    There were about 65 15-minute shorts, and about 7 30-minute shorts during those 15 years.

    Reviving an old thread, I never did see any mention of D&G released last year.

    Does anyone have any new information on what's up with the release? I hope the new special last year did well on the Hallmark Channel.

    We now have a date for the first DVD that Starlight Home Entertainment is releasing: June 7, 2005.
    Description
    This first Special 2-Disc Collector’s Edition features the all-time classic episodes, "The Kite," "Finders Keepers," "Blind Man’s Bluff," and "Stranded on an Island," plus the 30-minute special, "To The Rescue"!
    DVD BONUS MATERIAL:

    Well, I don't find any information on it, but Amazon is announcing a new Davey & Goliath DVD coming out:
    Davey and Goliath:Lost Episodes
    List Price: $16.99
    Format: DVD
    Product Details
    * Format: Closed-captioned, Color, NTSC
    * Region: Unknown.

    Amazon is now saying that Davey & Goliath: The Lost Episodes will be released this year, on September 25, 2007. While I am not holding my breath, I do hope it does get released eventually. And they fixed the mispelling too!

    Maybe old news to some of you, but looks like "Davey & Goliath: The Lost Episodes" will finally come out this year! TvshowsonDVD has the new cover art, and they say it should be coming out on April 7th.
    Keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

    I pre-ordered this latest set the moment Gord's site listed it a few weeks ago. I had it pre-ordered the first time it was supposed to be released as well. Definitely something I'm looking forward to.

    I see that there are 4 volumes of Davey and Goliath coming out on February 23, 2010.
    I haven't been able to find out much about these, but I am afraid that they may be the same 4 volumes that Starlight came out with in 2005, rather than new releases.

    Does anyone else have any information on these? I didn't find anything on tvshowsondvd.

    We hope you and your family enjoy the 50th Anniversary Edition from the beloved Davey and Goliath television series. Look for more episodes to be released soon. For more information visit www.daveyandgoliath.org.

    I'm a huge D&G fan. I'd bought most of the scattered DVD releases over the years. I had no idea that Bridgestone has released ALL the episodes on 12 volumes. So, I took the plunge today and ordered directly from their website. Looking forward to finally seeing all of these (especially the longer specials)!

    You won't be disappointed, Paul. I bought the entire set earlier this year and am loving it. And the specials, especially the Christmas episode, are fantastic.

    I had no idea all of D & G had been released either. I have bought some of the earlier releases, but they started double dipping and I eventually decided to wait before getting any more. I noticed they have some DVD-R sets available on Amazon, but it sounds like you are referring to something different. Are you certain these volumes contain the complete series. If so, I will want to pick up these 12 volumes, too.

    Yep, the set I ordered yesterday appears to be the complete series (perhaps Gary can back me up on this). I noticed that Amazon has the complete set broken down into two sets (Vol. 1-6 & Vol. 7-12). I was going to order from Amazon, but noticed that Bridgestone had the entire series (Vol 1-12) available for a bit less money (about $70, shipping included).

    From the sets I originally bought, I have been able to acquire 40 of a total of 65 (15) minute episodes. In addition, I have 4 of the 6 (30) minute specials. There is one other episode listed as a special that is 15 minutes long, and it is available only from Augsburg Fortress. (Not sure what that is all about). This info is from the Davey and Goliath website.

    What I did not realize is that there is now a set of Vol 1-12 available, which upon reading the outside of the box artwork says, 65 episodes and 6 specials. So, it would appear that the this set is complete, with the exception of the 1 (15) minute special, "The Family of God", available only through Augsburg Fortress. I am hoping Gary will confirm all of this, too.

    I had previously purchased some of my Davey and Goliath sets at Christianbook.com at very reasonable prices. So, I checked their website, and they currently have the 12 volume set priced at 59.99, not including shipping. BTW, the outside of the box says this is the 50th anniversary edition and the studio is Bridgestone. So, it must be the same set.

    I am glad you posted about this as I had not heard about the 12 volume set. Thanks, Paul.

    Yes, the 12 volume set is complete (with the one exception noted by Chris). I highly recommend it to anyone interested in this classic series.


    Gary "my thanks to Paul as well for mentioning the Bridgestone set - I should have done that months ago when I received my set" O.
