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.

I know that it might seem strange, but these little stories were and are so entertaining. I can't believe that they stopped producing these little stories. Perhaps if Clokey Production and the Lutheran Church had continued with these little stories for children and adults, things would be different in our world today. Davey and Goliath hit on so many themes. Racism, obedience, fear, hope, friendship, tolerance, etc.
Actually, Davey and Goliath was one of the first animated series that showed white/black relations in the friendship of Davey and Jonathan. I think this series may have also aided in changes to our society in the 60's. I sincerely believe that Nancy Moore should be applauded as well as the Lutheran Church and Clokey Productions for Davey and Goliath.
