Lois Lane and an explorer set out on an expedition through an underground cavern and discover a race of hawk-men. When these creatures prepare a ritual sacrifice for the adventurous pair, Superman comes to the rescue.
After famed Egyptologist Dr. Jordan is found dead at the foot of King Tut's sarcophagus with a syringe by his side, his assistant Jane Hogan is charged with poisoning him and eventually convicted of murder. At the Daily Planet Clark Kent receives a call from Dr. Wilson of the Egyptian Museum who tells him of the mummy's curse. An examination of the sarcophagus quickly reveals how Dr. Jordan was killed but when King Tut reanimates his personal guards, it will take all of Superman's strength to take the day. Written by
In the final scene, Clark Kent is clearly voiced by Sam Parker (who was the voice of Lemuel Gulliver in the Fleischer brothers' feature-length Gulliver's Travels). It is not clear why Clark Kent's usual voice, Bud Collyer, did not perform this segment. See more »

A Superman cartoon from the 1940s--and one of the worst if not THE worst! Dr. Jordan (who studies Egyptian mummies) is found murdered and his assistant Jane Hogan is unjustly accused of it. Clark Kent gets a call from a colleague of Dr. Jordan who is convinced Jordan was killed for violating a mummy's grave by opening it. He goes to the museum to check this out (with Lois secretly following him) and finds out the truth. But (through circumstances too ridiculous to tell) he revives THREE mummies who all attack the professor, Lois and Clark. A good thing Clark is Superman.
Really dumb cartoon. The animation is great with some spooky mummies but the story is preposterous, there's a LONG story about the ancient Egyptian king that drags and his name is King Tush--that had me speechless! The fights are dull and it ends on a "joke" that had me groaning aloud. Real bad. A 3.
