This is the home page of PopApostle's exploration of 
the Indiana Jones story franchise. This includes studies of the movies, the Young Indy TV series and the franchise's associated comic books, novels, video games etc.

 

I am continuing to use the term "episode" here as I have elsewhere on PopApostle, as a separable piece in the continuous narrative of a larger story.

 

Below are the chronological studies of the adventures of Indiana Jones during the time of his life generally referred to as "Young Indy", covering the years 1899-1920, from his birth to his 21st birthday. Indy's adult adventures will follow when these studies are complete.

 

Many of these Young Indy adventures were first depicted in the 28 episodes of the two-season run of the The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles TV series on the ABC television network from 1992-1993. Most of the episodes were 1-hour long, with two 2-hour episodes. Most of the episodes also featured bookends with "Old Indy", a 92-year old Indy (portrayed by George Hall) in 1992 relating the story contained in the episode. The final four 1-hour episodes were left unaired at the time due to falling ratings that led to the series' cancellation. In 1994-95, four additional TV movies were shot to air on the Family Channel cable network 1994-1996. In 1996, the entire series was edited and combined into 22 2-hour TV movies with the franchise title of The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. The TV movie versions omit the "Old Indy" bookends and contain, in some cases, new interstitial scenes, while also omitting other original footage. PopApostle's studies of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles will attempt to cover elements from both the original airings and the re-edited TV film versions.

 

The 1-hour episodes of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles used the location and date of the adventure as the title of the episode, such as "British East Africa, September 1909", while the 2-hour TV movies would have a proper title. The PopApostle studies use a combination of the movie titles and references from the episodes, noting the original "title".

 

In the studies, PopApostle sometimes refers to the 0-12 year old Indy as "Little Indy", the 13-21 year old Indy as "Teen Indy", the "adult" Indy as "Indy", and the 92-year old Indy as "Old Indy" to differentiate the periods of their adventures.
