Trivia:
At the beginning of Episode Two onwards, Mr. Bean falls from the sky in a beam of light, accompanied by a choir singing "Ecce homo qui est faba" (Behold the man who is a bean). These opening sequences were initially in black and white in episodes 2 and 3 and were intended by the producers to show his status as an "ordinary man cast into the spotlight". However, later episodes showed Mr. Bean dropping from the night sky in a deserted London street, against the backdrop of St. Paul's Cathedral. Atkinson himself has acknowledged that Bean has "a slightly alien aspect to him"; in the animated series, he is shown to be an alien.See more »

A truly Hilarious Series, 25 July 2001
Author: Jdc102 from Southern California

This show is a classic. Rowan Atkinson is so funny in this role, and Mr. Bean is one funny character. This is one show that you can see again and again and still laugh. I only wish they made more of these because they are great.
