Mr Bean – The Animated Series – 2002
Based on the popular live action hit comedy of the same name, this animated version ran for 52 episodes over 3 years. Initially broadcast in aprimetime Saturday Evening slot by ITV that would feature 2 back to back epoisodes. The third series was broadcast daily run as twenty single episodes by ITV’s children’s channel – CITV. Rowan Atkinson again provided the voice such as it was, as the series again featured little actual dialogue, with most being either little sound bites or mumbling. All of the animated Bean actions are taken from Atkinson himself.
Characters from the original live action series included Mr. Bean, Irma Gobb, Teddy, and the mysterious driver of the Reliant Supervan, with the addition of Mrs. Wicket, Bean’s landlady, and her evil cat Scrapper.
Again mirroring the original series each episode had a different story quite often involvong run ins with his landlady and her cat. Irma Gobb appears and Mr Bean quite often finds himself in ascrape with a couple of unnamed burglars.
