Literary Toons: David & Goliath (Mel-O-Toons, 1960)

Having seen Mel-O-Toons on WSBK back in the 70's, I didn't see this next offering.

Up now is an adaptation of the classic Bible story of David & Goliath, compressed into just under six minutes. While the narrator is not credited, it does sound a bit like Edward Everett Horton, the narrator of Jay Ward's Fractured Fairy Tales on Rocky & His Friends.

Today, an adaptation of this same story would be extended to a more appropriate length, perhaps as a DTV.

Rating: B+. Blame it on the artwork.

It's a shame such righteous material doesn't air on TV anymore. Or the 45RPM records as they were originally released.

Hmm. You'd think they'd release those old records on CD for a new generation, but noooooo!
