    "Where in the world is, Carmen Sandiego *Very low voice*"

    I'm sure this has been talked about in one of the really old files, but what the heck I'll bring it up again for the new members.

    Who has fond memories of this show? We could talk about the live one or the animated one I suppose. But I liked the live one myself.

    The theme song was sweet! :P

      I loved this show. It was sweet. If it wasn't for this show, i probably wouldnt have done so well in geography. It was an educational show as much as a fun show to watch. Now, kids have dora the explorer, which is awful. Great show.....Rockapella...Justin Case...yeah....

        Never really got into the show, but I thought the Carmen Sandiego computer games were fun.

            I remember when the Chief, Cherlynne Thigpen, died. It was the first time I realized I had started growing up. I wasn't the biggest fan of the show, but I had to stop and look at my life and direction, et al. Also, my friend is a marching band instructor and has been known to use Rockapella covers to write sheet music for his band!

                I believe the alien was called Nimoy from the planet Roddenberry

                    Wasn't this show on public television, too? I wonder if kids watch as many pbs shows as we used to.

                        Aside from the ones mentioned (the alien's name was spelled Neemoi, by the way), the only one I remember off the top of my head is Vic the Slick.

                        And yet somehow I can remember pretty much all of the VILE henchmen from "Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?" Go fig.

                            I also remember that the winner got to go to the bonus round where they ran around a giant map of a random continent and had to place like 8 red light/flagpoles on the correct countries. I remember it used to piss me off because sometimes the kid would get an easier map like Canada or Australia while other times a kid would have Africa or Asia.

                              Yeah that was the final test for the main prize. I think the big prize was that they got to go to 1 of the 50 states of their choosing.
