  • ME on January 26th, 2010 - 1:12pm

     

    The new Whit does kinda look like a lumber jack. What do you mean by “felt”?


  • ME on January 26th, 2010 - 1:20pm

     

    Odyssey rocks


  • I died on January 26th, 2010 - 2:53pm

     

    That was Great :-)
    love it, but these videos are taking to muck space on my computer, lower your resolution on your videos B)


  • Anonymous on January 26th, 2010 - 2:53pm

     

    um whats a lumber jack AND whens Connie getting married


  • Brock on January 26th, 2010 - 3:23pm

     

    Can’t wait to read your endorsements!


  • josh on January 26th, 2010 - 4:21pm

     

    cool! 8)


  • BRockY on January 26th, 2010 - 4:33pm

     

    I love the new whit and conny (although she dosen’t look right) wooton and eugene (looks like a super nerd) are horrible no new kids. I like cal, alex, mandy, The barclys, ryan cunnings, jill,, nelson, and alson. BRING BACK THE OLD ODYSSEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also I sort a liked the old passages cover.


  • MAtt on January 26th, 2010 - 4:38pm

     

    Wow all the new drawings of the characters are great! Good work Gary Locke. I really like Brock hosting the A.I.O.P {Adventures in Odyssey Podcast}, he did a great and funny job. Keep up the awesome work Odyssey!

    P.S. Do you think you could put the Bob and Jesse masks online to download?


  • Original joe on January 26th, 2010 - 5:39pm

     

    Me., they actually said “svelte,” which means thin.


  • Lovely on January 26th, 2010 - 6:01pm

     

    Connie looks awsome, and ya when is she getting married???PLEASE SOON!!!!!!!!!!!AND PLEASE MITCH!!!!!!!!


  • Grant on January 26th, 2010 - 6:08pm

     

    I’m not endorsing the Passeges series. I think that the consept of Whit and Jack wondering whether or not these stories are true is absurd.


  • meg on January 26th, 2010 - 6:20pm

     

    Wow Eugene, love the hair cut! Connie, you look realy pretty! Whit, you look polish up too!


  • Will on January 26th, 2010 - 6:28pm

     

    I WOULD love the new artwork, because it looks awesome.
    However, I wish it matched the old artwork. The only recognisable character is Whit.
    Anonymous: A lumber jack is a guy that chops down trees.
    I think the Bob and Jessie masks are funny. I know that Brock has something to do with Odyssey marketing, but who is Diane?


  • Will on January 26th, 2010 - 6:30pm

     

    Note: I am NOT Will Ryan, who plays Eugene, Officer Harley, Harlow Doyle, and Officer O’Ryan.


  • meg on January 26th, 2010 - 6:50pm

     

    Oh Brock, I knew it was you the hole time.


  • Ben on January 26th, 2010 - 7:13pm

     

    Not too sure who these two new hosts were, but I liked them. I was always a fan of the old artwork, until they began to give the characters a new look around when “Danger Signals” came out. But I must say, I actually really enjoy and prefer the new look of these characters. Whit looks greatly improved. They managed to make Eugene looks very different but you still kept him looking like his character. Connie looks good, too.

    But Mr. Parker looks like he could be Superman, though Great job, guys!


  • Beth on January 26th, 2010 - 7:26pm

     

    I love Connie’s new look! She sure looks pretty! I think Whit looks great as well.


  • alicia on January 26th, 2010 - 7:27pm

     

    when is Connie gonna get married?and to tell you the truth i don’t really like the new logo and is eugene really gonna be bald?UGH!i hope not.


  • please on January 26th, 2010 - 7:30pm

     

    can you get katie leigh to wright a comment on here?


  • JJ4455 on January 26th, 2010 - 7:58pm

     

    lov oddssey soooooooo much!!! I can listen to it for hours!! When Connie getting married? Will she marry Mitch? Will Eugene and Katrina have a baby?


  • WhitBlueJay on January 26th, 2010 - 8:02pm

     

    why isn’t katrina on any shows anyway? Sometimes i think eugene and katrina aren’t married at all? they should make a show abou them!


  • Anna on January 26th, 2010 - 8:28pm

     

    whit looks weird ha ha ha
    :) ;) <:) <;) mwaw haw haw haw


  • Christian on January 26th, 2010 - 9:04pm

     

    Connie looks much better! (So does Camilla!!!!)


  • Kari on January 26th, 2010 - 9:17pm

     

    Omy word!
    Connie looks stunning! Best makeover in
    history of Odyssey :)))
    Can’t wait to hear the new album =D


  • Julie on January 26th, 2010 - 9:19pm

     

    lol i love how everytime she says
    “I’m right behind you”
    she leaves the room 1st
    love the new podcast &
    love the new connie look


  • billy on January 26th, 2010 - 9:21pm

     

    Why Bob and Jessie! there’s something diffrent about you today!


  • jazmyne on January 26th, 2010 - 9:35pm

     

    yes that is what i have been waiting for every body wants connie and mitch to get married and of course name tne girl jazmyne that would be great


  • Chels! on January 26th, 2010 - 10:20pm

     

    Ok, AIO staff, the only reason I am not freaking out at all the changes, is that you guys have never steered us wrong before. So I’m trusting that changing Connie’s hair style and making Eugene look “nerdy cool”, is all going to work out for the best… :}
    (I did like the way Wooton looked though!)


  • Doll on January 26th, 2010 - 10:59pm

     

    That was AWESOME!!! thanx for the inside brock!! :)


  • Tim on January 27th, 2010 - 7:36am

     

    I do not like the new Connie! At least she isn’t wearing that green turtle neck sweater but they could have at least done a little bit better job than this in my opinion.


  • Tim on January 27th, 2010 - 7:37am

     

    I do like how Eugene looks without his hair covering his eyes. He sure looks like a computer type guy now! LOL! :)


  • meg on January 27th, 2010 - 11:40am

     

    It’s good to hear from you on the Odyssey podcast agan Brock! Nice to see you for the fist time Debby!Oh Bob, Jesse did Brock polish your shoes again?


  • idance4jesus on January 27th, 2010 - 1:30pm

     

    WOW! Connie Kendall looks SO CUTE! I completely LOVE her new look!
    She looks more mature & grown up! I never really did like her old look, it didn’t really fit her at all.
    Eugene has always looked good!! (in his own “Eugene” geeky way, of course!) :)


  • priscilla on January 27th, 2010 - 1:41pm

     

    I think the artwork was very good but I hate all the changes. Connie doesn’t look like herself and neither does Eugene nor Whit and I can’t say I like the new logo either. I know I’m complaining a lot but I don’t like all these changes.


  • dan on January 27th, 2010 - 1:42pm

     

    I know you can’t fit the new passeges into adventures in oddesey and darians rise was hard to fit in i don’t know why it was hard to fit in and darians real name is david :)


  • priscilla on January 27th, 2010 - 1:48pm

     

    Oh and another thing, I think Connie looks a bit too immodest I know it’s the style too wear tight pants, flats and cut your hair to look like Taylor Swift, but thats not like Connie at all.


  • Brock on January 27th, 2010 - 1:54pm

     

    Your comments are wonderful! Keep tuned in to the podcast!


  • franklin on January 27th, 2010 - 2:09pm

     

    I loved the podcast it was good.


  • Molly on January 27th, 2010 - 2:58pm

     

    I love how connie isn’t wearing that green, ugly turtleneck and green sweatpants thing anymore! Yay! I’m not the biggest fan of her clothes now either.. but anything is better than the green turtleneck! And i love the hair it is so cute! And the flats! She’s pretty much just the way i picture her :) Whit… hmm.. Well i like the old whit better. His face doesn’t look as kind or grandfatherly here imo. Wooton is pretty good. Eugene.. He looked different on the cover of 51. I like him beter there.


  • Molly on January 27th, 2010 - 3:00pm

     

    Also i think the passages covers are cool! I like both the new ones and the old ones! And thanks for keeping the podcast going! I love it! :D


  • Logan on January 27th, 2010 - 3:42pm

     

    Wow! Love the new looks of the characters! I also love the fact that there are a lot of video podcasts coming out right now. I hope you keep on releasing new video podcasts!


  • M In Co on January 27th, 2010 - 7:07pm

     

    I am verry sorry to say this, but I thought the new drawings did not portray the characters very well at all!! Whit looked way too young! Eugene has got to have red hair and the glasses! Eugene looked terrible in the new picture! And Connie, she totally doesn’t even have the personality her picture shows! I am very sorry Odessey, but I didn’t like the new pictures at all!!! They were not very good. You should keep the old ones!! those where totally better! I also agree with Priscilla.(3rd above)


  • Tatiana on January 28th, 2010 - 4:31am

     

    HOW MANY TIMES IS BROCK GONNA SNEAK IN & SHOW THINGS HE’S NOT SUPPOSED 2?!?!?!?


  • josh on January 28th, 2010 - 8:28am

     

    wow, I love all the new looks. I think they should’ve left Wooton anonymous. I really like Connies new look a lot it seems like FOREVER she was wearing that sweater :mrgreen:


  • odysseylover on January 28th, 2010 - 10:45am

     

    the only change I like is Connie. love her hair!! the others are just too different.


  • trent on January 28th, 2010 - 10:49am

     

    cool cool cool cool COO COOL


  • Deborah on January 28th, 2010 - 12:09pm

     

    Ok heres my opinion eugene has one improvement. the hair connie looks so much better and when are you going to add trent and jason to the characters list. whit does look kind awkward but it looks like he lost wieght! wooten looks, well, like wooten. i noticed somone said something about flats i object to the pants i agree there but flats look awesome i wear them alot!


  • Deborah on January 28th, 2010 - 12:12pm

     

    also did they tie up bob and jesse then pretended to be them to get the spotlight! just kidding but its funny though! ROFL


  • Whit fan on January 28th, 2010 - 12:20pm

     

    I am so glad you changed everything. I see the website is different and the new logo is there I like it even more when its orange like that. The people look real and not so impressionistic. I did not like any of the new album covers because the people that were drawn looked a little strange (no offense to the artist its not my type of art). Everything looks new and fresh, which is what I think the producers intended. You guys are doing a great job. Go whit!!!


  • Abbie on January 28th, 2010 - 1:08pm

     

    Ok, i didn’t exactly like the new eugene. He looks nothing like him! And connie….. her hair is an improvement, but her face and body…. I agree with molly about the new and old whit. I just kind a liked the old characters a LOT better. :E


  • Abbie on January 28th, 2010 - 1:14pm

     

    On top of cds, dvds, and more, there’s a person. who is he? he doesn’t look like wooton, even though the hair kind a resembles him. Who is he?


  • Lindsey s. on January 28th, 2010 - 1:32pm

     

    Part one
    I am not trying to be mean or unfeeling, however, as a fan, I have to be honest about all of the changes you have made. To sum up all of my feelings in one sentence, this would be it: I GREATLY DISLIKE ALL OF THE CHANGES!
    I do not like the new look of the characters. Whit and Eugene no longer even resemble the previous drawings and Connie looks like she’s 16, AGAIN. The new logo doesn’t have the same excitement and adventure like look to it anymore,…


  • Lindsey s. on January 28th, 2010 - 1:38pm

     

    Part Two
    …and I have heard that the theme is going to be changed.
    You have changed everything about Odyssey to a point that it is no longer Odyssey anymore. I can’t believe I am saying this, but ever since you have been making changes, I have not like Odyssey as much. To be honest, I feel like I have lost a dear and wonderful friend. I will always love and be a big fan of the first 50 albums of Odyssey, but after album 50, I will no longer love it. I will still check up on Odyssey now…


  • Lindsey s. on January 28th, 2010 - 1:43pm

     

    Part Three
    … and then, but I will not be as excited to listen to the new episodes. I guess what I am trying to say is, you have lost a fan of the new Odyssey, but not of the old. Like I said, I will always love and cherish the first 50 albums, but not the new albums. I wish you all the best in this journey of the new Adventures in Odyssey and I know the newer fans will love it.

    This is Lindsey S. signing out.


  • David on January 28th, 2010 - 1:53pm

     

    The new Eugene doesn’t look like the one they have on the cover of album 51 to me. And he has his old glasses on the cover of the album too!


  • Ally on January 28th, 2010 - 2:15pm

     

    They can’t bring back the old odysseys. They have to start again because everyone is growing up! I don’t know how I’m going to like all this new stuff, but I’m glad that they are keeping the odysseys coming. This podcast is pretty hillarious! Cheesey but I wouldn’t have it any other way.


  • Scott on January 28th, 2010 - 2:20pm

     

    I miss the old witt :( oh well cant wait fo rthe new season


  • Ally on January 28th, 2010 - 2:35pm

     

    Lindsey, changes are different and hard but it can’t be the same forever.


  • lindsey on January 28th, 2010 - 2:40pm

     

    connie looks awsome but i dont reallylike whits “new” look.


  • Anna on January 28th, 2010 - 2:55pm

     

    Wow, I actually love Connie! Though the picture you see in your mind when you listen to AIO will always be best, and it’s different for each person, so it’s hard for everyone to be satisfied with these drawings. I think Eugene looks older, which he should…but somehow I don’t like him as much, Whit neither. Oh well, you did a great job. :D
    And I second a comment above me, I want those masks available to download! ^.^


  • JAY JAY on January 28th, 2010 - 3:42pm

     

    So wat exactly is this?


  • Carle on January 28th, 2010 - 3:45pm

     

    I’m just upset that Dylan won’t be around amymore!


  • odyssey fans on January 28th, 2010 - 3:49pm

     

    We love the new LOOK!Nothing to say bad about any of it!!!


  • Lynn on January 28th, 2010 - 4:09pm

     

    Lovely and Annoynamus,

    What are the laws of a sixteen year old getting married? Connie is only sixteen! :o


  • reva on January 28th, 2010 - 4:10pm

     

    I totally miss the old artwork i didnt even recognize anyone i am none to be a drama queen but it just will never be the same. (dramatic sigh)


  • Abbie on January 28th, 2010 - 5:20pm

     

    Ally, i so agree with u!


  • A. on January 28th, 2010 - 5:46pm

     

    I like the new conniw look, but not Eugene’s.


  • franklin on January 28th, 2010 - 6:05pm

     

    Hi everyone,
    I loved the podcast, but Connie doesn’t look like herself any more. Whit looks hilarous but he looks a little bit like a butcher. I like Eugene a lot but I am sad you gave him eyes. I also love the Parker family. Wooton looks a bit too chubby. I also dislike how Brock and Diane snuck up and pretended to be Bob and Jesse.


  • franklin on January 28th, 2010 - 6:07pm

     

    I love all you podcasts ecspecially the ones where Bob shuts Jesse in the vault and when Brock takes over the show.


  • Priscilla on January 28th, 2010 - 6:32pm

     

    I love the Podcast, but all these changes are sickening, Whit, Connie and Eugene don’t look like themselves at all. Also the new logo isn’t the same. Oh, is that your new theme I really don’t like it. Sorry for all the complaints.


  • anna on January 28th, 2010 - 6:49pm

     

    I have loved AIO in the past and I will countinue to love it and you guys posting the other comments are being a bit harsh I mean you have to except change now but of the new characters I have to say I only like the way Mr. Parker looks but they might grow older and look differant. I realy cant wait for the new episode to come out and I am exited to hear it =) I love you Oddesy and I have a suggestoin if the charecters are changing why cant Odessy? Not bizzar, but just small maby a new building!


  • Grace on January 28th, 2010 - 6:57pm

     

    One word…AWESOME! At least now Connie ACTUALLY looks her age and Eugene got at least SOME interst in style! You’re awesome Odyssey!


  • amy on January 28th, 2010 - 7:07pm

     

    I like Connie’s new look! She’s more grown up in the show now, and her picture now matches that fact. I like Wooton’s new look too, but I don’t picture him in my head that way. And Whit is ok. I like the look of his face better in the old version of Whit though.
    Great new look on the web site with the new characters at the top of the web pages!
    ~Amy


  • B Gril on January 28th, 2010 - 7:43pm

     

    Lindnsey, I Know kind Of How You Feel I Mean The Only New Des. I Absolutley Love Is Connie She Looks So Pretty Now!


  • SArah on January 28th, 2010 - 7:56pm

     

    Connie is so pretty! and i love the new nerdy Eugene :) can’t wait to see more vests


  • kirstin on January 28th, 2010 - 8:05pm

     

    Okay, fine, the makeovers are fine, I can deal with changing Connie and Eugene. As for the other characters around, I have no idea who they are, and frankly I don’t care. I already have my own minds-eye pictures of all the characters. But… why change Whit? Fine, he got a new voice actor. I got over it. But he used to greet me when I came to the page. Now there’s this… different guy there.


  • christian A on January 28th, 2010 - 9:18pm

     

    A lot of people are talking negatively about what some call the “new” Odyssey (even though they haven’t even heard the new season yet.) But I want to let the good people who work with AIO know that I’m not giving up on AIO and I’m excited about the new season =)! AIO is awesome! I trust the Odyssey team and hope to one day become a part of it (as an actor.) It’ll take some time getting used to certain changes, but it’s like Wooten says, “Change can help you change and that can be a good thing.”


  • Whit on January 28th, 2010 - 11:56pm

     

    Brock, you are the best! I hope we see more from Brock in the future!
    As for the new characters, they look great! I especially love Eugene, since he’s my favorite character. Who doesn’t love a computer geek? :)


  • MARIAH on January 29th, 2010 - 5:52am

     

    I love the pictures! The new Connie is so cool, has a great haircut, and has great clothes. She looks so young! Whit and Eugene are so cool, and I love the fact that Eugene has a vest, so cool! Keep it up Adventures In Odyssey!


  • Brock on January 29th, 2010 - 6:55am

     

    What is up with all the changes going around in odyssey! I really do not like the new charcters looks and miss the old odyssey :(


  • Whit fan on January 29th, 2010 - 7:38am

     

    Part 1
    Lindsey S. you claim that you will not like the new adventures in Odyssey because of the new drawings and the new logo even though you have not even heard it yet. That does not make much sense. This is radio, and the only change to the sound of the show is Whit’s voice. You do not even see the drawings unless you look at the cover or the website. A true fan can adjust to changes in a show.


  • Whit fan on January 29th, 2010 - 7:46am

     

    I love the show, the have been many changes over the years but I still listen to it. The way a drawing looks does not effect the show. So Lindsey S. think about your priority’s here. I will not stop listening to the show because I might not like a drawing. Go Whit!!!


  • Tim on January 29th, 2010 - 7:55am

     

    Abbie, I was wondering who that might be as well. Could be that character named “Red” that the producers were talking about? They said that he was kind of a comedic character and the drawing looks like a hill-billy looking guy to me. Also, I totally agree with Priscilla about Connie looking imodest. To me it kind of looks like AIO is doing a double standard whenever they draw a character like that! However that is my only complaint with the new character drawings.


  • EX-fan on January 29th, 2010 - 9:07am

     

    I think the new art ruins odyssey. Skinny whit? That’s horrible.

    AIO is loosing it’s heart. It’s just another Hollywood production with references to God now.


  • SNOOK on January 29th, 2010 - 9:20am

     

    That was kinda silly, I’d suggest not doing that again. But other than that I love the new character designs (Connie Looks Awesome!!). Keep up the good work.


  • #1fan on January 29th, 2010 - 9:23am

     

    How is Connie imodest? I wear flats and jeans all the time!Conie’s hair is so cute! The old picture didn’t look like the connie i pictured in my mind. Now she does! Yay!
    Eugene looks a lot different and i’m not sure how to feel about that. Wooten on the other hand….Wow the best improvment yet! I liked the old whit better,but the new one still seems like Whit. It looks like connie is still making him eat healthy! L0L! Can’t wait to hear album 51!


  • James on January 29th, 2010 - 9:33am

     

    I love odyssey but I dont like the new voice of Whit, and the new look. The eugene and connie looks are much better though!


  • jojo on January 29th, 2010 - 10:51am

     

    Yay!
    The podcast keeps getting better!
    connie needed a new look! she looks trendy and ready to go! i LOVE her flats and jeans! her hair was perpetually in a ponytail, so it’s cool that she got a new cut!

    WOOTON! looks just like how i imagined him! he needs a power-boy comic sticking out of his bag though.

    Eugene! I like his vest! there’s diffrent things I like about the old and new, but overall, he is pretty cool.

    Whit! I can’t say I particulary like his hair-cut, but he looks


  • jojo on January 29th, 2010 - 10:57am

     

    like he trimmed down a bit. (the story behind that?)

    Mrs. Parker looks pretty and fun, and a GREAT MOM!

    Mr. Parker looks cool, but i think he’s a bit too tall.

    the kids:

    Cammilla:
    cute, confident, and energetic! i’de like to see her in other outfits too, though.

    Matthew:
    looks a bit shorter than Cammilla, (needs that changed.) but overall, looks like a cute little kid.

    Maria:
    she looks nice too!


  • jojo on January 29th, 2010 - 10:59am

     

    Punch line:
    overall, I like the changes because oddsey characters need to change and grow. Some people say that oddsey is changing too much, but that’s because we’re used to the drawings that are like 10 years old. so, give the new characters and albums A CHANCE!


  • jojo on January 29th, 2010 - 11:01am

     

    i LOVE AIO and i understand why people feel awkard at these changes, but we’ll get to know them well in time.

    GREAT JOB AS ALWAYS AIO!

    Ps.
    when are new characters going to be added?


  • jojo on January 29th, 2010 - 11:01am

     

    drawings of characters I mean.


  • ANGELA on January 29th, 2010 - 11:04am

     

    great job AIO! I love the new characters! The old ones were so old and repetitive! these are fresh and ready to go! I like the albums 1-50, but hey, they really needed fresh new characters and looks!

    Angela, you r so right!!! see my post…


  • TOM on January 29th, 2010 - 12:22pm

     

    Eugene’s hair doesn’t look red enough anymore!


  • aDASTRA Anne on January 29th, 2010 - 12:41pm

     

    Wow, the new Passeges covers look splendid. I do prefer the old Whit, but I’m sure I’ll grow to appreciate the new look more with time. While I think that the new Connie looks quite pretty, I have to say that I don’t really think it fits her. What I find funny is that Eugene looks almost exactly how I used to imagine him way back when. Wooton looks pretty much how I thought he would! I also noticed the new logo. I definatly prefered the old one, but I guess I just don’t take change that well.


  • jacob on January 29th, 2010 - 12:43pm

     

    Aw come on… I liked the old Eugene better! What does Katrina think about his makeover?


  • Beth on January 29th, 2010 - 12:51pm

     

    Whit is so skinny. He can go anywhere with the kids.
    You can see Eugene’s eyes! And he has a vest on!
    Connie looks so cute. I love it.

    I love AIO.


  • anon on January 29th, 2010 - 2:17pm

     

    I don’t really like the new artwork at all.


  • anon on January 29th, 2010 - 2:20pm

     

    I really liked the old artwork better. Connie doesn’t look like Connie any more and niether do Whit and Eugene. Wooton does look like a Wooton though.


  • Neil on January 29th, 2010 - 2:27pm

     

    I’m fine with the new Whit, Connie and Wooton, but Eugene with a haircut? What do the guys at Odyssey think they are doing?!! One of the great things of Eugine’s design is the fact that his hair covered his eyes! It made him, so, Eugene! Bring back the old one!


  • jed on January 29th, 2010 - 2:38pm

     

    i realy like all the new drawings except whit me and my sister are some of your bigest fans keep making odysseys and God bless


  • jed on January 29th, 2010 - 2:53pm

     

    o ya 3 more things i think you shoud make more kidsboro cd and make more odysseys with jason as a secret agent and make conny marry vike hamelton in Silver Lining frome In Hot Pursuit.


  • Joy on January 29th, 2010 - 3:43pm

     

    LOVE the new characters, especially Connie. However, I wish that Eugene still had orange hair. He looks awesome now except for the new hair color! :-) Good choice for Wooton’s hair.


  • Bermuda Girl on January 29th, 2010 - 4:03pm

     

    I think that some people are being to sensitive about Connie’s clothes. Skinny jeans and flats are just what people like to wear. It doesn’t really matter since she’s wearing a long shirt. I think all the characters look great!


  • Bermuda Girl on January 29th, 2010 - 4:10pm

     

    I’d understand objection if she was wearing heels, a miniskirt and fishnet stockings but come on, this is a family show it’s not like they’re trying to put out bad messages. I think Connie looks really modern and cool!


  • Odyssey on January 29th, 2010 - 5:26pm

     

    That was cool I like it better when the real Bob and Jessi Host the podcasts. I like the new connie Eugene is okay but not geeke enough. Whit is a little old style but all in all it is okay


  • smilegirl on January 29th, 2010 - 6:12pm

     

    LOVE it! the new odyssey characters r AWESOME! this was a great podcast, thanks focus on the family for everything u do!


  • So Joe on January 29th, 2010 - 6:14pm

     

    I lOVE the new Connie!!! she looks so much more mature than she does in the old drawings. THe ponytail was perfect when she was a teenager, but now she looks like a young woman. I like the New Eugene too. And Wooton, but I don’t like the new Whit, it makes him look older not younger to me. I also don’t like the new voice of Whit either. I wish the old actor would come back… I ve been listen 2 oddysey since 1991 and whit is like an old friend. To hear his voice all raspy is a dissapointment.


  • Leanne on January 29th, 2010 - 7:02pm

     

    Great job! I love the way Connie looks! She’s way cuter now. These podcasts just keep getting funnier and funnier! Has DiAnn ever acted in Odyssey? Her voice sounded a lot like the teacher in, “Red Herring” Keep up the good work AIO!
    Great ear, Leanne! Yes, Diane did play the teacher in “Red Herring”. She also played the role of “Diane” in “The Top Floor” and “Time for Action”.


  • Leanne on January 29th, 2010 - 7:06pm

     

    I agree with you, Lindsey, Odyssey wont ever be the same. I will definitely always love the first 50 albums too. I guess Odyssey couldn’t stay the same forever though. As long as they keep teaching kids about the Bible I will be ok with it, but you’re right-It won’t really be Odyssey anymore. Maybe they’ll suprise us and bring out some really great stuff. Oh well, everything has to change sooner or later.


  • Anonymous on January 29th, 2010 - 7:30pm

     

    Wow LINDSEY that was harsh really harsh I love all the new stuff, and I have beed an odyssey fan ever since i was little, and I think all the new changes are perfect its exactly what odyssey needs


  • hannah on January 29th, 2010 - 7:37pm

     

    and connie is amazing to those who think other wise


  • hannah on January 29th, 2010 - 7:49pm

     

    and those who commented on connie’s pant the old pants were just as tight except they were green


  • bobbianne on January 29th, 2010 - 7:51pm

     

    i think the new charicters are a little difrent but still cool


  • keatonimcool on January 29th, 2010 - 8:05pm

     

    What happened to natalie and mark horton? When are they getting married? Will they have children? will eugene and katrina have children too? Will connie get married to mitch? How many children did tom have?


  • hannah n f on January 29th, 2010 - 8:38pm

     

    oh i wish they would not change any thing about oddesey but they are the ones who started it

  • aly on January 29th, 2010 - 9:02pm

     

    The new Connie looks cool! I like the old Whit better though. ( I don’t really think he looks like a lumber jack though. )


  • chloe on January 29th, 2010 - 10:00pm

     

    I love Adventures in Odyssey! I listen to it while I do my algebra! (I’m homeschooled) Is anyone else homesschooled? :D GO ODYSSEY AND GO HOMESCHOOLERS!


  • lilly grace on January 29th, 2010 - 10:03pm

     

    What was with those paper faces?


  • ben on January 30th, 2010 - 12:18am

     

    I really love the old odyssey and I hate to see the old characters go but they have to and Whit looks so much stronger and wooten looked so much better on the cover of album 50. No comment on Eugene and Connie looks sort of the same. I miss lawrence hodges and they should have brought him back on the triangled web.


  • ben on January 30th, 2010 - 12:20am

     

    Lindsy you rote alot like whoa and the new odyssey can be just as good as the first but I do regret that they had to change it


  • Doll on January 30th, 2010 - 12:30am

     

    Brock i don’t know y they didn’t make u the pod cast person cuz u always seem to have so much fun :P hah

    what does brock do? i’d love to hear! :)


  • Doll on January 30th, 2010 - 12:38am

     

    p.s. and they should have to do something different so we know its really them since so many people use their names.


  • Elijah on January 30th, 2010 - 1:09am

     

    i dont like the new whit i like old one bring him back with the old ppl! THE seckend whit aka paul hulinger was great. I have ben listing to odssey for a long time i herd them all and i like the old odssey. plz let this comment thru thx bye


  • levi on January 30th, 2010 - 9:47am

     

    there was a comment before this by some body named priscilla about the New art work and i have to agree (No offense Any and every one)I really liked the art work between Danger signals And Album 51 best I’v been listing to all the old Albums And I really miss all the old kids Like Lucy, Jered, Curt, and Jimmy and Dona (Iknow some came back in Album 50 But I want Them Back as Kids)Well I hope I’ll like the new characters Just as much And in my mind the characters are The same
    Bye


  • sakura on January 30th, 2010 - 10:08am

     

    i liked the other logo better and change whits glasses i likr connie


  • Alden on January 30th, 2010 - 11:19am

     

    For all I like about Odessey, I’m afraid you’re falling a little short. All these changes are kind of messing up the feel of the show. What was so great about the show was that it had an old-time feel. Now, it seems like your just trying to give a unfitting modern face. We’ll see about the new episodes though :{


  • ethan on January 30th, 2010 - 11:27am

     

    I liked how eugene had no eyes,it was funny
    But I liked the cool new vest.


  • bryanna on January 30th, 2010 - 4:30pm

     

    I liked the old look better. There just not the same character’s anymore! Anyone agree?


  • Lydia on January 30th, 2010 - 5:24pm

     

    I really like the new Connie! I love her flats and new hair look. But, in the future when I look at Whit I will always think of the old one and not the lumberjack Whit. I really think Wooton is funny and Eugene is always also going to be the old Eugene to me. The new family… not so sure about that. I really hope you will consider bringing back the old Whit. He looks more Grandfatherly than the new one. Or maybe just brush him up to look like that. Thanks for the podcast! I love the masks!


  • Joshua on January 30th, 2010 - 6:27pm

     

    Daved, I agree!!


  • Caspian x on January 30th, 2010 - 6:44pm

     

    Nice. I like some of the changes. But I’m not so sure about the new Whit… I want to buy album 51. How many include the poster??


  • odyssey fan on January 30th, 2010 - 8:13pm

     

    We love the new change nothing bad to say about it.We LOVE ODYSSEY FOREVER NO MATTER WHAT!!


  • odyssey fan on January 30th, 2010 - 8:14pm

     

    ALSO CONNIE YOU LOOK GREAT!


  • Skittles on January 30th, 2010 - 8:41pm

     

    Why did you make new picturs?I thought Wooton was good but thats about all.


  • Samuel on January 30th, 2010 - 11:18pm

     

    Very nice, Finally a Mr. Whitaker, Eugene, and Connie that I like the looks of, I’ve never been able to make a connection between the pictures and the characters before. I like how Connies grown up a bit and has a little more style, and I really like this whole concept of “What if Adventures in Odyssey were starting now?” I Am looking forward to it, and the new voice for Mr. Whitaker that sounds a lot more like Hal Smith!


  • Bernedette on January 30th, 2010 - 11:23pm

     

    Does anyone else feel unnerved that there are no longer any Black characters on the show? I understand if the actors weren’t available, but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t introduce another Black family. Why is there only new family when they’ve taken off so many old characters anyway? I’m just sayin….


  • Wendy on January 31st, 2010 - 12:03am

     

    Most of the drawings look pretty good, but Whit looks too young and although Connie’s makeover is way better than her previous picture she still looks too young. I think Connie should be made to look at least 20.


  • sarah on January 31st, 2010 - 10:45am

     

    I love the way the characters look now. Connie and Eugene look so much better. I just started listening to adventures in odyssey a little after school started this year, and I already love it. I think that my favorites are the Novacom Saga, Mandy’s Debut, Broken Window, and Room Mates. I was wondering if Eugene was a Christian and if Connie would ever marry Mitch. Good job with the podcast. What does 1800-afamily mean? Is it just me or are the characters’ heads too big for their bodies? Love AIO


  • Danielle on January 31st, 2010 - 11:34am

     

    I love Connie!! but I’m not too wild about the new Whit, Eugene looks good though!! and wooten… =)


  • Maria on January 31st, 2010 - 12:34pm

     

    All the new characters look great! What’s with Wooton’s nose though? When is Connie getting married?


  • barlowgirl on January 31st, 2010 - 3:08pm

     

    Connie is too young.


  • Riley on January 31st, 2010 - 3:25pm

     

    Connie! I love the new style!!


  • JENETTE on January 31st, 2010 - 4:52pm

     

    I JUST SAW THE NEW ODYSSEY FOR THE FIRST TIME AND I WAS A LITTLE SHOCKED! I HAD KNOWN THAT YOU WERE CHANGING THEIR LOOK BUT I HAD NOT SEEN IT. THE CHARACTERS LOOK DIFFERENT AND THAT WILL TAKE SOME GETTING USED TO, HOWEVER I THINK THAT THE LOOK WILL GROW ON ME. EUGENE ACTUALLY LOOKS CONNIE IS THE ONE THAT WILL BE THE HARDEST FOR ME TO ACCEPT. I DO LIKE THEM THOUGH AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO NEW ODYSSEY ADVENTURES IN THE FUTURE!


  • JENETTE on January 31st, 2010 - 4:57pm

     

    Quick question: Will you be changing every Odyssey charasters’ look so that they corspond with the new ones? Or will you keep everyone else the same? They don’t really match the old style of drawing so it looks kind of weird having them be half and half.


  • Bex on January 31st, 2010 - 8:01pm

     

    I Love the new Connie,she looks EXACTLY like me!
    :lol:


  • JOEY on January 31st, 2010 - 8:44pm

     

    Boo!!! I dis-like those new drawings! WAY TOO Modern for Connie Especially! “Green sweater” is her trade-mark! Why mess it up?!? Wooten doesn’t look like he sounds AT ALL!! He looks like a normal every-day mailman that has gained weight. And Whit, in one episode, Rusty Gordon said in his book, made fun of Whit’s pants. Rusty has NO reason now. I can’t be a critic with those new characters, so…I guess we’ll have to wait…
    One last thought: Everyone is WAY TOO MODERN!!!


  • Jayjay on January 31st, 2010 - 9:30pm

     

    I don’t really like the new whit or Eugene Connie looks sorta pretty but I liked the old characters but they already changed it they can’t change it back.my mom says Eugene and wooton look like nerds :D

    More episodes with Brock, please! and Diane, you were good too! I don’t like the new eugene at all! He doesn’t look right! I like Connie and Whit (though whit looks like a girl) and Wooton, though. I don’t like some of the changes to odyssey! I liked it the way it was! And i really don’t like the new voice for Whit either. It just won’t be the same odyssey. sigh… Love the video podcasts! Keep ‘em coming!


  • trulyblessed on February 1st, 2010 - 12:12pm

     

    I have to agree with Lindsey S. I’m defiantly gonna listen to the first 50 albums but after that I have a feeling I’m not gonna be begging my mom to buy the latest album. I don’t want to sound rude but it’s not Odyssey any more and I’m a little disappointed.


  • NICK on February 1st, 2010 - 1:47pm

    I DO NOT like the new Whit I mean come on seriously he looks like a lumberjack!!!!
    Connie’s okay.
    Eugene looks like a nerd.
    Wooton looks okay but WHY is he FAT?????
    I’m not looking too forward for the new album to come out.
    Odyssey is changing. :(


  • Lindsey s. on February 1st, 2010 - 8:42pm

     

    EVERYONE
    I was not trying to be harsh, rude, or insensitive. I was just being honest as a fan. One fan mentioned that I already have made accusations on the new Odyssey and have not even given it a chance. I will listen to album 51, however, I have a feeling I won’t be able to relate to it or enjoy it. I understand that you can’t keep Odyssey the same forever, however, I just can’t change along with it. I love the old Odyssey and I will always be a fan of the show.


  • Lindsey s. on February 1st, 2010 - 8:47pm

     

    I do want to mention that I am about to be 18 and have been listening to Odyssey ever since I was about 5. I hope that will help you understand why it is so hard for me to like the new Odyssey. After listening to the old Odyssey for about 13 years, I just can’t give it all up for the newer and fresher Odyssey that is for the next generation. I hope you now can understand the way I feel.


  • Abi on February 1st, 2010 - 10:34pm

     

    On album 51 Connie and Eugene look like their old selves, why don’t they look like the new art work on the podcast?
    BTW- I love how Connie looks! And Wooten is perfect! That is just right for him! Eugene will take some time getting used to, but he looks great! I think Whit looked better before.
    I can’t wait for album 51 comes out!
    Your Biggest Fan, Abi

    Wow I love the changes! Connie’s hair is so pretty! Eugene actually turned out really nice! and Wooton is really close to how I imagined him! Whit looks good too, and I’m looking forward to hearing the new album soon! P.S. Do you think you might consider adding more to the Odyssey Vault? I mean you have so many pictures of the new characters and not all of them are listed in the gallery of pictures in the Odyssey Vault, Just a thought. Keep up the good work Focus on The Family! :)


  • Anonymous on February 2nd, 2010 - 8:51am

     

    I hate what they did to Whit. And was overjoyed when it didn’t change on my other computer. But I feel that odyssey deserves form what they’ve done over the last 20 years besides MITCH (totally horrible idea) the chance to prove themselves. I for one was a big fan of the barcleys my sister called the Eugene saga 5 years in advance all im saying is odyssey should get it’s chance but if they don’t do it right shame on the entire crew I wont say goodbye to odyssey until after 51 but after that…


  • odyssey fan on February 2nd, 2010 - 12:57pm

     

    The new whit is SO WEIRD. About the only new person i like is Connie. The rest are just WEIRD.


  • Christian A. on February 2nd, 2010 - 1:45pm

  • Christian A. on February 2nd, 2010 - 1:50pm

     

    why cant everyone realize that gary locke practically started back over from scratch and that the characters were changed SO THAT THEY WOULD LOOK MORE MODERN! i’m really disappointed that so many fans have SUCH NEGATIVE ATTITUDES. i really like gary locke’s effort at totally redoing the characters and his design of the new characters. Keep it coming guys!


  • ABI on February 2nd, 2010 - 1:53pm

     

    I didn’t know art changes were going to happen. so i screamed when i saw the new drawings on the website :P Whit: loved him, he’s slimmer just like in the very first drawings, (anyone remember that?)Connie and Eugene he looks like a married man! and Wooton: OK doesn’t look as goofy as he sounds but remember his TWIN brother is a slick business man. so Wooton couldn’t be too goofy!!
    Doing a great job odyssey


  • Christian A. on February 2nd, 2010 - 1:56pm

     

    the only negative thing i have to say about the podcast is that brock and diane were being a little to weird and awkward. it was an overall weird podcast and i would like it to be at least just a little bit more mature next time. i’m only thirteen and yet i felt pretty uncomfortable while i watched this w/ my siblings. But i still love the illustrations! p.s. please keep up the work with the album covers! p.s.s. could you keep up the good work a little faster, gary locke?!


  • rachel on February 2nd, 2010 - 2:43pm

     

    the looks of the new characters are starting to look like the Incredibles.you know elastigirl,violet etc.anyway, i luv the new connie.i see you’re getting a lot of complaints.well fear not i am supporting you. God bless. i luv you guys.you ROCK.


  • Esther on February 2nd, 2010 - 3:09pm

  • Bermuda Girl on February 2nd, 2010 - 5:35pm

    Doll, Look at the cover art of “In Hot Pursuit”. The guy in the car is Mitch… I guess it’s the whole “beauty in the eye of the beholder” thing.


  • Anonymous on February 2nd, 2010 - 10:12pm

     

    Please go back to the old drawings!! It’s not Eugene anymore! or Connie, or Whit. It’s hard enough hearing a totally different Whit. don’t change everything! I loved Odyssey because it stayed the same, it felt like they were people I knew. I know you don’t want Odyssey to get outdated, but I think half it’s charm was that it wasn’t all “modern”. I guess change is inevitable, but if there’s anyway you can stick with some of the old stuff.
    PS At least make Eugene less “cool”.


  • Daniel on February 2nd, 2010 - 10:24pm

     

    The new drawings are pretty good. Whit looks a little to youg but that’s probally to mach his voice. I like the new family but I hope volume #51 will have a few episodes with the Mcays, the Washingtons and and the strausburgs.(I hope i spelled it right)Also when is the A.I.O. teem going to make more episodes with Lenard and his youngest son?


  • Sarah on February 3rd, 2010 - 12:18am

     

    Please bring back the old drawings! It’s not Whit or Connie, or Eugene. Eugene is too cool and Whit is too thin. I’ve listened to Odyssey so long, it feels like they’re people I know. It’s great to update, but half of Odyssey’s charm is that it was never so “modern”. Odyssey is the BEST!


  • janessa on February 3rd, 2010 - 8:50am

  • DANIELLE on February 3rd, 2010 - 2:28pm

     

    I LOVE CONNIE! SHE IS SO NICE! I LIKE THE NEW CONNIE!


  • Allikazam on February 3rd, 2010 - 3:44pm

     

    I agree totally with Lindsey S. and Priscilla-whoever they are. My story is very similar to L(Although I’m not 18)-I have listened to odyssey all my life and it is very very hard to accept these new changes. Why change? Odyssey is just not Odyssey anymore. I don’t think it ever will be again-and that makes me very sad. I guess I’ll just have to be happy with albums 1-50. Those were good episodes.


  • Allikazam on February 3rd, 2010 - 3:46pm

     

    I’m sorry. I’m sure the episodes you’re making right now are nice too.


  • Allikazam on February 3rd, 2010 - 3:53pm

     

    But I have some questions. Instead of trying to find new actors for people whohave died, why not-i know this sounds terrible and it would break my heart-why not just have them die or move away on the show? It would be alot easier (at least for me )than to hear new actors playing them. Of course, I understand Whit. You can’t have Odyssey without Whit-they go together. Amother thing-when are you going to end odyssey production? It can’t go on forever, can it? I guess I shouldn’t “be so negative”


  • Allikazam on February 3rd, 2010 - 3:58pm

     

    …as one guy said. But I can have my own opinion, can’t I? I’ll give Odyssey – the NEW Odyssey a chance. I’m sorry for “being so neagtive.” Until the new episodes come out, I am faithfully waiting and hoping they will have some likeness to the old Odyssey-the REAL Odyssey.


  • Original joe on February 3rd, 2010 - 4:31pm

     

    Jaydin:), there’s a picture of Mitch on the cover of the album “In Hot Pursuit”, and on “Friends, Family, and Countrymen” he’s sitting next to Connie. Mitchell, the titles are:
    1. The Inspiration Station I 2. The Inspiration Station II 3. Clutter 4. Game for a Mystery 5. Target of the Week 6. For the Birds 7. When You’re Right, You’re Right 8. Grandma’s Visit 9. Finish What You… 10. The Jubilee Singers I 11. The Jubilee Singers II 12. The Jubilee Singer III


  • Anna on February 3rd, 2010 - 4:36pm

     

    1. Whit looks like a lumber jack on a diet.
    2. Eugene looks like an old-fashioned nerd.
    3. Connie looks like a fashion model.
    4. Wooten looks fat.


  • Isa on February 3rd, 2010 - 4:39pm

     

    Why is whit so skinny he has to be fat for the character to fit. connie is pretty you made here good. Eugene is intersting. wooten looks funny but good.


  • hannah on February 3rd, 2010 - 5:00pm

     

    AWESOME!!! you did a great job on designing the characters oddyssey team!!! they look great…:-)


  • bRitt on February 3rd, 2010 - 6:05pm

     

    i agree with meg


  • Doll on February 3rd, 2010 - 7:22pm

     

    hey ya’ll!!! i personally don’t c wat the bi deal is!!! yes i luv odyssey the way it is and am a little wary about the new album but has odyssey ever been bad??!!!! give them a little slack… its not like we’re gonna c the characters when we are listening anyway… i like them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • alicia on February 3rd, 2010 - 7:37pm

     

    luv connie!looks like me!anyway is there a way i can see the poster that comes with the first edition of album 51 without buying it?

    I totally loved this one. I like how Jesse and Bob come in at the end.


  • jazmyne on February 4th, 2010 - 1:26am

     

    i like the new look,they look more real connie looks way better than she use to dut i like the old whit if you know what i mean


  • Sam on February 4th, 2010 - 8:36am

     

    It seems the new Odyssey will appeal more to younger listeners.


  • m on February 4th, 2010 - 9:01am

     

    The new Connie is really pretty but I’m not sure I like Eugene and whit..also I thought Wooton was always a character you couldn’t animate. But it is really cool that your having families like the Parkers and Jones. Because I miss the Barcley!


  • Joe on February 4th, 2010 - 9:06am

     

    Animating them kinda takes away the magic of getting to decide what you think they look like. Imagination is amazing!


  • Anonymous on February 4th, 2010 - 9:26am

     

    Connie is so up-to-date! I love the new odyssey characters. You have not lost an odyssey fan! In fact, for my b-day, which is in 3 months, I am going to have an AIO party! I am so excited to hear the new season, and don’t give up on making those shows! AIO RULES!


  • Hadassah on February 4th, 2010 - 12:03pm

     

    Bermude girl i don’t want to burst your bubble but WE DONT WATCH TV OR HAVE MOVIES.MY FAMILY DOS NOT ALLOW IT.AND CONNIE JUST DOES NOT LOOK THAT GREAT.I LIKED THE OLD CONNIE WITH A PIGTAIL. :0)


  • Hadassah on February 4th, 2010 - 12:05pm

     

    Remember a while back we were disscusing about if Tamika or marvin was older well Marvin is older because he asked docter WIse My LITTLE SITER (TAmika) Messes with my comments


  • Hadassah on February 4th, 2010 - 12:08pm

     

    Whats happening to us.Why aren’t we satistfed with the new Charecters.


  • idance4jesus on February 4th, 2010 - 12:30pm

     

    We are meant to be modern!!

  • Lindsey s. on February 4th, 2010 - 1:20pm

     

    ONE
    ALL FANS: Please stop putting down another fan’s opinion of the changes of the new Odyssey. There is nothing wrong telling others that you disagree with their opinion, however, when you start saying some unkind things about someone else’s point of view. Everyone IS entitled to their own opinion, even if you disagree with it. I feel like I am at a Odyssey Fan Rally where..


  • Lindsey s. on February 4th, 2010 - 1:35pm

     

    TWO
    …there is a line separating the fans that like the changes and those who don’t. No, not everyone agrees about these changes, but you need to respect each others opinion even if you don’t agree. I am not trying to lecture anyone, however it pains me to see fans acting this way to each other. Please respect each others opinion.


  • trulyblessed on February 4th, 2010 - 3:18pm

     

    Just gotta say im sorry that my earler comment was kinda rude. I said what I did cuz i’ve been listen almost everyday since I was 8 and this show is really dear to me. I’ts changed ALOT but i guess everything has to eventually.. please forgive me Odyssey staff!


  • trulyblessed on February 4th, 2010 - 3:20pm

     

    oh! and please keep the old art work the same. i like how, on my I-pod, the artwork resembles all the changes Odyssey has gone through!


  • morgan on February 4th, 2010 - 5:24pm

     

    have you all noticed that the online broadcasts aren’t working lately? weird. any way, i am a little sad about the new odyssey, I like the idea of new drawings and all it just seems that the odyssey that we’ve all come to know and love is gone. i like the new characters but i am disappointed that there is a new whit. he doesn’t seem quite the same. over all i am happy to see that there is progress being made on the show. i just wish you would’ve developed some of the old characters a little more


  • morgan on February 4th, 2010 - 5:30pm

     

    :( i loved the old odyssey


  • morgan on February 4th, 2010 - 5:37pm

     

    But I am excited to hear how the new odyssey turns out. maybe i will get used to it


  • Elissa on February 4th, 2010 - 6:30pm

     

    I really miss the old characters…


  • Club penguin on February 4th, 2010 - 7:50pm

     

    I like how Eugene has visble eyes and the new Connie looks beautiful!


  • Rebekah .b on February 4th, 2010 - 9:18pm

     

    Lindsey s.
    i agree with you!
    :mrgreen:


  • Beth on February 4th, 2010 - 9:27pm

     

    We all know that album 51 is bringing new changes to Odyssey. But, then again, that always happens after the hiatus. Anyone remember the first hiatus in 1996? Once 1997 rolled around, we had new characters like Jared, Dwayne, Sarah, Mandy, and Liz. We lost beloved characters like Lucy, Jimmy, and Curt. The episodes in 1997 were different than those prior. But we got used to them and enjoyed them. I think it’ll be the same thing this time.


  • katie l. on February 4th, 2010 - 9:34pm

     

    really really cool.
    :mrgreen:


  • Abbie on February 4th, 2010 - 10:02pm

     

    I kind of like the changes, but what happened to the media center? you can’t listen to any other adio, just the front page one. what happened?
    Chloe, i no this is a little late, but, i am home school! As i read your comment i was like, that sounds like me, but with a diff name! I always listen to it while i do my algebra! :)


  • Abbie on February 4th, 2010 - 10:17pm

     

    I LUV ODYSSEY! No matter what you guys do, i’ll still luv it (although i kind of liked the old “grandfatherly” whit, better)! And even though you might not like the how the characters look on paper, you can still imagine them the same way they were. And i really don’t think connie looks immodest, well, my dad thinks the jeans maybe a little tight around the top, but besides that, it’s great, she really looks modern, and pretty!. you have definitely not lost a fan here!


  • Whit fan on February 5th, 2010 - 8:40am

     

    I agree with Lindsey S.


  • sheldon on February 5th, 2010 - 1:30pm

     

    they look good all of them. I willing to give them a trie. beside’s you listen to AIO so you arent going to see them. love AIO #1 fan

    Ha ha! Great podcast! Keep up the awesome work!


  • Abbie on February 5th, 2010 - 6:51pm

     

    I agree sheldon (about the: we won’t even be albe to see them)


  • SKyler on February 5th, 2010 - 7:19pm

     

    I love the pictures,but I want to see what Mitch looks like!And I agree BEN!I love the new Eugene.he’s soo handsome.Keep on doing your best artwork!

  • Anonymous on February 5th, 2010 - 8:10pm

     

    I really really dislike the new characters and so does my sister. I think that the old ones are better for the characters. I am also partial to the old ones because they just seem right to me. Thanks!


  • rebekah b. on February 6th, 2010 - 12:44am

     

    i think its sad that everyone is saying that all the new characters are bad, and all the artists worked so hard to impress us.
    REALLY SAD.

  • rebekah b. on February 6th, 2010 - 1:43am

     

    i like the new Odyssey, its nice to have a change once and a while.
    i have some questions:
    1. are the Mulligans still in Odyssey.
    thats all my questions for now, (i know, there is only 1 question, but oh well. lol)
    :mrgreen:


  • AREM on February 6th, 2010 - 5:19am

     

    I agree with Abbie. I don’t really like the new Whit. Connie is ok, but I will always remember her with her green shirt & ponytail. I wish that Odyssey had given more time 4 the endorsements 2 be sent in. I just saw it, but it’s to late 2 send it in. :-( I can’t wait 2 hear the new album! Here is a poll. Who is your fav character?
    Connie
    Eugene
    Whit
    Wooton


  • Julianna on February 6th, 2010 - 11:54am

  • Leanne on February 6th, 2010 - 12:46pm

     

    Does anybody out there like the way the new whit looks? I have read most of the comments on here, and it doesn’t sound like anybody does. The rest of the characters look fine though. Odyssey is awesome!


  • Paige on February 6th, 2010 - 1:50pm

     

    I liked Eugene’s old look more than the new look.


  • emily on February 6th, 2010 - 2:22pm

     

    Whit looks girly! and connie looks like she’s 13! but Eugene looks good. Can’t wait for album 51! I wonder if Katrina made Eugene. oh, and why is connie so exited about Mitch having green eyes,( in “Green Eyes and Yellow Tulips”) dosn’t she have green eyes to? well conies head is way to big in perspective to the rest of her body. And she does look a little immodest. but I like how she looks on the cover of album 51


  • Nate on February 6th, 2010 - 3:00pm

     

    Funny! I don’t like the new characters. e.g. Connie’s hair looks random and she looks too young. Eugene is better WITHOUT eyes too.


  • Nate on February 6th, 2010 - 3:01pm

     

    I think the original ones are better.


  • meg on February 6th, 2010 - 6:42pm

     

    Odyssey is not changing in message turms. The way the charecters look (like hair and dress) is the only thing that is changing.


  • rebekah b. on February 6th, 2010 - 6:58pm

     

    Connie is always wearing that sweater! LOL!

  • savanna on February 6th, 2010 - 8:41pm

     

    i like the parker family and eugene and connie but whit is ugly.you need connie and mitch to marry. is the parker family going to be nice? brock you are soo funny playing bob


  • melissa on February 6th, 2010 - 8:43pm

     

    I do not like the new pics at all. I feel like the odyssy is not the same either. It is bad enough to have a new voice for Whit– but to change his looks as well? I agree with all the negative comments. Is anyone listening to the Odyessy fans???


  • savanna on February 6th, 2010 - 8:46pm

     

    ok.i love oddsey as well as all of you guys.


  • Julia on February 6th, 2010 - 8:59pm

     

    I am getting used to the look of the New Whit, and I like Connie…. She needed to get rid of the green jogging suit=) I don’t really like Eugene


  • jewel on February 7th, 2010 - 1:15am

     

    can u guys post a picture of MITCH. its kinda hard picturing him….how he looks like…and his Green eyes :)


  • Sam on February 7th, 2010 - 12:08pm

     

    The New Odyssey does not have the same feel as the old one.I’ve listened to Odyssey since I was 8 and still love it at 15,but I don’t know if this new season is still going to be the same Odyssey I’ve come to know and love!?


  • Allikazam on February 7th, 2010 - 1:10pm

     

    Thanx for being a good example Lindsey S. I apppreciate it

    Her as in Connie =P


  • Kayla on February 7th, 2010 - 9:36pm

     

    I was sort of taken aback that AIO had made new drawings of the characters! I think Whit looking great without the excess weight, but his hair is sort of….retro? And I hope those glasses are only for reading…
    Eugene looks, well…he just wouldn’t be Eugene without his hair hanging over his eyes. I love the different pattern vest idea though! I think that this new drawing of him would look better as his son (at maybe age 19 or 20). Wooton looks great! No comment there! I think connie looks great!!! But honestly I think she looks a little too perfect, compared to her quick personality and chirpy voice. All the new characters look great!!!!!!!!!!


  • Joshua s on February 8th, 2010 - 10:24am

  • Fonda on February 8th, 2010 - 4:27pm

     

    I love the new Connie! She looks like a real person! But she doesn’t look like “Connie”. I’ll get used to it tho. =)
    I like Whit, too — his new glasses are a little wahatever, but he did need to be slimmed down a bit for all the adventures he’s in.
    But I DON’T LIKE Eugene! Can you please change him?


  • birdy on February 8th, 2010 - 5:48pm

     

    to be honest, i kinda liked how Whit, Connie, Eugene & Wooton looked before. And I agree with many others, that Connie & Mitch…should go together. AIO rocks!! keep up everything..


  • ny on February 8th, 2010 - 6:50pm

     

    Hi! The new people look great!I love,love,love Connie!I think it’s really sad people don’t like the new look.


  • Stephanie on February 8th, 2010 - 8:16pm

     

    Haha!! They finally got rid of Connie’s seafoam green sweatsuit! She looks so much more fashionable, which really makes more sense with her character. A few of the characters will take a bit of getting used to, but I really like them. Good job, Gary Locke!


  • zack on February 8th, 2010 - 8:58pm

     

    Ahhhh! The world is coming to an END! First juicy fruit changes it’s wrapping then AIO changes EVERYTHING! AHHHHH! (I’m just being silly) ;)


  • Beckie on February 9th, 2010 - 5:30am

     

    I love the new Connie, but everyone else is too… different, I guess. I agree with Olivia, shouldn’t everyone else change? The new characters are a different style than the old ones. Oh, and Jesse, how come the Eugene Sodoku in Clubhouse Magazine still has a picture of the old Eugene? :)

    I THOUGHT THE DRAWINGS WERE OK, BUT EUGENE SHOULD DEFINITELY HAVE HIS GLASSES BACK.THEY`RE HIS TRADEMARK.
    P.S. ODDYSEY PEOPLE, TODAY AND YESTERDAY THERE HAS BEEN
    NO NEW EPISODES FOR THE ON THE RADIO SECTION. PLEASE
    PUT THE NEW ONES ON.


  • john on February 9th, 2010 - 8:10am

     

    HEY EVERYONE, IF YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT`S COMING ON THE RADIO SECTION…SAY A DAY OR TWO AHEAD OF WHERE THE

    ODDYSEY VAULT, AND IN THE “SEARCH FOR EPISODES BY AIR
    DATE” SECTION, SELECT THE “LAST AIR DATE” THING,THEN TYPE IN THE DATE OF A FEW DAYS AHEAD, THEN YOU SHOULD BE
    ABLE TO SEE BEFORE ANYONE ELSE WHAT COMES ON IN 6 DAYS.

    Well one last saying about the characters. Eugeune looks SO much better the old way. really though. i thought it was cute hoe eugeune had hair covering his eyes.but now he looks lika a dad. an old grumpy dad. or someone who lives at the nursing home. Connies hair style doesnt suit her. wooton is to fat. i thought he would look like eugeune. and what happened to the old kids? huh? like the barcleys? or the strossburgs? or like alex? and liz? and garrod?(if thats how you spell it.) im very upset.

    I like the new Mr. Whittaker. He fits Andre’s voice. He looks mostly like I imagine him. I like all the new people. The only thing I don’t get is why they would spend the entire hiatus making the albums look the same just to change things around.

    Ah, cruel Fate! Is not there enough woe and suffering in this cold, cruel world without compounding it by changing our beloved characters? (Oh, pardon me, I believe I’m suffering from Walton/Meltsner – or would that be Mushnik? – Syndrome.) Ah, well, at least Wooton looks perfectly . . . Wooton-esque.


  • Allie on February 11th, 2010 - 3:35pm

    It’s actually Blackgaard, as in the Shakespearean “blackguard” or villain. However, since everyone’s favorite ham has not been subjected to the cruel and arbitrary pen, I shan’t dwell on the subject. I was merely referring to my pessimistic loquacity, but since my name is neither Blackgaard, Mushnik, or . . . Well, I suppose I’m willing to give the new characters (that’s what they are, after all) a chance. Just know that the hard-core fans expect a lot. We’ll be watching. (Or listening.)


  • franklin on February 13th, 2010 - 8:04pm

    Snow Day! It’s funny, awesome, cool, hilarious, weird, adventuruos, snowy, Indiana Jonsish (don’t ask me why, pleease, i just think it sounds that way, lol)Irresistible, so true,,, OK,, i’m done. Hehe. Anyway, I luv odyssey!


  • Chrissie on February 14th, 2010 - 8:07am

     

    I think that all the characters look good … they look more modern. Connie looks older, and so does Eugene. It’ll take longer to get use to Whit, since he looks alot younger. I didn’t picture Wooton like that, but it was close. Great job Odyssey!


  • Idance4jesus on February 14th, 2010 - 1:36pm

     

    Sorry Brock, I can’t endorse something I haven’t read!!


  • chris on February 14th, 2010 - 5:34pm

     

    though i am not a big fan of the new Eugene or Connie I know i can just imagine them how i want , Whit and Wooton are ok though.Did you hear Paul H. died?=(


  • shan on February 15th, 2010 - 4:37pm

     

    I love finally knowing what Wooton looks like, it fits him exactly! I didn’t like the new Eugene at first but now I can see how this new picture fit’s him much better. Connie’s clothes are right and I think I’m getting used to the new hair, but I think her face needs a little more of the old Connie in it. And Whit..well..I just really liked the old drawing better.


  • big fan on February 15th, 2010 - 7:53pm

     

    I can’t wait to see the contest entries! Sounds like we’re cooking up some new stars!


  • big fan on February 15th, 2010 - 7:56pm

     

    I have seen Connie grow and develop over the years, and have to say I favor a different Connie. Ms. Constance Kendall has been around my family for a long time (since my 19 year old brother was born!) I will definitely miss Paul Hurlinger :( and all of the other voice talents that have had to leave the Adventures in Odyssey family over the years.

    Will jared be in the new odysseys? because if not i will be real sad.


  • joy on February 21st, 2010 - 5:12pm

     

    I love Connie’s new look. She looks more mature & grown up now, & sometimes, she doesn’t act all that mature (no offense, at all) so in a small way, it almost doesn’t fit her. I agree, the new Whit looks like a lumberjack. I like his old look better, but I like that he’s skinnier now. Eugene, well, Eugene has eyes, at least that we can see!! He’s definitely different, but I don’t mind it all that much. As for Wooton, I never really saw a picture of him, so it doesn’t bother me. I love AIO!!


  • joy on February 21st, 2010 - 5:15pm

     

    Also, I’m glad Connie doesn’t wear that turtleneck anymore. I liked the old logo better, also. I was always fascinated with it. And please show us some new pictures of the kids besides the Parkers! AIO is the bomb! My mom and I listen to it together, and we love it!


  • Abbie on February 22nd, 2010 - 2:48pm

     

    i luved everything, as i said beofre.but i agree with yah joy, about connie. but about wooton, well, he was actually almost totally diff then wat i imagined him. and, is that red or brown hair? But besides that, as i said before (and before) everythings amazing.


  • godlover on February 22nd, 2010 - 4:10pm

     

    I love the new odyssey characters. But, everyone is being such a pessimist. Look up Proverbs 17:22! Lighten up!
    On a different note, Connie looks amazing! She kinda resembles Katie Lee. Eugene looks awesome and so does Wooton. Whit looks different and great. Everyone else is good!

    Remember- Live for Jesus!!


  • andrea g. on February 22nd, 2010 - 4:22pm

     

    I kinda like the “new” characters. Though I do like the old Whit better. The new Eugene is pretty neat. I see some people complaining and saying “it’s not him”, but then again, he’s not who he first was on the show anymore. He has changed some. Now he looks more like the married type. (And more like a dad, too. Will he and Katrina have any kids? All the characters have changed some, no point in being afraid of change anymore.)


  • Anonymous on February 22nd, 2010 - 5:09pm

     

    I was just wondering, will the Rathbones ever become Christians??
    I never used to like Connie’s turtleneck either. She looks great now. And I like being able to see Eugene’s eyes too.
    Great JOb Odyssey! :-)


  • Spy on February 22nd, 2010 - 7:54pm

     

    I agree with Wooten Lover. I love the show, but every new characters are not the ones we all have known and loved.
    Go to the Oddesy Vault and click on ‘see all characters’. They are so different. There also so thin. Have they been on a bad diet?


  • nicole on February 24th, 2010 - 3:07pm

    I love these new drawings! I like how you’ve updated them from a ’90s look to this decade. It’s great! I especially like how Whit looks more like the kind of guy who’d go chasing bad guys around the world, rather than an eccentric looking inventor. And I like Connie’s new hair. It’s so chic. And Eugene looks more like a married person should look. And it’s great to see Wooton! The new family looks like they’re going to be a lot of fun! I love Odyssey. Thanks for all of your hard work!

    Dear SPY,
    In the episode “Do or Diet” Whit, Wooton, and Bernard do go on a diet, with Connie as their weight loss coach. I LOVE that episode. I also like Wooton’s “Ode to macaroni”


  • LARISSA on March 1st, 2010 - 8:13pm

     

    I like a lot of the changes but not all of them.I think Whit does not look like himself and Eugene does not look nerdy enough.But I do like the Connie,the way she looks now,with more cool looking cloths and hair.I’m also looking forward to future Adventures in odyssey programs.

    John,
    My favorite character is Connie, the old one.


  • olivia :) on March 4th, 2010 - 2:19pm

     

    I don’t like the new characters. Also, even though this is SO late, I agree with brocky when he said that he wants the old odyssey back.
    The oldest one’s were the funniest! Like the one where they said, “THE COCOO BIRD’S IN THE BANANA TREE!” I loved those ones. I miss the old characters, but I understand that they grew older.
    I don’t think the new characters are very good. I mean, the artist was a good artist, but they don’t seem like the characters I know.


  • olivia :) on March 4th, 2010 - 2:22pm

     

    I agree with SPY. They look so skinny. I don’t understand why cartoons have to be so thin. :(

    Why did you change Connie and Eugene? But I do LOVE Connie’s new shirt! And I don’t think Eugene is going to be funny anymore in the new episodes. And Whit is supposed to be like a walrus. Now he’s as thin as a pencil. Connie’s hair is too big. I liked it better when it was in a pony tail. I do like the new family in the show.

    Character Reviews P. 1
    by Noah M.

    Mr. Whittaker. He’s nice, and I like the new detailed drawing of him, which just seems a little more lifelike than before. It will take a little bit of getting used to, as Odyssey goes into it’s next generation, but I think that this picture of Mr. Whittaker matches up with the voice talent of Andre Stojka. If i can seperate the future Odyssey from the past, I’ll be okay.

    Connie. I love her. That’s pretty much all there is to it. (See P. 2)


  • Odyssey#1Fan on April 8th, 2010 - 12:30pm

     

    Character Reviews P. 2

    Connie (Cont.) I love her hair style and new clothes, and I totally think this is what she needs to look like. You can hear how her voice has changed over the course of 20 years, and it was a nice change.

    Eugene. I just really don’t know what to say. I’ve been listening to Odyssey for 8 years (2/3 of my life), and Eugene has remained the same. With his new haircut, I just don’t think the series will be the same. I’m kind of going into Take it from the Top (See P. 3)


  • Odyssey#1Fan on April 8th, 2010 - 12:33pm

     

    Character Reviews P. 3

    Eugene (Cont.) with the idea that it is a semi-spin-off (which it sort of is) of the original AIO. I’m sure I’ll learn to get used to it, but I am sad.
    Wooton. Of course, the ever-lovely Wooton was drawn EXACTLY how I pictured him, and I do think Gary Locke really did good on him. My younger sister gets the clubhouse magazine, and I enjoy seeing his picture every month. Instead of ruining my favorite character, they made him much better, and i have no complaints. (See P.4


  • Odyssey#1Fan on April 8th, 2010 - 12:36pm

     

    Character Reviews P. 4
    Olivia. I love Olivia’s picture, and I think she looks great. It gave me a nice picture to have in my mind as I listened to Hope Levy do her part in Odyssey. I really think Gary Locke does a terrific job in matching voices to pictures.
    Matthew. I love matthew, I really do. He’s exactly like me, and I love his picture. of the 2 pictures I’ve seen him in, I like him, and I’m complaint-free on him! Zach Callison is a good actor, and I like that, too. (See P. 5)

    Whew! Lots to say.
    Camilla. Her picture is cool, and I like the character, and i love the attention to detail Gary Locke uses. The only Problem i have with camilla is the actor… She’s not 100% awesome, but I wonder if they did that on purposeto bring back the feel of the show’s older days… Dunno..
    David. Though his picture looks a little short, squat and cartoony, I think he looks fine. Nice to have an image running in my mind on what he looks like. (See P. 6)

    As much work as I’m putting into this, I hope this gets approved :-)

    Eva. no problems. Picture looks good, like her mother (Episode: Grandma’s Visit), got no problems. Like her Spanish side, as I am taking up spanish in homeschool this year. I like her. Like the Parker family. Excited to see what they’ll do in Album 52!

    So concludes my overview. I am a little sad to see an essential part of my life changed, but all in all, I think if i think of it seperately, I’ll live.
