Mr. Bean is a British sitcom that follows the comedic misadventures of the titular character, played by Rowan Atkinson, as he finds himself in various situations that always seem to go awry. The show originally aired on ITV1 from 1990 to 1995, and remains popular to this day for its physical comedy, silent gags, and Atkinson's masterful performance.

The show's main character, Mr. Bean, is a socially awkward and somewhat childish man who lives alone in a small flat in London. He has few friends and no real love life, preferring to spend his time indulging in bizarre hobbies and activities that often result in chaos and mayhem. Despite his lack of social skills, however, Bean is a well-meaning man who is always trying to do the right thing – even if his efforts usually end up making things worse.

One of the most memorable aspects of Mr. Bean is its lack of dialogue. While there are occasional bits of spoken dialogue from the other characters, Bean himself rarely speaks more than a few words at a time. Instead, much of the show's humor comes from Atkinson's exaggerated body language and facial expressions, as well as the clever visual gags that the show's writers and directors would come up with for each episode.

The supporting cast of Mr. Bean is also noteworthy. Robin Driscoll plays Mr. Bean's long-suffering neighbor, who is often the unwitting victim of Bean's antics. Matilda Ziegler appears as Bean's girlfriend, who finds his strange behavior charming but is continually exasperated by his thoughtlessness. Angus Deayton plays a stoic newsreader who often reports on Bean's latest exploits, while Sophie Thompson and Richard Wilson play various other supporting characters who get caught up in Bean's crazy schemes.

Perhaps the most iconic aspect of Mr. Bean, however, is the character's car – a bright green 1976 British Leyland Mini 1000. The car is a constant source of frustration for Bean, as it is prone to breaking down, getting stolen, or otherwise causing him trouble. However, the car also serves as a key part of many episodes' storylines, leading to some of the show's most memorable moments.

Throughout its five-year run, Mr. Bean remained a hugely popular show in the UK and beyond. Its combination of physical comedy, visual gags, and quirky characters made it a favorite of both children and adults alike, and helped cement Rowan Atkinson's status as one of the greatest comedians of his generation. Even today, more than 25 years after it originally aired, Mr. Bean remains a beloved classic of British television that continues to entertain audiences around the world.

Mr. Bean is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (15 episodes). The series first aired on January 1, 1990.
