Marshall finds a script in his mailbox for a TV show called Eerie, Indiana (1991). As he starts reading, he suddenly finds himself on a TV set where his family are just actors and everyone calls him ...
Eerie doesn't have daylight savings time, but Marshall's determined not to miss out on the extra hour and sets his watch back anyway. Then everyone in Eerie disappears, except for some creepy garbage...
When Marshall Teller's (Omri Katz) family moves to the small rural town of Eerie, Indiana (pop. 16,661), he discovers that their new home "is the center of weirdness for the universe." Elvis (Steve Peri) lives there, as do twin brothers (Dan and Don Stanton) who stay young by sleeping in Foreverware. Each episode, Marshall and his friend Simon (Justin Shenkarow) collect evidence of the many creepy things happening in their far-from-ordinary hometown.Written by

In the episode "The Lost Hour" (a time-travel tale) Marshall wears a pair of boxer shorts with clocks on them. See more »
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.

Still don't ...

This will always be one of my favorite series of all times! Even if it was short-lived. Each and every episode was unique. Just when you thought perhaps Marshall(Omri Katz) and Simon (Justin Shenkarow) would spend a normal day doing what all normal kids do, something weird starts to happen and the two have to investigate or prevent more trouble than they already have from happening. The show seemed even better when Dash X (Jason Marsden) entered the picture, shortly before the show was canceled. This gray-haired kid,Dash wanted only to do away with Marshall and he almost had his chance. I would compare this show to The Twilight Zone and the X Files. You don't want to miss a single episode!
