Rowan Atkinson announced today that he is retiring his Mr. Bean character.

Although the character hasn't made anything great in the last few years, this was one of my favorite characters growing up... Any other fans? Favorite bits?


When he meets the queen and the NYE episodes are 2 of my favorites

I love Johnny English to be honest, which is almost the same character. But Bean's....faces bother me.

I don't know that I've ever seen Johnny English to be honest... I'll have to check that out.

Ever seen The Thin Blue Line or Black Adder?

It's great, I love it. Same idea, sort of.

Nope, neither.

I'd recommend Black Adder if you like British comedy at all... different from American comedy but it's quite funny

I always preferred Mr. Bean just because I grew up on it, but I will reiterate that Black Adder should be seen by anyone who even remotely likes Mr. Bean or British Comedy

Loved Mr. Bean, but his character needed to be retired after the first American movie. "Mr. Bean Takes A Holiday" - Eghhhhh.

I don't know if the character should've been retired or not, but that movie was pretty horrible... I think he should've just gone back to doing the show again... maybe even if he just did a hour long show like once a year or something
