Merry Christmas from Knotty Pine

Ranger Bill, Stumpy, Gray Wolf and Henry wish everyone a warm and joyous Christmas! May joy and peace fill each of your lives as we celebrate the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. As we open and share gifts this day, may the gift salvation in Christ be first in your hearts!

A question from Vern

Vern emailed us with this question:
"Did you ever have anything to do with Davey and Goliath since it's very similar to Ranger Bill. I watch Davey and Goliath on TV although this is the kind of show which could have easily been on the radio. I wrote the last comment in June July, 2011. I love listening to Ranger Bill and I wish it was on my local Christian Station so I wouldn't have to use my limited time on the internet. Merry Christmas! "

Reply from Ranger Dave:
No, Vern, I'm sorry but Davey and Goliath and Ranger Bill have never been connected in any way that I am aware of. Davey and Goliath was produced in the 1960's by the Evengelical Lutheran Church in America. Ranger Bill was written and recorded in the 1950's and early 1960's at radio station WMBI in Chicago as part of Moody Bible Institute.
I understand that some new Davey and Goliath videos are being produced for the 50th anniversary of the show.

Jessie wrote to share his Ranger Bill favorites:

"My favorite Characters are Bill, Stumpy, Greywolf and Henry. If I had to narrow it down, I'd say that Bill and Stumpy are the must have characters.
My favorite stories are the Christmas episodes. This weeks is probably my Favorite, followed by the one where Jimmy gets to walk again. Another favorite is Falling Giants. I remember that one because it is the first one I can remember hearing."
