From 1991 to 1995 Lynne Thigpen was the chief of police on a game show all about hunting down one of the most notorious, and mysterious, criminals known to mankind, Carmen Sandiego. Few ever glimpsed the master thief let alone knew where she was at any given moment. Luckily kids just like you were given opportunities based on their knowledge of geography. If gumshoes were lucky enough they would hunt down that days crook and get a shot on the big cheese herself, Ms. Sandiego.
Years later something seems to be brewing with Carmen once again according to PBS's official tumblr page. After posting an image of Carmen's traditional large brimmed red hat and long gloves wondering "where in the world did this come from?". Eventually an update would go on to say that new episodes weren't coming (a huge bummer) but something was coming a "90's kid" would love.
Later on the Carmen Sandiego twitter account, yes this actually exists, asked if anyone would watch the old reruns of the show. While I'm not overly excited to watch 90's kids miss super easy geography questions I also won't pass up the chance to watch The Chief in action once again.
