The name “Mézga” means glue, mucilage or tree gum in Hungarian and was renamed as rodina Smolíkova in Czech, which is a surname (derived from “smůla”, i.e. “tree gum” or “bad luck”) used also in fairy tales, La famiglia Mezil in Italian, Familie Metzger in German, which means butcher,Семейство Мейзга in Bulgarian, Família Mézga/Mesga in Portuguese, and Miazgovci in Slovak.
