Characters and recurring props
The title character, played by Rowan Atkinson, is often a childish buffoon who brings various unusual schemes and contrivances to everyday tasks. He lives alone in the address of Flat 2, 12 Arbour Road, Highbury, which is more often than not noticed in his trademark tweed jacket as well as a skinny red tie. Also, he usually wears an electronic digital calculator watch. Mr. Bean rarely speaks, and when he is doing, it can be generally only some mumbled words which are in the comically low-pitched voice. His first name (he names himself "Bean" to others) and profession, if any, should never be mentioned. In the first film adaptation, "Mr." appears on his passport inside the "first name" field, and he is shown employed like a guard at London's National Gallery. Mr Bean
Mr. Bean often seems not aware basic facets of how a world works, and the programme usually features his attempts at what might normally be looked at simple tasks, including skating, employing a tv, redecorating, or likely to church. The humour largely originates from his original (and sometimes absurd) solutions to problems and his awesome total disregard for some individuals when solving them, his pettiness, and occasional malevolence.
At the outset of episode two onwards, Mr. Bean falls from your sky in the laser beam, accompanied by a choir singing Ecce homo qui est faba ("Behold the guy that is a bean"), recorded by Southwark Cathedral Choir in 1990. These opening sequences were initially in white and black in episodes two and three, and were intended through the producers to demonstrate his status as an "ordinary man cast in the spotlight". However, later episodes showed Mr. Bean dropping through the night sky in a deserted London street from the backdrop of St Paul's Cathedral. At the conclusion of episodes three and 6 he's also shown being sucked right back up in the sky within the respective background scenes (black scene in episode 3 and street scene in episode 6). Atkinson has acknowledged that Bean "has a slightly alien aspect to him". From the animated series (episode, "Double Trouble") he is taken inside a spacecraft with "aliens" who look just like him and even their very own plushy toys. In the obvious homage, the aliens send him back home inside a laser beam and music similar to the opening with the original Mr. Bean series. Whether Bean is an extraterrestrial is not clear. Mr Bean
