Storyline

One of Carmen Sandiego's many henchmen has stolen a rare cultural object. The Acme Crime Detective Agency hires three gumshoes (contestants) to find the crook and recover the loot. The gumshoe who captures the crook is then given the chance to locate and capture Carmen Sandiego by locating countries on a large map of a continent placed on the floor. The host, The Chief, and a variety of other guests help the gumshoes by supplying clues. A cappella music is performed at the beginning of the show, between game segments, and at the end by Rockapella. Written by Dan Dassow <dan_dassow@yahoo.com>

I really really miss this show!!!
23 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

This was an awesome show to make learning geography really fun for kids. I heard the reason that PBS took it off air was because when they came out with Where in time is Carmen Sandiego they thought that history was more important for kids to learn than geography. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego I thought made learning much more fun than Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego. I hope that sometime PBS will show the re-runs or even may'be make new episodes. As far as I know the only Carmen Sandiego shows that air in Canada now are Where On Earth is Carmen Sandiego and a French version of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego. As another user said on this comments page "If you ever get a chance to see re-runs I strongly recommend you do" well I recommend that also but chances are no we won't get to see re-runs. I think a petition should be made and sent to PBS to show how many people want Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego back on-air.
