Eerie, Indiana: The Other Dimension is a spin-off of Eerie, Indiana. This series aired on the Fox Kids Network in 1998.

Premise[edit]

The series revolves around best friends Mitchell Taylor and Stanley Hope. Like earlier Eerie, Indiana residents Marshall Teller and Simon Holmes, they are constantly encountering strange and out-of-this-world phenomenon in their hometown. Helping out in their adventures is the mysterious local bartender, Mr. Crawford.

Opening credits narration:

  • My name is Mitchell Taylor and I've lived in Eerie, Indiana all my life. Up 'til now my biggest complaint was that everything was too normal. I always wished that something would happen, something weird even. If only I'd listened to that old saying, "Be careful what you wish for, it might come true."

Characters[edit]

History[edit]

In 1997, the earlier show Eerie, Indiana generated a new fan base, when Fox's children's programming block Fox Kids aired the series, gaining something of a cult following despite its short run. The renewed popularity in the series, encouraged Fox to produce this spin-off.[1]
