Mr. Worry

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.
  • According to some translations, his name's literally Nervous.
  • A random character that looks like Mr. Worry made a cameo in "Boats" on the lifeboat, next to one that looks like Mr. Grumble & Mr. Greedy.
  • In Little Miss Trouble, it is shown that Mr. Worry can be mean when insulted.
