Paul Herlinger: 1929-2010
Goodbye, our friend.


Paul Herlinger was a beloved member of the Adventures in Odyssey team for more than thirteen years as he provided the voice of John Avery Whittaker. He passed away on February 2, 2010.


Paul said of his time in Odyssey: “It has given me a chance to work in the profession I started in as a high school kid and still love most…radio! At the same time, I work with a lot of extremely talented and dedicated people in producing programs that have so much meaning for so many people.”

Paul started recording radio programs when he was in high school and had a career that lasted over 60 years.

Paul started recording radio programs when he was in high school and had a career that lasted over 60 years.

Paul's favorite episodes were "Clara" and "Silent Night." He said, "Both shows are not only very touching emotionally, but they also give Whit a lot more dimension."
Paul appeared in more than 200 Adventures in Odyssey episodes.

    Wow! Thats cool!

    Hey Bob and Jessie! I have been an Odyssey fan since I was
    eight years old! I’m so sorry to hear the news about Paul
    Herlinger. I will be praying for his family. He did such a
    good job playing Whit and I cannot wait to hear the new episodes for album 51.

    I liked two of the podcast theme songs but I could only vote for one so I was wondering if you could use the theme that comes in second as “The Latest News” theme. Also that’s so sad that Paul H. died. He was so good and brought so much life to the character of Whit. Last of all, I LOVE the new AIO Theme. It is so much bigger than the old one. I feel just like Jesse in that when I heard the theme I felt like I was hangliding over mountains.


  • Shaz on February 10th, 2010 - 1:20pm

     

    I like them in this order: number 3, number 2, number 1. I think number 3 should become the new theme for the podcast.


  • molly on February 10th, 2010 - 1:26pm

     

    Ummm not a big fan of the new theme… It doesn’t sound like odyssey. The other two sounded a lot alike, but this one.. I don’t like it, I’m sorry. All these changes make odyssey seem like a completely different show! I’m sure all the newer fans will love it though, so good job.

    I’m so sad that Paul Herlinger died! He will be very dearly missed! :'(


  • Tatiana on February 10th, 2010 - 1:44pm

     

    I don’t like the last 1. but i LOVE the others!!


  • trulyblessed on February 10th, 2010 - 1:46pm

     

    WE LOVE/MISS YOU PAUL!


  • Marissa on February 10th, 2010 - 2:27pm

     

    I voted for the 2nd one. I really liked all of them. But I thought the 2nd one fit the most. Thanks John Campbell for the awsome music! Great job on the new Odyssey theme! Thanks Bob and Jessie for always having a great podcast!


  • Leanne on February 10th, 2010 - 2:33pm

     

    Vote for number 1! Number 3 has been used on Odyssey episodes before like, “sounds like a mystery” Number 1 is definitely the best! That’s really sad that Paul Herlinger died. I don’t think Odyssey can ever be the same with a different Whit. Everybody will miss him a lot. Anyway, that was a neat podcast!


  • Snoopy on February 10th, 2010 - 2:42pm

     

    Awesome! For those of you who don’t know, Paul Herlinger went to be with the Lord, last week.


  • Christian on February 10th, 2010 - 2:43pm

     

    Odyssey at its best! Love the new theme song! as for the podcast, #1! I love it! Can’t wait for Album 51!


  • Logan on February 10th, 2010 - 2:57pm

     

    I LOVE the new theme song!! Can’t wait for album 51!! I am really sad that Paul Herlinger died. I will miss him.


  • Semaj on February 10th, 2010 - 4:06pm

     

    I am NOT Going to reveal my name! I love AIO and I can’t wait for Album 51 to come out! I don’t think Connie should marry Mitch! She wouldn’t have time with him!


  • Semaj on February 10th, 2010 - 4:08pm

     

    Becha can’t guess my name!


  • Leanne on February 10th, 2010 - 4:36pm

     

    I do kinda like the new AIO theme, but it doesn’t seem as “Odyssey-ish” as the other ones, if that makes any sense. I guess its just another sign that Odyssey is really changing. It should b pretty cool, though. I’m glad that the podcast is updating their theme song. Vote for #1! 1 and 2 are practically the same, the only one I don’t like is 3.


  • adenira on February 10th, 2010 - 4:46pm

     

    The new theme song was okay but I liked the old one better. That`s really sad that Paul died I will be praying for his family. And all of his friends because I know he must of had alot. :(


  • Paul on February 10th, 2010 - 4:49pm

     

    GO NO. 3!


  • Nate on February 10th, 2010 - 5:06pm

     

    I don’t care that the 3rd theme has been used. It was DEFINITELY THE BEST!


  • bim on February 10th, 2010 - 5:11pm

     

    Good podcast! I’m so sorry to hear about Paul Herlinger. My thoughts are with his family. Goodbye Paul you were a great Mr. Whit


  • hannah on February 10th, 2010 - 5:15pm

     

    he died? it just seemed like yesterday he was talking on on podcasts and doing odyssey! that is so sad…i’ll miss you paul!


  • emily on February 10th, 2010 - 5:21pm

     

    SO COOL!


  • vote on February 10th, 2010 - 5:33pm

     

    I like number 3 the best but I think Odyssey should keep the old Odyssey emblem. I don’t like the new one at all. It is very bland without and color but red. I think anyone that thinks this also should put it in their comment and maybe they will change it. PLEASE DO ODYSSEY STAFF


  • vote on February 10th, 2010 - 5:37pm

     

    I like number 3 the best but I think Odyssey should keep the old Odyssey emblem. I don’t like the new one. It is very bland without any color but red. I also think that the new theme is ok but does not sound like Odyssey with all the bells and stuff. It sounds like it is getting modernized and not a small town any more.


  • catlover on February 10th, 2010 - 5:38pm

     

    I think that the the old theme was better, but I can tell you put a lot of work into it Mr. Campbell, thanks. I’m really sorry that Paul Herlinger passed away. He was great! He’s in the best place he could be right now. I’ll be praying.


  • Will(iam) on February 10th, 2010 - 5:47pm

     

    I really like the new Odyssey theme song. It has the same “Dah,dah;Dah de dum dum dum!” that the other themes had. I’m very sad that Paul Herlinger died, but I am glad that the Odyssey writers found a new Whit before it happened.


  • amy on February 10th, 2010 - 6:02pm

     

    Wow. Lots of changes. I like the new theme song for Odyssey. I can feel the adventure in it! :)

    That’s sad about Paul H. He was great! I feel sad for his family, but I am glad that he is in heaven.

    -Amy


  • zawicki1 on February 10th, 2010 - 6:10pm

     

    I like #3. I miss you Paul. I also wish the original AIO theme was the current theme.


  • emily on February 10th, 2010 - 6:10pm

     

    Please give my sympathy to Katie leigh,I sure she was very close to Paul Herlinger since they were working together so often. Seriosly though, MAKE SURE SHE GETS THIS MESSAGE ( PLEASE!)


  • REBECCA(12) on February 10th, 2010 - 6:27pm

     

    oookkkkk….let me put it this way…..i really like the OLD odssey BETTER that the “new” one…..”why not leave welll enough alone????”…(From The secret Roomz)…..


  • symplyme on February 10th, 2010 - 6:41pm

     

    I dont like the new theme very much. it’s just way to different… So far there are 2 changes that I like of all the changes you have done.


  • SAM on February 10th, 2010 - 6:48pm

     

    We’re going to miss you Paul.

  • Jaguar J on February 10th, 2010 - 11:20pm

     

    Sorry to hear about Paul Herlinger. He was my Mr. Whitaker since I didn’t really get to hear much of Hal Smith’s work until later. Both did their part in creating the character of Mr. Whit to many people, I admire them both. I think the new Odyssey theme is good, I’m open to change as long as it’s moving in the right direction–forward. I think for the poscast, number one is the best fit.

    God Bless

Lord, thank you for everything that Paul did, bless him & thank you for letting him be such a wonderful influence on all of us. I love you & will miss you more than you can imagine, Paul!

  • Christian A. on February 11th, 2010 - 12:32pm

     

    I was kind of disappointed at the choices for the new podcast theme song. The new AIO theme song is great though! As for the podcast, the songs just weren’t bold enough; I actually like the old beginning better. BTW, the CHRISTIAN underneath whom I am commenting, are you the same Christian A (without the period) who has been talking to me on the Odyssey Scoop?


  • Jo on February 11th, 2010 - 12:42pm

     

    I like #3.


  • Jojo on February 11th, 2010 - 1:01pm

     

    i know that AIO was trying to acquire a new look ( & sound!) and they certainly did it!

    AIO ROCKS!!!!!

    Great job again!!!

    It’s so sad that P. H. died. I know everybody will miss him!!!!!


  • joHN on February 11th, 2010 - 1:06pm

     

    thats so cool. im realy sad that paul died.


  • Shaz on February 11th, 2010 - 1:11pm

     

    If I had a say in it, I would like the new AIO theme song to be the one from the newer AIO videos, where you see the Strata Flyer flying to Whit’s End. I like that theme music.


  • mabel on February 11th, 2010 - 1:32pm

     

    I vote for the 3rd one as the new podcast song. :-) The new AIO theme sounds “bold” indeed. I feel like I’m flying through the air, too. And I send my condolensences to Paul’s family. He will be dearly missed!


  • Brittini P on February 11th, 2010 - 1:57pm

     

    How Sad. paul Died. AIO is going to Be so different. 1st It was Hal 2nd It Was Paul I Wonder Who Is Going To Be The Next WHIT? The podcast Was Pretty Neat I Voted For ??????? It’s A Secret

  • Anonymous on February 11th, 2010 - 2:45pm

     

    I really don’t think odyssey will be the same without paul. I wish they would keep the old theme song, because everthing is changing so much. does anyone know how he died?


  • Cassie on February 11th, 2010 - 2:52pm

     

    The first two were very good. I didn’t like the third new podcast song at all. But if I had to pick one I would pick the second one.


  • Billy on February 11th, 2010 - 3:07pm

     

    Man, when my sister, who works in the International department at Focus, told me that the next album would come out in about 2 years, I thought it would be forever! & now its only a month away! Yay!

    It was a pretty tough decision picking which theme song, they were all so good!


  • Allie on February 11th, 2010 - 3:16pm

     

    That’s really sad about Mr. Herlinger! At least we can know that he is in a better place now. The new Odyssey theme is really cool! However it will take some getting used to with the slower beats and all. Well, I’m going to go vote on my favorite theme for the podcast now.


  • Ann on February 11th, 2010 - 3:21pm

     

    I liked number 3 for the Podcast theme. I was sad to hear about the passing of Paul Herlinger. He was truly a great actor.

    Keep it up AIO!!


  • Jos on February 11th, 2010 - 4:29pm

     

    I’m looking at the picture of the new Connie and an old picture of her. Her eyes, which used to be green, are now brown! Does she wear colored contacts or something now?


  • Jos on February 11th, 2010 - 4:32pm

     

    Theme song #3 seemed too much like the old one. #2 WAS THE BEST!!!!

    Goodbye Mr. Herlinger. We’ll miss you. You was one of the best actors in the history of Odyssey. We’ll always remember you.


  • Leanne on February 11th, 2010 - 4:52pm

     

    Sorry to say this but why did you have to change everything good about odyssey! Its been such a big adjustment for me to get used to the new voice of whit, but why change the characters looks and the theme as well! Now i can’t even listen to AIO without crying :(


  • jill on February 11th, 2010 - 5:01pm

    ITS OK BUT IT KIND OF SOUNDS LIKE A CHRISTMAS CAROL I DONT REALLY LIKE THE LITTLE BELL SOUNDS IN THE BACKROUND. I LIKE THE EXCITMENT AT THE END, BUT THE THEME IN THE BEGENING is a bit slow. IM GLAD THE THEME’S THE SAME! Good job!


  • Doll on February 11th, 2010 - 7:23pm

    We will miss you Paul. Ohhh and p.s I agree with everyone out there who says connie should get married. I mean come on they we close sooo many times and Its getting boring!


  • Abbie on February 11th, 2010 - 9:57pm

     

    i really like the new theme. it has a lot of excitment, and it still has some of the old odyssey left. No negative comments here, definitely. Oh…. and i’m sorry 2 hear about Paul Herlinger. I was really really upset when they said that. We’ll always miss him. and about the options, #- ;) Give yah a hint- I don’t care if it sounds like an old one! lol


  • Wendy on February 11th, 2010 - 10:42pm

     

    I’m sad about all the changes with Adventures In Odyssey. It doesn’t sound like it is going to be the same show anymore. The new Whit doesn’t sounds more like Bernard to me. And the new theme doesn’t make me think of AIO.


  • Samantha on February 12th, 2010 - 12:56am

     

    Samantha – I was shocked when I read that Mr. Herlinger had died. I really starting crying! Odyssey has taught me so many good lessons & Paul was the one who taught them. Well, technically, Whit taught them, but Paul was Whit’s voice.

    Lorena – Goodbye Paul Herlinger. U will be missed greatly. I’m praying 4 your family & AIO.


  • billy on February 12th, 2010 - 3:41am

     

    Wow, I knew Paul was getting on (after all that’s why he retired) but I didn’t think it would be so soon! (I havan’t listened to the podcast yet because my computers having problems I’m only speaking from what I read in the comments) I’m now filled with both admaration of his foresight, and sadness at his loss, but the person I realy feel sorry for is the new Whit! who is now following on 2 awsome predesecors!


  • billy on February 12th, 2010 - 3:45am

     

    filling Hal Smith’s or Paul Herlinger’s shoes would be bad enough but both!?! at the same time?!? and yet still making the character your own!?! and this isn’t like James Bond either this character has meaning! well I feel for ya man! RIP Hal & Paul and God Bless…..whatever the new guy’s name is I forget.


  • billy on February 12th, 2010 - 4:07am

     

    now I’ve finally been able to listen to the podcast so here’s my thoughts:

    1: it’s still the Adventures in Odyssey theme and that’s realy all that matters to me!

    2: I don’t know, I don’t think any of these themes are as good as the original, but I guess I’ll choose B!


  • MAINE on February 12th, 2010 - 7:28am

     

    I like #3 the most


  • Whit Fan on February 12th, 2010 - 8:45am

     

    We will have to see how all of the changes fit together


  • Whit Fan on February 12th, 2010 - 9:00am

     

    I’m done making assumptions about how good the changes are. Its how good they blend the changes along with everything else that decides how good the show is. I’m sorry about Paul. Every actor that plays Whit adds something to the character. The first actor showed how warm and Grandfatherly Whit is. Paul showed that and that even Whit makes mistakes. We will have to see what the new actor does. Now I know that the actor does not write the script but I think the dialogue is inspired by the actors.


  • emily on February 12th, 2010 - 10:34am

     

    The old odessy theme was MUCH better.


  • emily on February 12th, 2010 - 10:36am

     

    Mr. Herlinger, my friend Micayla and I think you were the best Whit ever.


  • odysseyfreak on February 12th, 2010 - 10:53am

     

    my mom even cried about paul’s death! i am so sad, but at least they already got a replacement for paul because he quit the show. the new aio theme song is TOO COOL!!!


  • Kim on February 12th, 2010 - 11:46am

     

    # 2 has my vote.
    The adventures in odyssey theme is one of those “timeless” themes that really sends the listener to the Odyssey of their imagination. I’m not sure how I’m liking the slower intro to the series…it makes me feel kinda sad for some reason, in comparison to the upbeat tempos of the past.
    So sad to hear of Paul Herlingers passing. He was a wonderful “Whit”. He gave so much heart to the role. We’ll miss him.


  • John on February 12th, 2010 - 11:49am

     

    I L-O-V-E-D the new Theme Song! I also loved the not used theme song. It sounds like red. Also, it is a good thing Adventures in Odyssey decided to replace Paul with Andre. Just in the nick of time! Also, when are you going to tell us all of the AIOA51 plots?


  • joe on February 12th, 2010 - 12:54pm

     

    I liked number 3 and adventures in odysset is the best.


  • nature lover on February 12th, 2010 - 1:03pm

     

    I like #2. Sorry about Paul Herlinger.


  • daniel on February 12th, 2010 - 1:09pm

     

    Thats sad about Paul. It’s kinda a miracle that they got a new voice for Whit before Paul died.


  • Lindsey S. on February 12th, 2010 - 2:19pm

     

    I voted for number 3! The other two sound too much like the new theme song. Also, No. 3 sounds newsy and that is exactly what the podcast is, Odyssey news.

    (I live in Texas, where it never snows, and it snowed 6 inches yesterday!!!) I feel like I was Alix in Snow Day, when all the schools were closed and everyone got out in the snow and played. I am just glad that no one chased me all over town like Rodney chased Alix. :-)


  • harpazo on February 12th, 2010 - 2:33pm

     

    I voted for #2. And I like the new odyssey theme song. I agree the Paul Herlinger was a great MR. Whitaker and I will miss him.


  • harpazo on February 12th, 2010 - 2:35pm

     

    Everyone! Vote for number 2! Go number 2!


  • dylan fan on February 12th, 2010 - 2:49pm

     

    Tell Katie Leigh that I will be praying for her, the Herlinger family, and the Odyssey crew. But it is cool that Paul is now with Jesus, Hal Smith, and so on.


  • Leanne S. on February 12th, 2010 - 3:40pm

     

    Vote Number 1! I also agree with the person who said they wish AIO would change their logo. The new one is really BORING. Change it back please!
    Note: I am not the Leanne who posted like the middle of these comments. I’m the one who posted at the top of them.


  • MAtt on February 12th, 2010 - 4:07pm

     

    Another great podcast. All the new music is great! I’ll miss hearing Paul Herlinger on AIO, the new Whit has big shoes to fill.


  • Jake on February 12th, 2010 - 4:18pm

     

    Number 3 was the best! Number’s 1 and 2 sounded too much alike! And that’s amazing Lindsey!! I’ve lived in texas since i was born, but i moved to idaho last year. I saw on a news report that this is the biggest snow fall in Dallas’s history!! (1 foot (12 inches))


  • hadassah on February 12th, 2010 - 4:21pm

     

    The 2nd still rocks ,but do we have to have the 3rd! P-)


  • sharon on February 12th, 2010 - 4:27pm

     

    Very cool. By the way, did the cartoon characters of Connie and Eugene get a make-over? And it looks like Whit lost weight – LOL…

    I’ll miss hearing Mr. Herlinger as Whit too :(


  • alicia on February 12th, 2010 - 5:49pm

     

    I have a question.i went to whitsend.org/podcast but how do you vote?anyway, i agree with you harpazo, i like #2,but i still wish you would keep the old theme.


  • anna on February 12th, 2010 - 6:04pm

     

    I love whit!!!!


  • Beckie on February 12th, 2010 - 6:07pm

     

    I really liked the 3rd one. It makes it sound exciting and bold, and the other ones sound way to much like the Odyssey theme song. I LOVE the new theme song! I completely agree with Jessie and I felt like I was flying, too. Way to go, Odyssey! :)


  • avery on February 12th, 2010 - 6:09pm

     

    I’m really sorry about Mr. Herlinger. He was obviously a great Christian man. We’ll miss him so much in the next shows. How can we replace Mr. Whittaker a second time?


  • Victoria on February 12th, 2010 - 6:28pm

     

    I will all ways miss paul. so sad that he left. :( I voted for #2 its the best! I LUV ODYSSEY!


  • anna on February 12th, 2010 - 6:47pm

     

    WE will miss you so much Mr Herlinger! your mr whitiker voice was the best! :)


  • a on February 12th, 2010 - 6:48pm

     

    Thats So cool Lindsey S!


  • Paul h on February 12th, 2010 - 8:33pm

     

    Just to let you know I’m not Paul Herlinger, just a fan of AIO. I like #3 beccause it is like the original theme song. I sorry that he died. He was a good man. In heaven, he can be 26 years old. Also tell Brock he’s(no offense Bob and Jesse) that he is funny and great!


  • sam on February 12th, 2010 - 10:00pm

     

    i like 3


  • Q94 Radio on February 12th, 2010 - 10:44pm

     

    What? They changed the Odyssey theme music?


  • Kris on February 12th, 2010 - 10:50pm

     

    I voted for #3


  • Christian A on February 12th, 2010 - 10:50pm

     

    Well, Christian A. (with a period), I, periodless Christian A, am, in fact, the one who’s been talking to you online. =) And I think we’re around the same age as well. How cool is that! I did see someone named Christian who’s comment is above yours on this page. However, he (or she) doesn’t use an “A” after thier name like you and I do, so no that wasn’t me. I usually use an “A”. This is the first comment of mine on this particular podcast page.


  • Christian A on February 12th, 2010 - 10:53pm

     

    I like the new AIO theme song. It’s different, but I like it =). Good job John Camble, and thanks for all the hard work!!! I pray that God will continue to bless the AIO team.


  • Caity on February 12th, 2010 - 11:44pm

     

    I think that there are a lot of changes going on. It will be hard to get used to. I hope that the quality and lessons of the show will stay the same though. I still listen to them every night and find that even though I have listened to them before they still make me smile and laugh. I have listened to other shows before and they just don’t have the same quality. Nice work AIO team. I will miss the old Whit. His voice was like the theme of Odyssey. He will be missed. PS:Connie should get married


  • beckie on February 13th, 2010 - 6:42am

     

    I totally agree with you, Lindsey!


  • Lightning on February 13th, 2010 - 7:59am

     

    Let Bernard brake a window.


  • emily on February 13th, 2010 - 8:39am

     

    I was wondering, is Campbell college named after John Campball?


  • COURTNEY on February 13th, 2010 - 10:00am

     

    2 or 3!


  • josh on February 13th, 2010 - 10:50am

     

    the theme song sounds hollow. Not a fan of the theme song at all. We love you Paul!


  • madison on February 13th, 2010 - 11:18am

     

    I cried when I heard the original theme, it’s just so timeless and it brings back a flood of bittersweet memories, but the new theme has a bit of a remeniscent feel to it.


  • jAMES on February 13th, 2010 - 11:23am

     

    Paul was a great man. Whit is my favorite character. I can’t wait for album 51!!


  • jAMES on February 13th, 2010 - 11:28am

     

    Even though Paul is dead he is in heaven.


  • #1Odysseyfan on February 13th, 2010 - 1:22pm

     

    Uh. Semaj… James… Nice try :-)

    I will greatly miss Paul herlinger. he was my favorite voice of whit, and he will be missed. Many loved him… *sniff* *sniff*

    I don’t like many things about the “new” odyssey, but I do like the theme song.

    NUMBER 2 TOTALLY!


  • UNC on February 13th, 2010 - 1:33pm

     

    First of all my prayers go out to Paul Herlinger’s family. His presence on Odyssey ment so much.

    I loved the new theme song! And even though its a bit off subject, I totally love the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre Theme song!!!!!


  • So Joe on February 13th, 2010 - 2:54pm

     

    PAUL HERLINGER! im actually tearing up… that CAN’T HAPPEN. I’m going to miss him alot. I was hoping that someway we could petition for him to come back because I do not like the new Whit. Please let his family know my condolences. By the way i vote for #3… It sounds different than the New oddysey theme song (which the other 2 do).


  • Aiden on February 13th, 2010 - 5:13pm

     

    The new Odyssey them ROCKS!


  • Anonymous on February 13th, 2010 - 5:19pm

     

    W…..O…..W I CANT BELIVE IT SO MANY CHANGES BUT FIRST I CANT BELIVE PAUL DIED I ALMOST CRIED AND COULDENT STOP BUT THINK HOW HIS FAMILIES DOING AND CONNIE AND THE WHOLE AIO STAFF….MAN.. IDIDNT LIKE THE NEW CHANGES OF THE NEW VOICE OF WHIT BUT AFTER HEARING IT IT ALMOST SOUNDED LIKE PAUL SO IM GOING TO HAVE TO ACCEPT THEM AND I VOTE FOR # 3 SORRY HARPOZO THIS ONR IS GOOD
    :) SO HEAR WE GO ALBUM 51 I SND MY PRAYERS TO THE HERLINGER FAMILY AND AIO STAFF


  • Ashley K on February 13th, 2010 - 6:30pm

     

    I vote for option 3. I think that everyone should vote for option 3.


  • Ashley K on February 13th, 2010 - 6:31pm

     

    I liked the old Odyssey theme much better.


  • odysseylover on February 13th, 2010 - 7:30pm

     

    #3 all the way!!! I CANNOT believe that paul died!!!!! I cried so hard! but as my mom said. he knew. i don’t really like the new theme song. and they shoulda made all the changes in stages. not all at once. I’m REEEEEEEEEEALLY gonna miss the old odyssey. :'(


  • austin on February 13th, 2010 - 7:45pm

     

    I like #3. I wish Paul hadn’t died. The new Whit just doesn’t sound…well…like Whit, I guess. By the way, we just got 3 inches of snow here in Georgia. That never happens! (;


  • lexi on February 13th, 2010 - 9:32pm

     

    I’m soooo sorry that Paul died. I looked up on youtube the owl on winnie the pooh (voice of the new Mr. Whitaker) and he sounds a lot like Paul. I know Paul can never be replaced, but I know the new guy will do a GREAT job as well.


  • AREM on February 14th, 2010 - 7:36am

     

    I SO agree with u, Harpazo & every1 else who likes # 2!!!! That’s the BEST!!! It sounds new & modern, but has the old song mixed in somehow. G-R-E-A-T!!!

    I’m SO sorry that Mr. Herlinger died. He was my fav actor on Odyssey. I miss him & whenever I hear him in old Odyssey episodes, I feel hurt. ;-( :-( Goodbye Mr. Herlinger. When is the memorial going 2 be put on the podcast?


  • Anonymous on February 14th, 2010 - 10:28am

     

    Paul died! nooooo. I’ll miss him. :(


  • natalia on February 14th, 2010 - 10:56am

     

    pretty cool theme.i am so glad they’re going to change it!


  • Joy on February 14th, 2010 - 11:12am

     

    I like number two the best. Personally I liked the old one better than the new options. Just my take. :-)


  • meg on February 14th, 2010 - 12:24pm

     

    Dear Odyssey,

    I’m sorry about Mr. Herlinger. I think Mr. Adneray will do a great job.

    That is not why I am posting this however.

    I think I know who can take over for Mr. Walker. Is the guy who played Connie’s Uncle Joe still alive? I think if he is, he could play Tom Ryale! His voice sounds like Mr. Walker’s voice. All you have to do is get him to southern it up alittle.

    Thouse who read this and think it is a good idea, please post the letters P.H.W.E.

    Love,

    Meg


  • Mikayla on February 14th, 2010 - 12:55pm

     

    NUMBER THREE (3) IS THE BEST! VOTE #3!


  • Idance4jesus on February 14th, 2010 - 1:40pm

     

    No.#3 is from the episode “Sounds like a Mystery.” I do NOT like that one.
    I didn’t enjoy No.#2, just wasn’t for me!
    I voted for No.#1, I really like it!! Simple, but classy, exactly what AIO needs.


  • Idance4jesus on February 14th, 2010 - 1:43pm

     

    Daniel, He resigned because he knew that his health was failing. I am so thankful for him not wanting to hurt so many fans hearts. He resigned because he knew he wouldn’t be around much longer.


  • austin on February 14th, 2010 - 2:00pm

     

    :0


  • austin on February 14th, 2010 - 2:03pm

     

    I changed my mind. I like 2 better now. Is there a way to change your vote? :!


  • MAINE on February 14th, 2010 - 2:35pm

     

    from everyone’s posts, it looks like #2 & #3 are going to be close


  • alicia on February 14th, 2010 - 2:52pm

     

    never mind.you don’t have to answer my voting question. i figured it out.thanks anyway!god bless you.


  • fiddlestix on February 14th, 2010 - 3:25pm

     

    I think it’s great that aio is updating the pictures of connie, eugene, and all the others, but it seems like everything is changing at once!first the new Whit, then the new characters, then new pictures of the characters and now new music. It might be a little too much all at once.but i look forward to the new episodes that teach the same great values:)


  • David on February 14th, 2010 - 4:02pm

     

    I love the third option, and my little sister does too! I really hope it becomes the next theme song for the podcast.


  • Rach on February 14th, 2010 - 4:26pm

     

    I definitely like number 3 the best! The other two sound too much like the new AIO theme song…


  • jASMINE V. on February 14th, 2010 - 6:40pm

     

    I REALY LIKE NUMBER 1 AND 2. TO ME IT’S KINDOF LIKE SAYING OR TELLING PEOPLE”WELCOME TO THE ADVENTURES IN ODDESSEY PODCAST OR CATCH UP ON THE LATEST NEWS OR DATABAS”. BUT I ALSO LIKE NO. 3. ITS GOOD FOR WHEN ANYTHING EXITING HAPPENS. BUT I LIKE ALL THREE.:)


  • Jess on February 14th, 2010 - 7:23pm

     

    I have to admit, I am a bit disapointed with all the changes. It doesn’t feel like the same Odyssey. Even though the theme is cool, I think it would be better to keep it the same it was, for tradition sake


  • Anonymous on February 14th, 2010 - 8:17pm

     

    Paul was a good voice for Whit. Andre isn’t really a good voice for the character.


  • Julie on February 14th, 2010 - 8:22pm

     

    I’m for the 2nd one =D
    luv the new odyssey theme song

  • erh on February 15th, 2010 - 11:08am

  • anna on February 15th, 2010 - 3:47pm

     

    mr Herlingers voice was the best and so was Hal Smith. we miss them both. they made really good Mr Whitikers their voices were the Beat.
    And to Meg: i say P. H. W.E


  • Meg on February 15th, 2010 - 4:09pm

  • lu on February 15th, 2010 - 7:35pm

     

    Mr. Campbell,
    You create wonderful music! Without it, oddysey would not be as exciting. Some audio series are missing a lot of music… maybe that’s why they are not really my favorite. Keep up the good work!

    Lu


  • pie is good on February 15th, 2010 - 8:25pm

     

    YES! Finally an interview with John C.! I have waited for this for a LONGtime because I LOVE music. The new Odyssey show theme is WAY better than the old one. it is less cheesy in a way. I voted for podcast theme 3. So sad about Paul. He rocked.


  • Ryme on February 15th, 2010 - 9:15pm

     

    #2


  • Kurt on February 16th, 2010 - 5:07am

     

    Sorry to hear about Mr. H. On the theme songs, I actually liked the original better – it’s fun and upbeat, but I voted for #3 – definitely better than the first two. In any case, keep up the good work, Mr. Campbell!


  • Grant on February 16th, 2010 - 10:18am

     

    P.H.W.E. I vote for Parley Baar to repace Walker as voice of Tom. Though it probably won’t happen.


  • anna on February 16th, 2010 - 12:19pm

     

    opps i ment to say in the comment abouve that his voice was the best not the beat. Sorry! ;0


  • jess on February 16th, 2010 - 12:24pm

     

    Three was used in “Think on these Things” at the begining. (Sorry for spelling Begining wrong)


  • alayan on February 16th, 2010 - 1:03pm

     

    I think that the new music them for Odyssey is great!
    I hope the crew in the studio is blessed by what Mr Hal and
    Mr Paul have been doing in their lives and find a new voice for Whit.
    I wanted to let ya’ll know that I’ve been a fan since I was six and I’m still ahving a great tome listening to the podcasts and radio shows online!


  • Micah on February 16th, 2010 - 1:36pm

     

    I like the last one it is cool. That is so sad about Paul H. We will miss him.


  • Leanne S. on February 16th, 2010 - 6:56pm

     

    Just vote for anything but #3! Go Odyssey!


  • Rebekah .b on February 16th, 2010 - 9:21pm

     

    PAUL IS DEAD! NO!
    I WAS SO SHOKED WHEN I FOUND OUT!
    I STILL CAN HARDLEY BELEIVE IT!! WHO WILL BE NEXT WHIT?
    I WILL PRAY HARD OUT FOR YOU ODYSSEY CREW!


  • Rebekah .b on February 16th, 2010 - 9:29pm

    Paul .h (r.i.p) is the voise of Whit!


  • Rebekah .b on February 16th, 2010 - 9:47pm

     

    i vote no. 3


  • pIERROFAMILY on February 16th, 2010 - 11:32pm

     

    May God Bless you all through these many changes,
    and that His Kingdom continue to grow with each new episode of Adventures in Odyssey.
    The new characters look good – although have to agree with other’s posts that the color of Connie’s eyes were green, and that Eugene’s were blue…however, SO VERY thankful you changed his hair color from orange! :) Whit looks very distinguished, a lot like I have always imagined him.
    Thanks for sending out God’s wonderful message that Jesus Loves us ALL.


  • pIERROFAMILY on February 17th, 2010 - 12:16am

     

    Theme #1 is most beautiful with the tingling bells, however, this could then be immediately followed by the dramatic bold music of Theme #3 to end as one entire Theme #4 – together they are a perfect introduction to each Adventures in Odyssey show!
    Although Theme #2 is also nice.

    We know you all are very creative artists and can actually maybe work in the best mixture of the selections for the new theme song for Odyssey! :)


  • pIERROFAMILY on February 17th, 2010 - 12:24am

     

    …begin with theme #1 then add in theme #3 right before the last chord of Theme # 1… = PERFECT INTRO!


  • Jess on February 17th, 2010 - 7:22am

     

    Grant, Parely Baer died in 97


  • jacob on February 17th, 2010 - 9:53am

     

    Paul herlinger was the best voice I wonder why God had him die its just so sad!


  • Jacob Gascho on February 17th, 2010 - 9:54am

     

    Hey guise love the new Odeyessy T-H-E-M-E!!!
    And for the others that look at the comments,
    I just want them to know that I think the podcast theme option 2 is the B-E-S-T!!!!


  • Abbie on February 17th, 2010 - 11:26am

     

    That wood be awesome!


  • jacob on February 17th, 2010 - 12:19pm

     

    I vote #3 that rocks!Paul Herlinger was the only person I liked I think he’s better than Katie Leigh!


  • connie on February 17th, 2010 - 1:45pm

     

    I have listened 2 Adventures in Odyssey ever since I was 5 yrs old!!! Know I am 13!!!

  • alicia on February 17th, 2010 - 3:14pm

     

    hey connie!we’re the same age!but I’ve only been listening to odyssey for 4 years.


  • Dan on February 17th, 2010 - 5:39pm

     

    I think Andre sounds more like bernard also. Needs to deepen voice and talk slower.


  • Abbie on February 18th, 2010 - 7:18am

     

    definitely #3. This one sounds very adventuruous, and not to to much like the already theme for aio.


  • Anonymous on February 18th, 2010 - 7:34am

     

    Im really sad! He was a great whit! I vote #1


  • LYDIA on February 18th, 2010 - 8:15am

     

    I voted for #3. the other ones didn’t sound exciting enough to me. i like the new AIO theme song. i almost wish some of this stuff didn’t have to change (like the logo) but i like the new theme.


  • lukerman on February 18th, 2010 - 11:29am

     

    I CRYED when I heard paul died!):

  • jacob on February 18th, 2010 - 11:53am

     

    could you tell me who you are Connie I mean your real name I know it sounds weird I’m just curious.


  • jacob on February 18th, 2010 - 12:10pm

     

    I know that Paul H. is whits voice I hear that at the end of each episode.


  • Peter on February 18th, 2010 - 2:32pm

     

    Kind of like the 3rd theme song. Hope that Paul’s family and friends are doing okay and grateful that God could use him for so many years to touch lives as the voice of Whit.


  • DYlan on February 18th, 2010 - 3:20pm

     

    I Love odyssey! Wait… who doesn’t… Oddyssey Rocks I hope oddyssey Never ends. Let’s hope not. Whit and eugene are my favorite. Dylan age 10


  • Lovely on February 18th, 2010 - 3:52pm

     

    I like number 1 and 3. Number one cause it still has that classic aio sound to it and number 3 cause its bolder. AHHHHH!!!! Paul H died thats sooo sad


  • zack on February 18th, 2010 - 8:02pm

     

    Really sad about Mr. H. He was the best Whit. :(


  • connie on February 19th, 2010 - 7:54am

     

    Yes it does sound a little weird…please stop being curious!


  • Tim on February 19th, 2010 - 8:10am

     

    Meg, Anna, Grant, and Lukerman: the guy who played Connie’s Uncle Joe, Parley Baer, died in 1997. I read this in the official guide. I hope they can find a good replacement for Walker Edminston, as I do not want Tom’s voice to change at all! Though I am kind of old fashion. I don’t really like a lot of the changes in AIO but the theme and logo look great to me! Its’ Connie’s character drawing that I have the most problem with. They could have done better with her. Oh well.


  • Lovely on February 19th, 2010 - 2:28pm

     

    so when are you guys going to tell us which theme will be the new one?? PLEASE LET A VERY IMPATIENT FAN KNOW!


  • emily on February 19th, 2010 - 2:45pm

     

    Hey IDANCE4JESUS, cool name! I dance for jesus too! how old are you and what is your real name? PS I’m 11 going on 12.


  • SNOOK on February 19th, 2010 - 4:31pm

    GO JESSE! YOU NEED TO BE ON THE SHOW


  • Anonymous on February 21st, 2010 - 10:32am

     

    I am going to vote for the 3 choice. It sounds the most like the old one I think. I’m so sad to hear that Paul H. died. I am praying for his family and friends. God Bless.


  • Jossie on February 21st, 2010 - 1:08pm

     

    I can’t believe Paul died! He was a really good as a John Avery Whittaker! I bet everyone will miss him!


  • Jossie on February 21st, 2010 - 1:10pm

     

    By the way,I think option three is the best. It matches the adventures in Odyssey.


  • nina on February 21st, 2010 - 1:28pm

     

    So sorry about whit ill miss him alot there is a lot of
    changes in Odyssey.I can’t wait for the new episodes.I
    love the new theme song,to be honest i like
    both.I am a Odyssey freak my mom calls me I have tons
    volumes.Including NOACOM love IT.


  • ManDY Fan on February 21st, 2010 - 3:50pm

     

    I like number three because it is the most exciting and the best. I can’t wait for album 51! We love you Paul!


  • ManDY Fan on February 21st, 2010 - 3:52pm

     

    Andre Stojka is the new Whit.


  • Miranda on February 21st, 2010 - 4:40pm

     

    3,2,1. I love the third theme.

    I’ll really miss the old Whit.


  • KEndalin on February 21st, 2010 - 5:06pm

     

    WE LOVE YOU PAUL!!!Anyway, why did you change the way everyone looks? I’m really excited to see Harlow Doyle, Pur-rivate eye. He;s one of my favs.


  • KEndalin on February 21st, 2010 - 5:08pm

     

    Me and my family still miss Hal Smith,the first Whit, especially his laugh.


  • Paula on February 21st, 2010 - 9:07pm

     

    I would much rather have no Mr. Whittaker at all, then to have a new one.


  • jack on February 22nd, 2010 - 8:26am

     

    Though we`re sad, Paul`s having an awesome time! I can`t wait to meet him when
    I get to heaven. By the way, what`s everyone`s favorite episode?


  • sally on February 22nd, 2010 - 8:29am

     

    go paul! i liked number2.it was best. and,jack,my fave
    episode is nothing but the half truthe


  • joey on February 22nd, 2010 - 8:34am

    episode wuz either the spy who bugged me or its all about
    me.


  • marline on February 22nd, 2010 - 8:38am

  • beanyboy on February 22nd, 2010 - 4:18pm

     

    #3


  • beanyboy on February 22nd, 2010 - 4:22pm

     

    im sorry that paul died.Im going to miss him.I wonder who will play John Avery Whittaker.


  • kendra on February 22nd, 2010 - 4:42pm

     

    this has absolutely nothin to do with paul or anything but it kinda looks like the characters on the website look different…..mabey its just me lol…..and i love arizona sunrise to…. and i still think mitch and connie should get married…and eugene should have a kid that would be so awesome


  • ABE on February 22nd, 2010 - 5:19pm

     

    I think that #3 is the best because it remains separate from AIO, but is still related. So sad to hear about Paul. I think he was and still is my favorite “Whit”.


  • #1odysseyfan on February 22nd, 2010 - 6:10pm

    Thanks for all you did Mr. Herlinger!!


  • antonio on February 28th, 2010 - 12:24am

     

    2 rocks


  • riley(girl) on March 1st, 2010 - 5:33pm

     

    Dear Paul,
    You will be missed. Every actor adds a little bit of personality to the part of John Avery Whittaker. I have already cried for Mr. Herlinger. But he is in heaven, with Hal and Jesus. I am so happy for him! Death has no sting for those who are children of God.
    Dear Andre,
    Your voice talents are very new and fresh. Your flair and annunciation are a very good combination, and your talents will be well loved by all die hard Odyssey fans like me and the other commenters. WE LOVE YOU!!!


  • josh on March 1st, 2010 - 9:33pm

     

    ditto to antonio. :)


  • Captain Josh on March 3rd, 2010 - 12:26am

    At first I didn’t like Paul as Whit. But he grew on me. The same goes for Andre Stojka as Whit.


  • 14h54o3258t5 on March 18th, 2010 - 2:47pm

     

    i realt liked the old whit now the new with is just ok


  • J on March 26th, 2010 - 12:28pm

     

    So I just found out now that Paul Herlinger died. It didn’t seem like they posted much of anything on this site about it and I don’t understand why not? I loved his Whit soo much he fit it perfect just like Hal Smith. I’ll really miss him!!


  • Odysseyfan#1 on April 10th, 2010 - 9:14am

     

    Paul Herlinger was my favorite voice of Mr. Whittaker. Hal Smith was fine too, and Andre Stojka I will definitely have to get used to. I’m sorry to hear Paul Passed away. I’d never met him, but I do love him. I like the new Odyssey theme song. It’s good to set the future episodes apart from the older Odyssey.


  • jacklyn on April 15th, 2010 - 7:22pm

     

    Sorry to here about Paul. Y DOES ODYSSEY HAVE TO CHANGE, well the faces are fine but every thing else : ( my favorite was number 2.
    I live in alaska and those six or three feet of snow are nothing! Its awesome here!


  • franklin on May 3rd, 2010 - 10:08am

     

    I like 2 and, Im Sorry to hear about Paul who did a great job in the odyssey team.

  • John on October 16th, 2010 - 8:33am

     

    Wow, I can’t believe no one has commented about me saying the old, unused theme sounded like a colo(u)r, sounds weird.


  • j.s.s on December 2nd, 2010 - 11:13am

     

    I am very sorry for everyone on the odyssey team. You guys have become so close to one another through odyssey and this is a very sad time . I know that with time you will heal from the pain that this has caused you. Even though everything is changing it’s for the better. we will always remember Paul in our hearts, although I don’t know any of you I know that when anyone loses a friend it is painful. I will be praying for you all! :0)


  • abigail on December 6th, 2010 - 11:25pm

     

    when i first heard about paul’s daeth i was so so so so sad. i dont really like the NEW odyseys but i kinda like them. it’s just the new fami;y. i really dont like the new family.
