- "Why didn't you say so?"
- — Mr. Scatterbrain's catchprase
4 February 2008
Mr. Scatterbrain was made for The Mr. Men Show as a counterpart for Little Miss Scatterbrain from the books as executive producer Eryk Casemiro stated that the female characters in the series should remain mostly positive.  He is a pear-shaped magenta Mr. Men character with a blue bowler hat, a pink nose, a unibrow, and a wide collection of random items. Unlike the other characters, his tongue is hot pink. He also has a lot of animal friends, ranging from penguins to iguanas. His catchphrases: "Why didn't you say so?" (evident that he has short term memory loss) and "Where's my head?" He resides in Dillydale.

According to director Mark Ristley, Mr. Scatterbrain's voice is indeed modeled after comedian Ed Wynn who plays the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.
