This is the first episode to feature Bean's cuddly toy; Teddy. The version used in this episode had a smaller head in comparison to the one used in later episodes. This is the first time we see Bean's unique technique of immobilising his car by removing the steering wheel (he also used this method in Mr. Bean in Room 426). The Reliant Regal appears parked in a boxed parking space outside the dentist's office. Bean's Mini is seen driving past and off screen. We hear Bean brake, shift into reverse and then reappear directly in front of the Reliant. He slowly pushes it out of its space and onto a single yellow line where it is promptly booked by a passing traffic warden (Caroline Quentin). The traffic warden is also seen in Mr. Bean, The Animated Series.
Bean's odd taste in duvet covers is alluded to in this episode. In this episode the cover depicts The A-Team. Later episodes would feature different designs.
