Trivia: Carmen Sandiego
  • Executive Meddling: The spin-off series like Word Detective and Math Detective only really took off when a complex series of transactions brought Carmen Sandiego to a new owner.note 
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In the Fox series, Carmen was voiced by Rita Moreno.
  • History Marches On: When Where in Time/Great Chase was released, the manual states Mona the model in the Leonardo da Vinci mission was a fictional character and the inspiration for the painting, let alone whether or not Leonardo actually used a model for the creation of the Mona Lisa, was (at the time) unknown. In 2005, it was discovered that the Mona Lisa depicts Lisa del Giocondo, meaning the game was actually right to depict her as a real person. Of course, the depiction of her as a surly model posing for Leonardo is still completely fanciful, especially considering he spent years working on it.
  • No Export for You: There was a Nintendo DS game named Mais où se cache Carmen Sandiego? Mystère au bout du monde.translation  It was released in Europe and Australia in 2009, and even though the ESRB had rated the game (and subsequently yanked said rating when it got accidentally leaked), it never got an American release. Considering the less than favorable reviews the game got, like this one, it may have been a blessing in disguise.
  • What Could Have Been: There were rumors of Sandra Bullock starring in a potential Carmen Sandiego movie around the late 1990s.
