    Mr Bean is a laugh a minute. Everything he does he finds a unique way of doing, such as making a sandwich in the park using his socks, trying to get out of the car park without paying, plus getting home with all those tins of paint, a brilliant character and finely acted. Bravo, Mr Bean.

    yes he is creative for sure.

    ike when he paints his flat ge first rtries using teddys head.hehe.
    then he covers everything in newspaper everything including the gold door handle.ha.

    he then lights a fuise which is attached to the tin of paint and bang it works.
    but he gets in a tizzy as he cant find the gold door knob.

    and he does not like that three wheeler car.

    Well, The Curse of Mr Bean off ITunes:


    Do you think Bean ever goes after those boys who caused him to fall from the diving board?


    Likewise, I wish i could be a fly on the wall when the parents of the little girl in the yellow swimsuit realise that she's got a pair of men's swim trunks with her as well as her snorkel.


    I wonder if the women's swimming class that Bean flashes are traumatised for long?

    I didn't even know that this thread had existed! - thanks for bumping it up, Victoria.

    I always enjoy watching the Curse of Mr Bean. Now, those boys would roughly be the same age as myself when the episode was made in 1990 - in fact, they both reminded me of two lads who were in my year at school!

    I do like how they gave him a helping hand (or rather, foot) to get him into the water from the high platform, and that his trunks came off in the water which the girl fishes out of the water, so he has to get out of the pool naked before causing the old "harassment, alarm and distress" cliché to some teenage girls getting out of their changing rooms.

    Angus Deayton makes two appearances in that episode - the first is in the swimming pool sketch, telling Bean to get out of the pool when he tries to get in via the orange kids' slide, hence Bean going right up to the top diving board before bottling it. The second appearance is when Bean sits on a park bench in the second half and makes a sandwich, and Deayton plays the straight man there. I doubt that they were both supposed to be the same character however.

    I have to say that I love Mr Bean and the fact that the 1990s was only 20 hours old when we first saw his first episode. I suppose that from Merry Christmas Mr Bean in 1992 it became themed episodes instead of unrelated sketches, although it did return to unrelated sketches for the final couple of episodes - the episode's title referring to one of the sketches only.

    On Monday 5th July 1993 (according to my research) I had some mock examinations all day at school, and what did I find on ITV when I got home that evening? A repeat of the very first Mr Bean episode where he was in an examination hall and was trying to cheat by copying Paul "Watching" Bown's exam answers, and I had enough of exams for that day! Talk about de ja vu! Great to see Trevor McDonald lookalike Rudolph Walker as the invigilator in that sketch, and that Love They Neighbour was not quite the end of his acting career.

    And for years I had a thing about the boy's mother who had appeared in the dentists' waiting room in The Trouble With... I got her autograph a few years ago when I wrote to her via her agent.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Certainly a new episode was a "must see" for me, & would be the talking point of the school the day afterwards.
    I got myself a copy of the Diary for myself in WHSmith back in 1992 - I did ask for it as a Christmas present that year, but I just couldn't wait to get it! The diary isn't one which is written in an "Adrian Mole" sense, but a "used" council diary (do they really have them in real life?) with Bean (Atkinson's) handwriting in it throughout. I have seen pre-printed signed photographs of Mr Bean written exactly like that!

    I used to look forward to Atkinson's appearances as Bean on chat shows such as Des O'Connor Tonight promoting the Diary, as well as shows like the National Lottery and Live and Kicking. He was everywhere circa 1993 - a Charlie Chaplin of the 1990s if you like.

    I suppose that playing a character like Mr Bean is so easy by virtue of the fact that an actor would have very few lines to remember, and also the fact that the episodes can be seen in other countries around the world where very little translation is needed. And apart from the nudity from time to time, he is inoffensive - well, he hardly uses bad language, does he?

    I got the DVD box set for Christmas as both me & my wife like Mr Bean.

    There are a large selection of subtitles in different languages, which shows how easy it was to export.

    I had the diary for Christmas 1992, & still have it, some entries inside are hilarious.

    That little girl who walks off with Bean's swim trunks looks soo young - you'd think her parents would be watching her closely just because of her age and notice her snorkeling the trunks - although i guess that's part of the joke that we don't see the aftermath when the child has to explain.

    I bet that the girl would be in her early 30s now considering it was filmed back in 1990.

    I have a family photo from that era taken at my local swimming centre of the beginners swimmers class and EVERY ONE of the small girls is wearing some variation of the swimsuit the little girl in The Curse of Mr Bean wore.

    And of course even if eighties culture and fashion hadn't "hung over", since there was no year zero, 1990 is part of the previous decade.

    One of the boys at the swimming pool looks like one of cousins did at the time, which makes it even more funny.
