He goes to her father to ask for her hand but the old mummy playing poker with the father claims the girl, but the pharaoh degrees it must be settle by a chariot race. Dinky has trouble with his chariot-horse as it has a wooden leg, and insists on chewing on the old mummy in the other chariot, making the wrapping unfold and disclosing an old man with long whiskers.

This Dinky Doodle cartoon begins with Dinky and Pete the Pup helping Walter Lantz get into a corset. Walter then puts on a Cleopatra outfit and leaves, presumably for a costume party. I certainly hope so. It gives Dinky nightmares and he dreams he is in Egypt.

Cartoons, of course, are not a place where one hopes for accuracy of imagery, and even less so in a cartoon dream, so once we get past the Sphinx, camels, people walking sideways and mummies, we get into a trope from BEN-HUR, in which Dinky gets into a chariot race with a mummy. The result is competent, rather than inspired; gag set-ups are repeated for different punchlines instead of choosing the best one and coming up with another gag. The resulting cartoon is decent but no more.
