  • Most people might have classified this episode as "revealing," due to the mummy's voice. After all, how many people know that the inhabitants of Memphis, Egypt sounded exactly like the ones from Memphis, Tennessee!moreless

    Seriously, though: I've loved mummy-movies since I saw the Boris Karloff flick of that title, way back when I was in sixth grade. When I became a teenager, however, I began to notice that the only difference between them, and zombie-movies, was the vast quantity of bandages!

    After seeing Brendan Fraser's two contributions to the sub-genre, however, I no longer take them so seriously. Or, at least, I thought I wouldn't. Until this episode came along.

    Why on Earth did the writers give a thousand-year old mummy a modern American drawl? Was he loaned to the Orchid Bay Museum from a Deep South version of the Smithsonian Institute? And, what was with the restaurant fixation?

    Did he overhear too many TV cooking shows while slumbering in his sarcophagus? Maybe Mr. Winick should invite Khomen-Getit to "Khomen-back" for a sequel episode. And, thereby, answer these lingering questions.moreless

    This episode starts out with June going with her friends to the Museum, which has been bought by the mall. Which can be seen in some of the near by places like; the Coffeesaurse, and the King Henry food court.



    We also find out that June has a Crush on a boy named Marcus and that they are doing a report together on a Mummy called Khomen-Ghetit. Later that night, Dark Mages come in to the museum and awaken the Mummy.



    The Mummy, or Skeeter Come N' Get it, sounds like a slick used car salesman and is ready to pick up where he left off, making as much money as he can by openning a fast food restuarant.



    June finds out about this as she is chasing a Zombie through town and bust in on the operation. She then confronts Skeeter and tells him he can do this. He promtely drops her into a dungen.



    We then see the commercial for the the resturant called Skeeter Come N' Get it's Waffle and Rib Emborium. After Ray Ray and Monroe see this, they try to find June there, but they get caught.



    Ray Ray then trys to start a riot, but Skeeter puts an end to it by using the Orb of Rafuk to raise more zombies to work in his resturant. By this time, June has fought her way out of the maze with Monroe's help and has gotten to the surface. She goes in search of the Mummy to distroy the Orb of Rafuk to get rid of Skeeter. After this is done, June and Marcus finish there project together.



    This episode is one of my favorites. It's funny and clever. The fact that they have the mummy sound like a used car salesman is hilarious. Plus, they metion that the Museum was bought my the mall. Which sounds like a slam at are usually commercial and flashy society. Plus if you look at the inside of the museum closely, you can see that it even looks like a mall. My favorite part of the whole show was the Commercial for the Resturant. It was just crazy.



    I find Skeeter's comments about using Zombies as employees very interesting. He says that they don't need healthcare, or a dential plan, plus they done eat or sleep. This sounds like most business villians in that they work there employees harder then they should. This is what Ray Ray capitalizes on when he starts the roit in the resturant. He was try to shut down the resturant by trying to get the Zombies to go on strike. I also liked the Star Wars references that Ray Ray used. "Even StormTroopers get coffeebreaks." Classic.



    One thing that does bug me about this is that this episode was originally made as episode 4 but was aired as episode 2.



    But all, in all, it was a wanderful episode that I enjoyed.moreless
