The Riddle of the Pyramid
Netherlands/Germany/Japan, 1989  TV  

TV-series Alfred J. Kwak

Directed by Dennis Livson, Hiroshi Saitô


Episode from the animated television series "Alfred J. Kwak" (a.k.a. "The Adventures of Alfred J. Quack") which follows the adventures of a children's cartoon character from a Dutch theatre show by Herman van Veen. Compared to other children's television series, Alfred J. Kwak features exceptionally mature and often difficult themes. Episode 34, "The Riddle of the Pyramid", is about the quest for a cure for professor Ramses, who is critically ill. The only curse seems to be an ancient medicine known to have been buried with pharaoh Tut-cat-cammon. Alfred and his friends set out to find his pyramid, but once there get trapped in a room without exit. The storyline is continued in the next episode 35 "The Labyrinth" (not listed here).
