Hair By Mr. Bean of London - S1-E19

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.

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.

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.

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".

Mr. Bean - S1-E1

Question: Can anybody explain why Mr Bean, in the first episode, has a red mini when in every other episode he has his normal green one?


Chosen answer: I'm guessing it is because he bought a new car. At the end of the first Bean, he crashed the mini. You hear the crash and see his wheel bouncing down the road. Safe to assume it was a write-off.

Answer: Yeah he had a red Mini at the beginning but it ends up getting crashed at the end of the episode. And then in other episodes he has a green Mini.


Answer: I think it is because in the last episode his green car got smashed in the ceremony and he bought a red mini until he got a new green mini.
