Mr. Bean celebrates 25 years


It has been 25 years since Rowan Atkinson first introduced the world to the affable Mr. Bean and he marked the show’s milestone anniversary with a celebration at Buckingham Palace, London.

The 60-year-old actor-comedian rode up to the London landmark in character, atop his famous 1976 British Leyland Mini 1000, reported Entertainment Weekly.

The arrival recreated a memorable scene from the show, in which Mr Bean packs his vehicle so full of shopping purchases that he needs to find an alternative way to drive it.

The car had a #MrBean25 hashtag commemorating the show, which ran from 1990 to 1995 and inspired a spin-off animated series and two feature films. There was also a cake for the occasion, and presents, and Mr. Bean’s best friend, Teddy, came along for the ride.
