Trivia

The series was to receive a revival in 2005, titled "A Mézga család és a (sz)ámítógép" (a wordplay-based title roughly meaning "The Mézga Family and the Computer/Humbug Machine"). It would have been a modern update about the characters, still the same age as in the 70s, discovering the world of computers and the Internet, with Endre Harkányi as the sole returning original voice actor. A pilot episode was completed and made public on the net. Plans for a full series fell through due to the lack of funding, since it would have been produced using expensive hand-drawn animation. Aside from that, some people have also suggested that a comedy about a bumbling family learning computer technology would already have been cliche and old hat in 2005. See more »

Hungarian cult series
10 November 2001 | by meitschiSee all my reviews

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.
