Mr. Tall in the books

Mr. Tall's first edition

Mr. Tall dislikes his oversized legs. He meets Mr. Small; they go for a walk together, and when Mr. Small goes for a swim, Mr. Tall can't, but then, Mr. Tickle, Mr. Nosey, and Mr. Greedy teach him that oversized body parts can be helpful. Mr. Tall then decides his long legs are great for walking, and while Mr. Tall made it home quickly, Mr. Small took a year to get home. He is now happy.

The Mr. Men Show

Mr. Tall in the Mr. Men Show

Mr. Tall appeared in the second season of The Mr. Men Show. He has the same looks but his body is darker blue. He also wears a dark brown, floating crooked hat that has a yellow band around it and the curls and the shoelaces on his shoes are no longer visible. Like Little Miss Curious, Mr. Tall acted mostly as a background character, however he had a role in the first segment of Travel, going on a disastrous cabin vacation with Mr. Fussy, Mr. Messy, and Mr. Strong. Mr. Tall is voiced by Godfrey in the US dub and Keith Wickham in the UK dub. He's got a deep voice, almost like that of a soul singer. Mr. Tall speaks with a Texan accent which is deeper than Mr. Strong's and a Polish accent.


  • Early publications of Mr. Tall had him shown on the left hand side of the cover. In the mid 1990's, he was moved to the right. This was most likely due to the Egmont World logo being included on the left hand side of the books.
  • Earlier versions of Mr. Tall's cassette which was released by CYP Ltd. had Douglas Blackwell saying "and he went off looking for something to be nosey about" twice. Later editions had him only say it once.
  • In Little Miss Brave's story, it is revealed that he is afraid of spiders.

Mr. Men and Little Miss trivia

  • His legs are more thicker and are shown being separated, unlike in the books.
  • In the US version of Mr. Men and Little Miss, he speaks with a Texan accent.
  • The only time he had his shoes off was in the episode A Surprise for Mr. Tall.
  • In the 90's Christmas Special, when he was putting up a Christmas tree, he and the tree were a lot taller.

The Mr. Men Show trivia

  • First appearance: Driving (in cameo and non-speaking)
  • First speaking role: Travel
  • He appears to be shorter in height than he was in the books.
  • He, along with Little Miss Curious, Little Miss Bossy, and Mr. Funny have never appeared in the show's opening sequence nor were featured on official website.
  • His hat has been seen without him as shown in the episode Clocks where it is seen on a coat hanger by Mr. Noisy's stairs and in the episode Surprises where it is seen on Mr. Rude when he goes to Mr. Quiet's house.
  • The back of his design was leaked a month prior to the second season's premiere on Dagan Moriarty's animation reel on YouTube.
  • It is unknown why he played a very minor role in the series.
