Editorial Reviews

In 1960, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America began producing a stop-motion animated television series for children. Produced by Gumby creators Art Clokey and Ruth Clokey Goodell, the shows followed Davey Hansen and his talking dog, Goliath, as they learned biblical lessons about being responsible, caring for the environment, and accepting others. Now, you can rejoin these wholesome characters in this refurbished 50th anniversary edition that features 36 episodes on six DVDs, including nine hours of quality entertainment for the whole family.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

The discs are good quality (not HD) but just fine.

I highly recommend this show for your kids (10 and under) or for you if you loved the show when you were little!

Lots of great values and morals that are lacking in our world today.

The 5 stars is for the show. However, several of the titles in this 6-DVD set (16 of the 36) have been previously released in the last few years. The ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) can't seem to choose or keep a good distributor, so the Bridgestone Media Group has started over on the release of all the titles.

So, if you want the new stuff, you may have to repurchase the previously released titles. Thank you, ELCA for the required double-dip. Hopefully, Bridgestone will finish the job before distribution company XYZ starts over yet again.

The episodes appear to be the exact versions released around 2004 and 2005, so the quality is fine.

I paid less than $32 w/shipping. There is quite a bit of variance in pricing out there.

Many people make fun of Davey and Goliath, but for safe, yet simple children's entertainment with an excellent message, it is hard to beat.

I use to watch Davey and Goliath when I was little and living in New York. I hadn't seen any of these for 30 years. I found it amazing that I remembered each and every episode just like I did when I was little. It brought back some great memories. I highly recommend this show for your kids (10 and under) or for you if you loved the show when you were little!

Before Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato from the "Veggie Tales" videos, there was Davey, and his dog, Goliath. The stop-motion animation series was produced by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in the 1950s and 1960s to provide a Christian-based show for young viewers.

The 15-minute episodes center on Davey, a likable, polite, and hard-working kid who wonders how to apply his Christian faith and values to his everyday experiences. What made this show so approachable was its lack of good and evil dichotomies. Rather than sin and sinner storylines, these shows simply convey Davey's yearning to understand his place in God's creation. While some of the shows deal with large social issues such as bullying, racism, and death, the majority of the plotlines explore Davey's daily journey of a faith-based life with Goliath by his side, both as companion and conscience.

Uncomplicated storylines, simple set designs of familiar characters and places, a thoughtful and kind central figure whose seriousness is balanced by his goofy yet loyal dog, anchor each show. The show's messages of love and forgiveness can trace its roots all the way back to Jesus and the New Testament teachings. I remember the powerful impression these shows had on me as a child. Despite the low-tech quality when compared to today's animation, my kids are equally riveted by this series.

This review applies to all the other shows within this beautifully produced series. Highly recommend for your family.

I ordered this for my 3 year old son. I wanted him to watch what I had watched as a child. I'm very happy. The discs are good quality (not HD) but just fine. We enjoyed watching Davey and Goliath and I'm so glad I found this set here.

There are so many stories here. I had another set of Volumes 1-4 which my little girl went through so many times, they got worn.
This has so many more episodes and the price is great. Greatly appreciated. Arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

I loved these as a child, my kids also loved them.Now my grandchildren watch them. They offer great lessons and are an alternative to the attention shortening children's fare they commonly produce today. Restored nicely.

I watched these as a kid and loved them, so I bought both sets for my kids. Can't beat the <$10 price either.
