50 Years of Mr Men to air on Channel 4 this Sunday

The special documentary hosted by Matt Lucas will air on Channel 4 on Sunday 16 May at 6pm.

With the brand continuing to mark its milestone anniversary, 50 Years of Mr Men with Matt Lucas is due to air on Channel 4 on Sunday 16 May at 6pm.

The eagerly awaited documentary will chart the history of the characters, showing how they changed the face of publishing, their evolution and their role in pioneering a new world of inclusivity and openness.

It will explore iconic moments via the Hargreaves’ family story, artists, child psychologists and super fans.

In parallel, behind the scenes, Matt Lucas will reveal the secret world of the artistic process – what it takes to brainstorm, draw, write and animate new Mr Men and Little Misses for today’s world.

In addition, the show will reveal which two characters – among the five proposed by Adam Hargreaves in February and voted by more than 73,000 people – will be joining the Mr Men Little Miss family in September with the release of two new books.
