The title music "Ecce homo" ("Behold the man"), like many TV themes by Howard Goodall, was originally written as a serious piece of church choral music. New lyrics (in Latin) were written for "Mr. Bean": "Ecce homo qui est faba. Vale homo qui est faba" ("Behold the man who is a bean. Farewell the man who is a bean").
the word "PHUT" appears on the wall next to the busker playing the saxophone. in the episode The Return of Mr. Bean (#1.2), "PHut" is also the name of the club he meets his date at in the episode Mr. Bean Goes to Town (#1.4).
