Mr. Snooty's first front cover.

Mr. Snooty lives all on his own in a very large house in Bigtown. He is one of the rudest people in the world, if not the rudest, and also one of the richest people in the world, if not the richest, living in the largest house with the largest, longest garden with the largest, longest flowerbeds on the largest, longest hill with a high staircase in Bigtown, and having the largest, longest limousine in Bigtown, and he is rude to everybody he meets.

One day he walks through his large long flowerbeds in his large long garden outside his large house on a large hill with a high staircase and he meets a goblin. When he is rude to the goblin, he says "Go away!", and the goblin shrinks Mr. Snooty to the size of himself by magic of saying "Wobblygobblygook!" so he can fit into a hole in a tree, and they enter the tree to meet the King of the Goblins, who the goblin agrees with to shrink Mr. Snooty by magic by saying "Koogylbbogylbbow!" ("Wobblygobblygook!" backwards) if he is rude to somebody.

Every time Mr. Snooty meets someone and he is rude to them, the goblin shrinks him until he learns to say something nice to them like saying "Please" and "Thank you", such as when he goes to a man to buy a newspaper, and also learns to smile. In the end, Mr. Snooty is a changed person, he's still possibly the richest person in the world, but now he's very popular and has lots of friends which he made after he learned to apologise for his rude and disrespectful ways. Now he most frequently uses the words "Please" and "Thank you".

Screen Shot 2011-10-23 at 10.25

Hot pink Mr. Snooty

  • Moral: Don't be egotistic and ignorant.
  • In some versions of Mr. Perfect, the last page depicts Mr. Snooty as purple.
  • Out of the Seven Deadly Sins, Mr. Snooty represents about three of them: Pride, Greed, and Envy (sometimes).
  • He is so rude, he finds it difficult to say "Thank you." However, he does say "thank you" at the end of his book.
    • Funnily enough, he actually said "thank you" in four episodes of Mr. Men and Little Miss.
  • In the book, Mr. Snooty is stated to be the rudest person is the world, but this was retconned when Mr. Rude was introduced for the series 31 years later, thus making him the second rudest person in Misterland.
  • So far, Mr. Snooty is even meaner than Mr. Mean, and also richer than him.
  • He doesn't care much if Mr. Bump gets hurt.
  • He doesn't get along with Mr. Grumble, because they usually have a fight with each other, but he is very good friends with Mr. Grumpy.
  • Despite disliking Mr. Mischief, he gets along just fine with Little Miss Trouble, and even goes as far as to assist her in doing troublesome deeds in a few episodes of Mr. Men and Little Miss, even though she is ideally the female counterpart of Mr. Mischief.
  • He actually cares about Mr. Happy, as he outright calls him his friend, as said in "A Very Happy Day for Mr. Happy".
  • In "Mr. Forgetful the World's Best Actor", Mr. Snooty turns, and we see one eye without the monocle. He is also depicted as a movie director.
  • In "Mr. Dizzy goes Doggy-sitting", Mr. Snooty walks away, and for a few seconds, as he walks away, we see the left eye without the monocle (Goof).
  • In "Little Miss Star Goes to Jollywood", Mr. Snooty is Little Miss Star's chauffeur, and has his real name as "James." However, it is currently unknown if this is officially his real name, considering that it was just a dream.
  • In "Mr. Impossible's Lesson", Mr. Snooty was so mean to Little Miss Shy, that he actually drove her to tears.
  • He turned into a toad in "Mr. Men - Adventure in Magicland".
  • Though it has been stated that Mr. Snooty reformed by the end of his story, later events have proved otherwise, as shown in future works such as Mr. Perfect. For example, in "Mr. Greedy is Helpfully Heavy", Mr. Snooty invites Mr. Greedy to his enormous house for lunch, only to postpone it as he is packing for an upcoming holiday. He demands an explanation from Mr. Greedy as to why Mr. Greedy has come to his front door at such an inconvenient time, and even insists Mr. Greedy to help force his bulging suitcases shut, despite later praising Mr. Greedy for his efforts.
  • According to the website, his favourite food is caviar.
  • He was knighted in Mr. Men - Adventure with Knights.
  • The name change of 'Uppity' to 'Snooty' was likely due to 'Uppity' having anti-black racist connotations[1] specifically when used toward black people, and the colour choice of Uppity (a deep brown) would at first glance lean such a way.
    • Unlike Mr. Jelly, Little Miss Dotty, and Mr. Mean, whose names were only changed in the US, as of January 7, 2021, Mr. Snooty's name was changed in all English-speaking territories on all merchandise, making him the second character to do so, the first being Little Miss Greedy, whom was also changed due to possible offense. Mr. Jelly, and Mr. Fussy’s names was changed to Mr. Nervous and Mr. Pernickety in The Mr. Men Show!, the latter however was changed back to Mr. Fussy in Season 2.
    • When "uppity" is typed in the URL bar, it redirects to Mr. Snooty.[2][3]
    • As Mr. Men and Little Miss was produced about 26 years prior to his name change, his episodes of said series remain unchanged. This is similar to how Little Miss Greedy's original name is still used in her original cartoon, as it was produced before Hargreaves' death and thus, before her name was changed.
  • In The Adventures of Mr. Men, the scene where he met the little boy playing ball was edited out.
