    At a party last night, in between shots and fistfights, a few of us got into a discussion of Sunday morning shows we used to watch as kids in the 60's and 70's. Although most of my memories are of the "classics" (Johnny Quest, Rocky and Bullwinkle, George of the Jungle, etc.) and a few obscure ones that I found hilarious in my teens (Commander McBrag, Fractured Fairy Tales, Sherman and Peabody and others), I remember a Christian show with pithy life messages that were meant to be uplifting. The show was in claymation animation (or a primitive form of it) and featured a young Christian boy and his claymation Christian dog (there was disagreement as to whether he was a talking dog or not; I seem to remember him being a bit preachy). Sadly, no one could remember the name of the show. If any of you old fogies remember the show and more particulary the name of the show, I'd appreciate the info.

    Learn to google... I guess it was "Davey and Goliath". http://www.daveyandgoliath.org/

    I grew up in Germany, and most of the time we didn't have a TV anyway, so I haven't seen it.

    That's it! What the heck was I supposed to Google? I see they've actually recently released a new Christmas special and some DVD's of the original show. Maybe I'll pick a few up.

    The site doesn't answer the critical burning question: Could the claymation Christian dog talk?

    I don't know.

    But it can't be as funny as those other make-believe comedy characters;

    Mary the virgin, Joseph the carpenter. Jesus the risen, Judas the betrayer, Thomas the doubter, Bush the burner, etc, etc. ad nauseum.

    I used "claymation Christian" and found it pretty quickly (over this link: http://www.animateclay.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=printview&t=797&start=15 ). Go and take a google class.

    Maybe one of the Quicktime movies here will answer the question.

    OK
    Goliath could talk, but only to Davey.

    Yes, the dog could talk. As I recall, the dog often presented him with the deeper insights into his faith, sometimes challenging his thinking. He always spoke like he had a really swollen tongue. I can't remember the TV commercial, but there was once very very recently whcih did a take-off on the series.

    I must also add that the idea of a talking clamation dog espousing theology isn't nearly as strange as a talking Pat Robertson.

    Lighten up, Ms. Know-it-All; I have an awful hangover and can't be expected to Google and read about animated characters properly. At least I was right about the talking claymation Christian dog.

    Davey and Goliath sold out to the MAN by doing a Mountain Dew commercial.

    And I am sick and can't be expected to feel sorry for someone who has a hangover. 😠

    Sadly the show ended abruptly when, in what would be the last episode, Goliath told Davey to wear his Mother's underwear and set fire to his bed. I'm not sure how that episode got past the censors, so don't bother asking.
