The 1710s is the second decade of the 18th century. During this time, what is now the United States was twelve colonies under the rule of England, then undergoing a change of dynasties. France's Louis XIV was no more, and Russian Czar Peter the Great Westernized his empire. And out on the Atlantic Ocean, the infamous English pirate Blackbeard terrorized French merchant ships before his own death at the hands of the Royal Navy.

Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?[]

In Season 2, Episode 3, the Chronoskimmer's doors open prematurely, so Kevin calls Fumbles McWhoops, who is more interested in showing off her new invention and explaining about 12-year-old Benjamin Franklin's apprenticeship to a printer in Colonial days. This leads the Time Pilots to time-warp the 1710s, specifically 1718.
