Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?[]

In Episode 1, the Time Pilots meet a flapper (played by Lynne Thigpen) who tries to hide her mouth behind her hand after having read some Listerine advertisements that "you simply cannot know if you have [halitosis]". The clues she gives lead the Time Pilots to the 1920s, specifically 1922.

In Episode 32, the Time Pilots end up in the 1920s while they are trying to reach the 1930s. This is because Medeva has lured them into a game of Global Pursuit through the 1920s.

In Season 2, Episode 38, the Time Pilots meet an excitable motorist who is eager to try out the newly constructed Route 66. The clues he gives lead the Time Pilots to the 1920s, specifically 1926, when Route 66 was opened.
