Rick, Evy, Alex and the evil Imhotep

The series follows the story of Colin Weasler (voice of Michael Reisz) who travels to Egypt to dig at the Temple of Hamunaptra to get revenge against Evy O'Connell (Grey DeLisle), a rival colleague at the British Museum of Antiquities in London.

Using the "Egyptian Book of the Dead," Colin brings Imhotep (Jim Cummings) back to life, but fails to control Imhotep who commands Colin to search for the Scroll of Thebes.

To remain alive and to regain full power and dominion, Imhotep must find the Scrolls of Thebes and gain control of the Manacle of Osiris, a mighty device created by Osiris, King of the Underworld to vanquish his foes on Earth. Unfortunately, the Manacle of Osiris has affixed itself to the wrist of Alex, Evy's young son.

Fortunately, the archeologist's only defense from Imhotep is the Manacle of Osiris which gives Alex amazing powers and the ability to see visions that keep Evy, and Alex's father Rick one step ahead of Imhotep's quest for the Scrolls of Thebes.

Eventually, with the help of the Manacle of Osiris, Evy reads a entry in the "Book of the Dead" that reverses Imhotep resurrection. But half way through the spell Colin Weasler knocks the books out of Evy hands. The book falls into a deep cavern and Imhotep, now weakened escapes with Colin.

Still determined, Imhotep, whose image is half-corpse and half-skeleton, uses a "Demon-of-the-Week" and the assistance of Colin Weasler to restore his body and his ultimate power.

Nicholas Guest supplied the voice of Ardeth Bey, an Arab warrior priest who assisted the O'Connell family and their battle with Imhotep. Ardeth commands the Medjai, a society of guardians sworn to protect the world from the return of the evil mummy Imhotep.

THE MUMMY: THE QUEST FOR THE LOST SCROLLS is a spin-off of the successful theatrical release The Mummy (1999) starring Brendan Fraser as Richard "Rick" O'Connell; Rachel Weisz as Evelyn "Evy Carnahan; Oded Fehr as Ardeth Bey; and Arnold Vosloo as Imhotep.

Opening Narration

It began in Ancient Egypt, with an evil high priest named Imhotep, who possessed the Scrolls of Thebes and sought to steal the Manacle of Osiris. They would give him the power to make the world
his own.

Fortunately, he failed.

Three thousand years later, the Manacle was rediscovered, but something went terribly wrong, and the Mummy rose again! Now the race is on to find the ancient Scrolls and in the balance, pin a young boy's fate and mankind's future.

TRIVIA NOTE: The short-lived 1993 BBC comedy drama UNCLE JACK & CLEOPATRA'S MUMMY (6 episodes) followed the adventures of Paul Jones as archeologist Uncle Jack who goes to Egypt with his niece Helen and uncovers strange things at the Tomb of El Wadi Whant.
