Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 35 is the thirty-fifth episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Sir Vile steals the arches of the Colosseum from Ancient Rome in the 1st century AD.

Following a Global Pursuit in the 1st and 2nd centuries, Sir Vile taunts the Time Pilots, giving them clues that lead them to Agra, India, in the year 1649, when the Taj Mahal was completed.

After a Data Boost to replenish their 'fact fuel,' the time pilots view a Time Net weather report, in which they learn about the liberation of Paris by the Arc de Triomphe in 1944. There, Sir Vile zaps their 'fact fuel.'

After another Data Boost, the time pilots meet a tourist from the 1960s, who wants to be the 1,000,000th visitor to the St. Louis Gateway Arch. Once they travel to the 1960s, the time pilots retrieve the Colosseum arches.

Kevin Edwards captures Sir Vile and Carmen.
