   Ready, Teddy, Go...

   Continuing where the live-action series left off, animated Mr Bean follows
   our favourite geek's hinjinx and adventures around town, with his beloved
   Teddy in tow. And it's a classy toon, with beautiful, bold character designs
   and an appealing background pallette. Rowan Atkinson's creation has been
   meticulously reworked by the team at Tiger Aspect, Richard Purdum's
   and Varga Studios, so that every nuance of the gangling star is captured
   by the animators. And here, in this animated world, he's been able to
   branch out into ever more outrageous scenarios. Best of all, each episode
   is stuffed with little background details, in-jokes and  incidentals - the kind
   of material that makes this a must-have on DVD.
   Volume Two of "Mr Bean: The Animated Series" features eight

 No Pets                 Roadworks
Ray of Sunshine     • The Sofa
 Birthday Bear         • Treasure
The Mole               Homeless

   Get that pause button ready!

The Hound says...
    "Animated Mr Bean is hugely stylish, beautifully crafted, and really rather
     terrific. It has some delicious character design; throughly modern, yet with
     a classic retro feel. And every pratfall, every double-take, annoying grunt
     and guffaw is pure, unmistakable "Bean". It's also stuffed  with lovely detail, 
     like all those silly shop names in the backgrounds, and references on the
     posters and hoardings. Oh, and it's cruel, too. Mr Bean plays some wicked
     mind games with Teddy. Crueler still is the fact the series has yet to receive
     the plaudits it so clearly deserves..."
