SCUMM stands for "Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion". It is a utility used to create the famous LucasArts adventure games.

It was initially created in 1987 by Aric Wilmunder and Ron Gilbert for the game "Maniac Mansion" and was used later, with some modifications, for Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders.
