** The first half of the Congo storyline (aka ''Oganga, The Giver And Taker Of Life'') has '''a lot''' of parallels both to ''Film/AguirreTheWrathOfGod'' and ''Film/ApocalypseNow'', with Indy's regiment going through a long trek through the jungle and down the Congo river that increasingly threatens everyone's sanity.
*** Of course, both films draw heavily from Literature/HeartOfDarkness, which was also set in Africa.

* AffablyEvil: The Red Baron was very much so in "Attack of the Hawkmen."

to:

* AffablyEvil: The Red Baron AffablyEvil:
** TheRedBaron (Manfred von Richthofen)
was very much so in "Attack of the Hawkmen."Hawkmen". After shooting down the plane Indy was riding in and taking him prisoner, Richtofen invites him to have a nice lunch together.
** Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck was also quite affable in "Phantom Train of Doom". Even while actively trying to evade capture by the Allied forces, Lettow calmly discusses military tactics with Indy; and even after finally being defeated, he gifts Indy with a compass to show no hard feelings.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: As this is a Hollywood production after all, the show sometimes bent historical truth for entertainment value.



* DarkerAndEdgier: "Trenches of Hell" and "Demons of Deception", since despite the BloodlessCarnage, they show a gritty picture of [=WWI=] trench warfare.

"Trenches of Hell" and "Demons of Deception", Deception"; since despite the BloodlessCarnage, they show a gritty picture of [=WWI=] trench warfare.warfare.
** "Oganga, the Giver and Taker of Life". While Indy and Remy travel with an army unit from the Belgian Congo across the African frontier, many of their men become extremely ill and die, including [[spoiler:Barthelemy]].



* DeliberateValuesDissonance:
** In "Tangiers, 1908", the Jones family and Ms. Seymour arrive in Morocco, where chattel slavery is still legal. They have a debate with a local nobleman regarding the morality of slavery.
** In "Princteon, 1919" and "Chicago, 1920", Indy encounters some racist hostility for being a white guy trying to befriend black people.

* LighterAndSofter: Almost any episode involving Kid Indy (played by Corey Carrier), which usually lack the violence found in episodes about Teen / Young Adult Indy (Sean Patrick Flanery).


Added DiffLines:

* ParanormalEpisode: One film involves Indy and a team of spies visiting an apparently haunted Transylvanian castle and trying to find a rogue Romanian general, who is heavily implied to be some kind of {{Dracula}}-style vampire.


Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

* CaliforniaDoubling: Yes and no. Most of the series was shot in London, South Africa, Spain, Morocco and the Czech Republic, but they still managed to send the actors to many actual locations and film more than the EstablishingShot there.

Added DiffLines:

* HalloweenEpisode: Though not aired during the initial series run, "Transylvania, January 1918" seems to have been intended as one with its bookends of Old Indy with trick-or-treaters, supernatural plot, and the villain of the episode being [[spoiler:a reincarnated Vlad Dracula.]]

* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Both Indy and his father take this opinion of Indy's mother after her death. Notable because one episode is all about showing her as a regular person who is tried and tempted (notably, with cheating on Henry Sr. with Italian opera composer Puccini) and makes mistakes like anyone else.

* GreatWhiteHunter: TheodoreRoosevelt is portrayed this way in an episode set in Kenya in 1909. He kills dozens of rare animals in order to have them shipped back to America so that they can be displayed in museums, where ordinary people can come to be educated about them. Indiana eventually gets him to see the contradiction of someone who has such high regard for animals shooting so many of them.

** Watch the Young Indy series and see him slowly grow more and more cynical and wily, especially during his activities during WWI.
*** The first time he shoots someone ever (during the Mexican Revolution) he actually ''apologizes'' afterward.

* ObstructiveBureaucrat[=/=]VastBureaucracy: In "Prague, August 1917" Indy encounters these in Austro-Hungarian Bohemia, and is driven mad with frustration (Author/FranzKafka has a small role there).
** Although the bureaucrat in charge of dealing with bureuacratic errors is actually quite helpful - his department even issues simpler forms.

* ReCut: In the original ''Young Indiana Jones Chronicles'', each show began and ended with short scenes featuring a 93-year-old Indy (with an EyepatchOfPower) circa 1992. He'd narrate adventures from his youth--the titular "Young Indy" stories, here told in flashback--to basically anyone who'd bother to listen (and some who didn't). However, in the later ''Adventures'' re-edits, the Old Indy segments were edited out entirely. Instead, newly (and often, poorly) shot linking footage, starring the other original members of the Young Indy cast (that is to say, the characters from the around-WWI era) was used to bridge the gaps.
** The recut also removed Old Indy's ''daughter'' and ''grandchildren''. An early script for [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull the fourth film]] also gave Indy a daughter, but Spielberg decided against it as he felt it was too similar to [[Franchise/JurassicPark Ian Malcolm's]] situation in ''The Lost World''. The daughter thus became a son as seen in the final film.
