Funny you mention Daaaavy. My sis just picked me up a Davey and Goliath DVD out of the Target $1 bin. What a hoot watching it. So incredibly corny but, it was slim pickins on a Sunday morning for cartoons in those days.

The Childrens Hour with Bill Kelley... I always wanted to be on that show, I was the perfect age for it. But my dad worked for Channel 5 so I wasn't eligible.

My favorite bit was the Treasure Trove from the FW Museum of Science and History.

Davey and Goliath was ok, not my favorite part of the show, but as mentioned above, there wasn't a lot of children's programming on Sunday mornings in the 70s - we didn't get 20 channels of cartoons and 4 Disney channels.

There's a show on Adult Swim that's a parody of Davey and Goliath called Moral Orel, which I find hillarious.

The Children's Hour also ran episodes of Jot, which was essentially an animated emoticon with a moral. They also showed those ancient Warner Brothers cartoons from the 1930's, when Daffy Duck was truly daffy. But the best part was when Bill Kelley and his guest read the Sunday comics from the Star-Telegram, and he had to help his guest pronounce "bodacious" whenever they read Snuffy Smith.

Ahh... the comics. My dad told me that they taped that show on Wednesday afternoons, which rocked my brain as an 8 year old - I couldn't understand how they could read the Sunday comics on Wednesday.

If I recall correctly, Davey and Goliath was actually produced by Clokey Productions, the same people that did Gumby. The United Lutheran Church in America commissioned it, but Clokey did the stop motion filming. In fact, if you watch both, some of the figures cross over to the other show. (There are some people characters on Gumby occassionally). They are different "characters", but the same little claymations.

I don't recall if Davey or Goliath were ever on Gumby, that would probably be a little too obvious, but their friends did.

Those were about the only shows the company did.

I stand corrected. Looked all over for an obit. and there is none there. Maybe back in when he retired I stored that away as a methaphorical 'death' i.e. of innocence, a bygone era, etc.

Couldn't get anything like "Mr. Peppermint" to fly these days, could you?
