‘Watch Out for the Boulder!’ Six ‘Indiana Jones’ Parodies That Will Maintain You Operating


Regardless of so-so critiques and reminiscences of Harrison Ford bawling on the Cannes Movie Pageant, we might be talked into testing Indiana Jones and the Dial of Future this weekend, supplied it may well conjure up scenes wherever close to as pulse-pounding as Indy’s escape from a runaway boulder within the authentic Raiders of the Misplaced Ark

The boulder scene is such a basic that it’s been parodied a number of instances through the years, albeit with various levels of hilarity. To that finish, listed here are six instances that motion pictures and TV reveals winked at Indy’s nice escape…

LEGO Star Wars: Bombad Bounty

We’ll begin with this one because it’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it proposition. At across the 2:05 mark within the clip under, we discover Boba Fett on the Loss of life Star, closing in on the obnoxious Jar Jar Binks. The murderer has Binks lifeless to rights, however obstacles maintain getting in his manner. First, Han Solo chases a number of stormtroopers down a hallway; second, a bigger group of stormtroopers chases Solo down the identical hallway; and at last, Indiana Jones flees a rolling boulder. After Indy runs to security, the boulder crushes Boba Fett. Name it Harrison Ford’s Revenge.

Toy Story

Extra an homage than a parody, Woody decides the easiest way to eliminate new rival Buzz Lightyear is for the spaceman to “by accident” fall behind the desk. When Buzz leaps out of the way in which of a Woody-controlled toy automobile, he units a series of occasions into movement that frees a large globe. Buzz escapes the rolling orb, solely to get knocked out of the bed room window. Welcome to the neighborhood, pal. 

Muppet Infants

This isn’t the primary time Muppet Infants has parodied Indiana Jones, however it’s the latest. Child Kermit (boy, I hate typing that) steps onto a secret panel that unleashes a booby entice within the type of a shot-by-shot remix of the Raiders of the Misplaced Ark boulder scene. The distinction: Indy didn’t have L’il Animal to knock the rock into oblivion with a cavebaby membership.


It received’t shock you to study that nobody went more durable on an Indiana Jones parody than Bizarre Al Yankovic. In 1989 when his UHF was launched in theaters, it was really a semi-fresh concept to satirize Indiana Jones. Bizarre Al was all in, recreating the statue steal (this time, it’s an Oscar) then working like hell from a boulder that chases him by caverns, previous the Sphinx and throughout numerous world landscapes earlier than squashing him flat like Wile E. Coyote on a Tuesday. 

Robotic Hen

Contemplate this parody an Indiana Jones mash-up, combining the unique film’s hijinks with Younger Indy from his failed 1992 tv collection. Begin on the 2:20 mark if you wish to skip straight to the boulder spoof, however the different Raiders stuff is fairly enjoyable as properly.

The Simpsons

When folks say the early seasons of The Simpsons are the very best, they’re speaking about love for sequences like these opening credit from Season Three’s “Bart’s Good friend Falls in Love.” It’s an animation/comedy tour de drive — and it’s simply the opening credit. Nothing to do with the remainder of the episode, thoughts you, only one standalone minute that exemplifies why the basic reveals are so beloved. Bonus factors for utilizing a rolling Homer because the boulder stand-in.
