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
Mr. Bean's first name is confirmed to be "Mr." throughout the TV series and the spinoff movies. There are several occasions where he writes his full name as "Mr. Bean" on registers or envelopes, or shows his printed driver's licence or passport with "Bean" in the Last Name slot and "Mr." in the First Name slot. (There used to be a rumour that one scene in a TV show or movie shows a passport giving his name as "Rowan" after Rowan Atkinson, but no specific citations or screen captures have ever been provided to back up this rumour, which probably isn't true. His first name is consistently "Mr.".) See more »

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 »
"Mr. Bean" is one of the funniest shows ever created. American shows need to be more like the British ones. Rowan Atkinson is a very creative actor and this is the role that he was made to do. Whenever I see a car similar to his' now, I'll just remember it as the best supporting object that's never won an Emmy (sadly).
But anyways, everybody should watch this show no matter what. Because of this show, I now have new ways of doing things and such.
And last, but not least, is the teddy bear Mr. Bean always carries around. He's another one that should win an Emmy for his performance.
So for anybody reading this, go to the nearest video store and buy "Mr. Bean."
