Other sketches[edit]

Unaired sketches[edit]

# Title Directed by Written by Original airdate
1"The Library"François ReczulskiOlivier Jean-Marie5 April 1990 (1990-04-05)

An unaired sketch that appears only on video.

Mr. Bean visits a rare book library, where he reads a rare tome that must be handled with gloves. Soon after he uses a pencil and a crayon to copy a page of the book by shading on a piece of tracing paper, he sneezes, and the tracing paper slips away. He does not notice this, and continues to go about shading, but directly onto the book instead of the tracing paper. When he finally realises this, he attempts to remove the crayon marks – first by erasing, and then by using correction fluid (which only adds to the problem when it spreads to the opposite page after Bean shuts the book to a passing librarian), eventually resorting to tearing out the pages he has ruined.

Bean then proceeds to use a box-cutter knife to neaten up the stubs of the pages he has torn out, but does not realize that while doing so, he also cuts out other pages. Bean's final solution is to swap his book with that of someone else at his table; he almost succeeds, but when he returns to retrieve his Dennis the Menace and Gnasher bookmark from his original book, he is subsequently caught red-handed.

Note: A similar scene was later included in the film adaptation Bean, when after sneezing on a priceless portrait, Whistler's Mother, his attempts to clean it escalate into destroying the painting. However, he got away with it in the movie by replacing the portrait with a poster of itself altered to make it resemble a real painting.

Guest stars: Paul Brooke and Rex Doyle
2"The Bus Stop"Olivier Jean-MarieThomas Szabo15 May 1991 (1991-05-15)

Mr. Bean waits at a bus stop behind a man; when the bus arrives, the man gets on, but the driver turns Bean away. Determined to be the first in line for the next bus, Bean tries to cut ahead of a woman (Matilda Ziegler) with a baby carriage (who gets in line ahead of Bean when he steps away for a moment), and a blind man (Robin Driscoll). Soon after Bean manages to get to the front, several people join the end of the line, and the bus arrives.

But the bus does not stop in front of Bean, it drives on for another few yards – just far enough so that the end of the line logically becomes the front of the line, also sarcastically when the first bus arrives, the door is in front, but when the second bus arrives, the door is in the back; everyone but Bean is allowed on the bus, and Bean, now at the end of the line, is left behind again. Judging by the location and setting, this adventure appears to have originally been part of "Mr. Bean Rides Again", in which Mr. Bean does attempt to board a bus, but perhaps cut for time.

25th Anniversary[edit]

# Title Directed by Written by Original airdate
1"Mr. Bean's Red Nose Day"[5]UnknownUnknown15 March 1991 (1991-03-15)

Bean is in a police station because his car has been broken into. He wears a red nose and has other red nose items, including a mug and a codpiece. He reveals to the policewoman (Matilda Ziegler), through the use of written signs, that he is doing a sponsored silence, sponsored tea drinking, sponsored codpiece wearing, and sponsored Madonna impression – presumably to raise money for Red Nose Day charities. When the policewoman is out of the room, Bean answers the phone but the caller hangs up since Bean hardly even speaks.

Bean then dons a blonde wig and, upon the policewoman's return, reveals his sponsored Madonna impression. The policewoman proceeds to interview Bean about the robbery, which he answers in mime. The policewoman appears to enjoy herself as if playing a game of charades. After the interview, the policewoman asks until when Bean must stay silent. He has only two minutes remaining. She offers to sponsor him twenty pounds if he makes it through. The generous offer prompts him to respond with an excited, "Oh, thank you!" – breaking his silence.
2"Blind Date"UnknownUnknown12 March 1993 (1993-03-12)
Bean is a contestant on Blind Date, hosted by Cilla Black, where he does his best to upstage his fellow suitors Rob (Paul Opacic) and Roddy (Alan Cumming) and cheat his way through the show in order to get a date with the beautiful Tracy (Barbara Durkin). He succeeds and in a sketch broadcast later in the telethon we see their date which plays out in true Bean style which, while enjoyable for him, proves less enjoyable for Tracy and fatal for some members of the hotel staff.
3"Torvill & Bean"UnknownUnknown17 March 1995 (1995-03-17)
The title is a play on the names of Torvill and Dean famous British ice-skaters. Mr. Bean goes on a date with a woman to an ice skating show, where he wreaks his usual havoc when he attends a performance of "Show on Ice". He ends up posing as Christopher Dean when he accidentally knocks him out cold in his dressing room, leaving Mr. Bean to take his place alongside Torvill on the skating rink. After a disastrous performance, Christopher goes on stage and punches Mr. Bean, knocking him out. This sketch contains no laugh track, since it was not shown to a live audience.
4"Mr Bean's Wedding"[6]UnknownUnknown16 March 2007 (2007-03-16)

Bean causes chaos at a wedding he is attending. First, at the beginning of the ceremony, he rushes down the aisle where the bride and her father are walking and in the process knocks the father down. Then, when the father attempts to take his seat, he finds that Bean is sitting in his spot and forces him to move along. As the priest starts the ceremony, Bean becomes bored, and also notices that all the men have flowers on their tuxedos. Wanting one, Bean attempts to pick a flower off of one of the decorations, but ends up disrupting the ceremony when the whole decoration falls onto the ground. Despite this, he successfully gets the flower and puts it on his shirt. When the priest gets to the part where there are any objections to the marriage, Bean sneezes loudly and steals the tissue off of the bride's mother to blow his nose. The ceremony continues with Bean shushing a man and woman coughing, and then the whole ceremony abruptly stops when Beans gift wrapped alarm clock starts ringing continuously. Bean attempts to silence it by hiding it under his jacket, but when this doesn't work, he frantically opens the box, accidentally hitting the mother with this hand and the father with the lid in the process, and finally shuts it off. By this point, everyone is becoming annoyed of Bean and his behaviour, especially the father.

The ceremony resumes with a choir boy singing, but Bean becomes so bored by this he falls asleep and starts snoring on the father's shoulder, but he suddenly wakes up when the song ends. When it is time for the bride and groom to exchange vows, Bean interrupts by repeating the first line that the groom was supposed to say. He then mocks the groom while he is repeating the rest of his vows. When it is the bride's turn to say her vows, Bean distracts the cameraman by acting ridiculously to the lens. The priest then finally declares the two husband & wife, and when the two kiss Bean humorously covers his eyes.

At the ceremony's conclusion, the priest starts a prayer, and when Bean discovers he doesn't have a kneeling mat to pray on, he steals the father's mat, which causes his head to hit the floor hard. When the newly married couple walk down the aisle, the bride's father finally blows his top at Bean and attempts to attack him. As Bean backs away in fear, he accidentally steps on the back of the bride's wedding dress, causing it to rip and fall off. Furious, the groom attempts to punch Bean, but he manages to evade every swing, and the groom ends up hitting the wedding sponsor, the priest, and finally his new wife. As the horrified groom checks on her, Bean makes a run for the exit, but quickly returns to give the alarm clock to the bride. He gives her a thumbs up before running out the church. The sketch also starred Alex MacQueen, Michelle Ryan, Matthew Macfadyen and David Haig.
5"Mr. Bean: Funeral"UnknownUnknown13 March 2015 (2015-03-13)

Mr. Bean returned in a sketch for Comic Relief to celebrate his 25th anniversary. In the sketch, older Bean attends a funeral and does his best to fit in. When a man next to Bean blows his nose, Bean does the same thing, but blows loud. He also cries when people start to cry. When Bean see a man bowing to the coffin, kisses the wife and shaking the husband's hand, Bean does the same thing, but he kisses the wife passionately and hugs the husband.

A man pats the coffin, so Bean gently pats the coffin before patting the coffin again and pretends that the deceased is alive, before explaining that it was a joke. Before going to his seat, Bean takes a selfie next to the coffin.

When he sees a girl putting a flower on the coffin and hugging the coffin, Bean decides to do it, but since he doesn't have a flower, he puts a bag of boiled sweets on the coffin, but when hugging it, he accidentally knocks it down but manages to fix it a little (with some help), but puts the word "love" to "vole". When he sees the wife cry, he goes to kiss her before being pulled away by the man.

When the priest says that the funeral is for a man named David, Bean realizes that he is at the wrong one and quickly drives to the chapel next door. After arriving there, he realizes that he left his boiled sweets at the other funeral and quickly crawls back to retrieve them. This sketch guest starred Ben Miller and Rebecca Front.
