
  • Either he or Mr. Busy is the fastest Mr. Man.
  • His favourite sport is running.
