Sadly, nothing like this for our children today....
24 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

is regularly broadcast. I agree with most previous reviews, that this is a sad commentary on our broadcasting system, in America at least.

What was so universal about this show is while it did have a message, it was not heavy-handed, nor sanctimonious. Davey and Goliath get into regular mischief, he learns a lesson, but it is not overly preachy, nor is it violent and imbecilic(which is what we see today).

The writing is insightful and humanistic. How refreshing to know that, at least in the 60's and 70's we had access to quality children's programming.

I hope it is possible to buy a complete set of DVD's. My seven year old is just beginning to appreciate this. 10/10
