Essentially ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''LordOfTheFlies'', the show combined the typical action and comedy of a kids' adventure serial with some thoughtful philosophy and symbolism, a big dose of meaningful drama and some surprisingly strong acting. Though never a runaway smash, the sheer originality of the series made it a favourite with its fans.

A constant thread throughout season 1 is Jay's pressing objective to [[MacGuffinEscortMission return the telescope to Brad.]] Several episodes involve him wagering it, breaking it or in some way putting it at risk. After he does return it, the telescope is never mentioned again.

** This gets totally disregarded in season 3, however.
*** Not exactly: Jay is awake in season 3, but it's strongly implied that part of his mind (or at the very least his subconscious) is still in Downworld: when Jay experiences an event or develops a relationship in the real world, it tends to trickle down to his "other self" as well.
* MindScrew: As the series wears on, the line between 'Jay's subconscious' and 'parallel dimension' starts to blur, particularly as Jay is evidently not the only real world kid to experience Downworld.

* OnlySoManyCanadianActors: Not quite as noticeable as some cases, if only because it was cast at about the same time the ''Franchise/{{Degrassi}}'' franchise was going into mothballs. But the cast overlap with AYAOTD is noted above.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The above-mentioned WorkingTitle. ''The Jellybean Odyssey'' would've been much more internet-search friendly, something that wasn't a concern in 1992 but was already becoming one by 1995.
