TV-series James Bond, Jr.

Directed by Bill Hutten

Our heroes travel on a field trip to the Egyptian ruins to witness Professor Giza open the recently discovered tomb of pharaoh Hiphurrah. They arrive to find the tomb being raided, and the raiders flee, leaving behind only one clue: a black scarab pendant. After examining the pendant, James Jr. Notices that it bears the symbol of pharaoh Fearo: a Egyptian tomb raider with ties to S.C.U.M. Inside the scarab is a map of the local area and what appears to be a network of pipelines. When they return to the tomb they discover that the mummy of Hiphurrah has vanished. The only witness is a security guard who claims saw the mummy walk. (source:
