    Mr. Bean
    "The name's Bean. Mr. Bean."
    Gender: Male
    Type: Buffoonish Television Icon
    Species: Human
    Portrayed by: Rowan Atkinson
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Mr. Bean


    Mr. Bean is the titular main protragonist of the franchise of the same name. Mr. Bean lives in Flat 2, 12 Arbour Road, Highbury, London, England. His first name, which he refers to as Bean, and his profession, if any, are never mentioned. In the first film adaptation, Bean, "Mr." appears on his passport in the "first name" field, and he is shown employed as a guard at London's National Gallery.

    Why He Is a Very Brilliant and Funny Dude

    1. Mr. Bean can pull out some great comedy due to his entertaining nature as a buffoon, which works really well in the source material he comes from. Sure, he barely talks, but he can still bring up a good show.
    2. In comparison to his live-action incarnation, Mr. Bean is a lot more competent in the animated series.
    3. He's a friend of all living things. Photographing the wildlife in "In the Wild" and even being unable to bring himself to kill the captured titular animal in "The Mole".
    4. Mr. Bean's actions may be questionable yet comical, but he's not really malicious. So he's more childlike in a good way. So there's a real heart underneath all the madness.
      • While he is mostly childish, dim-witted, and foolish, Mr. Bean himself is not cringe-worthy like other childish people nowadays, as he's a very entertaining character who manages to make people laugh without any dialogue at all.
    5. Mr. Bean comes up with some absurd yet reasonable solutions to problems that can actually work. Sure they're bizarre, but it's rather unique in a humorous way like redecorating.
    6. Despite being an Idiot Houdini and Karma Houdini, his stupidity, idiocy, charm, likability, and scot-free actions are what make him so entertaining, funny, and overall hilarious
    7. He is a fantastic example of a Karma Houdini who is likable, hilarious, funny, and well-written
    8. He turned out to be one of the most iconic characters in the United Kingdom, especially since he was able to appeal in hundred of territories worldwide.
      • There is a reason that happened. And the legit reason would be how he uses little intelligible dialogue, making it accessible to people who know little or no English to understand him.
    9. Rowan Atkinson does a brilliant job portraying him.

    Bad Qualities

    1. Although he barely talks much, he has bad social skills, which leads him into some antics.
    2. While mostly just played for laughs, his childish nature and foolishness can still get on some people's nerves.
      • Additionally, while he is more competent in the animated series, he can occasionally be mean-spirited or out-of-character in some episodes.
    3. In the fifth season of his animated show, he became an insecure butt-monkey who takes things for granted and it makes him worse when things don't go his way.
    4. He can be very selfish in some episodes, though it may be because of his childishness and lack of social skills.
    5. He's obviously not a good boyfriend to Irma overall as he's often pretty useless, embarrassing, insensitive, and even mean to her in some occasions.

    Trivia

    • His first name (he names himself Bean to others) and profession, if any, are never mentioned.
    • 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.
    • He is known to have a criminal record due to the acts he has committed. For example:
      • Accidentally head-butting the Queen.
      • Vandalizing hotel property and wandering around the corridors naked.
      • Blowing up a car, littering and destroying a lady's groceries while trying to get back a golf ball.
      • However, he has not been cautioned or arrested over any of these, so the general idea is Mr Bean is allowed to get away with committing the acts.
    • Mr. Bean claims his tweed suit was given to him as a gift.
    • The character's name was not decided until after the first episode had been produced; a number of other vegetable-influenced names such as "Mr. Cauliflower" were explored.
