great cartoon series from Eastern Europe
14 October 2006 | by MuttleySee 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!
