Great entertainment for both children and adults
Flutwelle12 March 2005
This is a lovely animated series which incorporates real names from ancient Egyptian history. There is lots of interesting information about Egyption folklore and historical facts. The storyline is wonderful. It also teaches children about friendship,selflessness,trust and loyalty. I got hooked when I was watching the morning news programs, just as I was about to leave the house for morning errands this show followed. Ever since I tape the episodes for viewing later. I am truly addicted! I hope the series continues for a long time. The characters are both funny and engaging. Highly recommended as a replacement for the other flat children's' morning TV programming.

Series humanizes mummy.
moonofsunrise5 November 2005
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.

a good show

This is a pretty entertaining show all in all. The main character is Cleo Carter who does errands and odd jobs at a history museum. She awakens a 3010 year old mummy, Tutankhensetamun (tutenstein) and they go on crazy adventures about the city when gods or demons are accidentally awaken or disturbed. The main enemy is Set, who tries, uding his minions, to steal Tutenstein's magic sceptre. The show is quite good, and the animation isn't bad either. The opening titles are alright, a nice job done there, and the magic 'effects' like portals are drawn in an interesting style. This is an interestingly plain, and nice, take on the mummy genre- not too overdone, but still plenty of adventure. Although Cleo telling tutenstein off for misbehaving gets a bit tired after a while, considering he's meant to be the pharoah.

I miss this show

12-year-old Cleo's knowledge of Ancient Egypt is turned on its head when a bolt of lightning awakens the mummified body of child Pharaoh Tut-ankh-en-set-amun on display in a local museum. Together with her pet cat Luxor, she attempts to help him adjust to life in the 21st Century. I really miss this show back in the day it was always on TV but now every single show we see it's pretty terrible or just another pointless reboot this one was something original for it's time Tut and Cleo's friendship was always something i loved in the show and their dynamic relationship showed up in every episode. I'll give "Tutenstein" (2003) an A+
