Did you pull an Inception on me? I used to watch both the Carmen Sandiego cartoon and the Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century cartoon, which were both done by DiC in the same art style, and once thought, "Hmm, you know, it'd be cool to see some crossover with Holmes vs. Carmen." :D

But, man, these two are such masters at their work, I think it'd be a draw. I don't know how, but it would. :P

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Don't forget that the world of the Carmen Sandiego cartoon was inside a video game, which the main characters were of aware of and their actions were controlled by a real human player. And the Sherlock Holmes cartoon was only shown to be just a regular cartoon world. ;)

Still, though, I'd say any kind of match between these two would be a draw. Now throw Moriarty into the mix and we got something really intriguing. 8-)

Only one problem... Sherlock Holmes is NOT the world's greatest detective. He's number 2.

The title of World's Greatest Detective goes to someone who's such a great detective, one of his enemies calls him 'Detective' simply out of respect...

The World's Greatest Detective is Batman!

Save for an episode of The Brave and the Bold in which Batman teamed up with and referred to Holmes as "the world's greatest detective" (this was honestly a good episode, as surprising as that may sound when talking about that show :P ). ;)

But according to Chip Chase the worlds greatest detective is Teletraan-1!!!! At least that is what he says in one of G1's first season shows when they are looking for the space bridge the cons built (think it might be "Divide and Conquer") haha
The coward desires revenge but being afraid to die, he looks to others, maybe to the government of the day, to do the work of defense for him.

Oh, man! I'll take Brave And The Bold over Teen Titans any day. :lol: :P
Justice League = Awesome +1 :grin:

I don't know enough about either topic characters to give an informed comment. But, I'd like to think Carmen San Diego would come out of this the better. ;) :P
