After this hilarious nonsense, the narrator then concedes: However, due to the fact that dubbing techniques had not been perfected in this period, you may notice that the movement of lips is not always synchronized exactly with the words being spoken" The Egyptian proves his point by setting the tone: The Egyptian is right on one thing, the prologue was indeed interesting and much, much instructive; however, I'm more doubtful about the word 'drama'.
Which foreign drama from most IMDb users' perspective would acknowledge dubbing's inconsistencies?
Hell, which animated feature would do so? To my knowledge, "Asterix and Cleopatra" is the only one to elevate the parody to such summits of hilarity.

On the other side, the suave and debonair Julius Caesar doesn't sugarcoat his words and provokes Cleopatra by stating that Egyptians are decadent and lost their touch as far as architecture is concerned.
Cleopatra then promises a sumptuous palace built in three months, it's a deal.

He and his secretary Papyris discuss the druid Getafix Panoramix in the original Frenchwhose potion empowers its drinkers; and Numerobis goes in search of him.
