    Eugene is one of my favorite characters, he is so funny! He’s a braniac and he has a sense of humor at the same time.

  • The Wolf on June 5th, 2009 - 9:51am


    Eugene is maybe the best character on the show, if it is not Jason. The best ones are the ones with both of them in it. The two of them together are dangerous.

    Eugene is so funny! I like his arguments with Connie because he uses all these big words and Connie says “Why don’t you speak English?” I love their arguments!

  • jenna on September 12th, 2009 - 4:00am


    AWESOME! I would have never guessed that Will Ryan did that awesome immitation of Chris!

  • drama on September 15th, 2009 - 1:07pm


    I remember when I was like 6 and heard Eugene when he came into Whit’s End I kept on asking my mom what all of those big words ment!!I was so glad he found a girl and married her shes perfect for him!I hope they have a baby!Wouldn’t that be AWSOME?

  • isabel on September 20th, 2009 - 5:35pm

  • sYDNI on September 29th, 2009 - 12:26pm


    I love Eugene!My friends made fun of me when I was 7.I wanted to be a geek just like him! HA HA!

  • odysseyfreak on November 18th, 2009 - 4:36pm


    my favorite line that eugene says is one i hear often, and when he’s confused, it sounds funnier with eugene’s voice though, “Huh?”

  • dan on December 21st, 2009 - 9:22am


    i like eugene

  • AIo freak on January 23rd, 2010 - 6:01pm


    Eugene is funny and scientific!

  • AIo freak on January 23rd, 2010 - 6:11pm


    Katie and Will sound great together! But that couldn’t be Will voicing Chris Anthony… could it?

  • AIo freak on January 23rd, 2010 - 6:40pm


    10 cheers for Eugene! [ if you can type that much.]

  • Lynn on January 28th, 2010 - 4:40pm


    Hipp Hipp Horay! I can’t type that much! Eugine looked much better before his makeover

  • sage on February 9th, 2010 - 10:12am


    Eugene is my favorite character! Odyssey wouldn’t be the same without him!

  • Beth on February 12th, 2010 - 5:54pm


    Will Ryan did a great job when he immitated Chris! I couldn’t tell the difference.

  • Eugene Fan on May 1st, 2010 - 7:38pm


    Eugene is one of my favorite characters! Thank you Will Ryan!, and THANK YOU ODYSSEY!

    P.S.-Does anyone know where I can get an Adventures in Odyssey T-shirt?

  • cary on August 2nd, 2010 - 7:48am


    I would have never gussed harlow and Eugene are the same person! that is unless i have heard and read it like 1,000,000 times!

  • madison on August 5th, 2010 - 1:41pm


    I let my little brother listen to the part with Will Ryan doing Chris and he got this funny look of disbelief on his face.

  • summer on September 3rd, 2010 - 5:43pm



  • TRICH on January 20th, 2011 - 11:42am


    Wow! I can’t beleive thats how you look Will! Eugene is one of my Fav Odyssey charectars!( Did i spell charectars right? lol ) Um, but I love Odyssey’s Novacom series the best! Can’t wait for the new episodes!

  • TRICH on January 20th, 2011 - 11:46am



  • trich on March 28th, 2011 - 10:54am

    ( LOL ) 🙂

  • trich on March 28th, 2011 - 11:02am


    XD Harrlow is my fav character to XD 😀 I’m still surprised that the voice of Matthew is a kid, and Emily Jones is a woman, 😀 I guess I should look instead of think.. 😀 Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
    I had no idea that Will played Harlow, my sis was like DUH but i couldn’t tell so she showed me this 🙂 I was TOTALLY surprised! Cool that you covered the tracks! hehehe. Since I listened to Odyssey when little and know want to do voices. I love Odyseey! I have two albums and tons of disc!

  • trich on March 31st, 2011 - 10:57am



  • CARMEN on March 31st, 2011 - 10:59am


    Lol The Wolf! 😀

  • serenity on April 14th, 2011 - 8:33pm


    Adventures in Oddysey wouln’t be Adventures in Oddysey without Eugene.
    He was one of my favorite characters.
    I love listening to Eugenes songs and comments.
    One of my favorite episodes is probably the one where Eugene and Katrina get married. My favorite part is definately when Eugene kiddnaps Katrina.
    But I do love the novacom saga. I think every body did an amzing job on the novacom saga.
    It was cool how the team put clips of what Eugene and Katrina said in other clips into the saga

  • e.j. jiggles on May 2nd, 2011 - 8:53pm


    Eugene is the COOLEST!!!! I’ve never heard anyone that talented on Adventures in Odyssey!!!

  • Adrian on December 30th, 2011 - 8:42am


    I love Eugene and I think that Harlow Doyle is so annoying!

  • Adrian on December 30th, 2011 - 8:45am


    I think he is so annoying because of his. “don’t call me harlow I am detective doyle!” and “Don’t call me detective, call me harlow!” Boy he makes me mad! Sometimes I feel like yelling at him, but it would do no good for two reasons. He is on the radio. And he wouldn’t get it.

  • lindsey on March 6th, 2012 - 8:27pm


    I LOVE Eugene! When I found out he was Petrie I laughed.

  • Janie b. on May 1st, 2012 - 1:50pm


    I love Eugene. He is so awsome!!! Adventures In Odyssey woudn’t be the same without him. 😀 Go Eugene!!!
    Oh, and was that REALLY the voice of Will Ryan as Cris?? That seems impossible. WOW.

  • savannah on July 17th, 2012 - 12:14pm


    Eugene is so cool 😉 :} =) c:

  • EllyJ on March 26th, 2013 - 5:54pm


    Eugene is so funny! I can’t believe Katrina married him! I feel so sorry that they can’t have kids:(:( Sapphirewolf (cool name) is right. Eugene is epic!:) I wish I could play the ukelale:) And all those words! How did he learn all of them?!

  • Flyingrider on October 25th, 2013 - 7:43am


    Well I want to start all of the clubs in the eugene square so it is easier to find them! tell me if you like it! Oh I cant chose who can be the vice so i guess i will pick I luv shona because she isnt in as many clubs but stormshadow you can be the secretary of the clubs if you want. What you would do is figure out who is in the clubs and who is vice and prez.

  • Flyingrider on October 25th, 2013 - 7:47am


    Behind the Scenes of Kidsboro, plus a never before heard “Goodbye Eugene” scene! that is where the Connie club is for ILUV SHONA AND STORMSHADOW. dont tell anybody about this yet everything needs to be prepared first. We will pick a launch date to give this away

  • Flyingrider on October 25th, 2013 - 7:51am


    STORMSHADOW this (Sound Designer Q & A: How did you get a job behind-the-scenes? And do the actors make sound effects?) is the music site so we need to prepare them

    Oh and all of these are on this page. We will talk about starting clubs at this bar and figure out an empty space on here

  • stormshadow on October 25th, 2013 - 10:03am


    good idea!!

  • i luv shona on October 25th, 2013 - 1:34pm


    I don’t get it?????

  • Flyingrider on October 26th, 2013 - 9:53am


    I LUV SHONA all of the clubs are in this corner( eugene) and you can make more clubs on the empty podcasts let me know which one you are using and i will to ( that goes for stormshadow and superman!). What was that i heard about stormshadow not being involved in clubs. Well i gotta go!

  • Flyingrider on October 28th, 2013 - 11:23am


    My post didnt go through!

  • Flyingrider on October 28th, 2013 - 12:56pm


    I LUV SHONA we put all of the clubs on this page( not this podcast but “eugene”)i have started a couple of the older ones

  • Flyingrider on October 29th, 2013 - 1:47pm


    Where is everyone? I thought we were going to get all of the clubs ready on here

  • Flyingrider on October 29th, 2013 - 2:58pm


    lets prepare and i am gonna start preparing clubs

  • stormshadow on October 30th, 2013 - 10:01am


    WAS UP???

  • Flyingrider on October 30th, 2013 - 10:52am


    The clubs are pretty much ready. If you have an idea for another club lets let each other know so that we know the club spot is empty. Ok when do you want to launch this?? I am ready any time as i said new clubs are welcome.

  • Flyingrider on October 30th, 2013 - 10:58am


    there are 3 clubs at the bottom of the page that are open so if you are gonna start one please let us know which one you are gonna use. These are the names of the empty ones:

    Torry Martin speaks about Wooton’s Random Ramblings, plus Emily and Matthew solve a mystery!

    Devotional: The Mystery of the Clock Tower

    Hear the finalists for the Avery Awards, plus the producers answer your questions about Whit

    We are gonna open this maybe November 3 “day lights savings”If we have it ready. Let me know

  • Flyingrider on October 30th, 2013 - 12:19pm


    THIS IS CLUB CENTRAL JUST SO YOU KNOW. We need to talk about the launch date and we need 3 more clubs to fill in eugene or someone new may start one there and this is our central and it will be confusing. So we need suggestions i started a book club. But my last posted openings are still open. My last post is an idea for a launch date. I need 2 of you guys 2 post here by Nov 2nd and ok it or i wont start it then. Oh and STORMSHADOW if SUPERMAN DOESNT get on by then then would you tell him? cont

  • Flyingrider on October 30th, 2013 - 12:28pm


    Pretty please!! I hope to see you hear. Oh wait make that tuesday the 5th because i just realized the 3rd is a SUNDAY.
    So how about this coming Tuesday the 5th so we can advertise. When we advertise dont tell them where it is just make them get really excited! And on Tuesday morning get busy telling them where it is. Please get back with me by monday the 4th! Gotta go!

    Like that??????????

  • stormshadow on October 30th, 2013 - 1:34pm


    i say we wait till new years and then launch it that way we can work out all the kniks and get it all sorted out

  • stormshadow on October 31st, 2013 - 8:13am


    i guess we can do that flyingrider!!!

  • Flyingrider on October 31st, 2013 - 8:29am


    STORMSHADOW i dont really want to wait THAT LONG but lets see what SUPERMAN and I LUV SHONA think. What kinda kinks do we have?

  • superman on October 31st, 2013 - 8:40am


    I think it would be to confusing if we had all the clubs on one podcast.Because then people might get confused as to who is in there club and which club they are a part of.Maybe club central could be a place where we go to advertise our clubs and tell about new ones.BTW here is the link for the Jay/Barret club type jay into the search bar and then click on the first [email protected] You are announcer and secretary if you want.

  • i luv shona on October 31st, 2013 - 10:00am


    we need a club idea that everyone will like!

  • Flyingrider on October 31st, 2013 - 5:07pm


    SUPERMAN sure i will be the anoouncer and secretary

  • Flyingrider on October 31st, 2013 - 5:07pm
