The character debuted in 1985 in the educational mystery video game "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?," created by Brøderbund Software. An animated TV series starring Lynne Thigpe as Carmen Sandiego ran for 295 episodes across five seasons on PBS from September 30, 1991 to December 22, 1995, with reruns airing until October 4, 1996. The TV series received the George Foster Peabody Award in 1993. In 2001, TV Guide ranked the show at #47 on its list of 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time.

A film adaptation was in the works as of 2012 with Jennifer Lopez attached as an executive producer.
