Davey and Goliath
was a childrens' television
series produced by the Lutheran Church in the 1950s and 1960s and
televised widely across the United States, the Caribbean and
around the world. Although Davey has
not appeared on broadcast television for nearly 35 years, it still
is remembered as a pop culture "icon" with continued
television and film mentions.
