Trivia

Throughout his career, Walter Brennan approached roles in one of two ways: with teeth or without, as he had false teeth. In The Gnome-Mobile (1967), he had it both ways: teeth in for D.J. Mulrooney, and teeth out for Knobby the gnome. See more »

Goofs

After collecting the children from the airport D.J drives them to the woods, the view through the rear window shows them driving on the left side of the road, as it is in the USA this is incorrect. See more »

a funny hilarious movie
12 July 2001 | by (st.louis mo, usa) – See all my reviews

when this movie came out in 1967 i was only six. but when it was shown over the years on the disney channel and i got to see the movie for the first time i cried with laughter. the late but not forgotten walter brennan was as funny as funny could be. he was the perfect choice to do both roles. i take my hat off to walt disney for putting this movie together. this is a movie the whole family can enjoy. thank you...
