One of the greatest episodes of Mr. Bean
8 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was the first episode of Mr. Bean that I saw, and I laugh a lot every time I re-watch it. Only Rowan can do such things knowing that many people will laugh.

== Part 1 == Mr. Bean realises that he is late for is appointment to the dentist, and decides to dress and wash teeth while driving to the dentist. Once arrived, he succeeds to steal a Batman comic of a boy, but is called to see Dr. Peggitt, the Dentist. While the Dentist's back is turned, Bean plays with the chair and the equipment; he eventually numbs the leg of Mr. Peggitt with an injection of anesthetic, causing him fall over. After this, Bean decides to treat himself, but he doesn't know what tooth needs attention, and he performs the procedure on all his teeth. After Mr. Peggitt recovers, Bean leaves.

== Part 2 == Bean goes to the park for a picnic, but spots a little boy who has difficulty with his remote control boat. Generously, Bean open the remote control and inverts the circuits. Now, the controller works, but also controls an elettric wheelchair (unknown to Bean and the boy), with an old woman sitting. After Bean gives the controller to the boy, the wheelchair moves towards the boy, and after Bean moves away, we can hear a splash (maybe the wheelchair fell into the water, or the boy was knocked into the water by the wheelchair). Bean tries to have a picnic, but a wasp likes Mr. Bean's cupcake and refuses to leave him alone. He then kills the wasp swatting it between the pages of a book, but this only attracts the attention of an entire group of wasps. Bean runs away from his picnic site, and trows the cupcake in a car, and the wheelchair stops near the car.

This is Bean at his best, and this episode is the first where we can see Teddy. This was also Mr. Bean's highest rated episode. A must-see for all Mr. Bean fans!
