I was thinking about the geographic location of Odyssey. I know it's supposed to be a generic small city that could be many places in America, but I think there are some clues we can pick up.

I get the feeling like it must be in the southern Illinois, Indiana, or Ohio area; just north of the Ohio river.
The town is obviously Midwestern, but it has some slight elements of Southern culture and being just within range of the Bible Belt.

The background scenery seems fairly lush green and foresty, full of deciduous trees, so it probably can't be much further West than Illinois.

In the first animated movie, "The Knights Travellers", there is a Southern plantation style mansion, so that implies this is in the South, or near the South, perhaps somewhere near the northernmost stretches of the Mississippi River.
(The cultural "South" actually extends over a much larger region than most Americans realize, it goes all the way into the southern third of Illinois, as far as the south of Ohio along the Ohio River, even West Virginia is sort of culturally part of the South in some ways)

I get the feeling that Odyssey sort of straddles the extreme farthest most north boundary of "The South" and the Midwest.

If I had to specifically guess, I would guess Odyssey would be located somewhere in the Middle of southern Indiana. Maybe southwest Ohio.

Good guess. In an early episode, before it begins, one of the writers came on and actually said Odyssey was in Ohio. As to where it is in the state, I agree it would probably have to be southwest Ohio because of their easy flights to and from Chicago and mentions of the state line.

Is that what you’re saying?" -Jay Smouse
