I own several of these episodes on previous DVD releases that were not remastered, and I have to say the difference is astounding! Almost all the film blemishes have been removed and the colors are much more pronounced in this remastered edition. Definitely worth purchasing even if you have the earlier DVD or VHS editions. These prints are much better than what was aired on TV in my childhood.

These timeless episodes of Davey and Goliath are terrific! The films are simply as joyful as when they were first produced. The Davey and Goliath series brings with it wonderful lessons of learning, understanding and forgiveness in an exciting and refreshingly entertaining manner.

The Davey and Goliath series is not only religious as many may believe, however, for children and adults of all ages a means of better appreciating the world around us, and memories of simpler, family times.

These restored films, "The Kite", "To The Rescue", "Finders Keeper", "Stranded on an Island", and "Blind Man's Bluff", are as educational today as they were in the 60's and 70's!

Bought this for my wife who is a huge fan of D & G. She loved it! The extras were entertaining and informative. I only hope future DVDs are relased with more than 4 episodes per disc. The episodes are only 15 minutes long.

I was never familiar with "Davey and Goliath." In fact, until this first volume came out, I never even knew it existed. One day, while searching for a good DVD for my daughter, I decided to give this a try. What I found was one of the best children's shows around. "Davey and Goliath" are, simply put, two of the best characters you could ever introduce your child to. This particular volume features four classic episodes and one bonus story. The four fifteen minute episodes are: The Kite, Finders Keepers, Blind Man's Bluff, and Stranded On An Island. "To The Rescue" is the special thirty minute bonus story. Also included is "Oh, Davey!" which is a retrospective look back at the making of and the influence of the characters and the stories.

Produced by the Lutheran Church in America between 1962 and 1975 and the creators of "Gumby," this series about a young boy and his dog live life by standards set by God. This Christian based TV series is well worth viewing, no matter what your religion. Personally, I'm a Catholic, and I see nothing wrong with the moral values young Davey and Goliath teach children. You see the consequences of doing wrong things like telling lies, stealing, and not sharing. "Blind Man's Bluff" takes on the very serious issue of racism.

Unfortunately, a series such as this would find it hard to be placed on television these days for the simple fact that our society has become so caught up in not offending anyone. How dare you teach Christian morals and values to children! Watch this wonderful DVD with your children and be prepared to handle any questions the stories may generate.

Simply wonderful and recommended to anyone who wants their child to grow up with strong morals and values.

great show, recently bought the holiday spectacular box set. best deal if you are considering or trying to figure out which volume of episodes to order. i remember as a kid, getting up at 6 a.m. on a sunday morning and watching at least 2 15 minute episodes on ch.7. the 30 minute holiday specials were excellent as well. thanks for the memories.

This kids show aired every Sunday morning, after Jot went off. These were the only shows, or television we were allowed to watch on Sunday's, back then, as kids.

I remember being fascinated, as any 8-year old would be, by the clay-mation [technology??] effects in producing this show. In fact, nearly every kid I attended church or Sunday school with watched this show, religiously (no pun intended).

I am thrilled that nostalgic children's shows like this have been revived, and are now available on modern DVD for home viewing. Since I have not seen the classic episode's anywhere on broadcast, cable, or scrambler television.

These DVDs are great, they have really good lessons and are CALM! My son loves to watch them, as soon as one ends he says "more". Its so hard to find calm cartoons for kids that dont have some type of "dirty" joking or violence. These are the old school cartoons that we used to watch as kids. I highly recommend them. I think people will be surprised what their kids will watch. I am going to order the next series for his nect birthday.

I loved the 4 episodes. The morals to the stories are better that I remembered. The first episode was very faint in sound, though. I had to turn the volume all the way up to hear it. The other episodes sounded fine. I also ordered the Holiday pack, can't wait to see it!
