This series tells the stories of this family’s funny but sometimes
hairraising adventures. The head of the family is Mrs Paula Mézga, of course.
Her desires and demands make things happen. In the good old times she
married well below herself – Géza Mézga is a simple clerk lacking any kind
of practicality. She does not fail to constantly remind him of this fact
especially when the situation is hectic. At times like this she sighs and
remarks that she refused Steve Hufnágel’s hand in Géza’s favour.
The parents have two children. Aladár, a taciturn little boy engaged in
mysterious experiments and Kriszta, a teenage chatterbox. The fifth
character of the series is the very much hated neighbour, Mr Máris.
