3-DVD Set Packed With Extras!
Where On Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?, the Emmy Award-winning animated series, educates kids of all ages in the subjects of history, geography and fun through its action-packed adventurous tales of Carmen Sandiego and the ACME Detective Agency sleuths Zack and Ivy!
Presented in an expansive 3-DVD collector set, the show features the voice talent of Oscar/Emmy/Golden Globe-winning actress Rita Moreno.
Welcome to the first season of the Emmy-winning computer game-turned-animated series. Meet Carmen Sandiego (Rita Moreno), who swipes a cultural artifact or two in each episode. Dressed in red from fedora to heels, she's a vision out of a Technicolor thriller. On her trail, but always one step behind, are Ivy (Jennifer Hale, Justice League) and kid brother Zack (Scott Menville, Mission Hill) from the ACME Detective Agency. As the Lady in Red drops clues, the wisecracking Chief (Rodger Bumpass, SpongeBob SquarePants), a holographic image, helps the duo to decipher them (shades of 1980s phenomenon Max Headroom). In the pilot ("The Stolen Smile"), Carmen steals the eyes from a Van Gogh self-portrait. Why would she do such a thing? To solve the mystery, the globe-trotting teens travel to Holland, Egypt, and France. Along the way, they call on their knowledge of geography, art history, and zoology. Throughout these 13 episodes, including the two-part finale ("A Date With Carmen"), Ivy and Zack follow the master thief to India ("Dinosaur Delirium"), Russia ("By a Whisker"), China ("Rules of the Game"), and countless other countries. To track her down, the detectives also bone up on archeology, astronomy, biology, music, literature--and that's just to start. Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? ran on Fox for three seasons and the Fox Family Channel for its fourth (to add to the confusion, there was also a PBS game show). The fast-paced program combines hand-drawn cel animation--in a style that lies somewhere between Jonny Quest and Scooby-Doo--with stock photography, newsreel footage, and computer graphics. Every installment is book-ended by a live action sequence featuring "Player" (a stand-in for the viewer), who trades quips with Carmen via email. Portentous theme song aside, the end result is educational fun for the entire family. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
