    Trivia (10)

    • This episode bears many similarities with the 1993 blockbuster movie Jurassic Park directed by Steven Spielberg, staring Sam Neil, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough.

    • Although Carmen is a thief, at the beginning of the episode she does not steal the toy. Instead, she pays for it.

    • Destinations: Hollywood, California to Cairo, Egypt to Kyoto and Mt. Fuji Japan, and to North Ireland.

    • When Zack , Ivy and Suhara go into the building in the tea gardens, their shoes vanish.

    • While dressed as Carmen Sandiego, Ivy's legs are exposed (and exact duplicates of Carmen's distinctively shapely "gams"), yet as she quickly discards the costume, they're fully sheathed in her usual pants. Now, unless she tied them about her waist under that trenchcoat and stopped to slip them on as Carmen revealed herself...

    • The Chief pulls his robot body out of storage and transfers his AI back into it to help out Zack and Ivy... and finds it's still as useless as the day he was brought online.

    • Lee Jordan, from Boyhood's End Parts 1 & 2, returns in this episode (coincidentally, also a two-parter).

    • After doing the math of the fire at Carmen's house, which happened 30 years ago, and the orphanage takes her in at age two, we find Carmen's age to be around 32.

  • Legendary thief Carmen Sandiego is set up against two detectives, Zack and Ivy. Similar to the video game of the same name, this show uses animation to make history interesting to kids.
