One of the most iconic shows of the 1990s, along with "ALF", "Friends" and "Beverly Hills, 90210", is the hilarious British sitcom Mr. Bean. This character is so weird that you can't stop watching him getting in incredible situations and coming out of them in the most comic manner. But did you know that Mr. Bean's character was invented by the actor himself, Rowan Atkinson?
