OK...So I AM a Conservative I guess...
What great memories! In the DFW Metroplex, kids got to watch this show on "The Children's Hour", a Sunday morning entertainment/educational show that ran just before Oral Roberts weekly proclamation that "something good is going to happen to you!".Davey & Goliath was a Lutheran church based show with heavy religious and moral overtones, but it never came across as heavy handed as did "Jot", the other long running series featured on the Children's Hour. The show featured a young boy, Davey Hansen, his dog Goliath, his family & friends and the everyday moral choices young people face, as well as the consequences of those choices, right or wrong. It's been well noted

by other reviewers that this kind of show would never fly in todays ultra PC "don't offend anybody" world, and I find that unfortunate. Regardless of your religious beliefs,this show preached a higher standing of morality and common courtesy toward your fellow man that I find sorely lacking in todays world. No matter if you're Christian, Muslim, Buddist, Atheist or whatever, the values of responsibility and consequences for you own actions, love of your neighbor and moral awareness that this show emphasized are values we could all benefit from. I do find it humorous that the moral sounding board and conscience for Davey, his dog Goliath, was voiced by the town drunk from the Andy Griffith show, Hal Smith. If you've never seen this show and have an opportunity, watch it if for no other reason than to get a pulse on what children's TV was like before "Cat Dog" and all the other mentally and spiritually bankrupt garbage our kids have to watch today.
