    Rowan Atkinson's hilarious Mr. Bean comes to Region 1 DVD courtesy of A&E Home Video. The 3 disc boxed set will be released April 29th and is already available for preorder from most online stores. No specs have been announced yet.

    VERY cool. You'll be able to buy it in the stores though right? Not a special order thing, huh?

    I already got a 3 disc 10th Anniversary boxset from Australia last Fall, I suppose it'll be a similar release, not much more extras.

    I have the German R2 3-disc "Mr. Bean Jubilaeums (Jubilee) 10th Anniversary". It's an OK set. There is quite a lot of overlapping in the episodes for some reason. There is also a nice 30 minute or so Rowan Atkinson retrospective on there. Worth picking up, I think.

    From epguides.com & tvtome.com:
    Mr. Bean Episode Guide
    Mr. Bean (animated) Episode Guide

    I didn't even know the animated series existed until I just looked up "Mr. Bean" on epguides.com!

    There is also a clip show of the live action episodes that I saw on PBS a few years ago, but I don't remember what it was called. But I don't think that clip show is listed on epguides or tvtome.

    The Animated Mr.Bean is coming to German DVD soon (The first 9 episodes). However, I wouldn't bother getting this disc as the animated show really was dire!

    Hot Damn, this just made my day [​IMG]. Now I don't have to convert the WLIW 21 episodes I taped oh so long ago to home made DVD [​IMG]..

    All the good stuff seems to be coming out a few months down the line, heh. Too long a wait [​IMG]..

    Now, here's soemthing. When can we 'yanks' see the animated Bean? I want to judge it for myself [​IMG].

    Great!

    I haven't seen Mr. Bean since the British Comedy hour on the Georgia PBS station.

    Cool. I will pick up this release sometime in the future. I only saw several episodes of Mr. Bean but the episodes were very funny.

    I hope it includes the episode in the barbershop that was only released on video.

    I am also excited for this set. There is a description on the A&E site:

    With nary a wit of sense and scarcely a word spoken, Mr. Bean bumbles through life as if he was born yesterday, managing to turn everyday situations into spectacular screw-ups with stunning regularity. Utterly oblivious to his prodigious shortcomings, he negotiates a series of self-inflicted misadventures that never--ever--leave him any the wiser.

    Starring the incomparable Rowan Atkinson (Johnny English, Blackadder) MR. BEAN has won a veritable plethora of international awards and built a cult following around the globe that is, quite frankly, a tad disturbing. This VHS set includes all 14 episodes, the entire Bean ouvre, on 3 DVDs:
    • Mr. Bean
    • The Return of Mr. Bean
    • The Curse of Mr. Bean
    • Mr. Bean Goes to Town
    • The Trouble with Mr. Bean
    • Mr. Bean Rides Again
    • Merry Christmas, Mr. Bean
    • Mr. Bean in Room 426
    • Mind the Baby Mr. Bean
    • Do it Yourself Mr. Bean
    • Back to School Mr. Bean
    • Tee Off, Mr. Bean
    • Good Night Mr. Bean
    • Hair by Mr. Bean of London

    DVD extras include the never-before-seen documentary The Story of Bean and the never-broadcast sketches "Bus Stop" and "The Library," as well as the trailer for the animated series and much more.

    DVD Bonus Features:

    The Story of Bean - A 40 minute documentary
    Never-before-seen Sketches: Bus Stop and Library
    Comic Relief Skits: Blind Date and Torvill and Bean
    Mr. Bean: The Animated Series trailer
    Photo Gallery
    Rowan Atkinson Biography and Filmography
    Interactive Menus
    Scene Selection

    Where's "Mr. Bean Goes To The Premiere"?
    The episode where he has to shine his shoes before the queen(?) shakes his hands.
