We've closed our 14th poll question and tallied the final results. In the poll we asked Adventures in Odyssey fans what their favorite Barclay family vacation episode was. There were five options and the majority of participants agreed that Aloha, Oy! is their favorite one.
The three-part episode Aloha, Oy! was first aired in 1994 and can be found on Album 19: Passport to Adventure. It is a classic show and features not only the Barclay family on vacation in Hawaii, but also Lawrence Hodges and the Rathbones who tag along on the trip. In second place in the poll came The Barclay Family Ski Vacation with 27.27% of the votes. This episode has the Barclays going to a cold place instead of a hot one and you'll find it included on Album 7: On Thin Ice. What's interesting to note is that both of these top-rated episodes feature in them the possibility that someone might have a crush on Donna Barclay. In The Barclay Family Ski Vacation, Donna hopes that her ski instructor Robb likes her, and in Aloha, Oy!, the obnoxious bully Rodney Rathbone has a crush on her. Of course, Donna has had other love interests. In Album 13's Modesty is the Best Policy she goes out with Jack Davis. And then in the Album 23 episode Preacher's Kid she almost goes out with Eric Myers. How did Donna's future turn out? Since her last appearance was on Album 31 in the episode It's a Pokenberry Christmas, we have yet to find out. Maybe the Barclay family will show up again in the future. Thanks so much to everyone who voted in our poll. We will be posting a new poll question soon. Meanwhile, you can make your own poll suggestions.
