Must See Movies–Davey and Goliath, Volume 10 (Review)




Teach your child about getting along and starting over with the 1967 special "New Year Promise." Davey resolves to stop yelling at his sister Sally for her mistakes, but he soon finds it easier to stop talking to her altogether. When Sally runs away from home thinking Davey doesn't love her, Davey and Goliath go on an adventure to find her in time to sound the bell at church and ring in the new year.

Volume 10 of this enhanced collection also contains the previously lost episode "Louder Please," in which a deaf neighbor teaches Davey to appreciate the sounds around him, and "The Zillion Dollar Combo," in which Davey's band must choose between a paying gig and performing for free at a children's hospital. Other episodes in this 50th anniversary DVD include "Upside Down and Backwards," "Six-Seven-Six-Three," and "Who's George?"

My Thoughts:

Growing up, I would watch Davey and Goliath every Sunday on television with my brothers after returning home from church.  In the beginning, I was too young to understand the true nature of the cartoon, but loved the claymation characters.  But, as I got older, I began to view the popular television series in a different light, and learned valuable lessons that I was able to apply to my life.  Even though this series aired on broadcast television from 1960-1975, it has continued to be a family favorite, as it is played on various Lutheran cable channels to date.  This is great, as those who watched this series growing up, can now share their love for Davey and Goliath with their children. 

I was especially excited to view this DVD as it contained a lost episode, Louder Please, as well as a New Year’s Special, New Year’s Promise.  What a fitting way to ring in the New Year.  While my family was in town visiting, we gathered around the television, with our children, and watched this DVD. This is one of memories I will remember for 2011.  And, even though I had seen the episodes on this DVD before, it was nice to see them again.  They never get old.  And, with age, come a greater appreciation for this television series, and what is has done for families who grew up watching it for generations.

So, if you grew up watching Davey and Goliath on television, why not pick up this volume, as well as other volumes in the series?
