Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The Marty Feldman of his era, and then some, Rowan Atkinson ranks among the premier physical comedians of our time. His Mr. Bean programs, created in his post-Blackadder period, dazzled audiences worldwide, bringing Atkinson international acclaim and spawning a hit feature film. The pathetic but endearing Mr. Bean is a simple man who manages to get enmeshed and usually imperiled in various bits of tomfoolery, though he always digs himself out of his fixes in delightfully ingenious ways. This three-disc set compiles all 14 Bean episodes plus the documentary "The Story of Bean" and the never-before-seen sketches "Bus Stop" and "Library." Episodes are as follows:
  • Mr. Bean
  • The Return of Mr. Bean
  • The Curse of Mr. Bean
  • Mr. Bean Goes to Town
  • The Trouble with Mr. Bean
  • Mr. Bean Rides Again
  • Merry Christmas Mr. Bean
  • Mr. Bean in Room 206
  • Mind the Baby Mr. Bean
  • Do It Yourself Mr. Bean
  • Back to School Mr. Bean
  • Tee Off Mr. Bean
  • Good Night Mr. Bean
  • Hair by Mr. Bean of London

    Mr. Bean - The Whole Bean 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 22 reviews.

    Well as we all know Mr. Bean is great! However, I must warn the buyer that there have been some scenes cut to save space/money. (The Turkey contest in 'Merry Christmas Mr. Bean' and Buying the Recliner in 'Do it Yoursef MR. Bean', and possibly others.) So I would hardly call this a 'complete' collection. However, What IS there is comedy gold. Just be warned that some scenes you remember seeing on TV may not be there.

    Our family, ages 3 and up, have all enjoyed watching and re-watching this collection of Mr. Bean. It is appropriate for all ages and funny in a way that is appreciated by all audiences. Episodes are short and generally made up of physical humor. Hilarious and very engaging.

    The unparalleled physical comedy genius of Rowan Atkinson is most perfectly manifested in his greatest character, Mr. Bean. The sheer brilliance that shines through the blissfully oblivious Bean is a testament to his body of work as a whole and also the continuance of a comedic art typically associated with Chaplin, with whom Atkinson can surely be compared. Mr. Bean is paradoxical; simple, yet complex situations not-so subtly parody social convention while simultaneously delivering Monty Pythonesque silliness. The series is truly a must for fans of any brand of humor and a worthy collection to any library.

    For anyone who wants to laugh out loud! Easily one of the funniest things I have ever seen! Highly recommended. Mr. Bean is so dumb, he's hilarious!!

    The way Rowan Atkinson has created this character makes the series a definite "have to buy." Mr Bean is a sad man, lives alone with his bear, Teddy, but always seems to find himself in random places and funny situations. As a warning, if you have little kids, this series does contain a few "flashing" scenes, which is very common in the British culture. All in all, a definite must own series. (I have been wanting this one for a long time."

    Rowan Atkinson shows viewers what the true meaning of comedy is. His slapstick, physical humor is unparralelled in today's age and is easily compared to that of Chaplin. This is a DVD that every child and adult can spend hours laughing to.

    I remember watching various Mr. Bean episodes on PBS when they used to show them and how it used to make me smile. When I saw this Whole Bean collection was available, I grabbed it up immediately. I now find my entire family coming together to enjoy watching Mr. Bean with me. All I have to do is pop it in the DVD player every now and then, and I suddenly find everybody gathering around smiling and laughing.

    I had remembered watching the Mr. Bean show years ago on TV. When I saw the DVD on sale @Barnes & Noble, I thought my 12 year old Son would enjoy it. I liked the idea of it being "clean" humor also, not like most of the garbage out there. Anyway, when the DVD's arrived my Son started watching them and laughs out loud. My husband & I enjoy them also. Rowan Atkinson is so off beat and funny. Don't let the Mr. Bean movie deter you from trying this DVD. The TV skits are short and much funnier than the movie was.

    Bean is dumb which makes super funny. If you are depressed it will flip you around.

    This is great. I sat down for a couple of hours just basking in the nostalgic Mr. Bean episodes. I've seen most of the episodes, but there were a couple I hadn't seen. Five stars, easily.

    My daughter and I never get tired of watching Mr. Bean. It's great fun! We have seen all the episodes many times and they are still fun to watch.
