Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?[]

In Episode 62, Baron Wasteland taunts the Time Pilots mercilessly by stating that he's in a country that recently had a Communist revolution. Its new leader, Mao Zedong, has encouraged his people to ride bicycles, or "self-running carts," as they are called locally. The Time Pilots soon figure out that they need to be in China in the year 1949. Once there, they play a game of Global Pursuit, whereupon they learn that, in 1949, Germany was just starting to export Volkswagen cars to the U.S., the new Citroen cars were being marketed in France, Fausto Coppi of Italy won that year's Tour de France bike race, the Saab company was founded in Sweden, and a Japanese man named Honda began building motorcycles two years before.
