The Complete Adventures of Indiana Jones is the banner name given to the 1999 VHS release that combined The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones with the three movies existing at that time. It was the first time episodes from the television series were officially released on home video by Lucasfilm and the final time the theatrical films were released on VHS. Laserdisc versions were announced for the collection, but never released.

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. Upcoming chapters were announced for a 2000 release but were canceled, likely due to the rise of the DVD format.

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.

Release notes

As well as being sold individually, the theatrical trilogy (Chapters 23-25) were sold in a boxset that came bundled with Chapter 18: Treasure of the Peacock's Eye.

The set is notable for being the first and only time Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was marketed as a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark. However, the trilogy boxset inscription and opening commercial promoted the film as the second installment in the trilogy.

This release also marked the first time that the three Indiana Jones theatrical films were released on VHS in widescreen format, and with THX remastering. Each film's opening titles and end credits on the pan-and-scan versions were presented in letterbox.

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.
