When Marshall Teller's (Omri Katz) family moves to the small rural town of Eerie, Indiana (pop. 16,661), he discovers that their new home "is the center of weirdness for the universe."

The World O' Stuff's commercial slogans in "Zombies in P.J.s" are parodies of the songs Stop! In the Name of Love by The Supremes and Just Can't Get Enough by Depeche Mode. See more »
In the unedited opening introduction of the show's pilot episode Marshall can be seen riding through a neighborhood that has a large palm tree in the background. This clearly isn't Indiana, but a give away of the show's actual locations in California. See more »
[intro voiceover for the first season shows]
My name is Marshall Teller. I knew my new home town was going to be different from where I grew up in New Jersey, but this is ridiculous. Nobody believes me, but Eerie, Indiana is the center of weirdness for the entire planet. Item - Elvis lives on my paper route.

Thank you, little paper boy.
Item - Bigfoot eats out of my trash. Item - even man's best friend is weird.

The episode "Tornado Days" about a giant tornado called "Old Bob" credits "Old Bob as himself." See more »
don't be fooled by the comparison to X-files, etc.
"The X-Files" is sometimes an imaginative, funny show, but "Eerie, Indiana" during its first season was consistently so. It was far superior to "Are you afraid of the Dark" and "Goosebumps". I think in its more recent Fox incarnation, it probably lost something.
A better comparison than any of these would be to "The Adventures of Pete and Pete".
