Good Morning,
I'd like to report a problem with the Mr. Bean The Animated Series page. The listing of the episodes in each season is completly wrong I.e: the first season doesn't have 52 episodes (it has only 18, that can be verified if you go purchase the home video release). I think one of the season list episodes episodes that already have been listed, that being said there repeated episodes listed. There is a new season coming in 2019. I'm asking if you if can list the episodes correctly following the Wikipedia page (I'm aware that you don't consider Wikipedia when something has to be changed, but when it comes to listing episodes, it is in the majority of times quite accurate).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_M ... )_episodes
hope you can consider the change valid
Best Regards
Adriano Abreu

There episodes listed in season one that should be listed in season 3 or 4. They should be deleted of season 1

I believe this was raised in viewtopic.php?t=37506&f=46 which is archived, but nothing was done about it.

Its clear this series has duplicate episodes listed as follows:

DUPLICATES:
S01E03 & S03E05 = No Parking
S01E04 & S03E06 = Bean's Bounty
S01E05 & S03E07 = Artful Bean
S01E06 & S03E08 = The Fly

S01E09 & S03E17 = No Pets
S01E10 & S03E18 = Ray of Sunshine

S01E13 & S03E13 = Camping
S01E14 & S03E14 = Chocks Away

S01E15 & S02E03 = Royal Bean
S01E16 & S02E04 = Young Bean
S01E17 & S02E05 = In the Pink
S01E18 & S02E06 = Dinner for Two
S01E19 & S02E07 = The Ball
S01E20 & S02E08 = Toothache
S01E21 & S02E09 = Haircut
S01E22 & S02E10 = Neighbourly Bean

S01E29 & S02E01 = Goldfish
S01E30 & S02E02 = Inventor
S01E31 & S02E15 = Hot Date
S01E32 & S02E16 = Wanted
S01E33 & S02E13 = Art Thief
S01E34 & S02E14 = Scaredy Bean
S01E35 & S02E11 = Car Trouble
S01E36 & S02E12 = Restaurant

S01E37 & S03E01 = Gadget Kid
S01E38 & S03E02 = The Visitor
S01E39 & S03E03 = Big TV
S01E40 & S03E04 = Keyboard Capers
S01E41 & S03E19 = Bean in Love
S01E42 & S03E20 = Double Trouble
S01E43 & S03E09 = A Royal Makeover
S01E44 & S03E10 = SuperMarrow

S01E51 & S03E16 = A Grand Invitation
S01E52 & S03E11 = A Running Battle

Firstly, verification is required to determine if "Mr. Bean The Animated Series" is a 2 or 4 AIRED Season series.

If its a 2 Season series, then Season 2 & 3 needs to be REMOVED and Season 4 becomes Season 2
OR
If its a 4 Season series, then Season 1 needs to have the duplicates REMOVED.

Once done, then the episode order/airdates need to be validated (somehow, since I couldn't find an 'official' source), or at LEAST base it on some other points of reference until an official source can be found.

Its clear the current Seasons 1-2-3 are wrong with mixed with cross season duplicates, so if there is no "official source" found yet, then the listings need to be changed to align with some sense of logic but WITHOUT the duplicates! At least until a valid source can be found later.

Its either that or the series needs to be NUKED all together until an official source is found to stop supporting/spreading confusion from this site.

Thanks

I partly agree, but also agree with the forum rules. Wikipedia is a user contributed source. Its not an official release date/episode listing source since wikipedia do not broadcast TV series. I don't think the forum rules allow the use of such sources, so if not then THIS SERIES NEEDS TO BE NUKED as its a source of total BS duplicate episodes, until an officially accepted source is found/validated ;P

Do you have the makers/broadcasters info on Season 5 (link, etc.)?

I would also question if there was even an official source sighted/referenced in creating the current listing (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/mr-bean- ... ted-series).

I can't even find an 'unofficial' source for the current thetvdb entries with its duplicate episodes, let alone an official one (it may have been a cross merge/timing reference issue when the broadcaster/makers decided to re-define its episodes/seasons, but I couldn't find any reference)

With imdb, something is better than nothing but if the rules prevent modification due to no "official" source sighted, then technically the listing needs to be nuked since no official source was referenced in creating it, and even if there was one, its clearly changed since with the Seasons 1 dupes and validated with 4 Seasons, if Season 5 will be coming out soon....

Just a gentle prod for some news on this one
The broadcaster and production company are a good point of reference:

Production company - showing 52 episodes in season 1 and 2, 26 episodes in season 3 (sadly no episode guide though)
https://www.tigeraspect.co.uk/series/an ... ed-series/
https://www.tigeraspect.co.uk/series/an ... -series-2/
https://www.tigeraspect.co.uk/series/an ... -series-3/

Broadcaster (Sky) - showing 47 episodes in season 1, 52 in season 2 and 13 in 3
https://www.sky.com/watch/title/series/ ... /episode-1

Broadcaster (ITV) - showing 13 episodes in season 3, 52 in season 2 and only 37 in season 1
https://www.itv.com/hub/mr-bean-animated-series/2a2936
If I look at archive.org it does show they listed 52 episodes in season 1:
https://web.archive.org/web/20160604083 ... ies/2a2936
https://web.archive.org/web/20161031223 ... ies/2a2936

Radio Times - showing 52 episodes in season 1 and 2, 13 in 3
https://www.radiotimes.com/tv-programme ... ode-guide/

TVGuide - showing 52 episodes in season 1 (no info on other seasons)
https://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/mr-bean ... es/466248/

I'd say on balance the correct listing should be 52 episodes in season 1, 52 episodes in season 2 and 13 (presumably to increase to 26) in season 3 comprising of
Season 1 In the Wild to Running Battle
Season 2 Home Movie to Bean Shopping
Season 3 Game Over to Running on Empty
