Mr. Bean (1989)

3 corrected entries in Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean

Starring: Rowan Atkinson

Genres: Comedy, Family

Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean - S1-E13

Corrected entry: Bean must have an amazing hi-fi system if it can produce sound without having any speakers. There are no speakers visible anywhere in his flat.

Correction: Well, my father once purchased a hi-fi system that looks as if it needs speakers to produce any sound at all. He bought speakers for it too, but then one day when the speakers broke and he disconnected them, he found out that there was actually sound coming from the box itself, from an integrated speaker at the bottom. Likely Mr. Bean's is the same way.

Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean - S1-E13

Corrected entry: When Mr. Bean goes to the January sales, there is a huge queue of people waiting outside the store he visits - but the roads outside it are completely empty of cars. Since the shop is in London (you can see a London Transport sign on a bus shelter), which is usually choked with traffic anyway, this is highly incongruous.

Correction: You have to realise this is first thing in the morning on New Year's Day, which is a bank holiday, so most people will still be at home, therefore causing the roads to be quiet. It is not stated where the department store is set, so it could be a quieter suburban street, not necessarily Central London. Also when Bean finishes his shopping and loading his car, you do see more cars than when the store opened. I know this because I have worked on New Year's Day in London and it is very quiet.

Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean - S1-E13

Corrected entry: When Mr. Bean is going to bed and he hears the other people across the hallway cheering "Happy New Year", Mr. Bean looks at the clock he has in his drawer and it reads 12:00 yet the second hand is not moving. Either it failed as soon as he picked it up or they froze the shot.

Correction: On analogue alarm clocks, the alarm is triggered when the hour hand passes over the alarm hand to complete the circuit to make it beep. In 99% of clocks of this type, the alarm hand is coloured typically red or yellow to distinguish it from the second hand, if one exists. In Bean's case, the shot isn't frozen in post-production (you can see Bean moving it slightly) therefore the yellow hand must be the alarm hand.

Mistakes

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.

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".
