I can't believe I forgot to make a thread about this *classic* TV show, it is my favourate live action TV show. I hope you guys know what I'm talking about, it aired around the early 90s.

 Some of my favourate episodes include:
1) The episode where the cash machine kept giving out money.
2)"The City Of Lost", loads of things went missing and The World of Stuff shop was missing a piece of jigsaw from every puzzle.
3) The episode where everyone had to have an eye test and there was that wierd woman with those crazy eye tester glasses.

Sorry I can't be any more precise but I can't remember the names of any of the episodes except "The City Of Lost" or the names of the two kids.

Did any of you used to watch it?

I loved that show, too bad "Round the Twist" and "The Zack Files" were crappy rip offs of it.

Oh yeh, I remember that one, that was a really cool one. Others I have remembered is the one where one of the boys meets himself as an old milkman and another where a ghost came out off a book in the Library.

I used to love that show, but I can't remember many specific episodes. Just a few,

>Something to do with Werewolves and a prize-giving conspiracy.

>The lead character enters a parallel world where all the "lost" children go and there are freaky garbage men.

>And another where a tornado comes and everyone holds a ceremony.

Just plain wierd but I really liked it.  smile

I remember one with a mom and her son and they slept in Tupperware to stay fresh and young. 

that was one of the few shows for kids that wasn't moronic.  And it's off the air now, of course.

Luckily this awesome TV show finally got released on DVD just over a month ago, as a complete box set. I've finished watching my way through all 19 episodes now, and I must say it's as great now as it always was. Maybe it was primerily aimed towards kids, but the fact it never talks down to it's audience, along with the fact it's so well written, with great ideas, nice pop culture references, and pretty good acting for kids, makes it great for all ages.

There were a couple of episodes I'd never seen before. And I love the kid with the grey hair; "Dash X", such a cloolsome character. My fave episodes are "ATM With a Heart of Gold", it's the one with Mr Wilson, the friendly banking machine. "The Losers", this is about the City of Lost, where everything goes missing to. "The Lost Hour", which is about Marshal not setting his watch back, and waking up in the lost hour. "The Loyal Order of Corn", this is similar to Stargate, with a portal to other worlds. Dash X is great in this one. And finally, "Reality Takes a Holliday", which is where Marshal goes home and finds his house is a movie set, and his entire life is a script. A genius episode, really gets you in the whole weird situation. God bless DVD's...

I have to get that dvd, I loved the show, it was so freaky, I can only remember the 'bureau of lost' episode in detail though.

Also liked the mummy one, plus the show had the awesomest title sequence ever, swirly things, elvis, gorillas and garbage cans.

Wasn't Joe Dante (the guy who directed Gremlins) involved in this show somehow?

I loved it, but only remember 2 episodes: the one where the kid with braces gets the ability to talk to dogs, and the one about 2 kids who both loved the new girl in town.  Then one of the kids died, and the new girl got his heart in a transplant.  After that, the 2nd kid tried to date the girl, but whenever he got close to her, her heart would start beating erratically.  Turned out the dead kid's heart was trying to stop the other kid from dating the girl.

It was better then I'm describing it.

You’re right, I believe Joe Dante was indeed involved with the show. I think some of the shows magic is through him...

The episode you described is a great ep, I think it's called ‘Heart on a Chain’; because the guy that later gets killed, gives the girl a necklace with a heart pendant on it. He then manages to control his donated heart in her body through the heart pendant. I'd say it's the most sentimental and sad episode of Eerie Indiana. When the cherub statue guy at his grave sheds a tear towards the end, I've gotta admit I got teary too. It's one of the very few TV shows to have made me do that, and it isn't Futurama!...

At TVTome.com you can check out an episode guide, as well as some other stuff about the show.

I'm glad this show is released on dvd.

Does anyone else remember the show on Nickelodean about the kids who sat around a camp fire and told scary stories?

Oh man, I forgot about that show. That used to be part of my saturday morning line up along with Teenage Mutant Turtles, Garfield and Pee Wee's Playhouse. That was a great show.

Oh That show? I vaugely remember that episode.

Sif' Round the Twist was a ripoff of it. That show was loosely based on the fiction for Paul Jennings. Loosly because to be going to different locations and hiring different actors all the time is too expensive for a kids show.
