Mr. Frightfully-Busy was a character who appeared in the series 1 episode The New Nanny.


A very stupid man who believed the fibs told by his horrible children, Mr. Frightfully-Busy was a thin man who wore a white shirt and blue tie underneath a striped tank-top and brown leather bomber jacket. His jeans were blue, and he sported a pair of small spectacles.


Mr. Frightfully-Busy was far too busy working in the office to look after his two children Tristram and Candy, so he and Mrs. Frightfully-Busy hired a nanny to take care of them, the long-suffering Mrs. Mac.

When the little brats told him lies about being beaten with golf clubs by the nanny, Mr. Frightfully-Busy wasted no time in giving the poor old woman the sack and kicking her out of the house.

Later, when the children had been taught a lesson in manners by the crocodile, Mr. Frightfully-Busy re-hired Mrs. Mac and helped her in with her bags, never noticing that the luggage seemed to be made from living animals . . .
