Story

Mr. Tickle's story exactly begins at the room waking up at the bed and setting up his great breakfast using arms without getting up to this because of his "extraordinarily long arms." He uses his arms to get a biscuit and go back and eat it. He then decides that it is a dumb day for him and so goes around town tickling people - a teacher, a policeman, a greengrocer, a station guard, a doctor, a butcher and a postman and many more. They are so happy about tickling. Mr. Tickle go back to the home and do things. The book exactly ends with a good warning that Mr. Tickle could be lurking around anywhere even your doorway, waiting to tickle you for all. Mr. Tickle became happy right now.

History

The character of Mr. Tickle was created when Roger's 8-year-old son, Adam, asked, "What does a tickle look like?" Like all Mr. Men, Mr. Tickle has a simplistic look. He is orange with long wiggly arms and a small blue hat.

In 2001, for the 30th anniversary of the Mr. Men, Mr. Tickle's book was released as a collector's edition hardback. It included a foreword from Adam Hargreaves.

His appearance changed in the 2009 show, but changed back to this.

Appearances

Book: Orange circle, blue hat, long arms

Show: Is the same, but his hat has a stripe and his arms can get shorter at any time

List of characters

This is a list of Mr. Men, Little Miss and other special characters that appear in this book.

The Mr. Men Show

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Tickle remains relatively the same in looks, however his shape has changed to a circle and is smaller. His arms are now of a normal size (but can stretch out when needed) and his hat has an aqua stripe and is floating above his head. He however, tickles other Mr. Men and Little Misses due to the absence of humans in Dillydale. As far as character traits goes, he is still determined to tickle everyone he interacts with, but instead of doing it for mischief, he does it to make people happy and will stop when nobody wants him to tickle them, save for when the opportunity knocks with Mr. Grumpy, who appears to be his favorite target. He also has his own catchphrase "I think somebody needs a tickle!." He seemed to be in love with Miss Calamity in season 1 but in season 2 when she was deleted he seemed to have hung out more with Miss Chatterbox. In Farm, he sings a song called "Tickle it Out," with backing from Mr. Scatterbrain. In the US and UK versions, he is voiced by Jeff Stewart and Rob Rackster.

In Physical, Mr. Tickle was exercising with Little Miss Chatterbox when Mr. Lazy came and played his radio and Mr. Tickle then started to exercise to the tune and was enjoying it until Mr. Lazy unknowingly made it faster and he tried to exercise as fast as he could, but then the radio broke down and Mr. Tickle sat down in exhaustion. He then happily tickled Little Miss Chatterbox afterwards.

He made a last appearance in Pests.
