""A little boy named Presley found a secret out this year, that he was once a Pharoah when Egyptians ruled the world. Now this sorceror named Scarab tries to get him day and night, but Presley has four guardians to protect his very life. He has The Mummies/From 1525 B.C. He has The Mummies/Protection for the new Rapses. He has The Mummies/They're hanging at the Western Gate. He has The Mummies/They're gonna save the world today/The Egyptian way/Mummies alive!"
I love all things Egyptian, and I love this show. The theme song that I quoted above pretty much sums up the plot. It is truly a shame that this quality show was cancelled after only one season due to poor ratings. I enjoyed this show in its initial run during the Fall of 1997, and in subsequent years, I have enjoyed its revival in syndication. I Purchased this DVD on 02/03/2010 while in the grip of a powerful wave of nostalgia, and I've been watching it repeatedly since its arrival. I sincerely hope that the entire series of 42 episodes will soon be released on DVD. I know that I'm not the only "Kidult" that remembers and loves this show. DVD contains the episodes "Ra,Ra,Ra,Ra" "Sleep walk like an Egyptian" "Pack to the future" and "The gift of Geb"
