Birthday happies to Roger Hargreaves of Mister Men and Little Miss Notoriety

I'm a wee bit tardy on this one, but my schedule only allows me to visit the blogosphere quite late in the evening. If you happen to be blogging at this nightowly hour, for sleep's sake get to bed!

Had you conducted a google search at any time today (today being several hours ago), you may have discovered that this day marked the 76th birthday of Roger Hargreaves, creator of the charming Mr. Men and Little Miss series from youthful days past.

These darling cartoony-characters taught us youngsters about various human behaviors, temperament, and how to interact/coexist with each mood accordingly.

As I've done a bit of growing up, I have come to realize that these cartoony-characters may have had some debilitating personality disorders.

If perchance, you sadly missed out on these childhood characters as a youngster, please enjoy them at this time.

Mr. Smug Little Bastard

Little Miss Shut Your Flapjaw

Mr. Slob-o Pigfilthpen Hoarder

Little Miss Control Freak

Little Miss 211 PC

Mr. Self Absorbed Slothbucket

(as a side note, one could speculate that with the mere addition of a goldiewig, Mr. Greedy looks strikingly similar to)...

Or is it just me?

Little Miss Attention-Seeking Whore

Ah, Little Miss Sunshine...
The darlingest of the bunch.

 That's it! You're a Psychiatrist now, you don't need no stinkin' DSM IV diagnostic criteria!
Just remember your Mr. Men and Little Miss characters, and you'll be certain to identify any and all mental illness!

I've compiled a list of these characters for your review:

Mr. Men Lads

Mr. Dizzy
Mr. Funny
Mr. Fussy
Mr. Grumpy
Mr. Impossible

Mr. Christmas 
Mr. Brave
Mr. Cheerful
Mr. Miserable 
Mr. Nonsense
Mr. Nosey
Mr. Quiet
Mr. Perfect

Little Miss Splendid
Little Miss Star
Little Miss Stubborn
Little Miss Tidy
Little Miss Tiny
Little Miss Trouble
Little Miss Twins
Little Miss Wise

I'll take Little Miss Splendid for the time being, but I've had my share of feeling similar to a character or two, or three, from the above described list.

Think about which character you can relate to right now, and which one you'd like to aspire to.

Don't forget that smile that lives just below the nose part of your face.

It's always there, it just tends to hide sometimes.

Here's to having a little Mr. Happy and Little Miss Sunshine on your side for the remainder of the week!
