* 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.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Despite being an educational show, the time travel arcs tended to be a little loose on the implications of Carmen's thefts of historical objects before they impacted history. For example, stealing the horseshoe from Paul Revere's horse would probably not have changed the course of the Battle of Lexington - there were multiple riders sounding the alarm, and Revere was one of the riders who ''failed'' to make it to their ultimate destination, anyway.

* ThrowTheDogABone: Whenever Carmen [[VillainExitStageLeft escapes custody]], it's usually due to a hidden gadget or an oversight on Zack or Ivy's part. But on two occasions, "Curses, Foiled Again" and "Can You Ever Go Home Again?", they are able to successfully arrest Carmen without her slipping through their fingers. While she does escape later on in both instances, neither one is on Zack or Ivy's watch, meaning they have technically succeeded in catching Carmen twice.

->"Is there ''no one'' who can catch Carmen Sandiego?"

''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 1990s]]. It is ''not'' to be confused with the Creator/{{PBS}} GameShow by the similar name ''Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego''.

In this series, BrotherSisterTeam Zack (Creator/ScottMenville) and Ivy (Creator/JenniferHale) tracks Carmen (Rita Moreno), who gradually became more and more of 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''.
