Galatians 6:7-8

7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Rights, Wrongs, and Winners

“Rights, Wrongs, and Winners” is episode #640 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Nathan Hoobler, and originally aired on May 3, 2008.


The two finalists for “Best Small Town” are in a perfect tie. Each town is given one week to show the heart of the town to win the contest.


Odyssey is told that because of the number of criteria both finalists meet in the Best Small Town in America contest, there is a tie and a runoff competition would be held to determine the final winner. Because of a miscommunication Wooton has to reveal his identity as the writer of PowerBoy because comic book fans thought that Harlow Doyle was the real creator, even though he was suprised at the outcome himself. The judges for the best small town competition say that since the company that publishes PowerBoy is the company that owns Home and Country Magazine, they would like to avoid any accusations of fraud. Senior Publisher Perry Browning informs Wooton and Mayor Margaret Faye that Odyssey will be disqualified but Wooton offers to leave Campbell County for a year if Odyssey will remain in the competition. He moves to Odenton, in a house that is too small for his dinner gong. However Connie Kendall leads a petition drive that results in an almost unanimous vote for Odyssey to forfeit the Best Small Town competition so that Wooton can return to Odyssey.

Powerboy fan: Mr. Doyle, is it true that you've been drawing Powerboy in secret for the last five years?
Harlow Doyle: It must be true. I just heard it on the radio!

Harlow Doyle: Why certainly, small child with a naturally deep voice!

Wooton Bassett: Oh yeah, county not country. I always get those mixed up, which is why I always go on those weekend trips to Switzerland by accident.

Wooton Bassett: <to the tune of "Camp-town Races"> Hello who's on Wooton's phone, howdy, howdy!

Wooton Bassett: Actually, a whole bunch of characters in the comic are based on real people in Odyssey. Like there's this one character, oh, she's always late for stuff and she talks all the time and she says stuff she doesn't mean.
Connie Kendall: Who's she based on?
Wooton Bassett: Uh, oh, she's also really good-looking and, uh, very cool.

Wooton Bassett: I think I have what Powerboy would call a solution that would stand up to a diamond-lined bowling ball.

Harlow Doyle: Jumpin' Jamaican gymnasts! I draw PowerBoy!? In my busy schedule, when did I ever find time to do that?

Connie Kendall: Wooton, why'd you just hit a pot with a fork?
Wooton Bassett: This house doesn't have a high ceiling for my breakfast gong, it's in storage.
Eugene Meltsner: But you once said that you couldn't possibly have breakfast without that instrument.
Wooton Bassett: I can't, Eugene. That's why I'm having 2 lunches everyday.
