Edna Edison is the wife of Dr. Fred Edison and mother of "Weird" Ed Edison. Perhaps because of her neglect by her husband, under the influence of the Meteor, she has grown a nymphomaniac and operated a hot line.

Maniac MansionEdit

She lingers in the Mansion. She is seen in a cutscene with Weird Ed, but seems oblivious of his worries about Fred's condition. She is first met in the kitchen looking in the refrigerator. She catches any kid she happens to meet and imprisons them in the dungeon.

Her room has a ladder to an attic with a safe and a door to the dungeon. The safe contains a Sealed Envelope with only a Quarter inside it.

Day of the TentacleEdit

This stub needs improving.


Her lines when catching a kid are sexually suggestive, so for the NES version these were changed to: "You'll be safe here until the police come."; "Just wait until I talk to your mother."; "I have half a good mind to talk to my husband". Similarly her hot line advertisement in Dead Cousin Ted's bathroom was changed and the suggestive "For a good time..." was removed. Finally, her lines on the phone were changed: Edna assumes that it is Ted and starts talking. Her number is unlisted and only Ted has it; this partially explains why Edna's number is written on the wall in Ted's bathroom.[1]
