The other day on Facebook someone posted one of those stupid “remember these???” videos. Normally it’s something stupid like candy or a GameBoy. Of course everyone remembers those.

This one was different. It was successfully more obscure. It was the opening for Mummies Alive!, a single season cartoon from 1997. I had all but forgotten that it even existed. It followed a modern day boy being pursued by an immortal sorcerer, Scarab, from ancient Egypt. He possesses the spirit of an ancient Egyptian prince, and the prince’s guardians (the mummies) come back to life to protect the prince once more from Scarab.

Well played silly Facebook post. Well played.

So my question is: Does anyone remember this? What are some other obscure shows from your childhood?
