Trivia / Eerie, Indiana

Go To

  • Blooper: Halfway through "The Losers", the hand of a crew member clearly appears.
  • Channel Hop: From NBC primetime to Disney Channel for a brief period in the mid 90's, then to Fox Kids Saturday mornings (FK then commissioned the Other Dimension revival thanks to the reruns getting high ratings).
  • Spiritual Successor: Gravity Falls, a fact that that series' creator seems to be keenly aware of.
  • The Other Darrin: An amusing subversion: it eventually turns out that the Mr. Radford who started the series was a compulsive impersonator named Fred Suggs, who had the real Radford (played by John Astin) tied up in the basement all along. Radford doesn't press charges because the guy was such a good salesman, and he later turns up as a teller for the Bank of Eerie. Only Marshall notices. Does that mean some poor bank teller is tied up in a basement somewhere?

  • Out of Order: "The Broken Record" (the one where an introverted nerd with an abusive father becomes a rebellious punk) was aired as the last episode, but was clearly written and filmed earlier in the season (it was pulled by NBC due to content), which means that Dash-X is completely absent even though Jason Marsden was still listed in the opening credits. Streaming versions of the show have "The Broken Record" as the eighth episode, and accordingly revert to a version of the credits from before Marsden was part of the regular cast.
  • Star-Making Role: For Omri Katz, who would go on to play Max Dennison in Hocus Pocus.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • If the show had kept running, it would have eventually been revealed that Dash-X is some sort of artificial construct.
    • Originally, the producers wanted to do an episode centered on pirates invading Marshall's house in search of a lost treasure, but the show was canceled before it could be written.
