As for presenting 'Davey and Goliath' in this day and time, truth be told, I think it's exactly what these children need, especially with what's "continually going on in our society". When God and Jesus and what 'they' mean to ALL of mankind is being done away with, because of our political correctness and loss of morality, I'd love for 'Davey and Goliath' to return and 'maybe' be updated, in order to address these issues. With the death of Clokey, I don't think it's going to happen, and perhaps it shouldn't when in the end all the 'real meaning' might be tossed aside. It was good while it lasted and with the DVD's and The Trinity Broadcasting Network, I can now be satisfied with seeing 'Davey and the Gang' all over again.
Don't worry if others put you down, say you're not worth watching, or any other comments like this, as the exact same thing has been said about other shows that have turned out to be 'rare jewels'. I wait in anticipation every time Tuesday roles around, just so I (and quite a few others) can see what's coming next.
Keep your heads up, your prayers towards God and heaven, and let the 'true' fans of your show, show you just how much they enjoy what you're doing. "Nursing at it's very best, fun also included!" Thanks to one and all.
Sad to say I'm not surprised they're no longer on the air, ABC one of the very 'few' channels at that day and time to even air shows of this nature (as well as the 'famous' Davey and Goliath claymation series), what an awful shame we don't get to see those shows right now when we need them the most.
If there was 'any' way that I could get them back on television, I'd do it in a flash, without a moments hesitation, as I also remember actors like Martin Sheen and a few notable others who made wonderful guest appearances on the show.
I really enjoyed watching Doyle and his not-so-human side-kicks, they brought humor to all that they did, and made you want to come back for more each Saturday. As one of the other posters stated "a laugh a minute" and some of the best humor around.
While William Powell and Carole Lombard are considered to be excellent actors, David Niven, June Allyson, and Jay Robinson are equally as talented in their 'updated' roles. I find it very sad that movies like these are no longer presented these days, when we seem to need all the laughter we can get these days, a movie such as this would help to lift many a dark spirit.
I can't wait to see it presented on DVD (instead of VHS) like the 1936 version is right now.
I also enjoyed Jean Carlos Simancas (Caetano Nascimento), who seems to be good in just about anything that he does, as well as Trina Medina (Felicidad Martinez) in her first acting role. Brenda Hanst (Tibisay Maria Blanco Guaramato) and Juan Carlos Tarazona (Rolando) turned out to be my second favorite couple in the show.
