Gumshoe Contestants

Based on the computer game of the same name, Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?, is a children’s game show that aired in the early 90s. The contestants, referred to as “gumshoes” by the Chief, must help ACME find Carmen by answering questions about geography.

Carmen Sandiego

Carmen Sandiego is a world-class cat thief and head of the criminal organization VILE. She’s able to elude the ACME detective agency as they chase her all over the globe, and teach kids some geography along the way. Unfortunately she rarely stays in San Diego — that would make things too obvious.
