Thank you very much for putting your time into producing one of the most enjoyable PBS shows of all time, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, PBS's longest-running game show from 1991 to 1995, is a classic 1990's show. It was not only entertaining with Rockapella, Greg Lee, and the late, great Lynne Thigpen, but it was also educational in a fantastic manner. This show turned out to be brilliant in its techniques. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? touched not only young children, but also older children and adults. Fans of all ages would absolutely love to see all episodes of this classic game show released on DVD. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? never got an official DVD release. Plus, reruns have not been show on television since 1996. Despite its geographical accuracy in that time period, this show deserves to be seen again in its fullest quality. It would not be too much to ask if each season can be released separately. Should a game show that was entertaining and educational at the same time deserve to bring back the great memories? PBS's current programming is not as great as the programming from the past three decades. The 80s scientific 3-2-1 Contact made science super to enjoy. Square One TV taught math in a groovy fashion with its music videos, Mathnet, Mathman, game show parodies, and other creative sketches. The Electric Company from the 70s and the old days of Sesame Street were ancient and groovy, which led to the two classics' DVD box sets. In the 90s, Wishbone brought real literature to life for all children, young or old. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? not only made geography entertaining, but it also became one of the first shows with a truly unbiased, multicultural approach to diverse people, places, and objects. PBS's current programming is shifted towards much younger children and leaves older kids with nothing. If we are to have nothing, then at least we can have this: all episodes of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? on DVD. We fans believe it is now time for this classic show to be seen again. Due to its popularity, the DVD release of all the episodes would be an amazing, marketable product and will bring smiles to all fans. Please take this into consideration. Thank you very much again.
