Mr. Bean starts with an original way to pay a busker. Shopping in the mall requires testing the goods. Instead of telling another customer their credit-cards got mixed up, he finds a far more embarrassing way to 'set it straight'. Celebrating his way includes a restaurant dinner. A budget-driven menu choice proves disastrous, not admitting so far worse. Finally he's part of a movie theatre line-up preparing to look their very best for a royal attending a premiere- impossible with him around. Written by KGF Vissers

Alternate Versions

For the original VHS releases, the audio tracks for the first three episodes were remixed to accommodate the NICAM stereo upgrade from episode four onward. There are additional, albeit subtle sounds such as environmental soundscapes added to outdoor scenes. These remixed audio tracks are available on some of the earlier PAL DVD sets, with the 20th anniversary edition from Universal reverting back to the originally broadcast audio tracks. See more »

Better than the first episode!
13 September 2007 | by jonjonatSee all my reviews

This is a classic episode that makes Mr Bean as funny as hell starting with a little dancing, a shopping spree, toilet accident, restaurant melodrama and a little bow down to the queen of England. The best bits were when he had to eat some raw steak in the restaurant and tries to do his best to hide in very odd places especially down a violinist's pance! 4/4 GAGGLE! And when he did the shopping spree and accidentally got man's card by mistake and is hauled all the way to the toilet room and is the toilet paper dude! I hate to say the rude bit with greeting the queen and his finger got stuck down his pance known to most people a penas! YUCK! Mr bean give me a hug!
