I find it hard to believe that there are people out there who do not find Mr.Bean funny! In fact there are several who admit to hating him and actor Rowan Atkinson!! Really? And there are idiots who like Boybands!!
Anyway, I like both Mr.Bean and Mr. Bean : The Animated Series, favouring the animated version a lot more, since I think it is very endearing and cute. I have seen most of the episodes of both several times and still enjoy it. My younger nephew Adhitya, loves both shows very much and he has memorized the events that take place. Even he has said that he prefers the cartoon version over the live version.
So how is the animated version different than Rowan Atkinson’s antics in reel life? For one he looks more friendly & cute to kids and there is a whole lot more you can do with a cartoon. Bean lives in an apartment that is so much better looking that his flesh counterpart and a whole lot more cozier and spacious. Teddy, ofcourse is with him by his side in every episode. Teddy is the teddy bear that Bean loves immensely. Bean’s sometime girlfriend is there as well as you can see in the image above. And, not pictured but still an essential part of the show, is his prized car.
The new additions are the old haggy looking landlady of the apartment and her one-eyed cat. Both have been problematic for our hero but he gets by in the end. I hear that Rowan himself voiced the character of Bean.
