The Complete Adventures of Indiana Jones is the banner name given to the October 1999 VHS release that combined the The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones with the three movies existing at that time.
The collection was intended to have 25 chapters (one on each videotape), numbered in the chronological story order. However, only twelve of the chapters from The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones were released. These missing chapters were later aired on ABC in 2001 and would not see a home release until the DVD box sets which went on sale in the months preceding the theatrical debut of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in May 2008.
Each VHS listed itself as Chapter [X] in the Complete Adventures of Indiana Jones.
- Chapters 1-22 were the forty-four episodes from The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles re-edited into twenty-two feature length films as The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. The chapters that were actually released were:
- Chapter 6: Spring Break Adventure
- Chapter 8: Trenches of Hell
- Chapter 10: Phantom Train of Doom
- Chapter 11: Oganga, The Giver and Taker of Life
- Chapter 12: Attack of the Hawkmen
- Chapter 13: Adventures in the Secret Service
- Chapter 15: Daredevils of the Desert
- Chapter 16: Tales of Innocence
- Chapter 17: Masks of Evil
- Chapter 18: Treasure of the Peacock's Eye
- Chapter 20: Mystery of the Blues
- Chapter 22: Hollywood Follies
- Chapter 23 was Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
- Chapter 24 was Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (renamed in this and subsequent releases from its original theatrical title, Raiders of the Lost Ark)
- Chapter 25 was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
As well as being sold individually, Chapters 23-25 were sold in a box set that came bundled with Chapter 18: Treasure of the Peacock's Eye.
This release marked the first time that the three Indiana Jones theatrical films were released on VHS in widescreen format, and with THX remastering. Additionally, the box set versions of the films included new interviews with Harrison Ford, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg. The videos of the Adventures of Young Indiana Jones included customized introductions from Lucas, and interviews with Lucas and Sean Patrick Flanery.
