FUN-damentals is the 4th Adventures in Odyssey mainstream album, previously released as Puns, Parables, and Perilous Predicaments. It was released in 1989. Its episodes began airing on the radio starting on January 7, 1989 and finished on April 8, 1989.

Description

At Whit’s End, life often imitates, well, life. Maybe that’s why so many kids sort out their questions about faith there. Prayer, being Christlike and evangelism are recurring themes that make for one unexpected adventure after another. In Odyssey, the kids don’t just learn lessons. They live them!
In Odyssey, the kids don’t just learn lessons — they live them! Like the true story of an eccentric man who builds the world’s biggest floating zoo — in faith. More than just a "discovery emporium", Whit’s End serves as a convenient stage for exploring truths...and it’s always Fun-damentally entertaining!

Notes

  • The current back design (with Bonus Material) for this album states Walker Edminston's name as "Walter" Edminston.
