Info from The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, also known as The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, is an Emmy Award-winning American television series that ran from 1992 to 1993. A form of "edutainment," the series explores the childhood and youth of the fictional character Indiana Jones. The series primarily stars Sean Patrick Flanery and Corey Carrier as the title character, and George Hall played an elderly version of the character for the bookends of most episodes, though Harrison Ford bookended one episode.

Critics' reviews
  • "Though boringly narrated by a 93-year-old Indy, the tales are the stuff of many a kid's adventure story - back when kids still read."
  • "First, the good news: It's handsome, scenic and colorful, produced with a lavish flourish rare for television. Now, the bad news: It's a rompety, clompety bore."
  • "Spectacular...You have never seen educational value so imaginatively and colorfully packaged."
