Why It Rocks
- Like with the Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? games and Game Show, this series teaches people about different locations around the world in a fun matter.
- The show also has educational facts about an object or place.
- Due to this, it is very faithful to the games.
- Had elements that made the series appeal to both kids and adults.
- Likeable Characters.
- Zak is skilled with computers and knows a lot of different languages, while Ivy knows how to put on a good fight with Carmen's henchman. They even show some signs of sibling love and sibling rivally as well.
- Carmen Sandiego herself is a very unique villain - she doesn't harm anyone in her path or steal items for the money, she only does it to give ACME Agents (Zak and Ivy) a good challenge and even create facinating things like giant chessboard, even at times helping the two dispite their differences. She even has a very interesting backstory which isn't shown in the games.
- The Chief provides very funny laughs.
- Good animation for DIC-quality standards.
- Well-written episodes, even including some awesome multi-episode stories.
- Well done voice acting.
- There are also very cool villains who aren't affiliated with V.I.L.E. have also appeared, like Dr. Gunnar Maelstrom from the three episode "Retribution" story arc.
- By Season 2, Carmen becomes more anti-heroic, which can get a bit overcomplicated.
