Trivia

It was later revealed in the show about the connection to the popular video game. The events of the show take place about twenty years after the time frame of the video game. Fred Edison is the son of the character Weird Ed. It is believed he was named Fred after the character of Dr. Fred. Like his grandfather, Fred Edison is also a doctor, although it is unsure what his doctorate is in. It is believed by now the characters in the game are presumably deceased and have willed the mansion and its scientific equipment to Fred Edison See more »

Hilarious.
21 May 1999 | by (Parts Unknown) – See all my reviews

Simply put, a cult series that was never given a chance. Loosely picking up where the wildly popular cult games "Maniac Mansion" and "Day of the Tentacle" left off, the series takes place about 20 years after the events of those games. We find Fred Edison II inheriting a house from his father, Ed (the character in the games). Unfortunately for Fred, a piece of Meteor with a mind of its own is living in the basement, which accidentally mutates his brother into a fly and his toddler into a giant. From there the series follows the family's attempts at re-entering normal society, and the trials of real life that come with it. Overall the show good, but not living up to the legacy left behind by the video games was its ultimate downfall.
