    Will the Mr. Bean show ever be released on DVD? I'm hoping for an eventual 'black-adder' type release, with every episode. I think his show is/was hilarious. The film, Bean is pretty funny also. So, any word on it?

    Also wouldn't mind all those live standup acts of Rowan Atkinson to be available on DVD.

    Mr Bean has returned to TV in cartoon form here. I'm a little mixed on my opinions of Bean, some moments were just great. The new cartoon version doesn't quite meet expectations.

    With the Mr. Bean right lost in the shuffle when Polygram went under, and was bought by MGM, it may be forever for this to be released.

    Bean (the movie) and Best Bits of Bean was released on the Polygram label before they went under.

    If you have a multi-region player, the complete run of "Mr. Bean" is available in box set in Germany, France and Spain. I think there are some extras in there too.

    If you like Mr Bean, you should look for the Black Adder series. Its much funnier then Mr Bean in my opinion, and the whole series is on DVD. (I just picked it up through columbia house).

    I think how funny you find depends more on your sense of humor than anything else. If you like slapstickk non-verbaal comedy then Mr Bean is hilarious. If you are more into verbal wordplay then you might like Blackadder more. I find both equally funny, depending on my mood.

    Rowan Atkinson/Bean/Black Adder fans shouldn't overlook The Tall Guy which was recently released on DVD. Funny, funny stuff. Rowan Atkinson plays a nasty version of himself in a small role, and the film was written by Richard Curtis.
