Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 60 is the sixtieth episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?. It was taped on August 2, 1996, and first aired on December 27, 1996.


Jacqueline Hyde steals the machine to make barbed wire from Dekalb, Illinois, in the year 1874.

At the time of the crime, the time pilots replenish their 'fact fuel' with a Data Boost. Afterwards, the time pilots meet up with a British soldier from World War I, when barbed wire was used to reinforce the trenches. From these clues, they are led to the year 1916. There, Jacqueline Hyde neutralizes the 'fact fuel', resulting in another Data Boost.

The time pilots run out of clues, so Kevin and the Chief contact Omniscia, who gives them clues to the 1960s, when barbed wire collectors swapped and sold their samples in La Crosse, Kansas.

Following a Global Pursuit in the year 1965, Jacqueline Hyde tells the time pilots about the Berlin Wall, which was reinforced by barbed wire. These clues lead them to Berlin in the year 1989, where they take back the barbed-wire machine and return it to 1874.

Andrew captures Jacqueline Hyde and Carmen with 15 seconds to spare.
