Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 34 is the thirty-fourth episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Baron Wasteland steals the internal combustion engine from Germany in the year 1876.

After a Data Boost at the time of the crime, Kevin and the time pilots meet up with a happy common man who is driving a Ford Model T, and whose clues lead them to the year 1913. There, Baron Wasteland zaps their 'fact fuel.'

Following another Data Boost, Kevin and the time pilots get some clues from the Elephant Guy, who directs them to the year 1956, when the Federal Aid Highway Act was passed, and where they play Global Pursuit in the late 1950s.

After getting some clues from Baron Wasteland, who is complaining about minivans, the time pilots go to the early 1980s, where they take back the engine.

Crystal captures Baron Wasteland, but Carmen escapes.
