While in Egypt on an archaeological dig with Melbourne O'Reilly, the gang encounters Mummy of Pharaoh Scamses - a mummy who has a knack of turning tourists into zombie minions. Even worse for the gang is the fact that they are in danger of being turned into zombies themselves.

- The gang previously met Melbourne O'Reilly in 3-D Struction.
- The episode title is a play on "Mother knows best."
- This is the first time Velma is hypnotized.
- Scooby wears a blue bandana, instead of his regular dogtag and collar. With the exception of the scene at Chantal's where he's dressed as a dancer.
- Frank Welker is uncredited as the Mummy of Pharaoh Scamses, and the voice actor of the tour bus driver is uncredited, too.
- This is the first episode that has Mindy Cohn voice another character besides Velma.
- This episode was included in Cartoon Network's Scooby-Doo! Back to School Marathon (August 10–11, 2013).
- Disguises: Fred as a sheik; Shaggy & Scooby as sultans; Velma and Daphne as the Fatima Sisters; Scooby as a belly dancer.
- Daphne says "Exit, stage right", a catchphrase of Snagglepuss (although, he was more prone to say "Exit, stage left").
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- After Daphne clipped the strap on Shaggy's sandal to pick the lock, Shaggy's sandal was back to normal for the rest of the episode.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Giza is on the outskirts of Cairo, but all the different sites are just lumped into being in Cairo.
- Melbourne was camping with the gang when the mummy watched them from atop the pyramid, and also with them when the mummy first appeared and made the sand storm. It couldn't have been Melbourne dressed up as the mummy, so it would have to be Prince Qasl or Madam Chantal.

Shaggy: The only problem with Egypt is that the only sandwiches here is the sand which is here.
Shaggy: Will you look at all those cobwebs? This might be the world's first website.
Melbourne O'Reilly: I'll get the blighter! (uses the wrappings from his mummy disguise to catch the culprit's leg)
