Mr. Bean

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".

The Return Of Mr. Bean - S1-E2

Trivia: Just before the scene where Mr Bean meets the Queen, the commentary is actually done by Rowan Atkinson.


Merry Christmas Mr. Bean - S1-E10

Trivia: When Mr. Bean moves the marching band across in front of the manger, the military music he hums was also used as the theme song of Blackadder Goes Forth (in which Rowan Atkinson also stars).

Trivia: The series authors have stated that the opening sequence is not meant to imply that Mr. Bean is an alien; rather, he's a random ordinary guy "thrown into the spotlight". The first UK screenings of the first episodes did not have this opening sequence, but it was added to them when they were repeated and re-released.

Tee Off, Mr. Bean - S1-E17

Trivia: They use the theme music from the TV show The Vicar of Dibley when Mr Bean gets in to a car with the golf ball.


The Trouble With Mr. Bean - S1-E8

Trivia: Up until this episode we have never seen the driver of the blue Reliant that's always had the misfortune of running into Mr. Bean. In this episode that same car is parked in front of the dentist office which is then pushed back by Bean's car. It is possible then that the unseen driver could either be the woman with small child or the patient who leaves just before Bean meets the dentist.
