This is essentially a Saturday-morning-cartoon-style version of the adventures of the intrepid archeologist family. The Mummy: Quest for the Lost Scrolls is an animated and more kid-friendly version of the stories in the action-packed thrillers The Mummy and The Mummy Returns. The plot is pretty much the same video-game version of Pandora's box as the feature installments.

Head of the family Rick is a big, brave, dashing, and very gung-ho American who more often ends up destroying mummies while saving the world from ancient curses than studying them. His brilliant librarian-turned-archaeologist wife is as feisty as the men. Uncle Jonathan provides some comic relief, while Ardeth, the brave Medji warrior, helps the family around the globe with his knowledge of Egypt and is always a hero without being too flashy.
