(Episode: “The Curse of Anubis”)
Synopsis: A political plotter thinks he can unite all Arab peoples around a stolen Egyptian artifact. Unfortunately for him, the theft gets the attention of Team Quest and of an ancient mummy, whose animated, revenge-focused existence fails to raise a single scientific eyebrow during the entire episode.
Tip 7: Religion and politics don’t mix.
Like this fellow, you may think that “When there is real unity among Arab nations, Anubis will bless us”—
But such discussions require a very specific sort of audience.
You never know whom you might offend…and you’d better hope it’s not the gods.
(Author’s note: I can’t tell you all how happy I am to reach this episode. I forgot the first two Jonny Quests were straightforward adventure stories—easy to do when you’ve seen some of the weirder ones!—and have been spending many Mondays slumped over my laptop whining about how much I miss Highlander. But now…you know…we can start the party.)
Next time: Bride of Frankenstein, because I’m pretty sure I’ve really seen that one before.
