Goodnight, Mr. Bean - S1-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Mr Bean is waiting for his ticket number to come up, we see a schoolboy and his mother come in with a saucepan stuck on the boy's head. When the shot is framed to show Mr Bean and the boy, if you look closely you can just about make out the (slightly distorted) reflection of a camera tripod on the saucepan. (00:04:40)

The Trouble With Mr. Bean - S1-E8

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.

Mr. Bean In Room 426 - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: When Bean silences the guest in room 427 after they were playing loud music, he accidently locks himself out. Later when Bean crawls under a carpet past his room to hide from a kissing couple, room 427 has changed into a fire exit (you can see the room number has been replaced by a fire exit sign).

Tee Off, Mr. Bean - S1-E17

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)

Tee Off, Mr. Bean - S1-E17

Visible crew/equipment: Throughout the first sketch when he is loading the washing machine, the reflection of the cameraman can be seen reflected in the side of the silver washing machine. (00:01:15 - 00:07:50)

Back To School Mr. Bean - S1-E15

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning of the episode, when Mr. Bean is stealing the parking space of the other mini, he wheels it out and leaves it in the middle of the street so he can drive his car in. Then he walks over to the car to think how to get it to go. As he walks over, a boom mic and a boom operator in a blue jumper can be seen reflected in the mini's windows. He can also be seen when the troops are taking the car away. (00:02:20)

Mind The Baby, Mr. Bean - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: During the course of the episode, the baby's appearance changes between wide shots and close-ups. It is most noticable when Bean puts the baby into the Postman Pat car. (00:08:05)

Hair By Mr. Bean of London - S1-E19

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.

Mr. Bean Rides Again - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When the ambulance comes to pick up the heart attack victim, as the camera pans across the back of the van to see Mr. Bean with the jumpstart cables, a boom mic can be seen in the door windows at the top, whilst the dolly tracks and the dolly rig and the track can be seen reflected in the bottom windows. (00:05:55)

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

Continuity mistake: When Mr Bean finds Hubert's hat lying on his shelf beside the clock, he puts it in front of the clock to cover the clock up. But when Hubert's silhouette is seen at the end of the show, it shows him lifting his hat from the position it was originally in - beside the clock.

Back To School Mr. Bean - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene with Bean watches the calligraphist he places his feather on the right side of the paper, in the closeup it's instantly on the left side and when it cuts back to the far shot it's on the right side again. (00:06:00)

Mind The Baby, Mr. Bean - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Mr Bean attaches some balloons on the baby's pram, the balloons take the pram into the air. Mr Bean then bursts some balloons to get the pram out of the air, although in some shots you can see all the balloons still fully intact.

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

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Bean brings in his new chair after his "incident", he wheels his old chair over to the wall with a minimal gap to accommodate the new chair. But when he is accidentally dropping things out of the gap in his wall, he goes and looks at the mess he has made and the chair has moved forward considerably without anyone touching it. (00:14:50)

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.
