Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?[]

In Episode 30, Medeva is sent by Carmen Sandiego to the Southwestern states in the 1200s to steal the Navajo language, sending the Time Pilots on a chase through the history of Native Americans.

In Season 2, Episode 39, the Time Pilots meet a barber surgeon who carries around two leeches named Fred and Ethel for use in his bloodletting appointments. He then reveals that Holy Roman Emperor Friedrich II has decreed that all medical students who want to be doctors have to be taught in Salerno, Italy. His clues lead the Time Pilots to the 1200s, specifically 1231, when the authority of the Medical School of Salerno was sanctioned by Friedrich II.
