* ActingForTwo: Due to budget constraints, most of the actors on the show portrayed more than one character, the notable exception being the two actresses who played Carmen Sandiego.



* TechnologyMarchesOn: The grand prize was a desktop computer with an 850 MB hard drive. Yes, 850 ''megabytes''. We have USB flash drives now with more space than that.
** Not an obvious one, but the second season opening sequence led with a machine moving a CD onto a reader. One could argue the disc is some sort of more advanced storage device, but given the time frame and that it seemed the disc contained numerous case files.....

** ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EIULR-zLEk did a spoof of the show]], with Kevin actually doing the voiceover of his character having martial problems while taping an episode of the show.

Successor to ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego'' on Creator/{{PBS}}, '''''Where in Time Is Carmen Sandiego?''''' challenged kids with history instead of geography. The action took place aboard The Chronoskimmer, a massive floating TimeMachine powered by knowledge and dancing crew members. The gumshoes were renamed "Time Pilots", host Kevin Shinick was their "Squadron Leader", and "The Chief" Lynne Thigpen from ''World'' had a much less prominent role. And for the first (and, to date, only) time, a live actress played the lady in red herself.

** A number of the questions relate to some of the clues given in the main game. So, it's possible to win with a lack of knowledge if you've been paying attention all game.
