Curt Stevens, voiced by Fabio Stephens, is an early Adventures in Odyssey character who first appeared in #103: “Front Page News”. Interestingly, his character's last name was named after the actor Fabio Stephens — although the writers spelled it differently.

History

In Odyssey Middle School, Curt would often try to get out of gym class because he was sick of running laps. One such scheme was when Curt told Coach Stubbs he had a rare tropical disease. Coach Stubbs sent Curt to the school nurse, who sent Curt to the principal's office; the principal then sent Curt home to his parents, who sent him to his room for a week. Another involved Curt trying to boycott the "fascist left wing competition", as he put it. As a result, Coach Stubbs washed Curt's mouth out with soap.

Family & Home

See Stevens family

Much of Curt's family was revealed in the episode #150: “Home Is Where the Hurt Is”. Curt's mother left him and his father, Frank Stevens, after he was born. As a result, Curt's father became an alcoholic. Despite this, in #117: “The Trouble with Girls”, Curt said that his mom packed his lunch. This is due to the fact that the episode was a remake of the Harley episode #13: “Bobby's Valentine”, and the original line was carried over.

Curt and his father live in a trailer park, at least during Curt's time in middle school. Their address, 561 Potter Park, is an allusion to "It's a Wonderful Life." In the film, "Potter's Field" was owned by the rich man, and was known as a slum. Their phone number was revealed to be 555-2157.

One of Curt's grandmothers wears dentures (#118: “What Happened to the Silver Streak?”).

Friends

Curt was best friends with Lucy Cunningham-Schultz. In many episodes, Lucy tried to convince Curt to give up on his "schemes". In #638: “The Triangled Web, Part 1”, it was revealed that Lucy and Curt dated throughout high school, and actually were supposed to go to the senior dance together, but he backed out, afraid that Lucy would begin to talk about their "future". In part 2, it is revealed that Curt and Lucy met in the school cafeteria.

Curt and Oscar Peterson were best friends until Curt got him in trouble for Curt's getting out of physed class scheme.

Personality

Curt will do almost anything to get out of work. Ironically, he usually puts more effort into a scheme then he would have done by actually doing the work. He also makes bad and/or wrong choices and/or helps others to make the wrong choice.

Quotes

John Whittaker: It’s not what you call something, but what it is. The name, the label on the outside doesn't change what it is on the inside — the same with how you look on those posters. Uh, you got that?
Curt Stevens: That's great, Mr. Whittaker. You should be a politician.
John Whittaker: Why?
Curt Stevens: I didn’t understand a word you said, but it sounded like it made perfect sense.

#106: “By Any Other Name”

John Whittaker: You just have to follow instructions. You can do that, can't you?
Curt Stevens: Depends on the instructions.

#127: “Have You No Selpurcs?”

Curt Stevens: You remember that award-winning article in the Odyssey Times about the embezzling at the Acme Corporation?
Miss Medloff: Yes. You mean you...
Curt Stevens: That's right! I read it.

#103: “Front Page News”

Eugene Meltsner: Have you tried: Telling her to get lost and then throw mud on her?
Curt Stevens: That’s what I told him!
Jimmy Barclay: I don’t think that’s right, though.
Eugene Meltsner: Well, of course it isn’t. But, believe it or not, that’s how the girls used to get rid of me.

#117: “The Trouble with Girls”

Curt Stevens: "Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?"
Lucy Cunningham-Schultz: You stole that!
Curt Stevens: I only had like, fifteen minutes! I spent all my time finding the sporks!

#639: “The Triangled Web, Part 2”

Curt Stevens: Come on, Mrs. Medlock! Give us a chance! Where would any of the great writers be if someone didn't let them work on their school newspapers? Samuel Clemens would have never met Mark Twain! Charles Dicksonson would have never written classics like David Coppertone or Oliver Twister! William Shakespeare couldn't have penned those immortal words: "To be, or not to be! Wherefore art thou?" Or, "Romeo, Romeo, let down your hair!"

Mr. Brown: I'm Brown, from The Sun!

Curt Stevens: It’s like.. like salt on a potato chip. It gives the speech flavor to... taste good.
Lucy Cunningham-Schultz: You're making this up!
Curt Stevens: I’m not! Ask any politician. Potato chips always taste better with salt on them.

#106: “By Any Other Name”

John Whittaker: What a brilliant idea, Mr. Mayor!
Curt Stevens: Ah. Only moderately.
