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.

Some of my best memories as a boy were getting up early on Saturday mornings to watch "Davey and Goliath." they were enjoyable, moralistic without being heavy-handed about it, and the characters were very much like people you knew, not goody-goody types. Unfortunately, kids today are very different, and I doubt that they would respond to it the way our generation did (I'm 42 now). Still and all, a good show, despite what the authors of "Saturday Morning Fever" have to say, and I still get a nostalgic twinge when I see it on cable TV these days.
Incidentally, I didn't realize until I saw IMDB's profile that upright father figure John Hanson was voiced by Hal "Otis-the-Mayberry-town-drunk" Smith. Talk about diametricaly opposed!
