** Later, Nanny finally realises that Igor wanted her to hit the beak of the statue. Unfortunately for Igor, ''he'' is now standing under the chandlier to sound the gong for dinner, and is crushed beneath it when it falls.
** Igor's plans to kill Scott and Laura at dinner are thwarted by Nanny spilling the poisoned soup and Laura's endless story of her large family boring him to sleep. He tries turning a crank to lower a platform of spikes onto their bed, but cannot get the crank to turn, and when he enlists Nanny's help, his coattails get caught in the gears, dragging him into the mechanism.

'''Hoomite:''' Yes! All who trespass in the great pharaoh Upshi's sacred tomb shall die!\\

Hoo-rah, and up she rises!\\

** First, he tries to deploy a FallingChandelierOfDoom, but the spyhole next to the trigger, the beak of a statue, is blocked off, and the nearest unblocked spyhole is too far from the beak. He tells Nanny to press the beak when he gives the word, but when Scott and Laura are standing under the chandelier, Nanny misunderstands and hits ''Igor's'' beak instead.
** Next, Igor tries to open a trap door in the library to dump Scott and Laura into the pit of the castle werewolf, Towser. However, he forgets which book acts as the trigger, and causes the bookshelf to swivel around and crush him. When he finally does find the correct book, the door gets stuck until Scott and Laura follow Duckula into the next room, and Igor himself tries stamping on the door... which opens and dumps him into Towser's pit.
