August 15: My Favorite Thing – Secret Word #9 (case sensitive)

August 14th, 2009

Congratulations on entering this week’s secret word! Now, enjoy your prize: a special sneek peak of the cover artwork for the heavily-anticipated Album 51, premiering this spring!

Gary Locke's sketch for the cover of Album 51!

Gary Locke's sketch for the cover of Album 51!

This sketch was created by illustrator Gary Locke, who you may remember from the video prize for Secret Word #5. (You can see where he has “penciled in” room for other design elements, such as the Odyssey logo in the center.) The Odyssey team will provide feedback before he creates the final cover artwork for Album 51.

What do you think is happening in this sketch? Is that… really who it looks like?

Do you remember each of the words in the Secret Word contest? If not, it might be a good idea to go back and write them down.

  • Jess on August 14th, 2009 - 12:44pm


    Haha I can see Eugene’s eyes

  • Daniel on August 14th, 2009 - 12:53pm


    It looks like Connie is giving Eugine a haircut. I’m not sure if she is using a razor. It doesn’t look like it is going very well.

  • mEL on August 14th, 2009 - 1:12pm


    Haha! I agree with you Daniel! We finally get to see Eugene’s eyes!

  • Abigail on August 14th, 2009 - 1:33pm


    funny! I don’t think Eugene likes what Connie is doing

  • Srb on August 14th, 2009 - 1:40pm


    Katrina is trying to prove to Eugene that she CAN cut hair. All she really ends up doing is proving she CANNOT. OR maybe he has lice. :)

  • Original joe on August 14th, 2009 - 1:41pm


    It’s cool we can see Eugene’s eyes. They look “periwinkle blue.”

  • evan on August 14th, 2009 - 1:55pm


    I think that might be Mitch, not Eugene. but i’m not sure, i could be wrong.

  • cheesy on August 14th, 2009 - 1:58pm


    This is a cool prize but I like audio or video prizes

  • nate on August 14th, 2009 - 2:41pm


    i thought that connie is giving Eugene a haircut as well! i wonder if it has anything to do with the title…

  • Kayti on August 14th, 2009 - 2:49pm


    I can’t bleveive that Eugene would let Miss Kenndel give him a hair cut!! Or is it Katrina and she lost her glasses? Very funy none the less!

  • Janelle on August 14th, 2009 - 3:23pm


    I hope there is an Odyssey about this picture! It will be halairious!!

  • Nicole on August 14th, 2009 - 3:30pm


    haha! i like this prize! thats really cool!


  • leslie on August 14th, 2009 - 3:32pm


    i think it looks like Connie is giving Eugene a haircut. i cant wait to hear this album. i love Adventures in Odyssey! Keep up the good work!

  • K1 on August 14th, 2009 - 4:55pm


    1. Connie giving Eugene a haircut?
    2. Connie trying to stop someone from looking like Eugene? (Ergo the haircut.) Connie on the cover of the Encore Album was wearing a vest instead of a sweater. Here the female character is wearing a vest.
    3. Katrina giving Eugene a haircut? The girl’s face just doesn’t quite look like Connie.
    4. Is that Leonard? This character’s face is thinner than Eugene’s.

  • Original joe on August 14th, 2009 - 5:08pm


    Katrina doesn’t have her hair in a pony-tail. Plus, Katrina has blonde hair. So it must be Connie.

  • rOCK-O-AGES on August 14th, 2009 - 5:56pm


    IS that realy Eugene getting his hair cut by connie?!?!

  • Irwin on August 14th, 2009 - 6:00pm


    Haha, that’s interesting. It appears to be Eugene and Connie, but you never know…

  • Jess on August 14th, 2009 - 6:27pm


    Is that really Eugene?

  • abbie M on August 14th, 2009 - 6:52pm


    Hmm… i can actually see Eugene’s eyes! I saw them in a movie once, but they were just a black speck. About the characters, And that IS Eugene, and the other does look like Connie, except her hair isn’t exactly the right color. But as far as I’m concerned, it’s Connie, and it’s definitely not Katrina (?) . . But i could be wrong. . .:O

  • Grace on August 14th, 2009 - 7:04pm


    It’s Connie cutting someones hair…maybe someone is trying to dress up like Eugene. Eugene doesn’t look like that; he’s too old, maybe it’s Banard…I guess we’ll find out next month!

  • Grace on August 14th, 2009 - 7:07pm


    It could even be Eugene’s dad!

  • sakura on August 14th, 2009 - 7:09pm


    i like odessey prizes but this is the best
    hey does anyone know if its next spring cause it said this spring im confused 8(

  • Karen on August 14th, 2009 - 7:20pm


    it has to be Connie cutting Eugene’s hair, so that we can FINALY see his eyes!!!! Funny!!!!!

  • alyssa on August 14th, 2009 - 7:25pm


    I think Connie is saving Eugene’s hair so short we can see his eyes. But why is Connie wearing a “Eugene vest”?
    I am writing down the secret words. I love the Washington family, they are so funny!!! sometimes it seems like they are part of my family!! keep up the great work !!!!

  • michaela on August 14th, 2009 - 8:05pm


    it looks like Lucy Cunningham-Shoultz is cutting leonard Meltser’s hair! 😀

  • mariya on August 14th, 2009 - 8:55pm


    This episode was weird. Why didn’t Eugene let Katrina cut his hair? And he let Connie cut it!!

  • lisa on August 14th, 2009 - 8:59pm


    I love this episode!

  • KAYLEE on August 15th, 2009 - 5:32am


    ummm, well it looks like connie giving someone a haircut but i’m not sure if thats Eugene or not.?

  • Ashley K on August 15th, 2009 - 5:42am


    It looks like Connie is giving Eugine a haircut. I wonder what album 51 will be about?

  • jess on August 15th, 2009 - 5:48am


    i can’t wait!

  • Bernedette on August 15th, 2009 - 7:16am


    I agree with Daniel. It looks like Connie is giving him a not-so-good haircut. I wonder if they’re going to have all the characters going through various changes…seeing how they’re changing Whit (which I’m still very unhappy about…).

  • Anna on August 15th, 2009 - 7:17am


    Awsome!! you go Connie!!

  • Elijah on August 15th, 2009 - 7:27am


    My favorite character is Richard Maxwell.

  • Mel on August 15th, 2009 - 7:29am


    Is it Eugene’s Dad???

  • Anonymous on August 15th, 2009 - 7:30am


    That is Connie, I was expecting something bigger :(

  • Anonymous on August 15th, 2009 - 7:32am


    His Eyes r looking up, so we can not see them :( :( . GO AIO!!!

  • Anonymous on August 15th, 2009 - 7:34am


    What’s all the smoke, Eugene’s Hair

  • Anonymous on August 15th, 2009 - 7:34am


    or the razor

  • Anonymous on August 15th, 2009 - 7:35am


    What is with the black vest on Connie

  • realMarizona on August 15th, 2009 - 7:41am


    Wait, is that girl Connie or Katrina? Because if it’s Connie, I think that would be weird.

  • md girl on August 15th, 2009 - 7:42am


    Is Connie wearing one of Eugene’s vests while she attempts to cut his hair??? Looks hilarious :) Can’t wait to listen to the story behind it!

  • Sterling on August 15th, 2009 - 7:57am


    Eugene is getting his hair cut by Connie I think that is obvious

  • Noah on August 15th, 2009 - 8:34am


    A little confused. Why can we see Eugene’s eyes? Is it really Eugene? It looks un-eugenish. So Album 51, eh? Cool. What’s up with the red button at the end of album 50? so many questions, too long a wait… :-)
    Wonder what V.51 will be called?
    Are you guys writing these down? Wonder what the grand prize is. Maybe it’s like a preview of album 51?

  • josh .S on August 15th, 2009 - 8:39am


    Eugene shaving his head?!?!?
    he’s going to look pretty weird.

  • ZOE on August 15th, 2009 - 8:44am


    I always thought Eugene needed a haircut

  • Ashleigh on August 15th, 2009 - 8:54am


    I love this Odyssey.

  • christian on August 15th, 2009 - 9:01am


    It sorta looks like Connie is giving Eugene a haircut, but it sorta doesn’t look like Eugene. He looks kind of older than Eugene and plus we can see Eugene’s eyes…if we could never see them before then why start now? Anyway, I’m excited to hear the album!

  • christian on August 15th, 2009 - 9:02am


    Maybe it’s Eugene’s dad.

  • Melissa on August 15th, 2009 - 9:02am


    doesn’t Connie and Eugene have red hair

  • sopho on August 15th, 2009 - 9:29am


    I think thats miss Rathbone shaving mr. rahbone’s hair off. cool picture

  • jordan on August 15th, 2009 - 9:46am


    cool so funy

  • lily on August 15th, 2009 - 10:08am


    I can’t wait for vol. 51 to come out!!! 😉 I just love A.I.O!

  • suzi joy on August 15th, 2009 - 10:28am


    HEY EUGENE IS GETTING A HAIRCUT!!!!! FINALLY! It’s about time he got rid of his long mushroom cut-ish haircut!!I wonder what he’ll look like when his hair is cut?? and did you notice connie was wearing a vest! She always detests Eugene wearing all his vests all the time! There fces in that picture are so funny! I can’t wait to get and hear the new album!!!

  • Nevada on August 15th, 2009 - 10:32am


    Poor Eugene.His wife Katrina I thought she was to cut Eugene’s hair.He looks so funny.LOL I mean he’s so Outragesly funny Ha Ha. Connie you should give Eugene a moehock.Ha Ha. He would look so stupendosly funny outragesly Hilareously funny.Mr.Hoobler it would be nice I’m not saying for you to do it,but what if you could get Mr.Lockes to comment on this so he could tell us how he came up with Eugene,and how he came up with a funny,decent,lovingly for Eungene.Romantic for Katrin

  • Tommy on August 15th, 2009 - 10:33am


    It can’t be Katrina because the girl has blonde hair.

  • John on August 15th, 2009 - 10:37am


    No the girl has brown hair so it couldn’t be Katrina it has to be Connie, or maybe it’s someone else? :-0

  • Yulianna on August 15th, 2009 - 10:57am


    Anyways Connie you should give him a moehock.Ha Ha he should let his wife Katrina do the haircut.Eugene your eyes have been spotted.LOL You are the best Eugene.

  • Riley on August 15th, 2009 - 10:58am


    Is that EUGENE??? He looks old! 😉

  • lu on August 15th, 2009 - 11:10am


    Why is Connie shaving Eugene’s hair?

  • sparkygirafe on August 15th, 2009 - 11:17am


    does connie become a barber or is it somebody else.

  • andi :) on August 15th, 2009 - 12:03pm


    wow thats cool and kinda hard to figuer out but i think its connie and ether gugeane or mitch

  • jojo on August 15th, 2009 - 12:07pm


    Awesome!!! I agree that Eugene would NOT EVER let Connie cut his hair!!!! And I also think that it could be Mitch too, Evan, I hope they bring him back! But does Mitch have glasses:)?

  • tim on August 15th, 2009 - 12:15pm


    Connie is giving Eugene a buzz cut!

  • Bretta on August 15th, 2009 - 12:18pm


    Learning new skills?? I know that’s connie. Is she going to beauty school now???? : ) Funny, tell me what’s going on!!?!?!

  • jess on August 15th, 2009 - 12:22pm


    I bet it does have something to do with the tile.

  • Jose on August 15th, 2009 - 12:36pm


    This is really cool! It looks like Connie giving Eugene a haircut.

  • Anonymous on August 15th, 2009 - 12:55pm


    kindof dissapointing cause I like the audio prizes. I wonder if eugine lost a bet to connie, or if connie is trying to do someting new in her life. very intresting and misterious.

  • Beth on August 15th, 2009 - 1:08pm


    I didn’t recognize Eugene until I saw all these comments here. Very interesting…

  • Austin on August 15th, 2009 - 1:52pm


    I sounds like the episode this is dictating is really funny1Can’t wait for Album 51!I hope that Gary puts hair over Eugene’s eyes,because he looks wierd with eyes.

  • Marlene on August 15th, 2009 - 1:58pm


    Finally I can see Eugene’s eyes!

  • daniel on August 15th, 2009 - 2:05pm



    😉 😎

  • Grace on August 15th, 2009 - 2:56pm


    Ok, I’m a different Grace than above… Anyway there are a couple of things I noted: 1) If it is Connie then her hair is the wrong color, and Katrina has glasses and blond hair (refer to character pictures) 2) Did you notice that BOTH have a BLACK VEST on?-Eugene look alike day?? 3) Eugene, if it IS Eugene has either got something in his hair or decided to go modern w/ his hair!

  • josh .S on August 15th, 2009 - 3:10pm


    Nate, do we know what the title is?

  • lydia on August 15th, 2009 - 3:19pm


    What is the title of 51? And is the new Whit going to be in that one or not?

  • lydia on August 15th, 2009 - 3:24pm


    I have a very important question. I would like a answer to this from the AIO team. I am trying to figure out somethings. I don’t have a email. Please post it here so I can find it when I go back.THK

    Lydia, if you get permission from your parents, you may write to Focus on the Family

  • chal on August 15th, 2009 - 3:46pm


    It could not be Katrina because she has blonde hair.

  • Nate on August 15th, 2009 - 4:32pm


    Woa! I didn’t realize that Eugene had eyes. :)

  • elaine on August 15th, 2009 - 4:46pm


    I love the password! You don’t see my name too often. What’s Connie doing in a vest?

  • Mark on August 15th, 2009 - 5:15pm


    i wonder how Connie got Eugene to agree to let her cut his hair

  • Aaron on August 15th, 2009 - 5:23pm


    Connie is looking a bit sick there… well, I had the same expression when I first saw Eugene with a bit too much off the top. 😛

  • josiah on August 15th, 2009 - 5:42pm


    that would be awesome if mitch came back to odyssey. they should do another novacom spin. i never get tired of the novacom series.

  • kayla on August 15th, 2009 - 5:48pm


    I wonder what Katrina will think…

  • Lauren on August 15th, 2009 - 5:59pm


    does anybody know if it will be on the internet?

  • cc on August 15th, 2009 - 6:16pm


    We don’t know who is in the picture. Any suggections?

  • Whit on August 15th, 2009 - 7:43pm


    Poor Eugene, he looks very worried and might I add, a little older.

  • Hawk on August 15th, 2009 - 7:52pm


    ha ha it looks like eugene’s first haircut

    i wonder what the title is going be..


  • e on August 15th, 2009 - 8:41pm


    why would Connie shave Eugene’s hair?

  • lol on August 15th, 2009 - 8:48pm


    wooow we finally can see eugenes eyes!!! hooray 4 connie

  • Rainey P on August 15th, 2009 - 10:16pm


    how emberising for Eugene

  • matthew on August 16th, 2009 - 6:29am


    They never said mitch had glasses and I don’t think mitch wouldlet her do it but neither eugene unless he was desprate to capture katrinas attetion back before they were married at this point it is anybody’s guess. Well any listeners guess. Also this was awesome

  • melissa on August 16th, 2009 - 8:38am


    I am getting so excited about the next album! Can’t wait!

  • cinnamonrose on August 16th, 2009 - 9:08am



  • Odyssey Fan on August 16th, 2009 - 10:20am


    Eugene with a haircut? His eyes visible? Wow! I can’t wait!

  • aravis on August 16th, 2009 - 11:07am


    looks like katrina is giving eugene a bald spot/ hair cut

  • April on August 16th, 2009 - 11:28am


    it’s funny!!!! eugene doesn’t look very happy!!!! i thing he’s going to have a bald spot on top of his head!!

  • Sarah on August 16th, 2009 - 11:59am


    I think that Connie has decided to give Eugene a new haircut- much to Eugene’s dismay!

  • Harpazo on August 16th, 2009 - 1:01pm


    We finally get to see Eugene’s eyes! I think that was Connie giving Eugene a hair cut.

  • CAMDEN on August 16th, 2009 - 1:10pm


    Keep up the good work ;D 😀

  • CAMDEN on August 16th, 2009 - 1:10pm


    Keep up the good work 😀

  • Aio fan on August 16th, 2009 - 2:37pm


    It couldn’t be Mitch because his eyes are green, not “periwinkle blue”

  • Lindsey S. on August 16th, 2009 - 2:40pm


    It is definitely Connie giving Eugene a haircut. I can’t believe that Eugene would let Connie give him a haircut! I think that will be the last time that he lets her cut his hair, because it looks like she is doing a horrible job! But at least we get to finally see Eugene’s eyes. Hurrah!!!

  • Sarah beth on August 16th, 2009 - 3:30pm


    I can’t tell if it’s Katrina or Connie Kenndel, but ether way. It’s quite funny!

  • h on August 16th, 2009 - 6:40pm


    I’m not sure if it is connie giving Eugene a haircut of if it is Katrina without her glasses Still very funny!

  • elise13 on August 16th, 2009 - 6:46pm


    Wow, well at least its Connie cutting Eugenes hair and not ed washington, since he is so bad at cutting stuff ( the snowflake incident) I wish I could get the couple secret words that I missed. Because now I can’t listen to those episodes. :( elise13 (aka first elise)

  • elise13 on August 16th, 2009 - 6:47pm


    i am almost thinking that the guy in the pictures is mitch…..

  • lu on August 16th, 2009 - 8:50pm


    It’s definitely Connie shaving his head… But, you might be on the right track about Eugene having lice.

  • e on August 16th, 2009 - 8:51pm


    i liked the audios because whenever i run out of Adventures in Odyssey to listen to i listen to one of them!

  • Madison on August 16th, 2009 - 9:09pm


    I can’t belive that I got to see the cover for Album 51.I LOVE it:D.

  • dan the man on August 17th, 2009 - 6:42am


    I love it

  • Diet on August 17th, 2009 - 7:28am


    Looks like Eugene has aged a few years! And we can see his eyes now?! I’m still trying to figure out if thats Connie or Katrina, though…

  • odysseyfreak on August 17th, 2009 - 7:36am


    i agree with evan, i think it is micth! i can’t wait for #51! it has to be micth though, because it said, is that who it really looks like?! Evan where do you live? i live in MO! missouri! i am 12!

  • MJJ on August 17th, 2009 - 8:11am


    I think Connie is either giving Eugene a trim, or Lenard came back and she’s doing it to him.

  • belinda on August 17th, 2009 - 12:14pm


    That is defiantly Connie and Eugene! Besides in one of the podcasts they answered the question on whether Mitch was coming back and they said no. (tear)

  • squidward on August 17th, 2009 - 12:23pm


    this is awsome! DO not change the cover:ps i can finally see his eyes

  • Rachel on August 17th, 2009 - 1:29pm


    OH MY GOODNESS!!! This is so cool! We get to see Eugene’s eyes for the very first time! (The first time in one of the videos did not count.) This is unbelievable! Gary Locke, make sure to make them the right color! Maybe Eugene lost a bet to Connie or something?

    I CANNOT wait until 2010!

  • james on August 17th, 2009 - 3:24pm


    I think it is Eugene’s dad

  • OLIVIA : ) on August 17th, 2009 - 4:04pm


    Wow… It’s looks really funny!
    It better not really be eugene.
    I can’t imagine how I’d live knowing Eugene is bold! : )

  • Annakaliah on August 17th, 2009 - 4:39pm


    I love it :)

  • Gary Locke on August 17th, 2009 - 5:29pm


    that IS a vest!!! Why would i draw a vest on a girl that resembles Connie?yes it is an electric razor….i didn’t look up any razor photos before i did this sketch…..look for the expressions to change on the actual finished album cover…….i got the eyes the right color in the final art…..2010 is coming fast! Glad you liked the sketch! 2o1o will be COOOOOL!…oops, i think i said too much….here they come….gtg

  • Anonymous on August 17th, 2009 - 7:03pm


    weird.like K1 said, it may be Leonard getting a haircut from Katrina or it could be some weird adventure in the inspiration station

  • jOHN AVERY on August 17th, 2009 - 8:06pm


    I think these are imposters.They look a little like Connie and Eugene, but not the way I usually see them. It’s the Rathbones, impersonating them in their newest cheep scheme.

  • jOHN AVERY on August 17th, 2009 - 8:29pm


    Okay, so everyone’s wondering who the characters are. But perhaps we should be asking what’s happening in the background. That’s probably relevant. Anyone have an idea?

  • C.r on August 18th, 2009 - 6:36am


    I think it is Connie giving Eugene a haircut whatever it is it very funny!

  • marrisa on August 18th, 2009 - 7:22am


    It’s Eugene and I have seen his eyes Connie gets wild ideas in her head I can’t wait to hear (the rest)haha of Odyssey.

  • Seth on August 18th, 2009 - 7:30am


    I’m gonna guess that its not Eugene and Connie in the drawing! Is it Leonard and Katrina?! It looks too old to be Eugene. Plus, everyone knows you can’t see Eugene’s eyes! Also, Connie has bright red hair– not brown hair! Anyone agree with me?

  • Thewalrusman on August 18th, 2009 - 9:16am


    Dear Odyssey, can you tell me what happened to the transmuter and BEAVRS?

  • aly on August 18th, 2009 - 9:48am



  • ADTIM on August 18th, 2009 - 10:07am


    Album #51 will be called “Take it From the Top” ( I got this information from the odysseyscoop. I wonder if the title has anything to do with Eugene losing his “top” LOL :)

  • hope on August 18th, 2009 - 11:29am


    Ha,ha. That’s very funny.

  • Natalie on August 18th, 2009 - 12:29pm


    I wonder why we have to remember all the passwords?

  • Jenneniah on August 18th, 2009 - 1:37pm


    Notice how something always happens to Eugene when something happens in his life…wonder what it is now………

  • Lindsey S. on August 18th, 2009 - 2:25pm


    Thanks Gary Locke for the information! I now can’t wait to hear this episode. So far the cover is looking great and now the title for the album, “Take It From The Top” makes sense;(since Connie is cutting Eugene’s hair from the top of his head!) However, I have just one suggestion, please draw Eugene a little younger. He looks way to old. :-)
    Lindsey S.

  • bookworm on August 18th, 2009 - 2:34pm


    COOL PICTURE! :) Can’t wait to here the story that goes along with it! :)

  • K1 on August 19th, 2009 - 7:35am


    @Gary, yes, why would you draw a girl resembling Connie with a vest? You drew Connie with a vest on the Encore Album. The Walkman she was listening to was representative of 2nd-generation audio devices (circa 1980s). So were her clothes (specifically, the vest) representative of the 1980s as well? And how would the 1980s tie in with “Take it From the Top”?

  • carboncopy on August 19th, 2009 - 9:15am


    an “other woman” had entered eugenes life.

  • aravis on August 19th, 2009 - 9:16am


    its not eugene connie or katrina, im guessing its tottally new charecters?!? one is trying to be just like eugene though a bit older…

  • lumanker on August 19th, 2009 - 10:12am


    it’s an O.K.prize.

  • lukerman on August 19th, 2009 - 10:13am



  • kim on August 19th, 2009 - 10:21am


    I think it is Eugene’s dad because you can see his eyes,he looks younger and his face is thinner.
    It can’t be Katrina because her hiar is blond,it must be connie.

    KIM :)

  • Samone on August 19th, 2009 - 12:23pm


    that IS connie…the hair is the right color. She does NOT have red hair. Don’t yall remember when she dyed her hair “RED” so to speak during the mitch lovey ovey part??

    So yes that is Connie. NOT KATRINA or ANYONE ELSE!!! :)

  • Beefstew on August 19th, 2009 - 1:09pm


    yeow, can’t wait to hear what this one’s about!! hurray AIO!! thanks for the hint, mr. locke! hey,when are eugene and katrina going to have kids?

  • Lauren on August 19th, 2009 - 1:28pm


    Haha! First time I’ve done this secret word thing, and this is great! Now I have to go try all the others!

  • ek on August 19th, 2009 - 1:32pm


    ha ha eugine you gite a haer cut!!!!

  • *Liv* on August 19th, 2009 - 4:30pm


    Cool picture… I can’t wait for album 51!

  • noelle on August 19th, 2009 - 4:41pm


    Lindsey S. I agree with you totally. Eugene must look alittle younger please! I wonder why connie is wearing eugenes vest……..

  • elise13 on August 19th, 2009 - 4:47pm


    Gary, I don’t belive that you are really Gary Locke, because Nathan Hooblers comments are always bold and so would’t yours be to? Can you say something that would assure me you are really Gary Locke? thanks! Elise

  • Tyler-paige on August 20th, 2009 - 7:02am


    Is that Connie or Katrina cutting Eugene’s hair?

  • Lindsey S. on August 20th, 2009 - 2:17pm


    Yes it IS Connie! I would recognize that face anywhere. So please stop asking if that is Katrina, because it isn’t. And that IS Eugene even though he looks too old to be Eugene. Please remember that this is not the final cover. It’s just a sketch of the cover. So that is why Connie doesn’t look quite like Connie, and Eugene doesn’t look quite like Eugene. For what it’s worth, I really like the cover, and I can’t wait until I can hear this episode when the album comes out. :-)

  • masterchief on August 20th, 2009 - 7:02pm


    this is cool

  • masterchief on August 20th, 2009 - 7:04pm


    gary Locke is cool

  • marvin on August 20th, 2009 - 7:05pm


    alright this is awsome

  • kind person on August 20th, 2009 - 7:06pm


    this is kinda weird!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Keara on August 20th, 2009 - 7:39pm


    Whatever is going on in this picture, is obviously puzzeling. On first glance I would say that this is Connie and the other person is someone who looks like Eugene! :)

  • Sierra77 on August 20th, 2009 - 8:16pm


    That looks so cool! But I cant figure out who the girl is because Connie has red hair and Katrina has blond hair! Who is it???? Gary Locke you did an awesome job!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!!

  • shev on August 20th, 2009 - 9:45pm


    Eugene’s getting a hair cut!!! Yeah!!! It is time. ahe out of college and married to Katrina now. He will look much better. Who’s Leonard? The idea about that being Eugene’s dad is interresting. . . getting cleaned up for wedding. . . Connie would help him so its possible???

  • Jake on August 21st, 2009 - 6:16am


    Oh my…Scroll down…is that really Gary Locke? [August 17th, 2009]

  • Jenneniah on August 21st, 2009 - 10:16am


    That was cool of GL to comment!

  • elise13 on August 21st, 2009 - 11:44am


    Ok, thanks Gary! Sorry for not beliveing you were really who you are! ( if that makes any sense!) :) elise awesome sketch!

  • julianna on August 21st, 2009 - 3:06pm


    Mr.Locke how did you come up to draw Eugene and Connie or was it someone else who drew them.How old is Eugen in that picture.Oh is Connies eyes are really green.

  • Joshua s on August 21st, 2009 - 4:15pm


    they crash into whit’s end

  • elise13 on August 21st, 2009 - 5:14pm


    @ Gary,
    I just wanted to say that I have been sketching this to try to get ideas on what might be happening, and i haven’t thought of a thing.

  • Yerusha on August 21st, 2009 - 5:34pm


    Hey!!Eugene has red hair.Since when does he have brown hair,and Connie has burnet with a tent of red in it.Now since when does she have Brownish blackish hair.Lindsey how do you get the yellow smiley face.Not this:) but the yellow one.

  • Yerusha on August 21st, 2009 - 5:37pm


    Guys I didn’t say that Katrina shaved Eugenes hair.

  • rebekah on August 21st, 2009 - 7:32pm


    I think that it’s Katrina trying to give Eugene a haircut and she can’t seem to cut it right. By the way I can draw way better than gary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [Just kidding]

  • Emandem11 on August 22nd, 2009 - 8:12am


    I can’t believe Connie is wearing a vest! (If that really is Connie.) That is sure to be a funny episode.

  • Emandem11 on August 22nd, 2009 - 8:20am


    That is definitely Eugene. He looks different because…
    1 – It is a sketch, kind of like an artist’s “first draft.” 2 – He looks different because this is the first time we have ever seen his eyes!
    Go Gary Locke! Keep up the good work.

  • Joel on August 22nd, 2009 - 10:12am


    can’t wait till 51 comes out

  • Adri on August 22nd, 2009 - 12:04pm


    It’s Connie trying to shave Eugenes hair!

  • Leah kathryn on August 22nd, 2009 - 2:28pm


    Haw haw.. interesting..
    This will be some album!
    (and I do think it is Connie and Eugene, but why Connie giving him a haircut?)

  • Monica on August 22nd, 2009 - 5:03pm

    LOL!!!!!!!!! Is Conie cutting Eugine’s hair!? I know that she always gets on him about his wardrobe and teases him about his hair, but I guess she finally got REALLY sick of it. I wonder what he’s going to look like. ha ha! LOL!!!!!!!!!

  • Anonymous on August 23rd, 2009 - 5:30pm


    I can’t wait to hear the story begind this!! It looks like Connie giving Eugine a haircut!! Or is it Eugene?
    Can’t wait to find out!! :)

  • Lydia on August 23rd, 2009 - 5:34pm


    I can’t wait to hear the story behind this!!
    Anyways, it looks like Connie giving Eugene a haircut!! Did she get a new job? Is she looking for job or scholarship opportunities as a salonist? :)
    And it looks like an older Eugene!! He looks Grandpa-ish!!
    Whatever it means, I can’t wait to hear the story!! You do a WONDERFUL job Mr. Locke!!

  • Aaron on August 23rd, 2009 - 6:20pm

  • Julia on August 24th, 2009 - 2:31pm


    Is there going to be a grand prize for the secret word contest? Are Eugene and Katrina going to have any kids?
    If they do will Eugene put homing devices on them? (In the episode, ‘The Business of Busyness’ he said he would have to.)

  • um on August 24th, 2009 - 4:22pm


    guys its not Katrina cause if you look on one of the covers she has blond hair

  • Gracie on August 24th, 2009 - 6:03pm


    Oh I love this picture, it is a great sketch! I think that it is Katrina, not Connie. I love adventures in Odyssey so much, and I can’t wait for this new one to come out!
    By the way, Grady is an amazing character.

  • Jackie on August 25th, 2009 - 7:55am


    Maybe Connie dyed her hair to try to get a boyfriend.He might be coming to Whit’s end and she’s embarassed by Eugene’s long hair.

  • AIO #1 Fan on August 25th, 2009 - 10:26am


    Mabe Connie and Eugine made a bet. If Connie wore a vest she could cut Eugine’s hair.

  • khemenaya on August 25th, 2009 - 10:52am


    Wow connies getting in style .:)Ummmmm i dont think Mitch wears glasses….Does he?

    but that is a pretty cool how we get to see Gary lockes skeetch .In facti think thats awsome .

    original khemenaya :)

  • Rebekka on August 26th, 2009 - 9:55am


    I think thats definetly NOT connie… And Eugene looks old! I think its Katrina and yah.. eugene looks weird!

  • Jessiefan#1 on August 26th, 2009 - 2:29pm


    This is the “real” story behind the picture. The episode is about forgiving yourself and not dwelling on the past or getting caught up in it. Eugene comes into whit’s end one day nearly insane with embarrassment. In his recent work at Campbell College he was mixing some chemicals and misread the directions. Instead of pouring 0.56 milliliters of Fluorine he poured 560 milliliters of fluorine resulting in a huge explosion! The entire Campbell college chemistry building had to be evacuated.

  • Jessiefan#1 on August 26th, 2009 - 2:30pm


    (CONTINUED) Luckily Eugene was able to control the explosion so that no permanent damage was done, but he was, “ most utterly embarrassed and self-conscious.” At Whit’s End, Connie tries to comfort him, telling him that every one makes mistakes and nothing was hurt. Eugene refuses to take comfort however so Connie tries all sorts of methods to help him calm down; finally she brings out her XI45EOFGHSP1TQ3Y Memory Eraser Deluxe.

  • Jessiefan#1 on August 26th, 2009 - 2:30pm


    (CONTINUED) She proceeds to rub his scalp with the tool, trying to make sure he doesn’t notice what she’s doing. (one of the quirks of the machine is that if the recipient is aware of the memory erasure, he will loose his hair) All is going fine until Eugene notices a fly and starts to swat it but he feels the memory eraser and POW!

  • Jessiefan#1 on August 26th, 2009 - 2:30pm


    (CONTINUED) Eugene’s hair starts falling out left and right! It ends up that Eugene receives a complete buzz which of course embarrasses him even more. So that’s the story. Of course Connie had to have memory erasure after that incident, because SHE was so embarrassed. (ok. . .not really)

  • orig.khem on August 26th, 2009 - 5:57pm


    Wow jessiefan #1 you had a pretty good “real” story .That could probly work for an aio .And you write alot ….because i dont do anything like that …..ok i leave a whole bunch of comments .

    orig. khemenaya :) :)

  • Ryan on August 26th, 2009 - 6:41pm


    I think Eugene is gettin a hair cut from Connie. Eugenes getting a hair buzz!

  • Original joe on August 26th, 2009 - 7:34pm


    Jessiefan#1, where did you hear all of this? Can you confirm it’s true?

  • d3 on August 27th, 2009 - 11:30am


    I was wandering..have you guys decided if this IS the front cover for #51 or a suggestion? I’m not saying its bad; its really good!

  • Lindsey S. on August 27th, 2009 - 12:31pm



  • Lindsey S. on August 27th, 2009 - 12:59pm


    If you have been trying to figure out how to do a yellow smiley face then here is how you do it. All you do is click the space bar twice or three times and do :-). Then when you push submit, your comment will come up with a :-) ! Just remember, you must CLICK THE SPACE BAR TWICE! Also, if you plan to put something after the smiley face then you must click the space bar first.
    Have fun!

  • ESTHER on August 27th, 2009 - 2:27pm


    I like the picture, but if that is Eugene, he looks to old. And that looks kinda like Connie.
    P.S. Jason is over 40 years old. In Remembering Jerry (I think that’s the episode) Jason is 8 yo. The episode is set in the Veitman war.

  • AIO #1 Fan on August 27th, 2009 - 4:39pm


    JessieFan #1 how did you come up with something like that? That is like pretty delailed!

  • Jessiefan#1 on August 28th, 2009 - 7:15am


    I cannot confirm the story. I was just guessing what the episode might be about. :) Glad you liked it. :)

  • Jessiefan#1 on August 28th, 2009 - 4:37pm


    You know that would be pretty weird if that was the real story. So, Mr. Hoobler, is it? :)
