Based on the popular British skit comedy "Mr. Bean", this animated cartoon follows the adventures of everyone's favourite bumbler. The title character, voiced by Rowan Atkinson, lives in his flat with the lovable Teddy, where he makes moronic decisions yet brilliantly solves them. However, he also needs to outwit his evil landlady Mrs. Wicket and her horrible one-eyed cat Scrapper.Written by
Mr. Bean, Irma Gobb, Mr. Bean's teddy bear, the mysterious driver of the blue car and the traffic Warden are the only characters from the original live action series to be seen in Mr. Bean: The Animated Series. See more »
I love Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean who I always felt was more of a cartoon character than an actual human being. Mr. Bean is quite childlike in his nature. We don't know where he come from or who is his parents or anything else. We see him constantly try to handle life on earth without guidance unless you count his teddy bear as his true companion. He seems clueless yet he continues to drive around his little yellow car and act quite naive. We barely here him talk. The character could remind me of a Samuel Beckett character or play where he is quite minimal. The character of Mr. Bean is one to study. He appeals to a wide audience who may not get British humor. The show is more done without scripting but direction just like the show itself.
