An animated Mr. Bean is heading stateside, thanks to Hulu.

The site has picked up U.S. streaming rights to the first two seasons of Mr. Bean: The Animated Series, the series’ production company Endemol Shine announced Monday. In the show, Rowan Atkinson voices the character he’s played for more than a decade in various live-action projects.

Consider it a gift not just for American fans of Mr. Bean, but for Mr. Bean himself. The bumbling and beloved character who first hit British TV in 1990 celebrates his 25th anniversary this year.
