When Mr. Bean has to wait a few minutes for the hairdresser who's called away by the telephone, he starts playing barber, so three consecutive costumers have their hair done by him, but his inverse Midastouch strikes again: woe their hair and the real hairdresser they complain to! Next he goes to a pet show, starting of by cheating at a dexterity game by unplugging the fault-detection and next deciding to play 'hit the headmaster' not just with the provided wet sponges, but wit anything not too heavy for him to lift; then he enters his teddy-bear for the obedience test (meant for kids' dogs). In the train station he stops at nothing to get on without a ticket, and succeeds as a crawling sack of post - but on which train is he carried? Written by KGF Vissers

"My son looks like an ape!"

Mr. Bean heads to the hairdresser for a routine haircut. In typical Mr. Bean fashion, things go awry when the hairdresser has to attend to business on the telephone. Things take a horrific turn when Mr. Bean plays barber and starts ruining people's hair. No matter how many times you see this, it never fails to be funny. NEVER EVER let Mr. Bean near a pair of scissors. Mr. Bean cutting and styling people's hair is a very scary thought. It's a nightmare for people who value their hair. It's one of the most hilarious things Mr. Bean has ever done. When I first watched this episode, I couldn't wait to see what Mr. Bean was gonna do to people's hair. You are guaranteed to laugh.

"Village Fete & Pet Show"

Mr. Bean heads to the village for a day of fun. He cheats at a tricky a game by unplugging the plug. Next Mr. Bean tries to hit the headmaster with sponges. When the headmaster laughs at him for missing, Mr. Bean doesn't stop there. He starts throwing canned goods and cereal boxes at him. To end the day, he attends a pet show and enters Teddy for an obedience test. Mr. Bean's devious 9-year- old mind is at work here. Mr. Bean can be a bit mean at times, but in a very funny way. Mr. Bean entering his teddy-bear into the pet show is one of the most ridiculous things you can possibly think of, yet it works perfectly. That's the brilliance of the Mr. Bean character. He can make anything hilarious.

"Mail Bag"

At the train station, Mr. Bean forgets his ticket. Not one to give up, Mr. Bean decides to hop into a sack to hide himself. He crawls around in the sack to avoid everybody. He manages to succeed, but he gets on the wrong train. I appreciate the send-off Mr. Bean got here. At first, I didn't care for it. I thought Mr. Bean ending up in Moscow was pretty silly. Over the years as I've matured, I've grown to love it. Rowan Atkinson does some amazing physical comedy here by crawling around in the sack and bumping around. I used to get very saddened because it was the last episode of this show, but we ended up getting two Bean movies, and Bean appearances here and there.

Overall, this is a great send-off for Mr. Bean. Anybody that loves to laugh will appreciate the fun here.
