Mr. Men Wiki

Sneezes & Hiccups the twenty-third episode (first part of the twelfth episode) of Season 2 of The Mr. Men Show.


Whether it's a tiny sneeze or a small hiccup, something is afflicting the people of Dillydale. Mr. Stubborn refuses to accept the fact that he is sick; Mr. Messy is having an uncontrollable sneezing attack; and Miss Magic struggles to cure Miss Daredevil's hiccups.


  • Mr. Stubborn, Miss Chatterbox, Mr. Grumpy, Mr. Lazy and Mr. Happy's Plot: Mr. Stubborn develops a cold, but refuses to admit that he is sick, despite Miss Chatterbox, Mr. Grumpy, Mr. Lazy, and Mr. Happy (who is the doctor) trying to tell him. He eventually sneezes down the entire building. (Deleted in the Russian dub)
  • Mr. Fussy and Mr. Rude's Plot (US version only): The Dillydale Glee Club with Mr. Fussy performs a concert made using sneezes and hiccups, in which Mr. Rude ends with a burp, causing the rest of the band to shout his name. Mr. Fussy thinks the show is ruined, until the audience is revealed to be Mr. Rude's family giving the performance a standing ovation. Mr. Fussy takes a bow, and the segment ends.
  • Mr. Fussy, Mr. Messy and Mr. Tickle's Plot: Mr. Fussy invites Mr. Messy and Mr. Tickle to a fancy restaurant where they are required to wear a tie and Mr. Messy doesn't bring one. Mr. Happy gives him one which gives him a crazy style. He then sneezes (even though he's one of the 12 characters with no visible nose) and Mr. Fussy starts to find and get rid of the thing that could be making him sneeze. It turns out in the end that the tie was making him sneeze.
  • Miss Magic's Plot: Miss Daredevil develops hiccups, she goes to Miss Magic, who somewhat makes things worse, especially with turning Miss Daredevil into a goat. In the end when her hiccups were cured it created an Audrey II. Little Miss Magic then transforms herself into a lawnmower to get away from the Audrey II and Miss Scary gets the hiccups. But instead of calling Little Miss Magic back to treat Little Miss Scary (the former is now mowing the grass outside the building), the latter decides to take the Audrey II plant home.


Mr. Grumpy is waiting at a bus stop, with Mr. Bounce and Mr. Scatterbrain sneezing.

  1. Mr. Bounce bounces as he sneeze. Mr. Grumpy stops Mr. Bounce by holding him, but makes himself bounce too much.
  2. Mr. Scatterbrain's nose inflates as he sneeze. Mr. Grumpy stops Mr. Scatterbrain by holding his nose, but causes Mr. Grumpy's nose to inflate, and deflate after.
  3. When both Mr. Men start sneezing, Mr. Grumpy decides to stop both of them by doing the same actions at the same time, but causes himself to bounce every time he sneezes. Mr. Grumpy then leaves the stop, with him sneezing and bouncing.
