Storyline

Tom and Jerry are police officers, driving around in their car and enjoying listening to some music on their police radio, when they hear a bulletin announcing another theft of a mummy from the local museum. They stumble upon the culprit, a mysterious and ghoulish man who is carrying a coffin through a secret door in a cemetery. They sneak in after him and watch him command the mummy to life; it is a beautiful woman, who he then commands to sing for his audience of skeletal theatre-goers. Tom and Jerry break up the evening and try to escape with the stolen goods, with mixed results. Written by jjwbenso

The Magic Mummy stars Tom and Jerry. No, not THAT one!
21 August 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The summary mentions that Tom and Jerry play cops who are after a mummy thief. What it doesn't tell you is that this Tom and Jerry is not the same as the MGM cat-and-mouse duo. They are a couple of humans, one tall and one short, who starred in a short-lived series of animated shorts for Van Beuren in the 1930's. The mummy woman in question has a voice that sounds exactly like Max Fleischer's Betty Boop which may be because, like the Fleischer Studio, Van Beuren's was also in New York, possibly across the street. So Mae Questal may have pulled double duty around this time! The duo don't appear much except in the beginning and end so they don't really have much to do which is reserved for the Boop woman and her skeletal superior. Interesting and partly amusing but if you're looking for something hilarious, watch some REAL Tom and Jerrys from the MGM 40s!
