Unfilmed episodes of Young Indy

Junior Jones has a nice timeline for Indy on his website:
http://home.earthlink.net/~pandersonfam/page2.html

I'm curious to know about the dates that follow "Hollywood Follies",
since that is the last episode in YIJC. Where did you get the info
on these?

Honduras - December 1920
Alaska - June 1921
Brazil - December 1921

Years ago, Indyfan.com had an article up called the Young Indy that Could Have Been. It was by a production assistant who had worked on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and the article listed some episodes that had reached some level of development but had never been filmed. There are supposedly dusty, old script drafts of these eps somewhere in the Lucasfilm archive.

The page isn't up at Indyfan.com anymore, but luckily I printed it out and its at home in my folder of fanfic ideas.

Wow! Very interesting. I'm assuming these others are from the same list?
I know Le Havre was mentioned in the show but wasn't aware there was a
planned episode.

Le Havre - June 1916
Berlin - Late August 1916
Moscow - March 1918
Bombay - April 1919
Buenos Aires - June 1919
Havana - December 1919

Thank you very much for the information, Junior Jones!

Unfilmed episodes of Young Indy

Hi, everyone

I've stumbled across an Indy timeline on the net at:

http://forums.nightly.net/lofiversio...hp/t20757.html

and on this it mentions "unfilmed episodes" of the Young Indy TV series.

I've never read anything about these before - can anyone help a fellow Raven patron out by pointing me in the direction of a book or website that might expand on these "lost" episodes further?

The summaries you read are about all that exists, that I've seen. I don't even know if they were scripted. Looks like they wanted to add a 5-year-old Indy, and team twentysomething Indy with Belloq.

Due to popular demand... or lack of?

Yeah, it's a shame there's not more out there - does this mean the Young Indy series was "cancelled" before Lucas got to finish it, then, I wonder?

Most of the stories were scripted, there were even a few that had scenes already shot for 'em. Then Lucas got word that they had been canned. Oh, well, that's show biz.

Unfilmed

Those unfilmed episodes of the Young Indy Chronicles sound really really interesting. I hope Lucas films them someday. The series ends very anticlimatically with a crappy episode, before we see Indy make the change from the YIJC Indy to the Indy of ToD, which is what we would've seen in these episodes:

December, 1920: On break from school Indy travels to Honduras on a search for the famous crystal skulls. Indy befriends a fellow young Archaeology student named Rene Belloq (who will become one of his greatest enemies). Belloq steals a crystal skull and sells it. (The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones – Unfilmed episode.)

While in Honduras the local authorities accuse Indy of being a graverobber rather then an archaeologist. Indy would latter claim that the newspapers greatly exaggerated the incident. (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom / Conjecture.)

June, 1921: On summer vacation from school Indy travels to Alaska to study Eskimo culture. Indy ends up having to rush medical supplies by dog sled to save a village. During this adventure Indy learns how to use a Bullwhip and decides to adopt it as part of his adventure gear. (The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones – Unfilmed episode.)

December, 1921: Indy teams up with Rene Belloq to find a lost city in Brazil, along the way they meet Charles Fawcett. (The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones – Unfilmed episode.)

If Lucas wants to put edutainment in front of kids, he should skip tv and give the scripts to Dark Horse comics.

Yeah,there were some interesting episodes written but never got to film them,the show was cancelled.
In the timeline you mention there are some mistakes anyway. The Russia episode was actually filmed,and the Mystery of the blues happens in 1920 not 1916.

Edit: my mistake the 1909 Russia was a new one.

Lucas should take these unfilmed stories and have a group of talented authors novelize and/or comic... ize them like he did his unfilmed Willow stories which he had Chris Claremont turn into a trilogy of novels.

I'd love for them to get Flannery back after Indy IV (not sure how old he looks now) and film a couple more episodes... Particularly if there are Raiders/Ark connections in Indy 4.

"Had the series been renewed for a third season, Young Indy would have been introduced to younger versions of characters from Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981): Abner Ravenwood ('Jerusalem, June 1909') and René Belloq ('Honduras, December 1920'). Other episodes would have filled in the blanks between existing ones ('Le Havre, June 1916', 'Berlin, Late August, 1916'), and there would even have been some adventures starring a five year old Indy (Including 'Princeton, May 1905')."

Seeing as Flannery is is older than Harrison was when he did Raiders, he couldn't exactly do that.

What a shame the Belloq and Abner episodes were never filmed.I wonder if Marion would have appeared in the Abner episode?

The Lost Episodes

The "Lost Episodes" of the YIJC (Jerusalem 1909, Honduras 1920, Brazil 1921) are, at least in my opinion, the "Holy Grail' of the Indiana Jones series. For me, if these had been produced, the world of Indiana Jones would be complete.
My question is to you: Do you think we'll ever see these stories in some form?

I believe Indy will return to the small screen at some point, probably via an animated series. There was too much unfinished business from the first time around for Lucas not to return to it. In animation, he has no real restrictions, so he could conceivably visit Indy in any era, jumping around his chronology... much like the first show and to some degree Clone Wars.

I'm really "jonesing" to see his early encounters with Belloq. Not to mention what he was up to during WWII. Perhaps some closure with Short Round or a new adventure with Remy. There is soooo much storytelling potential, it would be a tragedy not to give us these chapters!

I always wanted to see these episodes ever since I learned about them. Lucas should start focusing on the Indy EU more.

They really should have done the Belloq episode - or brought him into the fold in some form - in one of the TV movies after the show's cancellation.

SUCH a missed opportunity!!!
