First he wanders into a house where Mr. Brush the painter paints his nose, so he has to scrape it off with a hard brush which is painful.

On the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Nosey is a lighter shade of green, has a shape similar to that of Mr. Greedy, he has an orange oval nose and a black necktie that replace his big long nose, has one curl of hair like Charlie Brown in 'The Peanuts' series. He is also often seen around Mr. Small (they are best friends). He lives with Mr. Small in a observatory with a large telescope that comes out of the roof. He may be stronger than Mr. Strong because in the episode, Lake, he accidentally breaks the wooden platform when he jumps up and down on it which also causes Mr. Small to be flung into the air and then jumps into the lake for a swim. He also has a Durham accent in the UK version and a Canadian accent in the US version. In the US and UK Versions, he is voiced by Danny Katlana and Steven Kynman.
