The popular English animated cartoon series, Mr. Bean is ready to enter the world of metaverse with its first-ever NFT collection. On May 11, 2022, the official Mr. Bean’s Twitter account dropped an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming collaboration project with the famous content producer Banijay and FOMO Lab, a popular platform that leads brands to the NFT and Metaverse space.
Everyone’s favorite childhood personality, Mr. Bean is a bachelor who finds unconventional ways to complete everyday tasks and often gets in trouble with his landlady, Mrs. Wicket. Although the series is quite old, it was revived back in 2015 and ended its last episode in 2019. Since then, the cartoon series hasn’t been much active until now when it dropped the NFT teasers.
Mr. Bean whom once we saw on our TV screens will now be seen in the virtual world of Web3. Following the popularity of NFTs and the Web3 revolution, Mr. Bean will bring something new and innovative to the industry by releasing exclusive NFTs never seen before.

The NFTs will also include side characters from the cartoon series such as Mrs. Wicket, Scrapper the cat, and of course, his beloved Teddy. In the sneak peek released, Mr. Bean showed a few pictures of the NFT collection that created a buzz around the NFT community and Mr. Bean fans of what more the collection will hold.
