But the first to realize that such a show would really run on TV was Howard Davis, who then worked at ITV and was the former head of BBC Comedy. He initially devoted half an hour of ITV’s most expensive time to Mr. Bean. And from the day of the first promotion, Mr. Bean became extremely popular.
The first episode of Mr. Bean aired on January 1, 1990.
The character became known in a few days with his unkempt jacket, thick eyebrows, and untidy hair. Mr. Bean is something out of the ordinary.

“Mr. Bean’s business can make everyone laugh. No education, no language is needed to understand his humor.”
