* 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.

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.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Most of the first episode with teenage Indy is in Spanish with English subtitles, both from the Mexican characters and Indy himself. This is a severe contrast to later episodes where TranslationConvention and JustAStupidAccent is the norm, with foreign dialogue only present when the script strictly called for it (e.g. Indy showing his knowledge of the German language when he volunteers for intelligence gathering in the Western Front).



* EstablishingShot: A given in a show like this.

** There's a throwaway gag in "Attack of the Hawkmen" where Indy, after being captured, has been invited to dinner by Baron von Richtoven:
--->'''Von Richtoven''': ''(Snaps fingers)'' [[Music/TheBeatles Sergeant! Pepper!]]

* SpinoffBabies
* StockFootage
* TactfulTranslation: While fighting in the Mexican revolution, Indy is tasked with translating the {{Title Card}}s of captured American silent films and newsreels. When the reel turns to the revolution from an American perspective, Indy attempts to play off the footage as respectful to Pancho Villa, but fails: the revolutionaries shoot up the theater.

* SpinoffBabies
SpinoffBabies: Of ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', showing underage Indy and a younger version of his father (plus characters only mentioned in the film, such as Indy's mother and childhood dog). [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Had the third season been filmed]], we'd also been treated to the younger version of Belloq and the final onscreen apparition of Abner Ravenwood.
* StockFootage
StockFootage: Noticeable in battle scenes, which often feature shots inserted from war films. There is also the occasional recycled footage from the series itself (in one episode with teenage Indy in Paris, you can see briefly see Indy's father and childhood nanny on a carriage from the time they visited it during the World Tour).

When the reel turns to the revolution from an American perspective, Indy attempts to play off the footage as respectful to Pancho Villa, but fails: the revolutionaries shoot up the theater.



* YouLookFamiliar:
** Paul Freeman (Belloq!) as real-life explorer Frederick Selous in two episodes.
** Actors would often play multiple roles in the series; sometimes this could get a little confusing. The most iconic example is Vic Tablian, who already had two different roles in ''Raiders'' (Barranca and the Monkey Man). Here he plays villain Demetrios in the two-parter "The Curse of the Jackal" and an Armenian saboteur in "Istanbul, September 1918".

* WellDoneSonGuy: Just like in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', Indy has a strained relationship with his father; In his early years his father was a stern but loving family man if a [[TheStoic little emotionally distant]], but after Indy's mother died his father in grief shut himself in his work. More poignant in the episode when after being away for several years fighting in [=WWI=] Indy returns home and is received by his father as if he just left the last week.
