Story

Mr. Silly

Mr. Silly in the books

Mr. Silly lives in Nonsenseland, where the trees have red leaves and the grass is blue. Every year there is a contest for the silliest idea of the year, and Mr. Silly can't think of one. All the animals do human activity and say the wrong sounds. Mr. Silly wins the contest by painting all the leaves on the trees green.

Trivia

  • Mr. Silly is Roger's favourite Mr Men.
  • According to a Mr. Men comic, his birthday is February 13th, "every year".
  • When Mr. Silly was first published on the back cover of Mr. Men books he was cream with a red hat, though he was still the correct colour on the front cover of his book along with it's pages. As of more recent publishing he is light brown with an orange hat, both on the back cover, and on the front cover and the pages.
  • He is one of the largest Mr. Men in the Mr. Men and Little Miss episodes.
  • He is the first Mr. Man to wear shoes
  • He is sad in Little Miss Late.
  • In the original 1972 version of the book, the Nonsenseland pig is said to be wearing sunglasses and smoking a cigar. This was changed in 1990 to having the pig wearing trousers and a bowler hat. In later editions, the trees were said to have pink leaves instead of red ones.
