Trivia

The title sequence, which depicts Bean falling from the sky in a beam of light to the sound of a heavenly choir, has led to speculation that the character might be a fallen angel. Rowan Atkinson appeared in Richard Curtis' 2003 film 'Love, Actually' as a character which Curtis originally wrote as an angel, though this detail was not used in the finished film. See more »

Crazy Credits

The words of the song played in the titles and credits, "Ecce homo" ("ecce homo qui est faba. Vale homo qui est faba") translate to "behold the man who is a bean. Farewell the man who is a bean". See more »

Alternate Versions

When the video 'Exciting Escapades of Mr. Bean, The (1990) (V)' was released, a third sketch was aired called 'Bus Stop', where Mr. Bean has to wait for the bus with a blind man and a mother. This is an extended version of a skit in the episode "Mr. Bean Rides Again", after Mr. Bean drops his car keys down the sewer, he waits in line for the bus, but only part of the sketch was aired.

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.
