Urgent Please Help!

I used to play a game back in elementary school in early 2000. I have looked everywhere with many keywords trying to find the game. You played as an archeologist/paleontologist. It was a learning game where you would dig up fossils at a dig site. You would click the dig site square, then it would bring you to a 2d image of the ground and on the right it had a menu with the various tools (shovel, brush). You would dig up the fossil or bones, then you would have to brush them until they were white, and then a small man with a grey moustache and wearing a cliche archeologist desert brown outfit would take them to a museum. Please help me! It was a learning game and I remember the same computer had Cro-Mag on it as well and Thinkin' Things fyi.

It is not I can be a Dinosaur Finder or Nanosaur.

Perhaps it's "I can be a Dinosaur Finder"? I did a search for Fossil.

This YouTube video seems to cover the 2D plane, dig up square, brush, and I saw a goofy small man without a mustache at 12:20 in the video.

It is not Designasaurus, because there is no Mac version of this game, according to Mobygames.

Had some idle hours and was looking for something with this description, eventually found Arcventure: The Egyptians, which is what I was looking for, but I don't know about the man with the moustache bit!

Remarkably, looks like the publisher's still trying to make a buck off it.
