Davey and Goliath

Show Summary

This classic series is about the adventures of a boy and his dog. This classic kids show, created by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America provided entertainment, comedy, and moral lessons for young children. Although the scripts for this show were written by the Lutheran church of America, the team Art and Gloria Clokey (best known for their hit "Gumby") did all the claymation. Art and Gloria were thrilled to do this especially because they felt that it would be their way of contributing what children need to hear. This is a gem, and in 2003/2004 it is scheduled to return with all new shows.

  • This series was a chidhood favorite.

    10
    As a chidhood favorite this TV show had something that Tv shows now days do not have at all innocence, morals, and life lessons. I loved the claymation. Also the pet effect that added his talking dog. In this stop-action animated series, young Davey Hansen and his best friend (and dog) Goliath live ordianry suburban American lives. In each episode, Davey and Goliath experience some form of moral conflict either in themselves or in their friends. Drawing upon the guidance of his parents, his teachers, and his own religious beliefs, Davey doesn't always do the right thing, but he does always come away from the experience having learned valuable moral and life lessons.moreless
  • One of the strangest shows I have ever seen.

    1.0
    When I was little, we used to go visit my aunt on the weekends. She was cool. We'd watch bowling, roller derby and monster movies.



    And then, this came on.



    Far from achieving the effect of teaching me anything, the show was actually frightening. The music was rambling and off-key, the boy and his dog seemed to wander off and nearly get killed in almost every episode, and the lessons centered around the need to absolutely obey everything you were ever told.



    I bet a lot of people are in therapy over this.



    Now, I do like claymation, but that's no reason to put up with this mess. At least 'Gumby' was funny every so often.moreless
