Know about Mr. Bean:
Mr. Bean based on a personality originally developed by Rowan Atkinson. While he was studying for his master’s degree in electrical engineering at Oxford University, the series centers on Mr. Bean characterized by Atkinson as “a child in a grown man’s body”. He solves different problems presented by everyday tasks and sometimes causes a break in the process. The series has been altered by physical comedy actors. During its original five-year run, Mr. Bean met with overall acclaim and attracted large television audiences. The series got 18.74 million viewers for the episode “The trouble with Mr. Bean”. Besides the praise of the show, one more reason for the show’s appeal in hundreds of territories worldwide is that the incontrovertible fact that the show uses little or no intelligible dialogue, making it very accessible to people that know little or no English.
How Mr.Bean had been Started:
In 1987, one among Bean’s earliest appearances occurred at the comedy festival in Canada. When programmer and coordinators were scheduling him into the festival program, Rowan Atkinson insisted that he perform on the French-speaking bill rather than the English-speaking program. Having no French dialogue in his act at all, programmer, coordinators could not understand why Atkinson wanted to perform on the French bill instead. As it dressed, Atkinson’s act at the festival was a test platform for his character and he wanted to ascertain how his character’s physical comedy would fare on an international stage with a non-English speaking audience.
The character’s name wasn’t decided until after the first episode had been produced; variety of other vegetable-influenced names such as “Mr. Cauliflower” was explored. Artistically, Mr. Bean is also similar to early silent films, relying purely upon physical humor with Mr. Bean speaking very little dialogue (although like other live-action sitcoms during this era, it featured a comedy track). This has allowed the series to be sold worldwide beyond any significant changes to dialogue.
