Davey producer dies

Ruth Clokey Goodell, 85, producer of the animated Davey and Goliath TV series, died Dec. 28.

“Of all the things that I have done in my life, I am most proud of Davey and Goliath (now property of the ELCA). We were really doing something to help the children of our country and of the world,” she said in a 1996 interview.

“This show had a message. It wasn’t just junk.” She was a graduate of Augustana College, Rock Island, Ill.
