"Earlier this year Shout! Factory released The Electric Company on DVD in a best of format. They continue to bring educational young adult programming to DVD with the release of Where On Earth Is Carmen San Diego?.

"Finally! While this series wasn't perfect, I have to admit that it led to my interest (and college degrees) in Anthropology and International Relations. It won't make your kid a geographic wiz but might pique his/her interest where dusty artifacts and flag memorization won't. As an adult some of the educational facts seem simplistic now, but I still appreciate that they attempted to have people speak in the language of the country visited. It had characters that were intriguing (Carmen especially), and most of the plots were good too. I was a big big fan of the show when I was a teenager, and hope they come out with the other seasons. (Though I noticed some of the worst episodes from Season 4 were already released, leading not surprisingly to at least 1 bad review). Seasons 2 and 3 were, I think, the best, so I hope they get released too.
Note: Some facts may no longer be valid at this point in time, like the names of world leaders who were current at the time. But most of the information has a historic basis."
FINALLY! My favorite animated series is on DVD!

"I can't even do this justice with this review but I am absolutely thrilled that the long long wait for this to arrive on DVD is finally over! WOEICS is my favorite animated series of all time, occasionally even better than the X-Men animated series that was popular around the same time as this.

ACME detectives Ivy and Zack work on cases where they are on a nearly perpetual mission to apprehend and catch the 'uncatchable' criminal thief Carmen Sandiego. Together they must decipher the clues that she leaves behind in order for them to solve and recover stolen items especially of historic landmarks.

This series is very educational for younger TV goers especially kids and teenagers and yet even for adults like myself as I was just entering adolescence when this series premiered in early 1994.

Although catering to younger audiences, I am suprised that grandparents have found this to be very entertaining as many older people I know have actually told me that they loved this show. It goes to show how diverse it's fans really are.

As of writing this review, animated TV series have declined back into banal garbage lacking any good character development and no innovation. WOEICS pushed the limits in animation and stands as a landmark series of the 1990s.

This DVD is of the first season of the series and is highly recommended for all CS fans out there, wherever they are!"
Works great for a classroom!

"I am a 6th grade Geography teacher and this product has been great in helping my students with Geography. The episodes are only about 25 minutes each. The students always look forward to watching! :)"
