Other Mr. Bean TV appearances

"This Morning" daytime show

In 1995, Mr. Bean appeared on the ITV daytime show This Morning, with Richard and Judy. In his appearance, in a specially filmed sketch, as he arrives he attempts to find a parking space at the Albert Dock. Failing, he then reverses his Mini into Richard and Judy's car, hurling it into the river. He is then interviewed in the studio to promote his video Unseen Bean, in his first and only TV interview. Later he goes on to cause mayhem in the kitchen.

 "(I Want To Be) Elected" music video

Released during the run-up to the 1992 general election, Mr. Bean stands for Parliament as the single member of "The Bean Party". The sketch makes fun of the ruthless campaigning used by some activists, as Bean forces his way into peoples' homes or buys their votes by offering them money and a television, sticks his poster on a coffin that is being taken to a waiting hearse and after being spotted by a press photographer gives a lollipop to a random child then forcibly takes it back after the photographer departs, and finally replaces the ballot box with the one brought by himself, full of votes for him only. In the background a band called 'Smear Campaign' (with Bruce Dickinson on vocals) plays an Alice Cooper cover "(I want to be) Elected".

 "Picture of You" music video

Mr. Bean features in Boyzone's music video, a song featured in Bean. Members of the band dress as look-alikes of Bean.

 National Lottery

Mr. Bean features in the UK National Lottery in 1997, to promote the film Bean. Bean brings along his creation, which is used to select the exact balls on his lottery ticket, but is refused by host Bob Monkhouse.

 M&M's TV Ad

Mr. Bean is being scoffed at by the M&M's characters for his bowling ability at a ten-pin bowling complex, so he picks one of them up and bowls him, getting a strike.

 Nissan TV Ad

Mr. Bean appears as an endorser of the Nissan Tino in Japan, as seen endorsing the vehicle in its ad.

 Fujifilm TV ad

A series of adverts aired in 1999 as Mr. Bean advertised Fujifilm's new foolproof range. In one advert, Bean appears taking a photo of his teddy bear. At that moment the bear falls off from where it was placed. Another advert showed Bean attempting to get his budgerigar back into its cage with a photo of it.

 Dr. Bean

Mr. Bean appeared on the first episode of a new series of the Dame Edna Treatment on ITV, posing as a doctor to gain access to a spa and relaxation room.

Blue Peter TV series

In 2004, Mr. Bean appeared on the long-running CBBC series Blue Peter in order to advertise the first volume in the new series of Mr. Bean DVDs. He also found time to construct a fireworks safety film. In 2007, he returned before Mr. Bean's Holiday was launched at cinemas. His appearance included showing a clip from the film via his camera.
