First Aired: Nov. 15, 1995 on ITV1

Later he loses his train ticket and has to think of other ways to get out.
Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (continuity error): The man with the ponytail picks up the same magazine at the barbershop twice.
- Because Mr. Bean contains little to no dialogue, episodes that air on Francophone networks are aired in English with French subtitles. That is not the case with this episode, as it was actually *dubbed* in French. There are other differences: 1) the "Hit the Headmaster" sequence is completely cut out; 2) different background music is used at the pet show; 3) none of the stock footage after the train to Moscow closes its doors is used with the ending credits simply playing over a black screen, and the French voice actors are actually credited as well.
- This episode was actually made in 1995, but was released as a video-exclusive episode. It did not receive a television showing in the UK until 2006.
- Even though the show was a PBS staple for many years, American Public Television did not make this episode available to PBS until March 2003. The PBS broadcasting license for the show expired one year later.
