You have to love any news related to “Davey and Goliath,” the goofy but lovable, claymation children’s TV series produced by the Lutheran church during the ’50s and ’60s.
For the last decade or so, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has trying to pump up the D&G legacy with bobble-heads, a TV documentary and more.
Now the ELCA is releasing “The Lost Episodes,” a DVD with 10 episodes that have never been seen.
According to the website:
Some of the episodes were pulled from broadcast stations over 40 years ago, and some have never even been distributed on television or video. Content issues, political incorrectness or unapproved visuals kept these episodes in the vault. Now re-edited to acceptable video standards for young children, we hope you and your family enjoy these Lost Episodes of the beloved Davey and Goliath television series.
Content issues? Political incorrectness? Unapproved visuals?
What exactly were Davey & Goliath doing and saying back in the day?
Now that these shows have been edited to “acceptable video standards,” we’ll probably never know.
What a mystery.
