* ItWillNeverCatchOn: In the 1996 version of ''World'', there are "good guides" who will give you a tour of your current locale. The tour of Moscow has Dee Plomassy singing the praises of the dawning era of democracy in Russia. In retrospect, her optimism about TheNewRussia seems just a bit premature.

* DependingOnTheArtist: Carmen always has the red coat and hat, but beyond that how she looks in any given depiction can vary quite a bit. What is she wearing under that coat, and how much do we see of it? (The ''Where on Earth?'' cartoon, for example, kept the coat closed but showed a yellow scarf or collar around Carmen's neck, while later PC games had the coat open and Carmen had a black bodysuit.) Is her hair brown or black, straight or wavy?

The 1996 game notably added a pearl necklace, which was critical to identify her among a crowd of imposters.) Is her hair brown or black, straight or wavy?

** At least with ''World'', the reference was an Almanac; most of the information in one of those can now be found on [[TheOtherWiki Wikipedia]]. ''Europe'' used an atlas and asked questions about what color country X on page Y was. ''[=USA=]'' what the last word on page Y of the Fodor's travel guide was. Have fun guessing!
