Storyline

Mr. Bean is a grown man who seems to have been literally born yesterday. He gets up to ingenious oddball nonsense every episode while all the time remaining silent. When he does speak, it's with a croaky voice. Written by Niz

Trivia

Mr. Bean's first name is confirmed to be "Mr." throughout the TV series and the spinoff movies. There are several occasions where he writes his full name as "Mr. Bean" on registers or envelopes, or shows his printed driver's licence or passport with "Bean" in the Last Name slot and "Mr." in the First Name slot. (There used to be a rumour that one scene in a TV show or movie shows a passport giving his name as "Rowan" after Rowan Atkinson, but no specific citations or screen captures have ever been provided to back up this rumour, which probably isn't true. His first name is consistently "Mr.".) See more »

MR.BEAN--A PORTRAIT OF COMEDIC GENIUS
15 April 2001 | by (New Market, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Most Britcom imports that I have seen over the years have always brought laughter. It the mid 90's PBS began running episodes of Mr. Bean.

Rowin Atkinson, far better known in the UK and Europe then here in the States, is one of the most talented actors and comedians anywhere. He has to be. To take a character that is normally mute, always plotting mischief, and goes on more hair brained schemes and adventures then the entire Monty Python crew is,as Mr. Bean would put it," Absolutely Brilliant".

Even the most hardened sceptic will find this series so overwhelming funny that they would scream for more. Alas, there were only 13 episodes filmed. Rowin Atkinson has stated that he felt there was nothing more for Mr. Bean to do. Too bad. I can see a series, such as this going on for hundreds of episodes.

If you want to have a really good time with a wonderfully lovable goof ball, Watch this BBC classic!
