1 When it became Time. No Rockapella, no Greg Lee, the segments with the Chief were prerecorded, the budget was cut, the bonus round was impossible, and the charm all but vanished. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 10, 2010, 3:53 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 When they did Time. I don't think it was bad but not as enjoyable or rememberable as World. I think also the show was starting to get tired and people were not watching anymore. -- Submitted By: (Ani) on April 17, 2010, 10:57 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I loved this show, too. The theme song was catchy and always got stuck in my head. Do it, Rockapella! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 17, 2010, 10:56 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 Best Carmen Sandiego show ever. It was fun and actually challenging in a way that no other kid's game show really exhibited. -- Submitted By: (SamuraiPanda201) on July 31, 2009, 4:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
