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.
