Why did Lucy have to leave the show? That was really a bummer. -Submitted by
due to the fact that life is such a short lived experience, childhood soon
takes a person into adulthood. Lucy Schultz' character appeared in the
earliest of the early days of the program and was blessed enough (by the AIO
team of writers) to stay on Adventures in Odyssey for years. Lucy's
character first appeared on the program in Return
to the Bible Room (according to album order), and her last appearance
was in It's a Wrap!
it may seem sad that Lucy had to leave, we must also take into consideration
that all the other original characters were booted off the show as well.
Jimmy Barclay, Donna Barclay, Robyn Jacobs, Melanie Jacobs, Isaac Mortan,
Jack Davis, etc. all went off at their appropriate times. The Barclays and
Lucy Schultz were fortunate and blessed enough to have the opportunity to
continue on the program for the longest amount of time. The Barclays first
appeared in Family Vacation and exited
in Pokenberry Falls, R.F.D., and were
later blessed once again to pop in for another visit in It's
a Pokenberry Christmas.
in the AIO audience weren't too happy about the shifting times, but the
Odyssey team knows what they're doing. I must admit as well that... that
really was a bummer. Lucy made an exciting appearance in
The Triangled Web during
the "Best Small Town Competition" competition.
