I will keep this short and sweet--

The series is just how I remember it, engaging, fun and a whole heap of facts and trivia. It was thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining for both my students and my friends. IT IS WELL WORTH THE $11.49!!

The only downside is the DVD quality: Its a little below average, but for twelve bucks I wouldn't complain.

(If you do watch the series for nostalgic reasons with friends, try this drinking game: Whenever Zack screams "IIIVVVVYYYYYYY" while falling; take a drink.)

PRO:
Full series (all 40 episodes)
Engaging
Educational without being blatantly educational

CONS:
DVD Quality is low
DVD Packaging is terrible (Paper Sleeves inside a DVD case)

I played this game once and loved it. I did not know that this version was only a video and not a game. Probably won't watch it too much but I like the geographical locations Carmen goes to. Educational.

I was kind of excited about watching this after a long time. Use to love it as a child. It's a good price & will bring u back......but (for me) its not something I can watch any longer (too childish & repetitive). I don't feel it has that lasting quality other shows had ie Power Rangers, ThunderCats, Cops, etc.
It's all right.

Good for Nostalgia Feb. 27 2012
By MoonLiteStar88 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I just got my copy in the mail today after a short delay of the release. I watched this series as child when it was still airing on FOX in the mid 90's and the show is still just as good as I remembered it. The show is very kid friendly and has a bit of an educational theme. Now let's get to the specs of this DVD.

Approx Runtime: 14hrs and 20 min
Aspect Ratio: 4:3/1:33:1
All 40 episodes on 4 DVD's

The image quality is a bit of a disappointment since they crammed 10 episodes per DVD as well as some bonus features. That said, when I play this on my computer, my DVD fan will run very high because so much space was used on the DVD's. In my opinion, it would've been a lot better if they released this on Blu-Ray. As we all know, Blu-Ray DVD's can hold a lot more space than regular DVD's. Personally, I gladly would have forked over $50 for the complete set (as long as it's in airdate order and uncut) on Blu-Ray either that or they should have put them on more DVD's but I suppose this release will do for now.

The packaging is pretty piss poor. The DVD's come in 4 paper sleeves and a single DVD case. Whoever thought that was a great idea to hold DVD's that way should be fired. This puts the DVD's at risk for scratching and plenty of finger prints. Whatever happened to the days when companies released complete series in actual box sets or thinpak releases?

Unfortunately, this is not in the original airdate order. Is it really that hard to put all the episodes in the correct airdate order? I know I'm just nitpicking but I want to watch the series the same way as it was airing in the 90's. On the plus side, the openings and endings are included on every episode. Overall, this is a decent release and worth picking up for the nostalgia. Hopefully one day, another company will give the series a proper release in the future.

5 stars for the series 1 star for the release.

By NBB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As a homeschooler, Im always trying to find something my daughters can watch while I finish cleaning the kitchens breakfast catastrophe. This oldy but a goody is a great find for those that want something old school, clean, and educational. I used to have the game but I cant find it so I'll have to purchase it again when they get old enough! Enjoy these wholesome shows...they dont make them like this anymore!

Carmen Will Steal Your Heart....Again Sept. 1 2012
By Ben C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you happen to be a child of the 1990's, you probably watched "Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?" on Fox Saturday Mornings or Fox/ABC Family.

A fun fact is this show came into creation from the Children's Television Act that wanted more educational programming for kids. The entire series run is included on these four discs and to be fair, almost all of them are in pretty good condition. (Only true issue is with the audio for "By A Whisker" but is minor at best)

The show stars ACME detectives Zach and Ivy as they tail Carmen Sandiego across the world attempting to catch her. There are plenty of twists and turns along the way including Carmen teaming up with them to foil criminals not as classy as herself.

Plenty of talented voice actors adorn this series including Scott Menville as Zac, Rodger Bumpass as "The Chief", Jennifer Hale as Ivy, and the timeless Rita Moreno as Carmen Sandiego. It is one of those series that stands the test of time and while giving you a history lesson, it doesn't throw it in your face.

My only issue is that the series was sadly cancelled before its time and never truly had the ending that it deserved. The best part of the entire deal here on Amazon is that you get nearly 15 hours of video for less than $10 dollars and since it is the entire series run, that can't be under sold. You can find most of the episodes on the Internet but no one truly has the full run of episodes.

What are you waiting for, "Buy it now!"

Fun and Educational Dec 24 2012
By Amy - Published on Amazon.com

My six year old and my four year old love the video. It is not only fun but educational so I do not feel so bad about them watching it for more than 30 minutes. Each episode gives a good lead into discussions into history and geography.

Carmen Sandiego's Still the Best Ever. June 18 2013
By Ready Writer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This show is as good as I remember it, and, being that I grew up on the original computer games, the game shows, and this cartoon, that's amazing to have as much fun and joy as an adult as I did when I was a child. Full of fun facts, edge of your seat action, and family values, it is something that all parents can watch with their children of any age, and have no regrets, or worries, about, whatsoever. I highly recommend it to any and all that like good family shows, and good, fun, action packed shows.
