- "Be careful, Gadget. Remember Pharoah Poot-Ta-Toot's curse!"
"Nonsense, Chief. A 4000-year old curse is just superstitious rubbish."

The Curse of the Pharaoh is the 19th episode of Inspector Gadget.
Gadget, Penny and Brain are in Egypt to see the treasures of a recently-discovered Pharaoh by the name of Poot-Ta-Toot. Eventually, after an encounter and getaway from a M.A.D. agent, Gadget is assigned to guard the Pharaoh's treasure and sarcophagus, though he does not believe in the Pharaoh's 4000-year old curse. However, whilst on guard, Gadget gets into a tangle whilst doing macramé, then hears what he thinks is his stomach grumbling, and spends the remainder of the night looking for a snack machine. Meanwhile, three M.A.D. agents, disguised as jackals and a mummy, take off with the sarcophagus, but Penny manages to stop them with the help of Brain.
- The scene where Inspector Gadget encounters a boulder may be a reference to the Indiana Jones movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark.
