    I need to settle an arguement with the bloke sat opposite me...

    Was Mr Impossible one of the original Mr Men and if so, how can I prove it?!

    I distinctly remember Arthur Lowe narrating it on the TV cos, as far as I know, Mr Impossible was the only Mr Man with an American accent! I'm sure he was an original but my colleague thinks otherwise and won't accept any of my arguements :twisted:

    How did I get onto this anyway :?

    There is a lot of info on

    It lists 4 out of the first 6, written in 1971, as Mr Happy, Mr Bump, Mr Greedy and Mr Nosey, but doesn't say who the other two were.

    As the TV series did not start until 1974, I think it is unlikely that Mr Impossible was among the first 6, but maybe someone else can help you further.

    The first one was Mr Tickle - then the four that you mentioned. Don't know the 6th.

    Mission Successfully Accomplished - and all in 40 minutes, too - who needs International Rescue when you've got tMPers on the case :?: :wink: :lol:

    Sorry we've had to go along with your colleague, though :oops:

    If you mean is he one of the new characters then no, they've started creating new ones this year (including mr cool, mr rude and little miss whoops!), and apparently the tv show ran till 1985, so there was quite possibly an episode on Mr Impossible, although i can't remember it.

    Anyone know who the other original was?

    The Mr Men rule! :D

    If it wasn't for George, I wouldn't have the answers.

    Small children - so much mess!

    Well I'm really suprised that this link hasn't turned into a "which one are you". Actually it probably has in the form of some other link and I've just missed it - but just in case, which one are you?
