Alternate Versions

When aired on Fox Family Channel, usage of the word 'hell' was removed. Like in the episode "Mind the Baby, Mr. Bean" when Mr. Bean went to go put more change into the machine, a mother says "what the hell do you think you're doing", the word hell was covered up by children laughing. See more »

MR.BEAN--A PORTRAIT OF COMEDIC GENIUS
15 April 2001 | by Barnabasat45See all my reviews

Most Britcom imports that I have seen over the years have always brought laughter. It the mid 90's PBS began running episodes of Mr. Bean.

Rowin Atkinson, far better known in the UK and Europe then here in the States, is one of the most talented actors and comedians anywhere. He has to be. To take a character that is normally mute, always plotting mischief, and goes on more hair brained schemes and adventures then the entire Monty Python crew is,as Mr. Bean would put it," Absolutely Brilliant".

Even the most hardened sceptic will find this series so overwhelming funny that they would scream for more. Alas, there were only 13 episodes filmed. Rowin Atkinson has stated that he felt there was nothing more for Mr. Bean to do. Too bad. I can see a series, such as this going on for hundreds of episodes.

If you want to have a really good time with a wonderfully lovable goof ball, Watch this BBC classic!
