  1. So Brøderbund Software (owner of Carmen Sandiego) and Soft Key (a Canadian CD collection manufacturer) were bidding on The Learning Company (which owned MECC, creators of The Oregon Trail). Soft Key won and changed its name to The Learning Company Inc. (the original had no "Inc."). This happened in 1995. In 1998, The Learning Company Inc. acquired Brøderbund. In 1999, Mattel acquired The Learning Company, but they lost money, probably from making too many Carmen Sandiego spin-off titles. Then it was sold again to a new owner...
  2. Translation: Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? Mystery at the End of the World
