I'd have to say that "Mummies Alive!" is about average for a cartoon series. The story lines seemed good up until the last half season or so before it went out of production. The animation was decent; and the characters were enjoyable. About the only thing I can find fault with is that I don't think some of the storylines were used to their full extent, wrapping up in a "Star Trek ending," where a good story is told through the first two-thirds or three-quarters of an episode and then solved with some quick plot device in the last five minutes. Some of these episodes would have made good cliffhangers had the authors not wrapped them in one.
