How Kids Corner Borrows for Odyssey and How Odyssey Borrows from Kids Corner
Hello all. Today, I will be talking about the things KC borrows from AIO, and pt 2 will be about how AIO borrows from KC!! Enjoy. As stated in this post, KC and AIO are different audio dramas there is some overlap with lessons learned, and character traits. Stay tuned for this post.
1. Grandpa Anole
The character of the 'old wise guy' was 'potentially' created by AIO in 1987. KC created Liz and Friends in 2004. (They might have had another audio drama beforehand.) Johnny Anole is like the guy that the kids go to when they are in trouble. However, he owns a farm and is not vey tech savvy like Whit.
2. Liz and Lucille Dynamic
Liz is like the Curt Stevens of KC and Lucille is basically the Lucy of KC. I know I went over this in more detail before, but it is important to this post.
3. The episode "The War Hero"
In that episode Joe Fineman has a secret about World War Two. He fled and save a bunch of children. He get awards for saving the children, but he refuses them. This is extremally similar to "All the News That's Fit to Print" when Liz finds out what really happened to his hero. He was fleeing and 'captured' 12 snakes in the Great Snake War. However he was also fleeing, and the snakes expected to surrender anyway.
4. The Episode "Everything New"
Kids Corner created this episode first. Liz and Lucille created a play to attempt to save the old barn (which they do). This show illustrated God's redemption. AIO created "A Simple Reminder" as a Club episode which basically makes the same episode except it is over the internet as a virtual Bible study. I heard the KC episode first so it was funny hearing the AIO rendition of it.
5. The Episode Swamped
The episode involves a football game where Liz does something stupid with friends because some kids pressure him. He and the others, including Spike, try to throw the Marauders statue into the swamp because they think they took their mascot. Surprise the mascot was being cleaned, so when the Marauders broke in they stole nothing. This is similar to "A Page From The Playbook" because Buck, Cooper, and Jay attempt to steal the opposing teams playbook, because he supposedly stole theirs.

Jesus Loves You
Sin doesn’t go away on it’s own. Somebody has to pay for it. Who could it be? God knew there was only one choice: His own Son Jesus. Jesus came to earth and did something we could never do: He obeyed perfectly. He never messed up. He never even had a bad thought. But He still took the horrible punishment for sin by dying on the cross. God put all of His anger on Jesus. Jesus didn’t deserve that! Why did He take the punishment for something He didn’t do? He did it so that you and I don’t have to. You mean we don’t have to pay for our own sins? Now that’s GOOD NEWS!
He takes our bad out and puts His good in. Do you still mess up sometimes? Me too. But now we can have something we didn’t have before: forgiveness! Pray and ask God to forgive your sins because of what Jesus did. Instead of being guilty you’ll be forgiven. Now that’s not just good news – that’s the BEST news! Do you know how to look up verses in your Bible? Give these a try to read more about the best news ever.
