I remember watching "Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?" some as a kid- it's a fun series.
It mainly ran from 1994 to 1995, but there were sporadic episodes aired after that through 1999- with 40 episodes total.
I've never played the video games, but I know it originated as a PC game series in the '80s- an educational but fun game series that teaches geography while detectives track master criminal Carmen Sandiego all over the earth.
I have to say though- I think I liked the live action game show, "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" even better- but both are good. (The game show definitely has a much more memorable theme song, to me anyway.)
But it's all good- I used to have some of the book series by John Peel- those were really fun. And I had one of the Carmen Sandiego board games (I think it was either the "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" or "Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego?" game.)
