The Battle, Part 1

“The Battle, Part 1” is episode #83 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Phil Lollar, and originally aired on August 19, 1989.


Dr. Regis Blackgaard and Richard Maxwell uses a modem to hack into Whit's End to try to steal a computer program, producing some tragic side effects.


Dr. Regis Blackgaard has finally opened Blackgaard's Castle. Whit and Eugene stop by for a visit and discover the place is the antithesis of Whit's End: noisy, rowdy, and full of unwholesome games. Blackgaard tries to dismiss all this with a "kids-will-be-kids" nonchalance. Soon Whit and Eugene have had enough, and they leave.

What they don't know is that the place is just a cover for Blackgaard and Richard Maxwell, who are trying to steal Whit's "Applesauce" computer program. They have a computer and modem of their own and log into Whit's computer, Mabel, causing "Applesauce" to wreak havoc on Whit's End. But they soon run into the password problem. Blackgaard tells Richard he must use Lucy to get more information about "Applesauce" from Whit. But Lucy overhears them and rushes off to tell Whit.

Meanwhile, Blackgaard has Richard use Mabel to produce a power surge in the Imagination Station. Richard reluctantly causes it to blow up right as Lucy rushes into the Station! Lucy is taken to the hospital. Because of her injuries, Whit must conduct an investigation. To do that, he decides to close down Whit's End.
