It has been said...

that a man's best friend is

his mummy.

In Egypt today, this theory

is to be in great dispute.

For two bold adventurers...

are about to discover...

another kind of mummy.

I'll have a waiter for you

in a minute, sir.

Hey, the meat's on fire.

How stupid can you get?

How stupid do you

want me to be?

There you are, sir.

The meat is

still on fire.

Dr. Zoomer, have you

any statement for the press?

You may say that I have

discovered the mummy of Klaris...

Prince of Evil.

And that somewhere in the

sarcophagus is a clue...

which will lead to the discovery

of the tomb of Princess Ara.

I see.

That's very interesting.

Go quickly and tell Semu

that we have located Klaris...

and will return him

to the tomb of his people.

And the Doctor?

He will not

escape punishment.

Well, as soon as I can find two

trustworthy men to accompany my mummy...

I will ship it to the States.

Who is that?

Dr. Zoomer.

Where's Rontru?

In the other room.



Dr. Zoomer found

the mummy of Klaris.

Then get it.

Have you no fear

of the curse of Klaris?

There is no curse that a

gun or a knife can't cure.

Get Klaris away

from Dr. Zoomer.

It won't be easy.

You follow

the Doctor home.

If anything

should happen to him...

it will be blamed

on the curse of Klaris.

Past the pyramids, near the

ruins of an old temple...

is a large rock.

Search there and...

Now this is the place.

I overheard Dr. Zoomer say

he needed a couple of men...

to accompany his mummy

back to the States.

Is she afraid

to travel by herself?

She? No, his mummy is a he.

What's wrong with that?

Some mummies are men,

some mummies are women.

It's a strange country.

What's strange about it, Lou?

Your mummy,

wasn't she a woman?

I never had a mummy.

What'd your father do?

Win you in a crap game?

What's the matter? I thought

you were gonna slap me.

I said stop that nonsense.

Beloved Klaris...

you will soon be returned

to your people.

Now come on. We'll go in here

and try and get the job.

Let's get back

to the States.

Dr. Zoomer.

Must have went out to lunch.


A man wouldn't go out

and leave his door open...

with a valuable mummy

in the house.

Dr. Zoomer?

Dr. Zoomer?

Dr. Zoomer!

Something funny about this.

We'd better look around.

I'll look in that room there.

You search this one.

Dr. Zoomer.

Dr. Zoomer?

Dr. Zoomer?

Mrs. Zoomer?

Is your husband here?

Mrs. Zoomer?


Lou, what's the matter?

In there.

Bandages with eyes.

The mummy of Klaris!

Nobody could have

a mummy like that.

That mummy is 4,000 years old.

She looks it.

Come on. We've got to

take a picture of that.

Come on, follow me.

Well, where is it?

It was here.

What do you mean

it was here?

It was here.

Mummies can't walk.

It must be around here


The sacred medallion is


I'll search

the infidel Doctor.

You must hurry.

Klaris has been too long

without sustenance.

If Klaris is gone,

somebody moved him.

It wasn't me.

Then it's either Dr. Zoomer, or

there's somebody in this house...

who don't belong here.

And I know who it is.



Now wait a minute.

Take this camera.

You go and hide...

and take a picture of anybody

that comes in this room.

And if there's anything fishy going

on around here, we'll have the proof.

I gotta take a picture

of you.

Stay right there.

Now, would you mind

smiling, please?

Attaboy. Now,

will you lean back?

That coat's in your way.

Hey. Hey, I found

a dead body.

Maybe it's the Doctor.

Where is it?

First the mummy disappears.

Now a body disappears.
