The Mr. Men Show is a Canadian/American remake of the British series, Mr. Men and Little Miss. It is virtually identical to the original British version, apart from the added live-action skits, actors and actresses, theme song, and credits. Its original air was in Canada. It aired in the United States started in the fall of 1997, syndicated by The Summit Media Group.[1][2] In the Canadian/American version, there were live-action characters called "the Mr. Men Players",[3] including the News Lady (with her sophisticated accent), the Game Show Guy, a carpenter with his assistant, and a mad scientist with her assistant, among others.

The re-dubbed episodes of Mr. Men and Little Miss later appeared on their own on Cartoon Network's preschool-aimed program Small World, which showcased animation from around the world, albeit with the intro and end credits completely removed.
