For this Film Clip Friday we have a lesser-known clip of Mr. Bean driving his classic 1976 Mini 1000. In this clip from Episode 3 titled The Curse of Mr. Bean, he tries to sneak his Mini out of a parking garage without paying the £16.00 fee. Bean does some excellent driving both forward and backward. At the end he has a run-in with a Reliant Regal Supervan III, one of several in a long-running feud.
This episode originally aired on January 1, 1991.
Did you know the famous Citron Green Mini with the matte black bonnet was actually Mr. Bean’s second Mini? In Episode 1, he drives an orange 1969 Mini. You can see it in this short bonus clip. Note his run-in with the same light blue Reliant.
