Mummy's the Word is the first part of the third episode of the first season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


While driving through an Egyptian desert, the guys are caught up in a sandstorm, and when they uncover themselves, they spot a pyramid and it's spooky inhabitant, a ancient mummy.


Scooby, Scrappy and Shaggy are driving through the Egyptian desert and enter a pyramid, following Scrappy, who then tries on a pharaoh's head, scaring the others. They are chased by a live mummy and temporarily escape by disguising as paintings. They are next attacked by crocodiles in an indoor lake, whom Scrappy easily takes care of.

When the mummy finds them again, Scrappy merely unravels its bandages, but its spirit follows them outside. The gang see this as they still hear his moans and see his footprints, and run to the Mystery Machine, driving off.
