Merry Christmas Mr. Bean - S1-E10

Corrected entry: When Bean starts making up his own tunes whilst being in temporary control of the band, it is quite obvious in some shots that the band members are not following his instructions and are actually playing the tunes from the music sheets fixed to their instruments.

Correction: It is quite correct for the musicians to be playing the music from the score in front of them while reading the beat from the conductor. There is no way for a conductor to convey a melody to the band.

Merry Christmas Mr. Bean - S1-E10

Corrected entry: Bean supposedly unplugs the lights on the outside of the Harrods building when he is testing his own set of lights, but if you watch closely, some of the Harrods lights go off moments after the others. (When they're plugged in again, the same sort of thing happens: some of the lights come on moments after the others.)

Correction: This isn't a mistake, this isn't unique to Harrods and I'm willing to bet that the same thing happens with your Christmas lights at home. The effect is a trick of the light and also because it takes slightly longer for the power to reach the bulbs further along the track. The sequence with Harrods building lights is the same thing only on a much larger scale so it's far more noticeable.

More for Mr. Bean


Mr. Bean places his shoe on top of the car in the bottom right corner. But when he jumps out in front of the car, it is suddenly at the front in the middle.



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".
