Storyline

In this stop-action animated series, young Davey Hansen and his best friend (and dog) Goliath live ordinary 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.

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
