Status: Partially Found

The Mr. Men Show is a British-American children's animated TV series based on the Mr. Men and Little Miss books by Roger Hargreaves, produced by Renegade Animation and the now-defunct Chorion. It aired on Cartoon Network in the US and Channel 5's Milkshake! in the UK between 2008-2009. The series has had separate dubs produced for the American and British markets.

Additionally, for the UK broadcast of the show, a minute's worth of content was cut from each episode to compress the show between long advertising slots; this localization was also used for international dubs.

While the entire British dub, minus one episode, is available to watch on the "Mr. Men Little Miss Official" YouTube channel in NTSC format, most of the aforementioned scenes are still missing as in the original UK television broadcast. Deleted scenes can be identified by the fact that there are no transitions between them and the other scenes (excluding the first 2 episodes and most of season 2).


As of April 2022, 42 out of 104 removed scenes have been found dubbed into British English, all of which have been included as bonus features on official DVD releases in regions 2 and 4.

The dubbed deleted scenes from the episodes "Hobbies", "Inventions" and "Amusement Park" used to be hosted on the now-defunct website of the show, but have since gone missing. Before Flash was discontinued, the The Mr. Men Show page on Irish-language programming block Cula4 still functioned; however, the individual character videos led to broken links.[1]

In addition, some of the thumbnails from the official Mr. Men Little Miss channel on YouTube contain high-quality stills from scenes that were removed in the UK and international broadcasts.

Season 1

Many scenes were obtained from six small compilation DVDs that contained random episodes from the first season, all of which have been recovered and uploaded to YouTube as of March 26th, 2022, when a copy of the otherwise out-of-print Region 4 DVD "Mr. Strong & Friends Love to Learn" was obtained by user "MrNormalDraws." The scenes can be found by activating the "Secret Scenes" option on the bonus features menu.[2]

Season 2

Most scenes were obtained from more recent UK DVD releases of the show, dated 2014-2015, being exclusively sold on Amazon. These DVDs contain episodes from both seasons of the show.[3] However, there are only five of these DVDs being sold on the website as of this writing. Based on the internal DVD numbering and the fact that one set of deleted scenes comes from a DVD that no longer appears on the Amazon website.
