Trivia

The series was to receive a revival in 2005, titled "A Mézga család és az ámítógép". It would have been a modern update about the same characters (though still the same age as before) discovering the world of computers and the Internet, with Endre Harkányi as the sole returning original voice actor. A pilot episode was completed and given a special screening at a theater event, but only the opening themesong was ever made public. Plans for a full series fell through due to the lack of budget, since it would have been produced using expensive hand-drawn animation. See more »

One of the best shows made here in Eastern Europe
20 September 2007 | by (Bulgaria, Burgas) – See all my reviews

Nice show. Very nice indeed. Much of the stuff in it (e.g., the wife's worries about the "small apartment" the family lives in, the "contact" with the neighbor, etc.) is still part of the everyday jungle we here at the east of Europe live in. You see, no American film can capture Eastern European life so good. And putting this together with fantasy makes this a very wild series which we in BG find closer.

This film initially aired here a long time ago, and now it's rerun on cable TV (interestingly, with The Scooby-Doo Show (1976-1978), a show that was made around the same time but was never broadcast here back then). The other thing that amazes me is how good the show's currently airing copies (in Bulgaria) look like. Our own films are of much worse quality, so I can only say to the Hungarians: You're the best!
