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

Lucy Cunningham-Schultz: I don't believe it! Curt Stevens is in the Odyssey Public Library.
Curt Stevens: Oh, hi Lucy.
Lucy Cunningham-Schultz: And in the reference book section, no less...I wish I had my camera.

#150: “Home Is Where the Hurt Is”

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: Boy, it gives me chills when he talks tough.

#128: “One Bad Apple”

Curt Stevens: <referring to the molasses> Ugh, this stuff is really sticky.
Tom Riley: Yeah, and tomorrow, it’ll be dry and probably a lot harder to clean up off my barn floor, too. But I know you’ll do a good job.
Curt Stevens: Oh, great. That’s it. I’m never gonna pull another practical joke again — as long as I live.

#120: “Pranks for the Memories”

Curt Stevens: I'm glad you asked, Connie. Has this ever happened to you? You're walking down the street and you drop your keys. Isn't it a pain to bend down and get them?
Connie Kendall: Well, not real—
Curt Stevens: Exactly. Now with the new Vacu-Grab, you don't have to.
Connie Kendall: The Vacu-Grab?
Curt Stevens: It's portable, retractable, and can fit right into your purse. Just take it out, retract it, turn it on, grab the keys, un-retract it, open the special containment unit built right in, and voila! You've got your keys.
Jimmy Barclay: So, instead of going through all of that...why not just bend down and pick up your keys?
Curt Stevens: ...It retracts, Jimmy.

#638: “The Triangled Web, Part 1”

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!"

#153: “Mayor for a Day”

Curt Stevens: There's a girl who won't leave Jimmy alone.
Eugene Meltsner: Ah, a case of harrassment? I believe such things are against the law. Do you want to have her arrested?
Curt Stevens: Could we?!

#117: “The Trouble with Girls”

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