    Yes the Queen skit has to be on there. Maybe it is under a different name.

    "Good night Mr. Bean"?

    I distinctly remember it being called "Premiere".

    doesn't seem complete without it.

    Too bad they couldn't have included with Rowan Atkinson live. That was a great stage show, but I'm happy with this release [​IMG].

    The 'Queen' skit and 'Hair by Mr. Bean of London' are both on the German R2 set, and as it looks exactly the same as the US R1 set, they will in all probability be on there, just under a different skit name.

    Have no fear.

    This is taken from my A&E press release:
    -A 40 min documentary "The Story of Mr. Bean"
    -Never-before-seen-on-TV skits "The Bus Stop" and "The Library
    -Comic relief sketches "Blind Date" and "Torvill & Bean"
    -Mr. Bean Animated Series trailer
    -An Atkinson biography and filmography

    A&E will also be releasing the animated series, but no date has been set.

    I so wish for "Curse of the Fatal Death" as well. I've seen this thanks to Anglicon (convention of Anglophiles).

    I preordered this yesterday. I haven't seen all of the episodes but the ones that I've seen are absolutely hilarious.

    Here is what another person wrote at DVDTalk :

    I am so upset right now I can't even tell you. I just got Mr Bean The Whole Bean box set the other day (gotta love pre-ordering from deepdiscountdvd) and watched the first dvd last night. Very enjoyable.
    Just started the second dvd tonight and too my horror noticed a cut during Merry Christmas Mr Bean. I'm a rapid Mr Bean fan from way back. I have all the shows on video (taped off PBS years ago) and also have every ep on vcd. I even have some Mr Bean collectibles like his car from Corgi and 2 editions of his diary. So when I heard it was finally coming on dvd in the USA I was glad I held off on buying the foriegn edition dvds.
    As I was watching the Christmas episode (my fave) I was horror struck to notice that the scene where Mr Bean actually "buys" the turkey was not there. Remember, he wins (by cheating with a scale) the turkey from a vendor offering a contest, guess the wieght of the turkey and win it. This scene was nowhere to be found.

    Ughhh. I'm so upset that my most wanted dvds (no exaggeration) has cuts. I have no idea if the scene was cut out of the American video versions that have been around for years.

    Does anyone know what's up with this. I actually couldn't concentrate watching the rest of the show and had to stop and come here and post, which I never do.

    A Sad Bean Fan

    I would just like to CONFIRM that the cut "weight gussing of the turkey" scene ISN'T on the DVD.

    Well, I just fired off an e-mail to A&E dept.
    Hopefully I'll get a timely reply

    I wrote an email to the studio (A&E Home Video) but that's not going to change what's already on the DVD. (or actually what's NOT on it)

    ANOTHER CUT EPISODE!!!!!

    I just noticed another cut. It's in the episode "Do It Yourself Mr Bean" (the New Years eve one), where he goes to buy a recliner at a New Years day sale. The whole bit in the store where he finds the recliner he wants, but see's some old couple interested in it, and Mr Bean tampers with the recliners mechanism causing it to squish the old lady. All of that is missing. It goes from where he enters the store, then to already having the recliner ontop of his car.

    OK folks, I'm seriously determined to buy this set, but all of these cuts are making me wonder if it's worth the money? Maby I should just stick with the Best of Bean compilation DVD, because it sounds like they are using the clips from this disc instead of the complete episodes.

    So, where can we complain to A&E, so they can exchange our soon to be bought discs with COMPLETE episodes of the series?
