Originally in the early production, Roddy McDowall was going to voiced Luxor the Cat. But due his death in 1998, he was replaced by David Lodge who latter did a Roddy McDowall impression for the character in honor of him. See more »
I love this series. It's a unique take on the Egyptian culture. While some of the details are wrong... i.e. names/or details about deities, the spirit of the cartoon is there. Tutenstein, the child mummy, is as precocious as a living child. His world revolves around him, feeding his ego. Cleo is his perfect compliment as a friend. She keeps him grounded and, in a way, humbles him. It is funny and casts a sympathetic eye on the Hollywood image of the mummy. Not only is he human and flawed, he bucks the stereotypical image of the mummy character: arms out, stiff walk, trademark moan. Bravo to Tutenstein for giving the Mummy life after death... Literally.
