Note: Some facts may no longer be valid at this point in time, like the names of world leaders who were current at the time. But most of the information has a historic basis.
ACME detectives Ivy and Zack work on cases where they are on a nearly perpetual mission to apprehend and catch the 'uncatchable' criminal thief Carmen Sandiego. Together they must decipher the clues that she leaves behind in order for them to solve and recover stolen items especially of historic landmarks.
This series is very educational for younger TV goers especially kids and teenagers and yet even for adults like myself as I was just entering adolescence when this series premiered in early 1994.
Although catering to younger audiences, I am suprised that grandparents have found this to be very entertaining as many older people I know have actually told me that they loved this show. It goes to show how diverse it's fans really are.
As of writing this review, animated TV series have declined back into banal garbage lacking any good character development and no innovation. WOEICS pushed the limits in animation and stands as a landmark series of the 1990s.
This DVD is of the first season of the series and is highly recommended for all CS fans out there, wherever they are!
If only the biggest reason possible for watching any video: It is both entertaining and educational. Now when I say educational, I don't just mean there is a few things you can learn. I mean there is lots you WILL learn. Although primarily geared at a younger audiance (which means this is perfect for elementary school classrooms!), there is still much I at my age (early 20's) still will learn from this. After watching the whole series once through recently, I knew I would have to watch it at least twice more to learn most of everything it was offering. As well, it is 'Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?', so obviously you will learn about things from all over the globe.
Of course, if it were just educational, it would be only classroom appropriate and wouldn't have lasted four seasons. The series does have a good action pace, with well placed humour and deffinite kids appeal. There's even a bit of mystery (through Carmen Sandiego's character -of course). It is a very well rounded show.
Now, the only thing I need to know is... Where in time are the next three seasons coming out on DVD?
