  1. I loved me some Carmen Sandiego growing up, both on computer and the PBS show. In our elementary school labs in the late 80s and early 90s we primarily had the Apple II green and black PCs and I played a ton of where in the World, USA and yes as a North Dakota resident I could say I was one of the few who played Where in North Dakota is Carmen Sandiego. As a naive kiddo I presumed they were making these games for every state and was surprised when our local paper ran an article a few years ago saying we were the only one who got one (https://www.inforum.com/entertainment/4082657-why-world-was-carmen-sandiego-north-dakota)

    I loved the TV show also and watched way too much of it! Favorite villain was Vic the Slick! Thank you for having so many awesome sound effects on hand from the show! I remember when the show was touring malls across the country and my dad drove me an hour to see them do a version of the game show at the mall. I absolutely ate it up! This episode brought back many memories of school and after school marathons of Sandiego and Ghost Writer.
