In the unedited opening introduction of the show's pilot episode Marshall can be seen riding through a neighborhood that has a large palm tree in the background. This clearly isn't Indiana, but a give away of the show's actual locations in California. See more »
[intro voiceover for the first season shows]
My name is Marshall Teller. I knew my new home town was going to be different from where I grew up in New Jersey, but this is ridiculous. Nobody believes me, but Eerie, Indiana is the center of weirdness for the entire planet. Item - Elvis lives on my paper route.

Thank you, little paper boy.
Item - Bigfoot eats out of my trash. Item - even man's best friend is weird.

Most episodes have individual closing theme music tailored to the subject and mood of that particular episode e.g. a comical tune for "Just Say No Fun", Rock 'n' roll for "The Broken Record", poignant for "Heart on a Chain", romantic for "The Dead Letter," etc. with appropriate background imagery.

Eerie, Indiana is usually shown on Channel 4 in the hollidays in our country and I never miss it even though I have taped most episodes. My favourite episodes had to be the ones with Dash-X(Jason Marsden). I was upset when I realised there was only 5 or 6 in that series and it was then cancelled. There was so much that wasn't answered, for example, where did Dash-X come from? Why did he have grey hair?
This is The X-files but for kids and don't watch Eerie Indiana The Other Dimension because it doesn't have what the original series had (it doesn't even have any of the original characters). So if this is on TV watch it and see for yourselves that this is a good and entertaining show that shouldn't have been cancelled.
