Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 33 is the thirty-third episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Baron Wasteland steals the World's Columbian Exposition from Chicago, Illinois, in the year 1893.

Following a Data Boost at the time of the crime, Kevin and the Time pilots meet a patron of the 1939 New York World's Fair who directs them to Baron Wasteland.

In 1939, the Baron zaps the 'fact fuel,' requiring another Data Boost. He later gives Kevin and the pilots clues directing them to the grand opening of Disneyland in 1955, where they give Global Pursuit.

After contacting Omnicia, Kevin and the pilots find Baron Wasteland at the opening of Back to the Future: the Ride in 1993, the same year Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List was released. There, they retrieve the World's Columbian Exposition.

Lauren captures Baron Wasteland, but Carmen escapes as Lauren arrived at the fifth time portal after missing four questions in a row.
