Mr Bean celebrates the show’s 25th anniversary

The character, played by Rowan Atkinson, also celebrated the milestone occasion with presents and a cake
It’s hard to believe that anybody could forget the lovable Mr Bean.

But those who had were treated to an amusing reminder when the character stormed London in honour of the show’s 25th anniversary on Friday.

Rowan Atkinson, who played the iconic character on the television series from 1990 to 1995, arrived outside Buckingham Palace on top of his legendary yellow mini.
He then made his way to a mountain of colourful presents that were waiting for him and posed with a huge cake in the shape of the number ’25’.

Teddy, Bean’s BFF, was also there to have his picture taken. Of course.

Long-time fans were quick to notice that Rowan was actually paying tribute to the popular Do-It-Yourself episode that aired in 1994.
The episode saw Mr Bean faced with the task of driving his car after he’d loaded it up with goodies from the January sales.

In the end he came up with the genius idea of steering his vehicle while sat on an armchair on the roof.

The memorable scenes came flooding back to onlookers who whipped out their cameras and nabbed themselves evidence of the priceless sight.
Speaking outside Buckingham Palace, Bean said: “Well it’s fantastic. I mean I’m known in Brighton and Birmingham, literally all over the world I’m known which is fantastic.

“It’s sweet, it’s flattering, but it hasn’t gone to my head.”

Asked how else he’ll be celebrating the milestone, he added: “Well I’m just going to have a small birthday party. It’s just me and my friend Teddy.”
