Family Portraits

What do you think of it and why did so much change from it to AIO. Like why is there still a Whit's End but suddenly it's an ice cream shop not a bookstore/ cafe? If they were going to make so many changes they should have started over completely fresh, but i guess this is all just speculation since it is so far in the past.

One of the main things is that they were suddenly changing their audience. FP was made to air on Dr. Dobson's show, so it was made for adults, with kids listening in. AIO was made for kids, with adults listening in. They also had to revise backstories in order to make the show more sustainable, but they didn't want to scrap their models and characters entirely after they spent so much time into creating characters with so much potential, and who were already popular from the FP series.

The FP album on iTunes and elsewhere has a half-hour feature with Phil, Steve, and Chuck, and it really helps explain a ton of the transitional stuff betwixt the two series.
