Western Animation: Davey and Goliath
The sight of a kid who looks like Orel having a happy family? Mind boggling.
Art Clokey, the creator of Gumby, produced this syndicated Religious Edutainment series in the early 1960s for one of the predecessors of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It centered on a young boy named Davey Hansen and his talking dog, Goliath. When Goliath speaks, only Davey can hear him. More information:

The Simpsons episodes "Bart the Lover", "Simpsons Bible Stories", "HOMR" and "Ned 'n' Edna's Blend" all include mocking references to Davey and Goliath. [adult swim]'s Moral Orel started as a direct parody (minus the dog and plus some Black Comedy), but eventually blossomed into something more, at least until it was Screwed by the Network.
