PBS is hinting at a return of its 1990s hit game show "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" But don't get too excited -- we won't be getting any new episodes of the show that gave us Rockapella and that amazing Joe Biden cameo.
PBS's official Tumblr posted a photo of Sandiego's trademark hat and gloves with the message: "Where in the world did this come from? Stay tuned for something awesome!" That was followed up with a clue: "This is not about new episodes, but will be appreciated by any 90s kid. Stay tuned!"
Calls to PBS and Rockapella for comment were not immediately returned, though Rockapella commented on the news on the group's official website: "So ... THIS is interesting. Stay tuned, indeed. We don't know either ... but it's not new episodes."
The game show, based on the popular computer games, quizzed kids on geography while they tried to catch Sandiego and her gang of world landmark-stealing criminals, often accompanied by the mellifulous tones of acapella group Rockapella. And, once, by then-Senator Joe Biden.
