Mr. Bean and Teddy venture into the loft to look for an umbrella and uncover items from past experiences, like the time Mr. Bean had to dress himself on the way to the dentist, or the time he fell asleep in church or when the Christmas turkey wound up on his head and even the time a tank crushed his Mini.Written by

A shortened 53 minute version exists with the title "The Best of Mr. Bean", released in 2009. This version eliminates at least three of the flashbacks, including the mass, examination, and busker sketches. The credits are identical to the original longer version except for the color and typeface, and the omission of 4 of the cast members that were only in the eliminated flashbacks. See more »
Several years after the introduction of the hilarious Bean show, it is only natural that there should be a Best Of episode. We get a look back at some of his old classic bits, and probably the only thing disappointing is that there is no way that they could fit all of the worthy skits into one episode. My favorite of the flashbacks is definitely when he drives his car with the armchair on the roof, this is something that only Bean could come up with. He has such a bizarre outlook on the world that when he gets these wild ideas into his head, you don't even think twice. I mean after all, the guy locks his car with a padlock! I'm still not crazy about the out of control giant turkey scene, but all the rest are great fun. Even the turkey scene is amusing, the thing is just so pasty and clammy and unpleasant looking. Interestingly, the attic scenes with teddy, which we cut back to in between flashbacks, are also some of the better parts of the episode. Bean's "ta-daaa!!" when he opens Teddy's umbrella is a comedy skit unto itself. Outstanding!
