Continuity mistake: When Mr Bean talks to his teddy bear before leaving his car, he says he'll be back in about an hour, at around 3. This would mean he's leaving the car at 2. But later, he arrives for the start of the pet show, which the blackboard states was due to start at 1.Moose
Continuity mistake: When Mr Bean is trying to get out of the car park through the entrance, he uses a wheelie-bin to simulate a car to get the gate to open. After he's out and shifted the bin, he's blocked in by another car. We see a hand take the next ticket (presumably belonging to the driver of the incoming car) but the car pulling up in front of Mr Bean is so far away from the ticket machine its not possible for him to take it and drive into the car park in the short amount of time seen, plus we never see or hear anybody get out of the car to get the ticket.Neil Jones
Continuity mistake: In the scene at the country fair, Mr Bean interrupts a boy doing the buzzer game. When Mr Bean is on his second go at this puzzle and stands up after unplugging the device, you can see the same boy come round a table behind Mr Bean. Cut to the next shot, the boy has disappeared from where he should be behind Mr Bean and can now be seen walking across the back of the hall.Neil Jones
Continuity mistake: In the sketch where Mr Bean drives to the dentist, there is a part where he starts to dress himself. If you look out of the window, the scenery keeps changing dramatically. In some shots he is driving along a single lane carriageway with buildings on the sides and in other shots he his driving along a dual carriageway with no buildings on the sides, all while he is getting dressed.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. Bean is on the roof of his car in the armchair, he has a brick in front of the tire. When he is ready to go he pulls it away and drops it. But as he drives away you can see in the background that the brick has disappeared. (00:12:15)
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bean is dressing in his car on the way to the dentist, just after he puts his shirt on the camera cuts to show him from the rear of the car. In this shot he has his dress pants on already, but he hadn't put them on yet and in subsequent shots they are gone again.
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bean goes to get some coffee to switch with the rude man's liquid detergent, when he places the coffee down on the washing machine, you can tell it is a coffee which has milk in it. But when the man tips it into his washing machine, you can easily see it is plain black coffee. (00:10:05)
Continuity mistake: At the country fair and during the pet show segment, when the boy in the blue T-shirt is putting his dog into position for the obedience test, he can be seen standing behind the dog as we look at it, but on the next camera cut, he's standing in front of the dog.Neil Jones
Continuity mistake: After Mr. Bean has replaced the detergent with the coffee, he takes the detergent back to his seat and you can see through the plastic cup that it is only half full. But when Mr. Bean goes to take a drink out of it when the other man gets suspicious, you can now see the detergent is almost at the top. (00:10:50)
Trivia: The Latin lyrics used at the beginning are "Ecce homo qui est farba, qui est farba, qui est farba", which mean "Behold the man who is a bean". At the end, it's identical, but "Ecce" is changed to "Vale"; "Farewell, man who is a bean." Before and after the advert break (in the UK version), the lyrics are "Fin de partie primae" and "Pars secunda" - "End of Part One" and "Part Two".Moose
