Creator/ShoutFactory [[TitleSequenceReplacement replaced that with the newer intro]] on their DVD.

* RiCreator/DiCEntertainmentulouslyHumanRobots: The Chief is effectively an OmniscientDatabase with an AI interface, but he's still capable of all the emotions a human is.

** This was lampshaded when the detectives travel to the future during Carmen's second time travel heist. After being dumped into yet another riCreator/DiCEntertainmentulously precarious location, Zack complains that having been 100 years since they left, you'd think they could have worked out the kinks by now.

* {{Expy}}: Russian ACME agent Tatiana bears an unmistakable resemblance to Russian [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Planeteer]] Linka. They also share the same voice actor: Creator/KathSoucie. (This is likely because DiC made the first two seasons of ''Captain Planet'' before it switched to Hanna-Barbera, as well as this show.)

In this series, BrotherSisterTeam Zack (Creator/ScottMenville) and Ivy (Creator/JenniferHale) tracks Carmen (Rita Moreno), who gradually becomes more and more of a FriendlyEnemy than she ever was in the computer games. ''Earth'' seems to be set in an AlternateContinuity in relation to the rest of the series, although Brøderbund did include some characters from it (Zack, Ivy, Stretch, and the Chief) in ''Carmen Sandiego: Junior Detective Edition''.

''Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?'' is a Saturday morning cartoon based on the ''Franchise/CarmenSandiego'' EdutainmentGame series. ''Where on Earth...'' ran on Creator/FoxKids in [[TheNineties the 1990s]]. It is ''not'' to be confused with the Creator/{{PBS}} GameShow by the similar name ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego''

** And in one episode, when Carmen and the detectives are engaged in an EnemyMine situation, Carmen expresses her distaste for the C5.

* EasilyForgiven: In "When It Rains", [[spoiler:Dr. Sara Bellum]] committed a series of violent and destructive crimes, disguised as Carmen, so that if her plans failed, Carmen would take the blame. In later episodes, we see her working ''with'' Carmen again, and no mention of her previous treachery is made.

* MagicCountdown: In "Follow My Footprints", Zack and Ivy have 60 seconds to catch Sara Bellum on the Moon, and if the Chief missed with the C5 they'd all be stuck there. As the mainframe is going into its final countdown, the Chief pops up to have a BigDamnHeroes moment which takes longer than the 5 seconds remaining.

* {{Not H|imself}}erself: Zack and Ivy wonder if Carmen has [[SanitySlippage lost her mind]] when some of her crimes border on pure destruction, especially with the theft of the Spruce Goose and torching the Amazon rainforest. They become even more suspicious with some of the clues they receive, saying it wasn't like Carmen to leave extremely easy clues. [[spoiler:It was actually Sara Bellum [[WigDressAccent impersonating]] Carmen, during the midst of a VillainousBreakdown.]]

* PunnyName: But of course; it wouldn't be V.I.L.E. otherwise. Sara Bellum, Ace Bandage, Claire E. and Cora Net, Paige Turner, Phill M. Critic, Al Loy, every one of Carmen's henchmen who wasn't a {{Faceless Goon|s}} had a job-specific name.

* SnapBack: Besides the fact that almost every episode or StoryArc is completely standalone, the CardboardPrison nature of the show goes [[UpToEleven even beyond Carmen herself]]. The writers never seem to keep track of who's been sent to jail and who evades capture, as various V.I.L.E. henchman are often seen alongside or mentioned to have done work for Carmen even if they were arrested in a previous episode. The most prominent example of this is [[spoiler:Sara Bellum]], who went full [[TheStarscream Starscream]] on Carmen in "When It Rains" and got captured at the end, and then is seen back in V.I.L.E. in "Follow My Footprints" as if nothing ever happened. [[spoiler:Lee Jordan]]'s breakout may be the only time they even attempted a HandWave at this.
