The transfer is presented at the Full Frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1 (4:3). The transfer is, of course, not 16x9 enhanced.
The transfer is passably sharp and clear, though a few shots here and there are out of focus. A few minor video source glitches mar the transfer slightly, but none of these are particularly noteworthy. Shadow detail is acceptable, and there is little low level noise present.
The colours were acceptably rendered. The first skit (Dentist) showed some cross colouration on Mr. Bean's pyjamas, but this was minor. Additionally, there was some minor colour bleeding at times during the transfer.
No MPEG artefacts were seen. Some moderate aliasing was present at times, none of which was particularly noteworthy.
The audio level seemed a little high, and I reduced it by 10dB to listen to this disc, which was a much more reasonable level than the default level.
There is little dialogue, but what there is is readily understandable.
There are no audio sync problems with this disc.
The score is unremarkable.
The surround channels were not used.
The .1 channel was not used.
There is no exact equivalent of this DVD in Region 1. Region 1 have a solitary DVD available with 11 Mr Bean skits included.
The video quality is acceptable.
The audio quality is acceptable.
The extras are basically non-existent.
