1973 - School Who Needs It - In 1973, the UNDA-USA, the Catholic fraternal association for broadcasters and allied communicators, the successor organization to the Catholic Broadcasters Association of America (UNDA is Latin for "Wave"), awarded the "School--Who Needs It?" episode their Gabriel Award. The judges commented, "For many years the Lutheran Church in America has produced the Davey and Goliath series. Noted for technical excellence and entertaining, motivating human situations for a young audience, it provides an outstanding illustration of positive values. Nationally syndicated, it is not only aired on commercial stations, but used by many school districts as a springboard for teaching social values."

1966 - Christmas Lost and Found - In 1966, the Catholic Broadcasters Association of America awarded a Citation of Merit to the "Christmas Lost and Found" episode, stating "This is a delightful children's program which entertains as it teaches the true spirit of Christmas. It is simple yet shows great respect for the intelligence of children." The Citations were presented at the Gabriel Awards Dinner on May 10. Though the press release doesn't say it directly, a later reference indicates that the Citation of Merit and a "Gabriel" were one and the same.
