The Magic Mummy
USA, 1933

Directed by John Foster, Vernon Stallings

  

Tom and Jerry are police officers, driving around in their car and enjoying listening to some music on their police radio, when they hear a bulletin announcing another theft of a mummy from the local museum. They stumble upon the culprit, a mysterious and ghoulish man who is carrying a coffin through a secret door in a cemetery. They sneak in after him and watch him command the mummy to life; it is a beautiful woman, who he then commands to sing for his audience of skeletal theatre-goers. Tom and Jerry break up the evening and try to escape with the stolen goods, with mixed results. (source: IMDb)

Short animation by John Foster and Vernon Stallings for RKO Radio Pictures. The main characters are named Tom and Jerry, but bear no relation to the later famous cat and mouse.
