Funny Show
Man, you have to go through a lot if you've never posted comments here before. Anyway, Maniac Mansion was a charming, original and funny show that aired on the Family Channel in the early 1990's. I haven't watched it since then, so some of the details are lost on me, but it was mainly about a family headed by a kooky inventor/scientist (Joe Flaherty) who had a lab in the basement of his home (which looked a lot like Wright's Ennis-Brown house). One day, his son was accidentally transformed into a full-grown man with the mind of a toddler, but the family carries on like it's "just one of those things." And that's just the beginning. Uncle Harry has been transformed into a fly (only his head stayed the same), there's an errant meteor on the property, and almost every episode contains a dreamy fantasy sequence. The acting is over the top--basically, it's wacky, wacky fun. If this series were on DVD, I wouldn't hesitate to own it.
