Bean goes to the launderette. Firstly, he realises the price of washing has increased, so he is forced to pull out a spare coin from a specially designed envelope in his trousers. A man (Grant Masters) arrives and then he pushes Bean away into the next washing machine. Bean then proceeds to place his laundry (which consists of some shirts, an inflatable toy, a lampshade, Teddy, a welcome mat, oversized fuzzy dice and a few pairs of underpants) into the washing machine.
However, Bean then realises he is wearing underwear he wanted to wash, so he stands behind a partition to change out of them, accidentally getting his trousers mixed up with a lady’s skirt. As Bean walks past the man, this escalates the taunting he receives from the bully. Bean then finds that another pair of underwear has accidentally not been put into the machine, but by this time the machine has already been started, so he simply tries to put them on, but the bully interferes by stepping on them.
So Bean decides to take his revenge on the man by switching the
Bean has just bought a portable television for his flat. When he arrives home he finds that he can’t open his car door, as the box is strapped to his car, so he crawls out through the window. He then gets the television out of its box, and it takes him a while to realise that he has it back to front and that the plug needs to be wired (which he mysteriously manages to do by simply screwing the flex in). Once he has successfully powered it up, he finds that he can’t position the aerial to get good reception. When he discovers that he can only get reception if he sits in a part of the room where he cannot see the screen (even if he turns the television to face him), he is distraught. Ingeniously, he strips down, covers up with the TV’s cardboard packaging container, and assembles his clothes — underwear and all — on the chair, and he finally gets a clear picture – just before his pre-paid electricity meter runs out, much to his annoyance.Bean tries out his new Polaroid camera in
4th September 2015 – To celebrate 25 years of Mr Bean, Rowan Atkinson will be making a very special appearance in character to mark this mega milestone. #MrBean25
We are recreating the iconic scene from the Live Action TV series where Mr Bean drives his car while sitting in an armchair on the roof, because his car is too full of presents! The location is a closely guarded secret but we can tell you that the stunt will be taking place at a London location to match Mr Bean’s iconic status.
2015 has so far been a memorable year for Mr Bean with the launch of a new Animated Series in over 70 territories worldwide to great ratings success and an increase in fans on the official Mr Bean Facebook page to 63 million worldwide. New Licensing Agents have been appointed in Asia, Canada and Germany with products launches including Anniversary DVDs, gift ranges, books, greeting cards, apparel and a Solar Dancing Mr Bean!
Unable to park his car, Bean spots a similar-looking Mini (albeit with missing wing mirrors) and substitutes the cars. Then two Army Cadets spot him pushing his car and help him. While they push the car Bean slowly closes the door and runs behind a wall and makes a humorous sound. Then he confuses a troop of Army Cadets, while the commandant is gone for a while, by coughing and causing them to respond by standing in unusual ceremonial stances, and is confronted by the angry commandant when he returns.
He then gets in another man’s (played by Christopher Driscoll) way, messes up a stamp album, distracts and frightens a calligrapher, and gets paper stuck to his body after using a Van de Graaff generator. When a weaving lady takes the offending piece of paper, the static electricity causes her skirt to rise up and cover her upper body, revealing her legs and her white panties. Bean promptly exits the scene while other people try to pull down the skirt.
In the chemistry laboratory, Bean experiments with several chemicals and makes an unstable chemical reaction, eventually causing a violent explosion, with blue smoke emerging from the
For a weekend, Mr. Bean goes to an amusement park at Southsea, Portsmouth, but has difficulty finding it, especially after some people at the beach give him contradicting directions, but is eventually successful in locating the amusement park. However, he accidentally leaves his Mini’s boot unlocked and the handle pulls a baby’s pram with it to the funfair. Once Bean notices the “kidnapped” baby, he initially attempts to leave him in a crowd of chatting people with babies, but they obliviously leave the baby behind when they go, and Bean reluctantly goes back for him. Bean, however, sees a policeman outside the amusement park entrance and races to find him, but loses him amongst a crowd of teenagers buying fake police helmets from a souvenir store. Bean eventually realises that he has no choice but to look after the baby while enjoying himself. Bean unchains a guard dog and uses the chain to tie the baby’s pram while taking the baby with him on various rides. First, he goes to the dodgems, but in his hurry to pay the man in charge, he puts the baby’s feet on the pedal and has difficulty getting back to the dodgem
Bean invites his two best friends Rupert and Hubert for a New Year’s party, but he apparently does not have a good party lined up. When he goes to prepare a snack he discovers that he has run out of Twiglets, so he takes twigs off a nearby branch outside his window and coats them in Marmite to disguise them; he also substitutes sugared vinegar for Champagne, and makes party hats from newspaper. Feeling bored, at 10:20 while Bean is out of the room, Rupert and Hubert turn the clock in the living room to just before midnight.
When the clock chimes, they sing “Auld Lang Syne” to celebrate the new year and then leave (though Hubert leaves his hat behind – see Act 3), saying that they are tired. However, they merely go into the apartment across the hall, where a swinging New Year’s party is taking place. Bean is in bed when the real New Year begins. Thinking that his clock had passed midnight, he checks his other one (actually showing midnight). His blood boils with anger when he finds out Rupert and Hubert have deceived him and attended the larger party next door. Bean
On Christmas Eve, Bean visits Harrods during a very busy Christmas shopping spree, causing his usual brand of chaos by behaving rather inappropriately while inside such a prestigious department store. After parking directly at the front of the store and harassing a man dressed as Father Christmas by pulling his fake beard, Bean proceeds to shop for Christmas decorations, subjecting them to his usual scrutiny—if it breaks, do not buy it. He also tests some Christmas lights using the same socket used for the exterior Christmas lights, blacking out the exterior of the store in the process.
He then starts playing with an in-store display, performing a rather inaccurate Nativity scene involving a T. rex, two army tanks, a Dalek, a helicopter, a delivery truck and also the bedroom of a dollhouse where he transports the figures to. The store manager stops him by putting a figurine of a policeman onto the set and gives him his bag of Christmas shopping and Bean leaves while the store manager looks on.
Upon seeing another man dressed as Father Christmas he pulls the beard again like earlier, only for the beard to be real, causing Bean to make
For a bank holiday weekend, Mr. Bean decides to stay at the Queens Hotel, but parks his Mini by the entrance and fights with the bellboy over his suitcase, believing him to be a thief, although he later trusts the bellboy with his steering wheel to move his Mini to a parking space. As Bean checks in, a quiet man checks in as well and Bean becomes determined to beat the man to his hotel room (425), but the man gets to the lift before him. In retaliation, Bean runs up the staircase and stops the lift on every floor, he almost succeeds, but due to a rather faulty lock, the man ultimately enters his room before Bean enters his.
Once inside his room, Bean immediately starts investigating and personalising his new surroundings, such as flicking the light switch on and off rapidly, jumping on the bed, changing the lamp shade for his own, placing his own curtains on the window, placing Teddy in his makeshift “bed” in the drawer and accidentally decapitating him in the process, using a drill to put holes in the walls to hang his own picture frames (the noise can be heard
It is eight o’clock in the morning. Bean has set several alarms to wake him up, but it is clear that he has no intention of getting out of bed just yet: his grandfather clock chimes the hour to wake him up, but he takes no notice; his battery-powered alarm clock sounds, but he places it in a glass of water to silence it; a hose connected to his coffeemaker sprays hot water on his right foot, but he uses his toe to block the hose. Eventually, fifty minutes later, Bean does get up, makes his bed in his sleep, and after some difficulty shaving when his electric razor catches his nasal hairs, Bean realises that he is late for his dental appointment at nine o’clock.
To save time, he decides to get dressed and brush his teeth while driving to the dentist, using a brick to hold down the accelerator. In the process, Bean accidentally knocks down a dustbin. In order to put his trousers on, he moves onto the back seat and operates the steering wheel with his feet. After brushing his teeth, he shoots screenwash into his mouth to rinse it. When he spits
Bean goes to a public swimming pool, where he uses a manual arm to get his ticket at the car park. Once in the pool, Bean wants to go down the kiddie slide, but after the lifeguard (Angus Deayton) refuses to let him, Bean tries out the super-high diving board instead. Frightened by the height, Bean makes a few cowardly attempts to jump, but chickens out, and finds himself attempting to climb off the edge. Two impatient boys eventually push him off by stomping on his hand. Bean loses his swimming trunks in the process, and is unable to retrieve them as a small girl fishes them out of the pool with a snorkel. A naked Bean tries to get back to the changing room unseen just as everyone is told to leave the pool and almost succeeds, but the lifeguard appears near the change room. Bean hides behind a corner, but as he is doing this, a group of female swimmers appear behind him. They scream at the sight of his nude body and Bean runs off.Bean refuses to pay the ridiculously high parking price of £16.00 at the swimming pool car park, and tries to leave
Bean sees a busker playing a tenor saxophone and wants to drop some change in his saxophone case, thinking that giving him change will allow him access to the nearby tunnel. When he finds that he has no change (and avoids using a paper bill), he places a handkerchief on the ground and dances in a rather silly way to the music. Eventually, an elderly woman stops by and leaves him a coin, which he then transfers into the busker’s saxophone case and proceeds to walk through the tunnel.Bean tries out his new American Express charge card at Allders department store. After appearing to suffocate whilst going through the perfume department, he does his shopping by first testing everything he wants to buy—he gets a toothbrush out of its packet and uses it (then puts it back on the shelf in the opened packet and takes another one), tries on a bath towel, peels a potato with a peeler he wants to buy, and pulls a large fish out of his pocket to see if it fits on a frying pan. He also chooses the telephone from the receptionist’s desk as the one he wants and takes it
Mr. Bean is driving to his mathematics exam and he accidentally drives pass a Reliant three wheeler, nearly tipping it over (which would become a running gag throughout the series). Once he has taken his seat in the exam room, he begins to irritate a fellow candidate (Paul Bown) by getting out an alarm clock, many spare pens and a number of mascots, including a Pink Panther doll (which has its tail sticking out between its legs, giving the appearance of an erection). Bean has studied trigonometry, but when the exam begins and he pulls out a calculus paper from the envelope he assumes he has studied the wrong subject. He spends the duration of his two hours trying to cheat before finally breaking down (to the point of crying out “Oh, mummy!”) and falling asleep. Towards the end of the exam, the invigilator (Rudolph Walker) gives instructions on what to do with the exam papers. From this, Bean realises that there were two papers in the envelope: a green calculus paper, and a white trigonometry paper, with the student given a choice as to which to do (though the invigilator logically should have stated this from the
Mr. Bean wants to go to the post office, but finds (after using four keys in sequence, each to unlock where the next is stored) that his car battery is dead, so he decides to catch a bus instead. He reaches the bus stop, where there is a man already waiting. The man then has a heart attack. Bean tries to revive him by stomping on him, stuffing pills down his throat, trying mouth-to-mouth resuscitation (with the man’s magazine) and using electric shock treatment, using jump leads connected to a nearby lamppost. This initially works, but he forgets to remove the jump leads from his hands when the man offers a handshake, giving the man another electric shock, making him pass out again. An ambulance arrives, but while the paramedics treat the man, Bean uses the ambulance battery to jumpstart his Mini. Bean drives off, leaving the ambulance disabled, due to a dead battery, forcing the paramedics to call for another ambulance.Bean heads to a postbox, but on the way he accidentally swallows his postage stamp. He offers to post a letter for a lady, pretends that he has posted it, but hangs on to it until she

An extraordinary amount of pupils dressed as mini Mr. Beans for the day, going to lessons and assembly in costume to show how easy it is to take part in this year’s fundraising campaign. Teachers also joined in the fun, with Year 1 teacher Miss Hanchett wearing a turkey prop on her head as a tribute to Mr. Bean’s famous Christmas episode.
Pablo Sved, age 6, who dressed as mini Mr. Bean complete with tie and teddy bear said: “Mr Spooner showed us clips of Mr. Bean in assembly and it was really funny. I borrowed my Dad’s jacket and tie to dress up today!”
Deputy Headteacher Andy Spooner said, “We chose to be Mr. Bean because Rowan Atkinson studied in Oxford. We thought it would be amusing to be one of his characters for the day! We love doing new and fun things, and this was perfect for us to all do together.”
