A Seventies (or early Eighties?) Hungarian cult series that is still very popular and widely quoted in Hungary. It tells about an average middle class Hungarian family with father, mother, teenage daughter and a younger son. The son always experiments with electronic apparel and thus draws his family into sci-fi adventures in time and space. The highly original and comic dialogue (probably too complex for young children), the well recognizable types, and some famous, regularly used lines (like the line the mother always says at the end of each episode: "If I had only married Pisti Hufnagel instead!") make "Mézga család" good and intelligent entertainment for adults and older children.
