The characterization here of Carmen not simply being a villainess, of her actually having a backstory and some honor, was really cool. The voices for Zack and Ivy are familiar and cool too, but Lynn was still the better chief. Along with City Guys, one of the last after school specials I watched that was educational.
This show was (and to a certain extent, still is) one of my favorite shows. When my mom bought a few of the video tapes for me, I found this show funny and educational. The facts were informative at the tender age of five , and Zack and Ivy's squabbles were reminiscent of my own minor squabbles with my brother. The facts are interesting yet not preechy, and the animation is colorful and good. Overall, this show is great for anyone who wants their child to learn something while trying to figure out the case along the way, or someone who just wants to watch something to remind them of the simpler times.
I don't know if it was Carmen, or just the whole show which I loved so much... but it was somthing, and it has never come back to me, and I will always remember the Carmen Sandiego shows on TV and never find anything the same from my childhood. The cast and stories were amazing, and it was so cool! The animation wasnt that good, but it was good enough for a child. The stories are just so cool, and you always wanted to know what is going to happen next. Carmen would steal things that she didn't even want, and she, if mortal, couldn't even think of stealing. * COUGH* Mont-Ste-Michelle...
This is definitely one of those shows that was one of the greatest shows ever, because it combined action, mystery and a great way for us to learn something about other cultures and other countries, among other things. With Carmen Sandiego, the most notorious criminal and thief in the world, on the loose, it is up to the siblings, Ivy and Zack from ACME Detective Agency to find out what she is up to and try to capture her. The animation was very good and fluid, and the cast providing the voices of the characters has among it some of the best actors ever, such as Scott Menville and Jennifer Hale, among many others. Personally, a great show which should have continued for many more years. 10 out of 10!
Everything is superb about this show and I love the concept for this show and I love all of the characters my #1 favorite character is Carmen Sandiego. This show is very similar to Cyberchase it's also the same thing different concept but it my point of view Cyberchase & Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? they are very similar shows in a way. Their are games that is based on the same thing Carmen Sandiego and the great chase. The executional games Carmen Sandiego is made by TLC they did a superb job on all of the games so maby you should look it up on amazon.com.
