I was working hard trying various ways to perfect Maniac Mansion with the meteor police route (best attempt was 9:40), when I discovered a glitch that made the route obsolete. :-) :-(

There is a well-known glitch in the game that can paralyze Edna while a kid is in her room. The programmers tried to prevent this glitch from working on Purple Tentacle. However, Arc demonstrates an oversight by the programmers.

This game has crazy music.
