I was watching the 'Love your Garden' show on Netflixs and they made a reference to Mr. Funny's Shoe car. I was like, I get the reference. Those British people really did grow up reading these Mr. Men books.

Mr. Funny wants to make everyone laugh, even worms and Daisy's and he does. The zoo animals are feeling sick so he goes and makes them feel better. He spreads good cheer all around. I had a lot of fun with this story.

The nephew had to read this one more than once as he loved it. He is a bit I was watching the 'Love your Garden' show on Netflixs and they made a reference to Mr. Funny's Shoe car. I was like, I get the reference. Those British people really did grow up reading these Mr. Men books.

I'm not really sure if there is all that much of a difference between Mr Funny and Mr Silly because, well, they seem to be as silly as each other. Honestly, there is a difference between being funny and being silly. If you are funny then you generally just make people laugh, however if you are silly then you are probably little more than a jerk. Okay, that is probably being a little harsh, but then again there are those people who may appear to The Best Medicine

I'm not really sure if there is all that much of a difference between Mr Funny and Mr Silly because, well, they seem to be as silly as each other. Honestly, there is a difference between being funny and being silly. If you are funny then you generally just make people laugh, however if you are silly then you are probably little more than a jerk. Okay, that is probably being a little harsh, but then again there are those people who may appear to be silly, but in reality are just different, and different in a good way. Then you have the show ponies, those who are silly simply because they want to draw attention to themselves (by doing things like biting the head off of a dove, though there was a bit of context to that, though being incredibly drunk at the time didn't help all that much).

The story goes that My Funny wants to go to the zoo, but the zoo was closed because the animals are all a little sad. Well, that hasn't stopped any of the zoos that I've been to because a lot of them when I visit I never actually see the animals because they are off hiding in parts of their cages that are outside of the view of us plebs. Okay, if we get there at feeding time, then the animals do come out, but generally they don't appreciate being gawked at all day so they off and hide. That still doesn't stop the zoo from charging through the nose to see what generally looks like a bunch of empty cages.

However, the interesting thing about Mr Funny is that it reminds me of that Robin Williams movie about that doctor that would dress up as a clown to cheer up sick children and make them laugh, and at least brighten up their day a little. The thing is that childhood, in a perfect world that is, should be a time of joy, happiness, and just plain fun. We don't have any responsibilities (that's our parent's problem), so we should relax, and run around the park with a kite. Yet not all children get that opportunity because they are either born into poverty, violence, or simply get really, really sick. Which is why there are people that put aside some time, and money, to bring a bit of brightness into their lives.

Yet we must be careful, because children always act to work on the heart strings, and some of these 'charities' are little more than scams and tax dodges. In fact some large companies use these charities to simply funnel money through for their own selfish purposes, but will promote these organisations because the phrase 'just think of the children' always results in people opening their wallets. I remember when I worked for one of those dodgy charity collection agencies – the ones where only 10% of the money collected actually gets to the charity – I was told by one of the others that it is much more profitable to collect money for the charities representing children.

Gee, I always seem to turn these joyful, and delightful, children's books into some really serious reflection on life and the world in which we live. Yet, the world is not all doom and gloom, and there are certainly some honest and friendly people out there, such as Mr Funny, who make it much better for everyone involved. ...more

A tried and tested pre-home time favourite, especially for the Early Years. From the timeless collection by Roger Hargreaves, Mr Funny is just one of the superb Mr Men books which pupils cannot get enough of.
The protagonist certainly lives up to his name, as one of the silliest Mr Men characters by definition; his antics will certainly have pupils in stitches.

The protagonist certainly lives up to his name, as one of the silliest Mr Men characters by definition; his antics will certainly have pupils in stitches. Mr Funny operates in a hilariously ridiculous way, with his breakfast of a “daisy sandwich” and “glass of toast” and his shoe-shaped car, much to the amusement of all the animals and even flowers around him. Yet, he is a loveable character and his humorous nature is much appreciated when he cheers up all the depressed zoo animals with his outrageously funny faces, so wonderfully illustrated alongside the story.

The story is also educational in that it nicely recaps characteristics of different real life animals through both descriptions and illustrations.

Overall, a great carpet time story which inevitably leaves pupils excitedly asking which Mr Men story will be read next time.

My 4 year old son and I, just had a blast reading this for our bedtime story. We laughed more than the Zoo animals. :)

Mr Funny is the cutest character I've seen in the series yet. His cuteness makes him extra funny. He can make your laugh any day.

This one and Mr. Mischief are my son's favorites in this series. I actually remember reading these to my little brother when he was small. (His favorite was Mr. Silly!)

Ah, Mr Men and Little Miss, how wonderful you are!

These books made up so much of my childhood. No matter what I would go ahead and pick one up. I worked my way through them all a couple of times. Each one has a wonderful story for the child to engage with, each character being fun to read.

Everyone has a bias for their favourite character, yet every book is delightful.

Not the finest Mr Men book - although at least Mr Funny goes for a drive rather than a walk, a major difference in plot development!

It does teach kids that laughter is the best medicine, and that perhaps animals aren't all overjoyed to be incarcerated in zoos.

Given the title, this book had so much potential, yet was ultimately slightly disappointing. There are far better Mr Men books out there.

My little brother went through a Mr. Men phase when we were younger. Three years his senior I was a bit beyond the reading level but I found the look, both the size and simple, colorful illustrations appealing. Since that time, I have held a soft spot in my heart for this popular children's series. It wasn't until I read Mr. Funny that I realized I don't think I ever actually perused the text of his collection. Unfortunately this makes me impression of the story somewhat tainted because, as an My little brother went through a Mr. Men phase when we were younger.

Mr. Funny is one of the more surreal of the Mr. Men books. Mr. Funny lives a very odd life. His house is a tea pot. He drinks toast for breakfast and drives around town in a shoe. As with many of the Mr. Men books, the story follows Mr. Funny through the course of a day, starting with breakfast and going through the course of a day, usually with a trip into town.

Mr. Funny goes to the zoo where he is called into service to entertain a bunch of animals suffering from colds. Here is where the book falls apart. Mr. Funny is apparently a very entertaining fellow, although from his antics, I'd qualify him more as just funny in the head. He entertains the animals by pulling faces which are apparently so funny that everyone ends up laughing themselves silly. Unfortunately neither the text nor the illustrations are able to capture whatever it is about his face that is funny enough to cause spontaneous laughter but's apparently just what the elephant, lion, bear and giraffe all needed to cheer up. ...more

This book is really funny, Mr. Funny ( A character from the story ) tells lot of funny jokes. He even tells funny jokes in poems too, I think this is a good book! You should read it too!

I giggled. A lot. At the zoo part he cheered up all the animals. After reading this book I drove off to school in my shoe.

Whatever land Mr Funny lives in, they have set the bar very low in regards to humor. The characters crack up uncontrollably when Mr funny makes faces at them. I think there would actually be some laughing related deaths if a comedian with even a smidge of talent showed up in that town.

When very tiny Luke used to call him "Ha Man" because he had a little battery operated Mr Funny who chortled happily when you bashed his hat. Reading the story with Ha Man to hand was fun, but this isn't a top-notch Mr Men story otherwise.

Oh so funny... well according to little miss who now seems to be basing her jokes on this sort of funny. This is actually one of the better Mr Men I've read recently although Mr Quite Amusing is too big to fit on the cover!

I read this whole series as a kid, mom had a friend from England who brought them over whenever Stateside. I have quite a few at the moment, rather than list them all I will just blanket comment here. These are such simple and fun little characters that while not remembering details, always brings a smile to my face when I see them again!

I absolutely loved these Mr Men and Little Miss books. I remember getting them from my granny every week. There was so much from these simple characters, I remember filling my little bookshelf with all these books making sure I had got them all in right order. I wish I still had these books but somehow most of them got lost with many house moves or my mum gave the rest away. If I ever have kids, I will make sure they get the chance to experience these wonderful, colourful books.

My Review: Another Mr. Men book, this was better than some but not the best either. Munchkin did enjoy the silly faces and got a little giggle out of make some with me as I read the book. He also enjoyed the animals in the zoo. Even though he enjoyed reading this book at the time, it has not been requested again yet. ...more

Think Im right in stating that as a boy I had all the pre-1990 Mr Men books with the possible exception of Mr Snow. Looking at all the covers apart from the latter jogged my memory.

Sadly I remember little about the stories now, despite reading them numerous times during my boyhood, plus watching the Mr Men cartoons more than once.

Reckon the last time I wouldve read these was 1983, though may have returned to them as late as 1985.
