5 Stars Out Of 5
This is a video for everybody to watch!
January 3, 2012
All of the videos in this volume are great and the lessons learned from these can apply to real life. Goliath really enhances the episodes. His expressions and how he is portrayed are funny. This is a video everybody should watch. It does not matter the age, it applies to everybody.
But the one that stands out, "The Polka Dot Tie", is one that everybody should watch and look at very closely. Davey and his friend Sam are building a new clubhouse with Sally for their new club, "The Friendship Club". Davey's father asks about having the new kid, Nathaniel join their club. Nathaniel is a new kid and is rejected by "everybody".
Nathaniel and his dog Spot stops by Davey's house and asks to join his club. The two boys said "No". Then, he is challenged by Davey and Sam to a baseball contest of some kind. Then, Nathaniel hits the ball pitched by Davey over the fence and it lands on top of the newly built clubhouse. Goliath jumps on top of the clubhouse to retrieve the ball and ruins it. They tell Nathaniel to go away, even though it was not his fault.
The best scene in the video is this next scene. The next scene shows Spot talking to Nathaniel. It is a very touching and sad scene. Spot asks Nathaniel, "Doesn't anybody love us?" Nathaniel answers, "God does." Spot asks, "Then why don't people?" It shows both Nathaniel and Spot crying. I can relate to both having been in this position. It teaches us that people should reach out more to others regardless of who they are and what they look like. (The story does have a happy ending.)
