* JesusTaboo: Although the series was produced by the Lutheran Church, the characters rarely mentioned specific religious terms, to ensure the show had a broad appeal.

Added DiffLines:

* AsTheGoodBookSays: Being a Christian show, of course this trope appears in a few episodes, most notably "The Doghouse Dreamhouse" where Davey puts a Bible verse above the entrance of Goliath's Doghouse, and "To The Rescue" where they read Bible verses about teamwork, the episode's {{Aesop}}, during Chapel at Church Camp.

* KarmicTwistEnding: In one episode, Jimmy rushes past an injured girl in order to collect a "Good Neighbor" balloon at a festival. Davey stops to help the girl and as a result doesn't receive his balloon. The episode concludes with Jonathan boasting that he's a good neighbor since he has the balloon to prove it-- and to his dismay the balloon pops in his face.

''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episodes "Bart the Lover", "Simpsons Bible Stories", "HOMR" and "Ned 'n' Edna's Blend" all include mocking references to ''Davey and Goliath''. Creator/AdultSwim's ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' started as a direct parody (at least, that's what popular belief will tell you), but eventually blossomed into something more, at least until it was ScrewedByTheNetwork.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBully: The title character in "Bully Up a Tree" harasses Davey until he winds up, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin caught in a tree]]. He is disarmed and learns his lesson when Davey shows kindness and rescues him.


Added DiffLines:

* FantasticRacism: In one episode, Goliath dislikes another neighborhood dog because the other dog has spots. Eventually he learns the {{Aesop}} that color doesn't matter and what counts is the heart on the inside. (This parallels a storyline in which Davey confronts racial prejudice with his friend Scottie.)

Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellHero: In a later episode, Goliath pulls a child out of the way of an oncoming ambulance and, when the child points at his ear in explanation, Davey angrily retorts, "You bet you oughta shoot yourself, for being so dumb!" Once Davey learns that the boy is in fact deaf, he feels appropriately remorseful for his words. But still, geez, Davey.
