Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 31 is the thirty-first episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Dr. Belljar steals the spinning wheel from India in the year 800.

After a Data Boost at the time of the crime, the time pilots meet up with James Hargraves, who invented the Spinning Jenny in 1768. There, Dr. Belljar zaps their 'fact fuel.'

Afterwards, Dr. Belljar taunts the time pilots about the Bon Marché, a clue that leads them to France in the 1850s. There, they give Global Pursuit.

Following the Global Pursuit, Kevin runs out of clues, so he contacts Omniscia, whose clues relating to Kevlar vests lead the time pilots to the year 1975, where they reclaim the spinning wheel.

Jordy captures Dr. Belljar and Carmen.
