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 »

Funny Show
6 July 2005 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

Man, you have to go through a lot if you've never posted comments here before. Anyway, Maniac Mansion was a charming, original and funny show that aired on the Family Channel in the early 1990's. I haven't watched it since then, so some of the details are lost on me, but it was mainly about a family headed by a kooky inventor/scientist (Joe Flaherty) who had a lab in the basement of his home (which looked a lot like Wright's Ennis-Brown house). One day, his son was accidentally transformed into a full-grown man with the mind of a toddler, but the family carries on like it's "just one of those things." And that's just the beginning. Uncle Harry has been transformed into a fly (only his head stayed the same), there's an errant meteor on the property, and almost every episode contains a dreamy fantasy sequence. The acting is over the top--basically, it's wacky, wacky fun. If this series were on DVD, I wouldn't hesitate to own it.
