If you are in your late twenties to early thirties you may remember a learning show –Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? In fact as I write this article, I can hear the theme song. Funny right?

 

So as I thought long and hard about what to post today I thought I’d take it way back,  when I was in grade school and I couldn’t wait to get home to tune into this program. And not to mention that the show had returned in 2011, the brand has multiplied in its vast reaches to youngsters around the globe, and still maintains its unique quality of showing children the basics of geography.

I remember how vividly entertaining the show had been. How enthralled I would be that the thought of sitting through commercials angered me back then, because I just wanted to know where Carmen was, and if I was smart enough to figure it out.

I didn’t know back then that the franchise had spread out and explored different venues: from Where in the world to where in the USA, Where in Europe, Where in Time, Where in space, Where in Word, where in Math and many more. The brand also extended itself into comics and books, Card games and Board games, and as of July 2012 Jennifer Lopez was said to potentially star in the title movie based on the character.

Its amazing what can happen with a pencil and a dream, this character was just some lonesome thought at one point, brandished to life by a score of children’s love and adoration. And finally it has peeked into something substantial.

Intriguingly enough, you can follow Carmen Sandiego on Twitter, facebook, and even purchase the game if you have a Wii console!
