You have a Parody section but don't include Moral Orel?? Needs a link, at least. Aggiememenon (talk) 18:06, 28 May 2009 (UTC)Aggiememenon

Thank yous[edit]

Thanks for all the hard work that went into this article -- especially the info on censorship. (talk) 17:40, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Another parody to add?[edit]

I suspect that the short film "He Was Once" (Mary Hestand, 1989) is, at least partly, a parody of this. There is a boy called Davey; he has a dog; the actors move in a freakish puppet-like manner; and it is based on a moral lesson about lying (though surreally inverted).

"In these episodes, Davey was junior high-school age and occasionally became very rebellious. His antics included pouring paint in a water well, hanging from a dinosaur's head in a museum, telling a handicapped child to shoot himself for being so "dumb" and cheating on tests in school."

I have a very hard time believing that. Unless someone provides a cite I'm going to assume it's vandalism. El Mariachi (talk) 02:41, 16 January 2017 (UTC)

1961 release into syndication[edit]

The article listed, without reference, "January 1, 1960" as the debut date for the show, apparently based on the idea that the show was created in 1960 and that January 1 was the first day of that year. However, there is no record of the syndicated show earlier than 1961. The earliest mention of Davey and Goliath was in February 1961, when it was hailed as a new offering for children, and the earliest airdate seems to have been on Saturday, February 25. I've updated the article with the citations. Mandsford 16:35, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
