It all began 25 years ago when Mr Bean was introduced to the United Kingdom. Cracking up the audience with his comic timing and hilarious expressions, he has kept generations of TV viewers glued to their screens.

Earlier this month, actor Rowan Atkinson, who made the character immortal, rode around the streets of London in his famous lime green Mini to mark 25 years of being Bean.

After the worldwide success of the original British series, an animated version was released. The Bean franchise churned out movies and books as well. The Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific’s licensing division — Cartoon Network Enterprises — was tasked with driving licensing activity for Mr Bean in Southeast Asian markets, including India. And as it turned out, Mr Bean - the animated series was popular not only with the kids.

With his backyard bloopers and beach pranks, Mr Bean has created a distinguished reputation. He is the man in the grey suit and the red tie who has tickled a thousand funny bones and stolen a million hearts.
