The voting for the AIO Update's latest poll question has ended and it's time to announce the final results. We asked Adventures in Odyssey fans who their favorite character in the Washington family was, and we got a big response. The Washingtons first appeared right after the Novacom Saga ended, in the episode The Toy Man on Album 39, and last appeared on Album 50. For this poll question, in first place came Marvin Washington, with over a third of the votes cast. In second place was the dad, Ed, and in third place was cousin Xavier.
Marvin Washington has been in a total of thirty-four episodes, more than any other Washington family member. And unlike any other, Marvin was also voiced by different actors over the years. He was first played by Kyle Massey in The Toy Man, but by his second episode, called The American Revelation, he was already being voiced by a new actor, Jordan Calloway, who played him for twelve shows. And then actor Kendre Barry made his debut as Marvin in Sunday Morning Scramble on Album 43. As we're thinking about the Washingtons, it seems appropriate at this time to remember the actor who voiced the mother Elaine, J. Karen Thomas, as she passed away in March 2015.

A new AIO Update poll will be posted online soon.
