Fun Facts


  • The scene of the race starting was seen in the opening for the British and French dubs. But there are a few changes, as the one from the opening is presumably the prototype:
    • Mr. Nosey is maroon instead of green.
      • Like with Mr. Nosey, many of the background Mr. Men and Little Misses had different colors.
    • Mr. Jelly is seen running in the opening, but he fell in the episode because he thought he was being shot.
    • Mr. Lazy is seen simply standing while sleeping in the episode, instead of laying.
    • The start/finish line had brown poles and purple banner in the opening, but changed to blue poles a lighter shade of purple for the banner.
    • The hill that is hiding behind the banner is chartreuse in the episode.


  • Despite Mr. Fussy disqualifying Mr. Rush for starting early, he is still seen participating in the race. This rather makes a continuity error, because it's unknown what happened to him if he was still in the race.
    • If he was still allowed in the race, Mr. Rush should've been the winner, unless Mr. Mischief played a trick on him.
  • When the race started, Mr. Topsy-Turvy was seen going the opposite direction the others were going. But he was seen later heading the same direction, only backwards.
  • For the rest of the episode, Mr. Dizzy lost his hat when it came off.
  • For the rest of the episode, Mr Jelly was square, albeit still jelly like.
  • The episode's plot is very similar to Thank Goodness For Mr. Slow which was released the following season.
  • This is the only episode in the 1995 series where two characters who didn't get starring roles in said series have speaking roles (in this case Mr. Topsy-Turvy and Little Miss Brainy).


  • Mr. Fussy's animation after he shot the pistol is frozen in place.
