All 40 episodes on 4 DVD's
The image quality is a bit of a disappointment since they crammed 10 episodes per DVD as well as some bonus features. That said, when I play this on my computer, my DVD fan will run very high because so much space was used on the DVD's. In my opinion, it would've been a lot better if they released this on Blu-Ray. As we all know, Blu-Ray DVD's can hold a lot more space than regular DVD's. Personally, I gladly would have forked over $50 for the complete set (as long as it's in airdate order and uncut) on Blu-Ray either that or they should have put them on more DVD's but I suppose this release will do for now.
The packaging is pretty piss poor. The DVD's come in 4 paper sleeves and a single DVD case. Whoever thought that was a great idea to hold DVD's that way should be fired. This puts the DVD's at risk for scratching and plenty of finger prints. Whatever happened to the days when companies released complete series in actual box sets or thinpak releases?

A fun fact is this show came into creation from the Children's Television Act that wanted more educational programming for kids. The entire series run is included on these four discs and to be fair, almost all of them are in pretty good condition. (Only true issue is with the audio for "By A Whisker" but is minor at best)
The show stars ACME detectives Zach and Ivy as they tail Carmen Sandiego across the world attempting to catch her. There are plenty of twists and turns along the way including Carmen teaming up with them to foil criminals not as classy as herself.
Plenty of talented voice actors adorn this series including Scott Menville as Zac, Rodger Bumpass as "The Chief", Jennifer Hale as Ivy, and the timeless Rita Moreno as Carmen Sandiego. It is one of those series that stands the test of time and while giving you a history lesson, it doesn't throw it in your face.
My only issue is that the series was sadly cancelled before its time and never truly had the ending that it deserved. The best part of the entire deal here on Amazon is that you get nearly 15 hours of video for less than $10 dollars and since it is the entire series run, that can't be under sold. You can find most of the episodes on the Internet but no one truly has the full run of episodes.
What are you waiting for, "Buy it now!"
While I do enjoy the series, I have notied that Ivy comes off very butch for being such a kids show and Zach is too much of a lazy butt. While they work well together and show they do care about one another, I feel their individual roles are a little overplayed.
And the campy Cheese the chief pours on all the time can get annoying if you are watching several episodes in a row.
While I will suggest adding this to your library, most of the facts are still very relevant and can help young and old with some history, geography as well as introduce them to some other diverse cultures. Take it in small doses.
