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.
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.

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 phone number was revealed to be 555-2157.
The Stevens's 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.
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.
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.

Cashier: You can't use this; it's expired.
Curt Stevens: Oh? Really? Well... can't you just sorta pass it on through?
Cashier: P-p-pass it on through? No, I can't pass it on through; that would mean a loss of money to the store! It might reflect on my paycheck. Are you trying to take food out of my mouth or something??
Curt Stevens: No! Forget the coupon. Here's a twenty.
Cashier: That's better. Kids these days.

|“|| Curt Stevens: In order to simulate the economy, facsimile growth and prime the pumps for productivity, the city is going to give geographical incessitives to Acme Amalgamated. So take that, Mayor of Connellsville!
|“|| Curt Stevens: Keep an eye on things. If they get violent, throw yourself at their mercy.
|“|| John Whittaker: What a brilliant idea, Mr. Mayor!
Curt Stevens: Ah. Only moderately.
