The now legendary, almost mythical character of Indiana Jones once had a childhood. Every episode starts out with the elderly man that he is in the 1990's getting into a specific situation where he has to tell a story from his past. The stories go back to when he was ten years old and on a world tour with his father, and to his late-teens when he fought in World War I.Written by

Filmed in twenty-three different countries, travelling over one hundred sixty-five thousand miles (approximately six times around the world). Cast and crew shot for one hundred fifty-two weeks, making this the longest location shoot in history at that time. The series featured over fifteen hundred speaking parts, fifty thousand extras, for whom over one hundred twenty thousand meals were served. Enough 16-millimeter film was shot, to go from New York City to Phoenix. See more »
In close up shots of 9-year-old Henry Jr., you can clearly see that his actor, Corey Carrier, has deep brown eyes instead of Harrison Ford's trademark greenish-hazel eyes, or Sean Patrick Flannery's bright blue eyes. See more »

Definitely one of the best series ever put out on TV. The historical intrigue was always interesting. Young Jones meeting Lawrence of Arabia, Picasso, and (my favorite) a very notable young Vietnamese revolutionary always kept your interest up. Plot lines, although sometimes a little trite, were usually well-done and faithful to history. Definitely a good successor to the movies with just enough action to boot.
Too bad it's not still on TV.
