The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles
The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was a 1992-96 TV series about the childhood and youth of the character Indiana Jones. The series primarily starred Sean Patrick Flanery as Indy aged 16-20, but also had several episodes with Corey Carrier as Indy aged 8-10.
The series was designed so that each pair of episodes could either be broadcast separately, or as a 2-hour movie-length episode.
The pilot episode was aired by ABC in the United States in March 1992. It was a two-hour television movie called Young Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Jackal. Eleven further hour-long episodes were aired in 1992 (seven in the first season, four were part of the second season). Only 16 of the remaining 20 episodes were aired in 1993 when ABC cancelled the show.
Harrison Ford, who plays Indy in the movies, made an appearance as Indy (age 50) in the episode "The Mystery of the Blues" that aired in March 1993. Paul Freeman, who played Rene Belloq in Raiders of the Lost Ark, portrayed an unrelated character named Frederick Selous in a couple of episodes.
