I was never familiar with "Davey and Goliath." In fact, until this first volume came out, I never even knew it existed. One day, while searching for a good DVD for my daughter, I decided to give this a try. What I found was one of the best children's shows around. "Davey and Goliath" are, simply put, two of the best characters you could ever introduce your child to. This particular volume features four classic episodes and one bonus story. The four fifteen minute episodes are: The Kite, Finders Keepers, Blind Man's Bluff, and Stranded On An Island. "To The Rescue" is the special thirty minute bonus story. Also included is "Oh, Davey!" which is a retrospective look back at the making of and the influence of the characters and the stories.
Produced by the Lutheran Church in America between 1962 and 1975 and the creators of "Gumby," this series about a young boy and his dog live life by standards set by God. This Christian based TV series is well worth viewing, no matter what your religion. Personally, I'm a Catholic, and I see nothing wrong with the moral values young Davey and Goliath teach children. You see the consequences of doing wrong things like telling lies, stealing, and not sharing. "Blind Man's Bluff" takes on the very serious issue of racism.
Unfortunately, a series such as this would find it hard to be placed on television these days for the simple fact that our society has become so caught up in not offending anyone. How dare you teach Christian morals and values to children! Watch this wonderful DVD with your children and be prepared to handle any questions the stories may generate.
Simply wonderful and recommended to anyone who wants their child to grow up with strong morals and values.
