Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 19 is the nineteenth episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Baron Wasteland steals the garbage-eating pigs from New York City in 1816.

After a Data Boost at the time of the crime, the time pilots get a message from Millennia, who recalls how Nabisco packed their Uneeda biscuits in airtight packages, which clues them into the year 1898. There, they give Global Pursuit in the early 1900s.

Afterwards, Baron Wasteland taunts the time pilots about a sanitation workers' strike approved by Martin Luther King, Jr., which leads them to Memphis in the year 1968, where the Baron zaps their 'fact fuel.'

Following another Data Boost, the time pilots meet Recyclo-Man, who informs them of the Earthship Community in Taos. This leads them to New Mexico in 1994, where they retrieve the pigs.

James captures Baron Wasteland, but Carmen escapes.
