Mr. Small is very small, so small he lives under a daisy in Mr. Robinson's garden. He eats very enormous meals with little food, and talks to Walter the Worm about getting a job. He meets Mr. Robinson who tries to get him a job. They try putting mustard in mustard jars in a restaurant, which is not good because Mr. Small keeps falling into the jars. They try putting matches into matchboxes, no good either since he keeps getting shut in the boxes. The best job for somebody so small is writing children's books, and Mr. Small meets a friend of Mr. Robinson who writes children's books (referring to Roger Hargreaves), and writes a book all about himself. This Mr. Men book breaks the fourth wall.
The Mr. Men Show
In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Small is considerably larger, is egg-shaped and is an orange colour. A tall, black floating top hat replaces his blue bowler, and he now wears a pair of white sneakers.
He has a Welsh accent in the US version, and a typical English accent in the UK dub. He is voiced by Phil Lollar in the US version. and Keith Wickham in the UK dub.
His best friend is Mr. Nosey, and they live together in a observatory with a large telescope coming out from the roof. He is also small enough to fit under Mr. Nosey's arm.
He is first seen in Physical.
- He's been turned big three times throughout the series: in Little Miss Magic to the Rescue by Little Miss Magic, in Mr. Small - A Big Day Out by a Wizard, and in Mr. Happy and the Wizard by Mr. Happy.
- In the 1975 Mr. Men series his voice sounded like Mickey Mouse's voice because he is so little.
- In the 1983 cartoon his voice sounded like Norman Price's original voice from the 1987 version of Fireman Sam, because they shared the same voice actor.
- When Little Miss Tiny debuted, Mr. Small grew a little in height to make it easier to draw Miss Tiny and show the height difference between her and Mr. Small.
