- — Mr. Bounce, The Mr. Men Show
Mr. Bounce was very small and like a rubber ball. He just couldn't keep himself on the ground! He bounced all over the place! And, as you can imagine, that made things rather difficult. Last week, for instance, Mr. Bounce was out walking when he came to a farm. He climbed over the farm gate, and you can guess what happened next, can't you? He jumped from the gate, and...bounced right into the duck pond! BOUNCE went Mr. Bounce. SPLASH went Mr. Bounce. "QUACK," went the ducks. The other morning, for instance, Mr. Bounce was in bed. He woke up, and jumped out of bed, and you can guess what happened next, can't you? Bounce bounce bounce bounce! That happens quite often, which probably explains why Mr. Bounce leaves his bedroom door open every night! After he had picked himself up, Mr. Bounce went inside his house and sat down to think. Mr. Bounce bounced off the chair and banged his head on the ceiling. "OUCH!" said Mr. Bounce. "This is ridiculous," Mr. Bounce thought to himself, rubbing his head. "I must do something to stop all this bouncing about." He thought and thought. "I know," he thought. "I'll go to see the doctor!"
The Mr. Men Show
In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, he looks the same except he is bigger and his hat has a light pink stripe on it and floats. He has an Indian accent in the US version and a Belfast accent in the UK version. His bouncing about causes chaos for the other Mr. Men and Little Misses in Dillydale, especially when he's out in public. In the UK and US Versions, he is voiced by Sam Gold and Simon Greenall. He is first seen in Physical.
- He was Little Miss Scary's assistant in Dark & Up And Down.
- Despite his size, his legs are longer when wearing shoes, as seen in Physical, Mall, and Shoes.
- His house has beams under it for support.
- He danced like Mr. Grumpy in Dance.
- He is seen patting a goat in Fair.
- He is one of the four yellow characters.
- He was seen once without his hat in Sleep.

- His first line is "Wheee!" (Physical)
- He once said "You can never bounce too much." in Parties.
- In Mr. Men and Little Miss, his hat was red instead of pink.
- His bouncing annoys Mr. Grumpy more than anyone else..
- He sang a song called "The Boogies got me" in Music, but it got deleted in the UK because it wasn't very popular of a song.
- His 2008 design looks exactly like Mr. Tickle, the only differences being that Mr. Bounce is a little smaller than Mr. Tickle, and Mr. Tickle is orange with a blue hat.
