“Where in the world is Carmen Sandiegoooo?” Whether you listened to the theme song from the 1994 original cartoon series or the incredibly boppy opening titles of Netflix’s new incarnation, it’s an earworm that will burrow its way as deep into your brain as the titular fedora-wearing character it’s referencing. Carmen Sandiego taught a legion of children about history, geography, math, and that stealing could be really cool if you wore a slick outfit.
Based on the character from the popular game show, Carmen Sandiego (voiced by Gina Rodriguez), is a teenage girl without a past. Abandoned on a remote island, all that she knows is she was born in Argentina and was left with a pair of Russian nesting dolls. The island she lives on is known as the Isle of V.I.L.E., a secret alcove for a group of super-thieves who steal the best of the best. When Carmen discovers V.I.L.E’s true intentions, she turns into a Robin Hood-esque figure who only steals from the nefarious organization with help from her savvy sidekicks..
