The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (TV Series 1992–1993) Poster

Trivia

Had the series been renewed for a third season, Young Indy would have been introduced to younger versions of characters from Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981): Abner Ravenwood ('Jerusalem, June 1909') and René Belloq ('Honduras, December 1920'). Other episodes would have filled in the blanks between existing ones ('Le Havre, June 1916', 'Berlin, Late August, 1916'), and there would even have been some adventures starring a five year old Indy (Including 'Princeton, May 1905').

Harrison Ford was offered the role of the older Indiana Jones, but he turned it down, since he thought television had nothing to offer his career. However, Ford appeared as a middle-aged Indy in the episode "The Mystery of the Blues", where he recalled one of his early adventures.

For one of his brief appearances as the middle-aged Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford sports a beard. This is because he was filming The Fugitive (1993) at the time his scenes were shot, and he didn't have time to shave it off.
