Mr. Rowan Julian Bean is a slow-witted, sometimes ingenious, selfish and generally likable buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and connivances to everyday tasks.


[hide]*1 Background


He lives alone in his small flat in Highbury, North London, and is almost always seen in his trademark tweed jacket and skinny red tie. Mr. Bean rarely speaks, and when he does, it is generally only a few mumbled words which are in a comically low-pitched voice. He has been shown in the first episode to have a strong knowledge of trigonometry.

His ingenuity often leads him to finding ridiculous and impractical solutions to these problems (such as painting a room by putting fireworks into a paint can). Bean will often get confused at the world, not understanding what is going on. He is also quite selfish - if someone is doing something he doesn't like, he gets very agitated. He also does not like people taking his things.

Mr. Bean often seems unaware of basic aspects of the way the world works, and the programme usually features his attempts at what would normally be considered simple tasks, such as going swimming, redecorating or going to church. The humour largely comes from his original (and often absurd) solutions to problems and his total disregard for others when solving them, his pettiness, and occasional malevolence.

The Original Television Series[4]EditEdit

At the beginning of episode two onwards, Mr. Bean falls from the sky in a beam of light, accompanied by a choir singing Ecce homo qui est faba ('Behold the man who is a bean"). These opening sequences were initially in black and white in episodes 2 and 3, and were intended by the producers to show his status as an "ordinary man cast into the spotlight". However, later episodes showed Mr. Bean dropping from the night sky in a deserted London street, against the backdrop of St. Pauls Cathedral. Atkinson himself has acknowledged that Bean "has a slightly alien aspect to him".


Mr. Bean is mostly seen wearing a brown tweed suit, a white shirt, a thin red tie, black trousers and black shoes. Occasionally, he will change his outfit (often to suit the scene he is in). He is sometimes seen holding a brown suitcase. Robert Pattinson the new Mr Bean still wears the clothes


  • His first name (he names himself "Bean" to others) and profession, if any, are never mentioned. Atkinson has said at the time of the first film's release that he imagines Bean's first name to be Julian, thus making Julian Bean a reference to famous guitarist and lutenist Julien Bream.
  • In the first film adaption, the 'name' "Mr." appears on his passport in the "first name" field, and he is shown employed as a guard at London's National. In Mr. Bean's Holiday, however, his name is listed on his passport as "Rowan".)
  • Mr. Bean (a.k.a Mr. Bin) was appear in the UNTV show "Good Morning Kuya!"..
