Creator/GeorgeLucas prided ''Young Indy'' on managing a {{film}}-level quality production on a television budget, helped by revolutions in digital technology, and he has said that the show was partly a test to see how far he could take the later ''StarWars'' {{prequel}}s. Also like ''StarWars'', the series was subject to subsequent [[ReCut furious re-editing by Lucas]], the new cuts first showing up during re-airings in the late '90s. This re-cut version, which is the only one currently available on DVD, is known as ''The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones''. The ''Adventures'' combines the ''Chronicles'' episodes into two-hour tele-movies, two shows per film (often in a quite different, and much more strictly chronological, order than in the original airings). Notably, none of the Old Indy bookends are featured in the ''Adventures'' (though Harrison Ford's cameo survived the cuts).

The franchise is also fondly remembed for the two LucasArts adventure games it spawned: an adaptation of the third movie, ''Videogame/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'' in 1989, and an original [[AdventureGame cinematic adventure]] story, ''IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis'', in 1992. The latter had the FanNickname of ''Indy 4'' for many years, creating speculation that it would be [[WhatCouldHaveBeen made into a film]].

* NotSoDifferent: In ''Holy Grail'', Indy says of Henry, Sr., "He ''hates'' rats. He's scared to ''death'' of 'em," in a tone that suggests he thinks this is rather childish and squeamish. Of course, the audience is by then well acquainted with Indy's own fear of snakes.

A series of films (and ExpandedUniverse) produced by famous directors GeorgeLucas and Creator/StevenSpielberg, which were inspired by the 1930s cliffhanger serials, and which [[FountainOfExpies (re)popularized]] the AdventurerArchaeologist. Armed with little more than a bullwhip and attitude ("little more" in this case meaning a [[RevolversAreJustBetter .455 Webley]]), Indiana Jones (Creator/HarrisonFord) discovers long-lost {{MacGuffin}}s, fights ThoseWackyNazis over them and makes love to the GirlOfTheWeek. With the fourth film, produced 20 years later, the {{homage}} shifts to include DirtyCommunists, '50s creatures and sci-fi films.

''The Series/YoungIndianaJones Chronicles'' was a TV series produced by GeorgeLucas in the early 1990s. Initially taking the form of hour-long episodes, the show chronicled the adventures of Indy as a young man, principally at the ages of 10 (as played by Corey Carrier) and 16-up (as played by Sean Patrick Flanery). The Carrier episodes focus on Indy touring the globe alongside his parents as part of a world lecture tour given by his father, while the Flanery episodes primarily deal with Indy's service in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI (in just about every theater!). In each episode, Indy would meet some famous person from the early 20th century, and learn some sort of moral lesson (yes, [[GeorgeLucas Lucas]] very openly intended the series as edutainment). Notably, the show aired in a very AnachronicOrder, with Carrier's and Flanery's episodes often alternating. Each episode was also initially introduced by a 93-year old Indy with an {{eyepatch| of power}}. One episode however, had a bearded Creator/HarrisonFord introduce the adventure.

* TributeToFido: Indiana Jones is named after GeorgeLucas's dog Indiana. There is also an in-universe example that reflects the RealLife situation: in ''Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'', it is shown that the character chose the nickname "Indiana" after his family's dog.

* BittersweetEnding: The standard formula is that Indy discovers something of revolutionary historical, cultural and even religious and scientific importance, only to have the circumstances prevent him from publicizing any of it.

"Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye", a dark ride at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] in Anaheim, California, has you boarding Jeeps. You get, depending on which path isn't occupied, tons of gold/a drink from the Fountain of Youth/sight into the future, so long as you don't look into the eyes of a giant gold head of a god. [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption Someone, of course, looks]], the god pulls off his NightmareFace and you're on your way through a cave full of lava, snakes, and traps. The ride could fit anywhere into the {{continuity}}, really-it's in India and has a dangerous god, like the second movie, but the boulder from the first movie shows up and some of the rooms are very similar to the catacombs and desert temple of the third movie. A similar ride is at Tokyo Disney Sea, Temple of the Crystal Skull, changing to a [[HilariousInHindsight South American setting with a sinister Crystal Skull]] and wind effects replacing the fire and lava. Finally, there's Disneyland Paris' ''Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril'' rollercoaster, which was notably once set to send the cars going backwards for several years.

While Walt Disney World didn't get their own Indiana Jones ride, Hollywood Studios DID get the "Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!", a live action stunt show with massive sets that shows their own take on famous scenes from ''Raiders'': the temple adventure from the intro, the Cairo marketplace and kidnapping of Marion (complete with an exploding truck), and the fight scene on, in, and around a Nazi airplane. This show is completely non-canon as it's dressed up as a "film shoot" of ''Raiders'' with the stunt performers claiming to be the actual stunt doubles for the actors. The show includes audience participation (including audience members being taken as "extras" for the Cairo scene), pyrotechnics, various physical stunts, and demonstrations of how different stunts are performed.

Added DiffLines:

* ArchEnemy: Although he only appears in the first movie (he crops up more in the expanded universe), Belloq is widely acknowledged as Indy's. Movie dialogue reveals that the rivalry between the two goes back for "many, stimulating years" and that Belloq is almost sorry to see it end. It also implies this isn't the first time that Belloq's stolen one of Indy's finds.


Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: Colonel Dietrich in the first movie, Mola Ram in the second, Walter Donovan in the third, Irina Spalko in the fourth.
* BiggerBad: Adolf Hitler in the first and third movies, though he only has one brief appearance in the third one.
