Nuff the Mummy - Spoiled 3,250 year old mummy of
an Egyptian Pharaoh prince (Elyes Gabel) on the live-action series I LOVE MUMMY/YTV/2002-03.
Nuff returns to life after a 13-year-old boy named James Barnes (Reece
Thompson) reads some hieroglyphics on a sarcophagus that he finds in the house
recently inherited from his Egyptology-obsessed great aunt.
Before his miraculous resurrection, Nuff had been sentenced to ancient
Egyptian purgatory by the gods for the last 3,232 years. Apparently, Nuff was
refused entrance into the Golden Palace (Heaven) until he completed a number of
tasks (3, 242 plus 10 for bad behavior) that were found written on a thick
scroll in his sarcophagus. Not interested in returning to purgatory, Nuff
decides to take up residence at the Barnes' new home.
To give Nuff a cover story, the Barnes move his sarcophagus upstairs to the
attic and tell all the neighbors that Nuff is a foreign exchange student with a
bad case of eczema.
Other cast included Mark Caven as Set and Earl Pasko as Hep.
The half hour live-action Canada/UK comedy co-production (26episodes) was
produced by Breakthrough Films & Television Inc. and Winklemania Productions
Ltd. in association with the British Broadcasting Corporation. and YTV/A Corus
