Carmen Sandiego is back on DVD to teach us about world geography, landmarks and maybe steal some loot while she's at it. Check out Kidzworld's review of Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego.

In an international poll, Americans scored second to last in geographic knowledge, trailing behind Canada, France, Germany, the UK, Italy, Japan and Sweden. Thankfully, Carmen Sandiego is back to help America pick up the slack (and pick up a map!).

Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego - DVD Review

Okay, no one other than your mom wants to hear the word "educational" thrown around in a DVD review, but Carmen Sandiego actually manages to pull off the educational/entertaining combo. The DVD features all sort of cool extras like original storyboarding and original art galleries. Distressingly catchy theme song aside, this is a DVD you'll watch over and over. So should you buy it? Do it, Rockapella!
