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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

When I was growing up, I only saw a few episodes of Davey and Goliath, but now that's it's on DVD I bought volume 1 and 3 and my husband and I can't stop watching it and we are in our 30s. My favorite one was the Good Neighbor when Davey helped a girl, Mary who fell off her wagon and was lost. This series touches my heart. It's better than the garbage they have today. I remember watching it on Sundays and the first things I always noticed that they were made of clay like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. When I was watching Gerald Ford's funeral on TV at Grace Episcipal Church in Michigan at they end they played the song from Davey and Goliath by Martin Luther. I kept thinking about the good times I had watching Davey and Goliath.
