Mr. Bean is a British comedy television show starring Rowan Atkinson that ran from 1990 to 1995. The title character was created by Atkinson while he was attending Oxford University and studying for his masters. His character implores a childlike behavior in a grown mans body and he rarely speaks and instead mumbles. His facial expressions and interactions with people and things with unique solutions to problems is what make Mr. Bean hysterical entertainment. The Golden Rose, a prestigious award in the United Kingdom was presented to the Mr. Bean show for its first episode that aired on television. In 1991 and 1994 Atkinson was nominated on three occasions for Best Entertainment Performance. This humorous sitcom went onto become an animated cartoon series from 2002 to 2004. Two movies featuring Mr. Bean have been released and grossed over $250 million dollars internationally with Atkinson as the main character. The silliness of the Mr. Bean and the funny situations he gets himself into make the movies and television shows worth watching. Recently Mr. Bean took on a new situation at the 2012 opening ceremonies at the Olympics in London, England. Atkinson would play one note on a synthesizer amongst the musicians. Being bored playing just the one note, Atkinson finds himself jealous of the person playing the grand piano and starts dreaming. He sneezed and needed his handkerchief in his bag behind him which then leads to more funny outcomes. His funny antics were a grand way to open the Olympics. Mr. Bean is globally known for his funny sense of humor to this day. Reruns of previous shows are repeatedly shown internationally from the United States to Singapore and syndicated networks. The character Atkinson created and developed is one of the most amusing entertainment one could watch.
