Mr. Bean Rides Again - S1-E9

Factual error: Bean is seen connecting a set of jump leads to two large brass-like electrodes in a lighting column. These would never be present in real life - especially with so much conductive material on show.

The Trouble With Mr. Bean - S1-E8

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.

Mr. Bean Rides Again - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: In the opening scene of the episode, Mr. Bean goes around various places of his mini to get keys. During these actions, the camera pans with him. The cameraman's reflection is seen a few times during the pans in windows and sides of cars. He is wearing a checkered shirt and a green jacket. (00:00:55 - 00:01:40)

Tee Off, Mr. Bean - S1-E17

Audio problem: When Mr. Bean is at the Putt-Putt golf course, he watches a little boy trying to hit the ball. As the boy hits the ball with his club, the sound of the club hitting the ball comes three seconds after he hits the ball. (00:14:05)

Goodnight, Mr. Bean - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: When Mr. Bean goes back to the hospital desk clerk, and she asks him to take a number and then he does and throws the ticket in the bin and he gets the bin stuck on his hand. But you can plainly see that he is just holding onto the bin. (00:08:30)

The Library - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: When Mr Bean's book falls apart, he tries putting the book back together, and he holds one page up to the camera and it has a slight reflection as if it is glossy paper. As far as I know old books like the one Mr Bean had don't have pages like that. It's an obviously fake book.

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

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)

Mr. Bean Rides Again - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: In the train scene when Mr. Bean plugs his ears with his socks you can see that he didn't use the ones he was actually wearing before. Once he took them off he placed them in front of him but reached slightly to his right for the ones he plugged in his ears. Also those where still flat like after ironing them and didn't look worn at all.

Tee Off, Mr. Bean - S1-E17

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Mr. Bean takes the sign for The Bus Stop, he drives away with another person. As the camera turns, you can see the cameraman in a yellow jacket ducking down in the bottom of the back window. Also, you can see an old man in a hat watching the filming, he is over by the tree reflected in the window. (00:16:50)

Goodnight, Mr. Bean - S1-E18

Other mistake: When calling their next patient, the nurses look at the small screen to find out what number is next. After Mr. Bean has rotated the device, however, a nurse calls number 92 before the screen displays the 9. (00:06:22)

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

Revealing mistake: At the end when Mr. Bean blows up the paint and it splatters all over the walls in his apartment, he comes back in and his doorknob is covered in wet white paint which he pushes shut. Only problem is that when he pulls his fingers back, there is no wet paint whatsoever on them. (00:23:30)

Trivia: The original video releases of the early 1990s include a handful of scenes that are not present on the recent DVD releases.

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?

OL1V3R666

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.

Soylent Purple

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.

Dan23

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.
