coverUnusual? Definitely. If you're a fan of Rowan Atkinson's Mr. Bean live-action comedies, there's a good chance you and your family will enjoy the animated version of Mr. Bean and his silly antics. 

 

In Mr. Bean: The Animated Series Vol. 1 & 2, Mr. Bean transfers seamlessly to animation--his hilarious look, expressions, and foibles are captured well by animators. In fact, his exploits and misadventures are sometimes a little more fantastical because of the nature of the medium, but for the most part, the stories possess the same silliness as the original series. Teddy, Bean's stuffed teddy bear friend, appears in many of this 2-DVD set's 18 episodes, as well as other series regulars like his landlady Mrs. Wicket and his girlfriend, Irma. This set includes It's Not Easy Being Bean and Bean There, Done That.

 

Fortunately, Rowan Atkinson does the voiceovers--Bean's trademark grunts, although often unintelligible in the strict sense of the word, are always full of expression. The episodes include Bean's adventures with spring cleaning, a bout of homelessness after a misunderstanding with his landlady, and a birthday party for Teddy. Kid testers and their parents alike thoroughly enjoyed the collection--it's goofy fun! Mr. Bean fans who want to share the fun with their children will find the animated series makes the silly humor of Bean likable and accessible to a younger crowd.
