  • The show premiered on September 9, 1967 and the voice cast consisted of Mel Blanc, Tim Matheson & John Stephenson. In 1968, it was retitled to "Young Samson" in order to avoid confusion with the stop-motion Christian TV series "Davey & Goliath". The "Samson & Goliath" cartoons were paired with other General Mills-sponsored shows such as "Tennessee Tuxedo" and "Go Go Gophers" to form a full half-hour for their original network broadcasts. The show ended on August 31, 1968 after 13 episodes.

  • Samson & Goliath (also known as Young Samson) is an animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions for NBC, where it debuted on September 9, 1967. Primarily sponsored by General Mills, who controlled the distribution rights through its agency Dancer Fitzgerald Sample, Samson & Goliath was retitled Young Samson in April 1968 to avoid confusion with the stop-motion Christian television series Davey and Goliath. Twenty-six 12-minute episodes of the series were produced (six of which no longer exist); Samson & Goliath cartoons were paired with other General Mills-sponsored shows such as Tennessee Tuxedo and Go Go Gophers to form a full half-hour for their original network broadcasts.Young Samson was later shown in syndication with The Space Kidettes as The Space Kidettes and Young Samson, distributed by The Program Exchange. The series was the only Dancer Fitzgerald Sample-sponsored cartoon to be outsourced to Hanna-Barbera; the agency's in-house studio, Gamma Productions, had closed shortly before the series began. (It was also the only cartoon in the DFS portfolio not to be created by Jay Ward Productions or Total Television.) A young Tim Matheson did the voice of Samson, while Mel Blanc supplied the voice of Goliath. John Stephenson did the various character voices.
