Storyline

The opening credits show Mr. Bean being dropped from the heavens fully grown, and it certainly seems that way. He has a complete ignorance of how to do many simple tasks, but is also incredibly creative and usually can come up with a solution to any problem that a smarter man would never think of. Driving around in a Mini with his faithful teddy bear, he also has a nasty habit of knocking over three-wheeled cars... Written by rmlohner

A truly Hilarious Series
25 July 2001 | by Jdc102See all my reviews

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.
