** It makes Blackgaard's characterization in the otherwise excellent "The Battle, Parts 1 & 2" a little more difficult to take seriously, because in the beginning of the episode as Regis Blackgaard and Richard Maxwell break into Applesauce and run a systems check that makes Whit's End go haywire, they run into the second level, which requires a password. It makes sense that they panic because they have to get out of there before someone recognizes their presence in the program, but the average 21st-century listener would probably be a bit baffled as to Blackgaard's anger after the fact that Whit "put in a safeguard". Everyday civilians have passwords and codes on their phones, their e-mails, their banks, highly personal files, and just about anything else under the sun, and the school-age children at whom the show is aimed probably have personalized logins for their public school computers or library computers, so it doesn't make any sense to the modern listener why either Blackgaard or Maxwell ''wouldn't'' anticipate a password on a highly restricted, valuable, and confidential computer program created by a master of computer and Internet technology.

** Within the radio show itself, we have the episodes that featured the klutzy police officer David Harley, who was quickly dropped when parents complained that he was giving kids a bad idea about police officers, and the episodes either went [[MissingEpisode missing]] or were either rewritten or rerecorded without Harley in them. In one case the early episode "Lights Out At Whit's End" was pulled, not just because of Harley, but because the episode was just [[BizarroEpisode too weird]], featuring little in the way of aesops (aside from a vague "it's good to spend time with your friends" moral) and ending with a random [[DancePartyEnding free-style rapping session]] that even Tom Riley and Whit take part in! The episode isn't even included in the "[[LostEpisode Lost Episodes]]" album.

* ChildrenVoicingChildren: Usually the child characters on ''Adventures in Odyssey'' are voiced by kids (usually with the result being many of the characters getting either several voice actors or dropped altogether), with the most glaring exceptions being Emily Jones and Olivia Parker[[note]]both introduced when the series returned from hiatus in 2010[[/note]]

** The team considered having the Straussbergs move to Chicago after Rachel and Stephen reconciled in "Life, in the Third Person, Part 2"; ultimately, they were kept in Odyssey and Mandy had two more on-air appearances before she, like the rest of the cast sans the original trio and Wooton, were phased out of the show for the relaunch.

** There are a few episodes from Spring 2000 (the latter half of the infamous [[DorkAge split era]]) that were last aired in 2003 for various reasons: "The Telltale Cat" was seen as too violent, "B-TV: Grace" had a skit that was deemed offensive to the Amish, "Sticks and Stones" might have given kids too many ideas for insults, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking "Career Moves" was just a really weak episode]].
* FandomNod: The various theories about AREM's identity that Alex, Cal, and Sarah come up with in "Grand Opening, Part 1" are all references to the theories fans were tossing around online.



** In the Novacom saga, the writers wanted to bring back Richard Maxwell to be the man behind AREM (a phonetic spelling of the initials "R.M."), but Maxwell's voice actor Nathan Carlson was unavailable, so Robert Mitchell was created for the role instead.

** Also in the Novacom saga, writer Marshal Younger wanted to have a scene where a farmer under the influence of the proto-Novabox goes out and shoots all of his cows; it was shot down when a sound designer protested and Paul [=McCusker=] in particular was concerned about the saga's body count, and to this day Younger considers having suggested it to be an OldShame.
