It originally aired from 1992 to 1993, taking the form of hour-long episodes, as ''The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles''. The series principally showcased Indy at the ages of 9-10 (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, a noted medieval scholar. The Flanery episodes primarily deal with Indy's service in WorldWarOne, in just about every theater you can think of. In each episode, Indy would meet some famous person from the early 20th century, and learn some sort of moral lesson. Yes, Lucas very openly envisioned the series as edutainment.

* WarIsHell: In "Spring Break Adventure" Indy writes to Ned about how he wishes he could be in the war and it's mentioned that Ned wants to see action. The series shatters Indy's idealistic perception of war throughout the series by showing the horrors of the trenches, machine guns, artillery, chemical weapons, and disease culminating in "Winds of Change" where it's shown how badly the war has broken and changed Indy and Ned.

* WideEyedIdealist: This series reveals how idealistic Indiana Jones was in his youth, often to the point of naivety.
** As a preteen kid, he was too innocent and frequently wandered off on his own to explore the amazing world around him, often being oblivious to the potential dangers waiting for him.
** As a teenager, he decided to volunteer as a soldier and spy in UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, acting under the belief that he was doing something very heroic by fighting on the Allied side. But some traumatic experiences gradually erode his prior beliefs, especially in realizing that the conflict was [[GreyAndGreyMorality far from being as black-and-white as he thought it was]].
