Introduction (or: "Oh, no..." in a croaky, heavy British accent)
Although the character of Bean could be described as quite brilliant, he is clumsy and arrogant, sometimes obnoxious and self-satisfied. When he tries to solve a logistic problem, like he does in most of the episodes, he would often chose the most funny, wasteful, Macgyver-wannabe way of doing it. Whatever he does to solve a problem, Mr. Bean always finds a way that no normal person would even contemplate. He lives alone, only caring for a small teddy bear that he carries around with him everywhere. Bean is also very cheap, which causes him to bring himself unto many weird situations. There is a whole scene about him trying to fool the parking lot register, or trying to sneak into a place without paying.
