Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 15 is the fifteenth episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Jacqueline Hyde steals the woven sails from Ancient Egypt around the year 3000 BC.

After a Data Boost at the time of the crime, the time pilots overhear Jacqueline Hyde telling Carmen about the controversial reputation of Christopher Columbus, who returned to Spain from the Bahamas in the year 1493. Once the time pilots reach 1493, Jacqueline Hyde zaps their 'fact fuel,' necessitating another Data Boost.

Afterwards, the time pilots meet Louis-Sebastien Lenormand, who drops into the Chronoskimmer via parachute when the front door isn't working. His clues lead them to France in the year 1783, where they follow Jacqueline Hyde in a Global Pursuit.

Finally, the Unknown Explorer leaves clues about windsurfing that lead the time pilots to California in the year 1968, the same year the Beatles movie Yellow Submarine came out. There, they reclaim the sails from Jacqueline Hyde.

Tim captures Jacqueline Hyde, but Carmen escapes.
