Doll-A-Day 2017 #61:Davey and Goliath and Family

  Yesterday I hung laundry out in the WINDY weather. When I took it down it was getting a bit chilly. Today it has snowed on and off all day! My poor daffodils don't know what's going on. here's what they looked like yesterday before the snow started.
The myrtle is coming in nicely too.

Today's doll is a whole family...and the family dog! It's the Hansen family, and their dog Goliath.

Readers of the blog may have seen my Davey and Goliath hand puppets,and heard about me watching the TV show as a kid.

The show was done in stop motion, and the characters were brought to life by Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby.

These figures are made by Majestic Studios.

They came in cool packages that look like an old fashioned TV.

I actually have two Daveys,because the only way to get Davey's dad John was to get the two pack of Davey and John,and the only way to get Goliath was to get the two pack of Davey and Goliath!

The Mom and sister Sally came in another two pack.

There were actually 2 sets of Davey and Goliath. One set had Goliath standing, as seen here, and one had him sitting.

Dad John Hansen and mom Elaine Hansen are 7" tall.

Sally is just over 5" tall.

And Davey himself is 5 1/2" tall.

The figures have limited articulation, but that fits in with their look of Claymation figures.

None of the figures can sit down, but they can all move their head and arms.

 They even have arm and wrist joints.

Even Goliath can move his head. 

You can visit the official Davey and Goliath website HERE.
  See you tomorrow for another doll.

  1. How precious these are. I too remember watching this as a kid. Stop motion is classic.


Thanks in advance for your comments.
