The Mr. Men Show (partially found UK dubs of cut scenes from children's animated TV series; 2008-2009)
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" channel in NTSC format, the cut scenes are still missing as in the original UK television broadcast.
Availability[edit | edit source]
As of April 2021, 38 out of 104 removed scenes have been found dubbed into British English, all of which have been included as bonus features on official Region 2 DVD releases.
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 charcter videos led to broken links.
In addition, some of the thumbnails from the official Mr. Men Little Miss channel contain stills from deleted scenes, proving that HD (and possibly dubbed) versions of these scenes exist somewhere.
Season 1[edit | edit source]
The scenes labelled as "Found" were obtained from small compilation DVDs that contained random episodes from the first season. Of the six DVDs released, the first five have been found; the sixth has since gone out of print. The scenes can be found by activating the "Secret Scenes" option on the bonus features menu.
Season 2[edit | edit source]
The scenes labelled as "Found" 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. 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 come from a DVD that no longer appears on the Amazon website, the collection seems to be incomplete.
