They're hanging by the 'Frisco Bay!  
I will be the first to tell you that my generation grew up with the best selection of cartoons. (I admit to using the term 'generation' loosely) Not only was some of the stuff created for us among the best ever, we had ready access to all the classics our parents grew up with, and a steady flow of edited anime in disguise. It was great and I'll choose my DVD collection over Cartoon Network any day! That being said, I still have faith in Greg Weisman!

Anyway, this trip down Nostalgia Ave. isn't for anything as wonderful as, say, Gargoyles.

I've stumbled across "Mummies Alive!" and I'm about to waste lots of my time reliving some more of my "childhood". Don't remember it?

That's probably for the best!

A little boy named Presley
found a secret out this year
that he was once a Pharaoh
when Egyptians ruled the world
and now some sorcerer 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 by the ‘Frisco Bay.
He has the Mummies.
Protectors of the world today.
So Mu-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
He has the Mummies.
From 1525 B.C.
He has the Mummies.
Protection for the Pharaoh teen.
He has the Mummies.
They’re hanging by the Western Gate.
He has the Mummies.
They’re going to save the world today.
The Egyptian way.
They’re Mummies Alive!

As the lyrics state, the show is about a little boy named Presley. He's nowhere near as cool as Mighty Max, and Norman could totally take his four mummy guardians, but that's not why we're here.

We're here because Presley is gasp the reincarnation of Prince Rapses, son of the Pharaoh Amenhotep. I really don't remember more about the plot than him being chased around by Scarab, the default evil adviser type. I do remember Rath being my favorite mummy. He was green, smart, and socially inept. I also liked Nefer-Tina. She was pretty awesome too and she drove fast.

I've only watched one episode so far and it was everything I was expecting: cheesy and full of bad puns! But oh so worth it. One down, forty-one to go! Let's go kick some Tut!
