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 »

great cartoon series from Eastern Europe
14 October 2006 | by ('s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I used to watch it on Italian TV in the 80s, and I remember it as a very good cartoon, full of humour and inventions.

At that time, TV used to show mostly Japanese anime, so "La Famiglia Mezil" offered quite a refreshing diversion. I would have never imagined it was written in Hungary, since the western propaganda usually painted the eastern block as dull and repressed populations. Well, this cartoon could have been made in Italy, and it would have been just the same.

The animation looks very good too, especially if compared to other eastern European productions of the same period. Well done, Pannonia Studios!
