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 Miss Chatterbox in Hello, Pizza Express?, Mr. Rush is distant cousin to Mr. Fussy. This also means he's related to Mr. Clumsy as well.
- However, like with both Little Miss Splendid and Little Miss Fabulous, and with both Mr. Bump and Little Miss Whoops in the Mr. Men Show, Mr. Rush never refers both Mr. Fussy and Mr. Clumsy them as family members. So whenever or nor what Miss Chatterbox heard was a rumor or they just never call out each other as cousins is unknown.
- 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.
- In one part of Little Miss Busy-Body, he has a blue hand.
