About a year ago, Iím sure I saw some original concept/preproduction art from Maniac Mansion on Mixnmojo. Where did it go, and why?

Are you serious?! If there is truly some MM concept art out there, I want to check it out as well.

Looks to me like it never existed. I'm willing to be proven wrong though.

It did exist. Mojo had it in an interview with Gary Winnick.

Which leaves me to wonder why the Mojo staff seem to be rather ignoring this request.

That didn't qualify as proof ¨

Perhaps the Mojo staff have social lives and dont have time over christmas and new year to check forums :¨:

Also it could have been lost in the hacker attack.

This is the Day of the Tentacle artwork that was released for the LucasArts 20th celebration site.

Perhaps you remember this image and recall it as Maniac Mansion art.

Yes, there was a feature we had with Maniac Mansion storyboards provided by Gary Winnick. However, they were destroyed when our primary and backup servers died in the Great Annual Mojo Crash of 2003. We're working on getting our old features back (and I do have a backup of the storyboards somewhere), but no promises as to when they will reappear.

Excellent! Do you guys have backups of the trips to Double Fine, or were those completely destroyed?

Every article and interview we had on our primary and backup servers were completely destroyed. We're trying to find copies of those old features elsewhere.

And now, a special gift to the impatient (like me)!

I found these five pieces of MM concept art, which I took from the interview when it was first posted, hidden on the hard drive of my old computer.

There may have been more, but that's all I have. Still, I think that's all of it that was shown.
