Shakespeare in Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?—Part Two

“Cupid Sandiego.” By Diane M. Fresco. Perf. Rita Moreno, Rodger Bumpass, Jennifer Hale, and Scott Menville Dir. Stan Phillips. Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego? Season 4, episode 7. FOX. 12 December 1996 (?). DVD. Mill Creek Entertainment, 2012.

Toward the end of its run, the Saturday morning cartoon show Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego returned to a Shakespearean theme with this episode. In it, the detectives learn that Carmen is about to steal a balcony—but they have to deduce which of three famous balconies she's after.

Guess which one it turns out to be!

I can't remember the last time I saw a Carmen Sandiego cartoon. I remember they use to be really fun to watch as well as a ton of other shows back then. I miss those days.
