About him[]



Mr. Worry in the books

Mr. Worry worries about everything. If it rains, he worries that his roof will leak, if there's no rain, he worries that all of his plants will die. He worries about the other Mr. Men, and he meets a wizard who suggests he make a list of all his worries and the wizard will make sure none of them happen. When there is nothing to worry about, Mr. Worry is happy for a week, until he is worried about not having anything to worry about!


Greedy grumble stingy

Mr Worry's possible appearance.

  • He is one of the few characters who care if Mr. Bump gets hurt. "Hey, I'm very worried about you, I'm worried that one of these days you might hurt yourself!"
  • In the Little Miss TV series from the early 1980's, he had a Welsh accent.
  • In the 1997 Summit/US dub, his voice is based on Bill Thompson's portrayal of Mr. Smee from Disney's Peter Pan.
  • According to some translations, his name's literally Nervous.
  • He appeared in 27 episodes of the 1995 TV Series.
  • A random background character that looks like Mr. Worry made a cameo in "Boats" on the lifeboat, next to characters that look like Mr. Grumble & Mr. Greedy.
  • In Little Miss Trouble, it is shown that Mr. Worry can be mean when insulted.
  • In Mr. Nosey Solves a Mystery, it is revealed that Mr. Worry has known Little Miss Trouble since they were little kids. Whatever could have happened that caused them to have a falling out as well as contributing to their current personalities is unknown.
  • The reason he is worried about plants dying is because he loves plants.
  • He likes to write out all his worries.
  • In Mr. Grumble Boils Over, while he tries to seek comfort from Mr. Grumble in the middle of summer while everybody was on holiday/vacation, he had his feelings hurt to the point of tears when Mr. Grumble was mean to him. This happening in the episode as well as how impatient and mean Mr. Grumble basically was to Mr. Worry strongly suggests that they are enemies.
  • Moral: Talk to somebody if you're worried about something. They may be able to help.
  • In Little Miss Star, the Leading Witness, he has a news TV station that he hosts.
  • He is the icon of the Article Stub template of this wiki.
