In the episode "Heart on a Chain" Melanie's heart doctor is named Romero; an homage to horror director George A. Romero. 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 »
Sometimes I wish we collected stamps for fun, instead of battling the forces of weirdness.

I used to love this show when it first aired. One episode in particular that I remember was the one where Marshall had another friend and they were competing over this girl. She had a heart problem and needed a transplant. Marshall's friend ended up getting hit by a truck and the girl got his heart. Then when Marshall started getting close to her, the heart started giving her trouble. It was pretty sad. When I saw a while ago that the series was being aired again on cable, I tried to catch every episode. I saw the tornado episode about 5 times but of course I missed my favorite one. I just wish they'd release it on dvd (like practically everything else). And if there's any show that compares to it, I would say Disney's "So Weird". It's a really good show. There are some lame episodes, but a few of them are extremely well written for a kid's show. Of course, it went through the same problems as Eerie, Indiana. Some of the characters left and it was cancelled, but at least it lasted a couple of seasons. I hope the next time a kids series comes along that is well written and can be enjoyed by anyone, it will be given a better chance.
