Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 108 is the forty-third episode of the second season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Buggs Zapper steals the Magna Carta from England in the year 1215.

At the time of the crime, Kevin and the time pilots meet Button Gwinnett, who directs them to the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. There, they play Global Pursuit with Buggs Zapper.

After some Global Pursuit in the 1700s, Buggs breaks into the Chronoskimmer and foolishly gives the time pilots clues directing them to the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848. There, Buggs blasts the Chronoskimmer's engine with his flit gun, resulting in the Time Pilots requiring a Data Boost.

In another dimension, the evil Kevin and Chief seek out the 'good' Carmen at the United Nations in 1989, when it adopted the convention on the Right of the Child. In our world, Buggs is there, and the pilots recover the Magna Carta.

Jacob captures Buggs, but Carmen escapes because he missed two questions coupled with running past the fifth portal.

This episode marks the last time a time pilot captured Buggs Zapper but Carmen fled.
