I couldn't articulate why I disliked Davey & Goliath when I was only 5 years old, but I think it was probably because it was annoyingly preachy.

Even the guy who made this series doesn't like the religious right in the U.S.

quote:
"The church wanted [the original series] to be about love and tolerance, and that's not the face of Christianity in America," Clokey said of his motivation.
"In the '60s and '70s, Christianity was more of a liberal faction. There are still millions of liberal Christians who go to church, but they are not represented on TV anymore."

Was there a short parody of D & G on a Simpsons episode, with the Flanders watching, that had Davey making a pipe bomb to blow up Planned Parenthood?

There are several D&G parodies on The Simpsons, and yes, that is one of them.
