The Library is a scene which never appeared on episodes.


The first scene starts with Mr. Bean entering a rare book library, where he reads a rare tome that must be handled with gloves. Soon after he uses a pencil and a crayon to copy a page of the book by shading on a piece of tracing paper, he sneezes, and the tracing paper slips away. He does not notice this, continuing to use a crayon for shading, but on the book instead of the tracing paper. When he finally notices this, he attempts to remove the crayon marks – first by erasing, and then by using the correction fluid, but eventually ends up tearing out the pages he has defiled. To neaten up the stubs of the pages he has torn out, he uses a box-cutter knife, but does not realise that while doing so, he cuts other pages. His final solution is to swap his book with that of someone else at his table; this plan is working (Bean leaves, and the librarian discovers that the book the other visitor has is damaged), but then Bean returns to retrieve his Dennis the Menace and Gnasher bookmark from his original book and is subsequently caught red-handed.


  • This sketch was included on the 1991 VHS The Amazing Adventures Of Mr. Bean.
  • Mr Bean would be prosecuted for damaging the book.
