This is one of my favorite episodes of the English sitcom 'Mr. Bean'. As silly and clown-like that guy might be, nobody can deny that he is hilarious.
No wonder that Rowan Atkinson is considered the "Charlot" of recent history. This TV show is the prove of that. It is mute cinema most of the time and the type of humor that characterizes Mr. Bean is inspired on Charlie Chaplin.
But, speaking of this episode, Mr. Bean decides to go to a library. Why, I don't know. But one thing is for sure: he doesn't go there to read books, but to cause major messes. See what he does to the book and everything is said.
This is clearly absurd, but it is this absurd humor that is its strength. Everything is funny: Mr. Bean's sneezes and gasps, the reader in the library always suspicious of Mr. Bean's erratic behavior, the noises caused by Mr. Bean's personal objects and even the fact that he is caught at the end after trying to frame the other guy who did nothing at all.
