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

Curt Stevens: Like I said, no one is better at practical jokes than Curt Stevens.

#120: “Pranks for the Memories”

Oscar Peterson: Or the time you told him you had a rare tropical disease?
Curt Stevens: I should have used a different colored magic marker.

#103: “Front Page News”

Curt Stevens: British? Hey, I'm not British. Do I sound British to you? I don't even like English muffins!

#149: “By Dawn's Early Light”

Curt Stevens: And finally, as your mayor, I will tighten the belt of our city government around the waist of indifference and reckless bending. So what if I meet up with a few celebrities? Just remember, a penny saved is a penny earned. And the early bird catches the goose that laid the golden egg! Even if it is only one day, I'm gonna make sweeping changes to make our fine city the apple of this country's eye — a silver lining on a dark cloud — a short walk down a long pier.

#153: “Mayor for a Day”

Harvey Nelson: It seems as though you're trailing behind two other personalities.
Curt Stevens: Who?
Harvey Nelson: Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein.

#153: “Mayor for a Day”

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!"

#103: “Front Page News”

Mr. Brown: I'm Brown, from The Sun!
Curt Stevens: Really? Are you peeling?

#153: “Mayor for a Day”

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!

#153: “Mayor for a Day”

Curt Stevens: Keep an eye on things. If they get violent, throw yourself at their mercy.

#153: “Mayor for a Day”

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