Storyline

May 1917. Sixteen year old Indiana Jones joins an international trio of spies plotting against their German counterparts in the neutral city of Barcelona. After his old acquaintance Pablo Picasso helps him get a job at Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, Indy devices a plan to forge a love letter written by the German cultural attaché to make it seem he is having an affair with the Countess of Toledo. In August of the same year, Indiana is reassigned to Prague where he is to receive an important phone call. Unfortunately his hotel room proves to be unequipped with a phone. Indy heads for the Ministery of Telephones, where he learns that having to confront Czech bureaucracy can be quite a trial. Written by Il Tesoro

Most annoyingly hilarious episode/movie ever
17 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As like the other Young Indy "movies" there are two stories in one. The first part is set in Spain and Paulo Picasso returns which is quite nice but he doesn't have a huge part like in his first episode. The second Austria. The latter is one of the most annoyingly hilarious episodes ever made for either just television or even if the 45-minute second part was a feature length movie. It was so tense that my eyes have never been so wide open and my jaw just like in classic cartoons was down to the floor. It's just a simple adventure for Indy but it turns really frustrating. All he needs to do is stay in an apartment for three days and on the third day he will receive a "very important phone call that could change the course of history". But in the apartment he discovers there is no phone and asks a woman where it is and she says people took it. Indy then goes into the most nightmare-like incidents that gets him in court, jail, up and down every single building and rolls down flocks of stairs on the cabinet. It is terrifying, and really really tense and it would be nice if there was another episode that was like this, even though comedy doesn't suit Indiana Jones it would be nice to see another one
