    Welcome to the site. This isn't much information for folks to go on. Can you provide more details ? Ex - were the children young ( say <= 12 ) or were they teens. How about the pets, can you give us any kind of description / characteristics ? Where was this watched, US, Canada, UK, other ? – Stan Jul 6 '13 at 15:14
  • I really like Mézga family, but the family were not traveling through space together. In the first series they (Aladár, the son) contacted a descendant from the 30th century, in the second series there were space travel (but only Aladár and the dog). In the third the family (+1 neighbor) traveled together but "only" around the world. – asalamon74 Aug 18 '17 at 14:26

I think you are talking about the Mezga Family an hungarian cartoon. Different names in different languages, but check the series here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_M%C3%A9zga_Family

check this italian website for some pics: http://www.anni80.info/cartoni/mezzil.html

  • I don't remember the Mézga family having 2 strange pets. – CodeTwice Jul 8 '13 at 23:00
  • But they do. A strange cat and a strange dog. – Maurizio In denmark Jul 9 '13 at 6:38
  • @sputnik21 Was this the cartoon you meant. I loved it when I was young. :) – Maurizio In denmark Jul 10 '13 at 14:36

The cartoon that immediately came to my mind is "Les Mondes Engloutis" (English: "Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea", http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spartakus_and_the_Sun_Beneath_the_Sea).

The story is about a weird girl, a man with a cool bracer, 2 kids and 2 strange, tatoo like pets travelling on a rubber duck-shaped spaceship-like vessel called ShagShag from their city located inside the planetary crust of the Earth towards the surface with the goal to save their artificial sun from dying.

  • This is great!! Thank you so much! Code Twice got it right; it's "Les Mondes Engloutis". I used to watch it on hungarian tv in the late 80's and even thou i didn't understand hungarian, (i am romanian) i was a fan of this cartoon. I still find my self humming the soundtrack. This series was really inspiring to me as a child. Thanks for your time! Enjoy! youtube.com/watch?v=p-IiD_JHLo8 – sputnik21 Jul 10 '13 at 16:15
  • Glad I could help! I guess we have been watching the show on the same TV channel then :) Can you accept my response then so that the question is solved? – CodeTwice Jul 11 '13 at 16:29
