Product Description

Like Big Wheels, superballs and bell bottoms, "Davey and Goliath," the stop-motion, three-dimensional animated television program about a boy and his dog, was a much-cherished part of life for many children growing up in the '60s and '70s. Millions of parents and children embraced the lovable duo, their family and friends in warm and entertaining adventures every week from 1962 to 1977. Conceived by "Gumby" creator Art Clokey, "Davey and Goliath" provided a welcome alternative to violent children's programs. Produced by the Lutheran Church in America, the series featured moral themes, earning high praise from TV professionals, religious leaders and viewers alike. Includes four 14-minute episodes.

In the tradition of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Davey and Goliath is the long-standing children's stop-motion 3D-animated television show many of us grew up admiring. Conceived by Art Clokey, creator of Gumby, in the mid-1960s, these stories were embraced as a welcome alternative to the "violent" children's programs and cartoons of the times. What set Davey and Goliath apart from the rest was believable characters, state-of-the-art animation, and familiar situations that taught children the importance of forgiveness, acceptance, acknowledging differences, patience, and hope.

Davey and Goliath: The New Skates and Other Stories contains the following episodes: "The New Skates," "Cousin Barney," "The Time Machine," and "The Mechanical Man." It's a nostalgic return for old fans and will open up a whole new generation to the moral magic of Davey and Goliath. --Rob Bracco

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When I was a child growing up in Dallas, TX, there used to be a program on Channel 5 each Sunday morning called "The Children's Hour." The host would have a child on as a guest each week and someone from the zoo would bring in different animals, then they would switch to a cartoon or another feature. Somethings changed, but each week you could count on a new episode of "Davey and Goliath."
Designed by the same folks who created Gumby, the characters are created in claymation, stop-motion fashion and it's obvious. This is not the same quality as "Chicken Run" in appearance, but the short stories will grab your heart.
The underlying constant is a boy's love and devotion for his dog and the dog's love and devotion for his boy. All episodes have a moral lesson and while the shows were funded by the Lutheran Church, the shows are positively non-denominational. God is mentioned in nearly every episode, but the shows are not preachy, but instead show a loving family centered on Godly values (be kind, don't steal, don't lie, help your friends, etc.).
Goliath, the Great Dane (at least I think that's what kind of dog he's supposed to be) is the best part of the show. Only Davey can understand him, and the voice that comes out of Goliath seems to personify the deep, sensitivity a dog seems to convey when they lay their muzzle on your lap and look up at you with those big brown eyes.
If you haven't seen "Davey and Goliath" before, you owe it to yourself to do so. I don't have kids, but I still enjoy watching these 8 episodes. If I did have kids, they'd be watching this DVD before I'd let them watch some of the more modern garbage that's on TV for kids today.

This is suppose to be a DVD review, so let me tell you about the "features" of this DVD: there are none. (Unless you count a couple of screens of background info on the creation of the Davey and Goliath series as a "feature.")
It is rather obvious that no work was done to clean up the picture or improve the faded colors. In one story, their is a hair or string in the upper left corner that remains viewable for several mintues! Sound is adequate, but you won't be needing a THX certified sound system to bring this disk to life. (Nor will you need Dolby Digital, Dolby Surrond, or even plain old stereo...mono systems will be more than adequate.)
This disk itself is just a plain boring silver affair with the "Davey and Goliath" logo imprinted on it. The case is one of those cheap paper & plastic things like Warner Brothers uses for their fine films. It is obvious that as little money as possible was spent on the production and distrubtion of this DVD.
It is also obvioius that as little money as possible was spent on the actual production of Davey and Goliath...but that's understandable seeing how this was a non-profit televisionn show. The Lutherans were not looking to pick up a lot of ad revenue with their two claymation hereos.
So with all that out of the way, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the purchase of this DVD, especially if you are interested in grounding small children in good, old fashioned moral lessons.
Davey and Goliath wildly succeed where 90% of children productions fall down and die --it gives children valuable life lessons while still managing to be entertaining. In the last 40 years or so, the only thing I can think of that suceeds as well are the very recent "VeggieTales" productions.

I loved these short stories as a kid and I was astonished when I found them on DVD.I bought it for all 7 of my children which range in age from 1 to 14,they all have taken away something from this lesson filled DVD.Finally some good old fashioned wholesome TV that you can enjoy just as much as your kids!

Both my husband and I, growing up in separate regions of the country during the 70s, enjoyed Davey and Goliath as kids. Imitations of Goliath's voice were just part of the pop culture lingo we shared -- "Hey, Da-a-y-v-ey." Now our daughters can enjoy this, and what a blessing the DVD has been for busy parents. After supper, pop in the DVD to occupy our toddler and give us time to clean up. The great things are 1) they're only 15 minutes long and 2) they teach great lessons. Chloe speaks about the mistakes or events Davey is involved with frequently. I hope there will be more DVDs out soon. We love them!

Whether you're a parent, a stop-motion animation buff, or just remember watching this show as a kid, this DVD is a MUST. The animation may be primitive by today's standards, but that only adds to its charm. These are shows that parents and kids can watch together, and enjoy equally. They teach viewers about kindness; forgiveness; obedience; and yes, even faith in God, without being overly preachy or excluding any religious group. Davey is a young boy (who sounds an awful lot like Speedy Alka-Seltzer), and Goliath is his talking dog (I'm not sure of Goliath's breed, he sort of looks like a Great Dane, but not quite big enough). Goliath often acts as Davey's conscience, saying, "I don't knooow, Davey," but Davey never listens to his canine friend, and usually winds up in some trouble...as kids are wont to do. In the end though, Davey learns his lesson and all is well. Think of it as Leave it to Beaver meets Lassie meets Rankin & Bass. It's sad that wholesome programs like Davey & Goliath aren't on TV today - now that we need them more than ever. Thank heavens for DVD! The only complaint I have about this disc is it contains only 8 episodes. I sure hope there's a Volume 2 in the works!
