Indiana Jones References on TV

just saw a "Malcom in the Middle" rerun where the father was running out of work and the Raiders March started playing , as he ran he bumped a table and pencils fell onto a fan - throwing the pencils at him like darts, then he bumped a container of beach balls - and one rolled toward him as he ran, finally the security gate that is at the entrences of stores in malls and such is closing - and as the father slides through he drops his keys , which he then snatches quickly as the gate closes (like indies fedora)

wondering if anyone else remembers any other Indy Reference on tv if theres another thread like this i havent found it and nuke this one :P

Simpsons: Bart switches bag for Homer's penny jar and homer rolls down the stairs like the boulder after him.

Family Guy: Peter is in a bar when a giant chicken pops up from nowhere and starts fighting him and backdrop changes to Raiders plane scene

There's also another scene from Family Guy where Peter is looking for something in his attic and he holds up a staff and sunlight shines through the top of it and lands on a certain box, just like in Raiders.

I am also pretty sure there were refrences when Stewart and Brian are going to Europe, they end up In Egypt, and have a "fight" not to different than the basket scene in RotLA

When I was a kid, I used to watch Chip & Dale- Rescue Rangers. The "adventurous" chipmunk wore an Indy fedora and brown leather jacket.

Not really TV, but related. In the Brady Bunch movie, "A Very Brady Sequel",
the beginning features two Indy-type treasure hunters in Thailand.
The Paramount logo fades into a jungle mountain just like "Raiders".

ANOTHER Family Guy episode (the one where they go on The Diane Show) has Peter saying to Meg, ''now I won't give you the antidote....'', when she asks what for he replies ''for the poison you just drank'', making reference to the start of the movie 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'.

Also in an episode of MacGyver where he's asked to go find the Holy Grail he says "Indiana Jones already found it. I saw the movie."

There was also an episode of The Venture Bros. where one of them was dressed like Indy and they were going after a golden idol like in Raiders. I don't normally watch that show but I was flipping through the channels and the Indy theme caught my interest.

A little cartoon squirrel wearing a fedora plus leather, squinting away bizarre lines in Finnish... man, and I thought I was tripping.

New Family Gou

The new Family Guy DVD, has Seth doing one of his finest Indy references ever!
Stewie is saying how he the year he spent in Korea was the worst ever, and there is a flash back to Stewie as Shortround, Indy, and Willie in the room under the Temple as he sets off the trap and the roof closes and spikes come in. As Willie screams Stewie (Shorty) says, something like "Shut up woman, your only here because your humping the director!"

A few other great Indy references and some cool Star Wars ones as well. The best is a Ferris Bueller Day off rip off!

God, Love family guy!

UHF isn't an Indy reference on TV.

True, but the title, "UHF", refers to television so it's sort of fitting.
Thanks for posting that link, Indy Parise! I never bothered checking
that movie out but definitely will now.

Yet another Family Guy reference.

During an infamous "Chicken fight" the final fight erupts under a familiar looking propeller plane from Raiders. Of course, Peter is on the ground and cringes as the chicken gets his.

UHF is one of my favorite movies and the Raiders spoof at the beginning is hilarious and certailny worth a viewing, especially for us Indy fans.

Magnum PI rocks.


I just hope he wasn't wearing those creepy short-shorts with that jacket and fedora.

Heh, you beat me to that one -- I was planning on mentioning it eventually myself...

UHF is a very fun movie indeed!

Tonight on TV, there was episode of "South Park" that was all about
"Raiders of the Lost Ark". The kids were trying to stop Lucas & Spielberg
from making and releasing a digitally enhanced version of the movie and
several scenes were re-enacted. Spielberg was Belloq, Lucas and Coppola
were Dietrich and Toht, with the kids as Indy & Marion. The canyon scene
and entire altar finale were cleverly played out using typical "South Park"
wit. Some briefs shots of the *new version* showed the opening temple
sequence of Indy facing the idol, swinging over the pit while pursued by
Ewoks...some very funny stuff.

There was even a fake commercial for the digitally re-enhanced 1st
season of "South Park" complete with CGI. Man, did this ever make
me laugh. Parker & Stone really went for it on this one!

I think the episode was from 2002 so it might have been done during
the hype for the DVD releases. This was a good one, so try and see it
anyway, anyhow or anywhere you can (or choose).
