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 (1939)). It is not clear why Clark Kent's usual voice, Bud Collyer, did not perform this segment. See more »

For once, Clark Kent is told of a story and tries to hide it from Lois Lane, who follows him anyway. What would a Superman cartoon be without having to rescue her?
An Egyptologist is found dead, believed to be murdered - his young assistant is arrested and convicted of his murder. Another archaeologist believes that his colleague was killed by the mummy's curse - the Curse of King Tush (pronounced like the ZZ Top song, but this isn't what they were looking for).
As Clark is shown around the museum (and Lois sneaking around in the shadows), Clark presses something on the mummy's coffin, ejecting a poisoned needle and opening the sarcophagus. A medallion on the mummy starts to glow and opens the sarcophagi of the giant guards.
They start destroying the museum, which, for reasons unknown has a large fire for lighting. Can Superman save the day or does the supernatural win out?
