Young Indiana Jones and the Treasure of the Peacock's Eye[1] is the eighteenth film in The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. It originally aired on January 15, 1995 on The Family Channel, and was re-titled Treasure of the Peacock's Eye for release on home video on October 26, 1999. The home video edit is nearly identical to the broadcast version.

Though never released as independent hour-long episodes, the two halves of this film are distinct enough to be considered separate stories: "London/Egypt, November 1918" and "South Pacific, January 1919".

Publisher's summary[]

Chapter 18 in the complete adventures of Indiana Jones finds Indy vagabonding around the South Pacific on a treasure hunt for a fabled lost diamond.

The war in Europe ends but a new adventure begins for Indy when a mysterious man's dying words -- "The eye of the peacock!" -- send him and Remy on a thrilling treasure hunt for one of Alexander the Great's most treasured possessions. Pursued by a dangerous one-eyed man, Indy follows the trail of the diamond from London to Alexandria to the South Seas where he has a run-in with a murderous band of Chinese pirates. The shipboard battle that ensues is a spectacular display of swords, guns and flying fists. Marooned by the pirates on a remote desert island, Indy is captured by savage headhunters, but before they can turn him into a shrunken head and cannibal stew, he is rescued by anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski and makes a life-altering decision.
