In the new
Adventures in Odyssey series I miss some of the old characters,
such as: Lucy Cunningham Shultz, Richard Maxwell, Edwin Blackgaard,
The Bones of Wrath, and the Israelites. Could you please put them in
the new Adventures in Odyssey episodes? -Submitted by
Hello, Charis, I'm so
glad that you miss the old Odyssey characters. I do as well, though
they're never coming back. Lucy is long gone, Richard Maxwell
(well, there is a possibility with him, but no rhyme or reason),
Edwin Blackgaard is still around (just not in very many episodes),
the Bones of Wrath are still around but only mentioned, and the
Israelites are far, far away from Odyssey.
So who's left? Jimmy
Barclay is the only kid from the past who has appeared in newer
shows, such as Living
in the Gray. I can see Jimmy coming back every now and
then. I think it's safe to say that we're dying to hear from Donna
and Mary Barclay still.
Sorry, Charis, most of
the old characters are not coming back. However, in more recent
days, characters such as Curt Stevens, Lucy Schultz, Lawrence
Hodges, and Jack Davis have made appearances in the collection
The Best Small Town. You don't
want to miss it!
