Goofs

When the explosion goes off in Mr Bean's apartment and Rupert goes in there to collect his hat that he forgot, Mr Bean returns inside and finds that everything is painted but there is a patch leftover of Rupert collecting his that from a shelf. Problem is that the patch looks like it has been cut out of something because it looks far too uniform and unrealistic to be a real human. See more »

My nomination for the single most funny TV episode ever.
6 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

When I was teaching, the day just before the kids went on the Christmas/New Years Break was a wasted day. Many of the kids weren't there and none of them wanted to do a lick of work. And, instead of fighting this, I usually made it a party day--a party day that also included this episode of Mr. Bean. And, if I didn't plan on showing "Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean", the kids would practically demand it--even though they'd seen it the year before! And, oddly, the kids all became VERY quiet and sat enraptured--saying almost nothing during the entire show--they loved it that much. And often, kids from other classes heard I was showing it and begged their teachers to let them come and see it as well--and a sort of mini-holiday tradition was born. Why? Because quite simply it's hilarious--for all ages, races and personalities. I have NEVER seen a show that everyone seems to like if they just give it a chance.

As far as what this episode is about, I won't give a lot of explanation. After all, it would spoil it. Some topics covered is Mr. Bean's incredibly lame New Years party, his driving home New Years day with a recliner--even though he drives a Mini Cooper and painting his apartment. I know all this sounds dull but Rowan Atkinson manages to squeeze every bit of comedy out of it--making this one great laugh after another. You just have to see this for yourself--and if you do, you're doing yourself a favor.
