Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 29 is the twenty-ninth episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Sir Vile steals Oliver Evans' mill from Delaware in the mid-1780's.

After a Data Boost at the time of the crime, Kevin and the time pilots get a message from the Timenet Street Entertainers who give clues directing them to Highland Park, Michigan in 1913, when Henry Ford built a car factory.

After Global Pursuit through the decade between 1910 and 1920, Kevin and the pilots meet a 'sit-down' striker from General Motors, who gives clues directing them to 1937, where Sir Vile zaps their 'fact fuel'.

Following clues from Sir Vile, Kevin and the pilots follow him to the US in the 1980s, when robots on auto assembly lines malfunctioned, and they retrieve Oliver Evans' Mill.

Ali captures Sir Vile, but she ran the wrong way heading for the last portal that cost her valuable time to answer the final question allowing Carmen to escape.
