The Mr. Men Show (sometimes simply called Mr. Men) is an animated television series based on the original Mr. Men and Little Miss books created in the 1970s, 80s and 90s by British author Roger Hargreaves and his son Adam Hargreaves. Adapted from the published source material into a television variety program, The Mr. Men Show features comedy sketches (primarily), pantomimes, dance numbers and music videos. The TV series is directed by Mark Risley and executive produced by Eryk Casemiro & Kate Boutilier. Original score and songs are composed by Jared Faber. Season 1 first aired on February 4, 2008 and Season 2 aired on September 8, 2009.

Based on the classic children’s book series Mr. Men and Little Miss, the show takes place in the town of Dillydale. The show revolves around the characters from the books (though some characters were made for the show) and their adventures. Unlike the books (which featured characters like Mr. Tickle, Mr. Brave, Mr. Happy, Little Miss Bossy, and Little Miss Sunshine as major characters), the TV show stars every character. Most episodes are not based on the books but are, in fact, new stories. There are also several changes in the TV show.

Bert and Ernie

Click here to watch Bert and Ernie’s Cartoons


Ernie and Bert were built by Don Sahlin from a simple design scribbled by Jim Henson, creator of The Muppets. Initially, Henson performed Bert and Oz performed Ernie, but after just one day of rehearsal, they switched characters. According to writer Jon Stone, the relationship between Ernie and Bert reflected the real-life friendship between Henson and Oz.

According to A&E’s Biography, Ernie and Bert were virtually the only Muppets to appear in the Sesame Street pilot episode, which was screen tested to a number of families in July 1969. Their brief appearance was the only part of the pilot that tested well, so it was decided that not only should Muppet characters be the “stars” of the show, but would also interact with the human characters, something that was not done in the pilot.

Bert

Bert was initially performed by Frank Oz. Since 2001, Muppeteer Eric Jacobson has been phased in as Bert’s primary performer after Oz retired from most of his Muppet duties to focus on directing (Oz, however, does continue to perform the character occasionally).

A typical Bert and Ernie skit has Ernie coming up with a hare-brained idea and Bert trying to talk him out of it ending with Bert losing his temper and Ernie remaining unaware of the results of his own bad idea. For example, in one sketch, Ernie tells Bert he started to collect ice cubes the day before, and put them under the electric blanket overnight. When he shows the ice cubes to Bert, he finds that that they have melted into water. Bert knows what happened and tries to tell Ernie that his ice cubes melted because of the electric blanket, but Ernie takes this to mean that a fish from the ocean came into the apartment and melted his ice cubes, and vows to find the (non-existent) fish that melted them.

One running gag with Bert is when Ernie often removes his nose either accidentally or for humorous purposes.

Bert is a hand-rod puppet, which means that while the puppeteer’s right arm is inserted into Bert’s head to control the mouth, the puppeteer’s left hand uses rods to control the arms of the puppet.

Ernie

Ernie was originally performed by Jim Henson. Since 1993, Muppeteer Steve Whitmire has taken on the role of Ernie (following the death of Henson in 1990). Ernie is a “live-hand puppet”, meaning that while operating the head of the puppet with his right hand, the puppeteer inserts his left hand into a T-shaped sleeve, capped off with a glove that matches the fabric “skin” of the puppet, thus “becoming” the left arm of the puppet. A second puppeteer usually provides the right arm.

A typical Bert and Ernie skit has Ernie coming up with a hare-brained idea and Bert trying to talk him out of it ending with Bert losing his temper and Ernie remaining unaware of the results of his own bad idea. One example of this is in one ancient sketch Ernie tells Bert he started to collect ice cubes the day before and he put them under the electric blanket overnight. When he shows the ice cubes to Bert he finds that that they melted to water. Bert knows what happened and tries to tell Ernie that his ice cubes melted because of the electric blanket but Ernie stupidly takes this to mean that a fish from the ocean came into the apartment and melted his ice cubes and vows to find the (non-existent) fish that melted them.

Unlike Bert, Ernie’s nose is rarely ever removed from his face in a skit.

Ernie’s performance of “Rubber Duckie,” wherein he sings affectionately about his squeaking toy duck and the joy it brings him during bath time, became a modest mainstream hit, reaching No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1970.
