Mr. Bean is a grown man who seems to have been literally born yesterday. He gets up to ingenious oddball nonsense every episode while all the time remaining silent. When he does speak, it's with a croaky voice. Written by
Due to the focus on visual jokes as opposed to verbal humor, the show was able to connect to a world-wide audience. In East-Asia, where it is not uncommon for people to also adopt a Western-sounding first name, the show was so popular that many boys adopted the name 'Rowan' in honor of Mr. Bean's performer, Rowan Atkinson.

Mr. Bean is funny purely and simply because he is a total buffoon. There's not much dialogue in this film but it's enjoyable to watch Bean's facial expressions and the situations he ends up in.
A lot of funny scenes take place in his car (how he passed a driving test is beyond me). In one episode he brushes his teeth and gets dressed-whilst he is driving.
Another funny thing is that Mr Bean doesn't seem to have much family or friends-except for his teddy bear. Bean is fiercely protective of his teddy bear and it makes me laugh watching scenes with him in.
I could go into detail about other funny scenes in the series but all I'll say is go out and buy the videos. They really are amusing.
