Cover to the LaserDisc box set for The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (インディ・ジョーンズ/若き日の大冒険)

The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was a LaserDisc box set (Reference PCLP-00418) released by Pony Canyon in Japan on April 21, 1993. The eight discs contain fourteen episodes of the television series (the same episodes also adapted by Bungeishunjū in Japan), two of which ("Peking, March 1910" and "Paris, October 1916") had not yet aired in North America at the time of their release, along with the 24-minute behind-the-scenes documentary Young Indy: Around the World.

Both the episodes and the documentary are formatted in NTSC and presented in English with onscreen Japanese subtitles. The set also includes a ten-page colour booklet with a "Young Indiana Jones World Map" detailing the locations visited and historical figures encountered by Indy in these specific stories.

This was the first home video release in any format to arrange episodes in their narrative chronological order, foreshadowing the approach later taken by The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, but there were no further LaserDisc releases to include the remaining episodes originally produced for ABC and no LaserDisc releases at all in the United States or any territories other than Japan.
