A Lucas Arts game created by many of the same people who did Monkey Island and other Lucas Arts adventure games. It has excellent graphics, humorous writing and scenes that don't get weak over time. The Maniac Mansion gang travels through time with the Doctor's time machine to try and defeat Purple Tentacle. They're accidentally split up, though, so Hoagie hangs with the Founding Fathers, Bernard pokes around the mansion, and Laverne goes to the future.
