Storyline

Under the floorboards of an old department store live the gnomes, tiny people for whom things like Outside and Sun and Rain are just daft old legends. Then a group of new gnomes arrive from the Outside that nobody believes in, bringing with them The Thing. The Thing eats electricity. It listens to electricity, too. And right now the electricity is telling it that the store is about to be closed down... Written by Paul Andinach <pandinac@ucc.gu.uwa.edu.au>

Magical stuff!
8 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was 16 or 17 years old when this was first shown on telly. I remember at the time thinking, "Grow up man, you shouldn't be watching kids stuff!" But this is much much more than just 'kids stuff' this is pure magic, the sort of telly rarely (if ever!?) seen nowadays.

Wonderful attention to detail, great voice cast, outstanding stop motion animation, intensely detailed and beautifully made costumes and sets, and to top it off, a great story set in a fantastically dark and archaic little world within a (human) world. This has drama, humour, horror, tension, action and thrills. Everything a kid (or big kid!) could possibly want.

I'm 31 now and still think this is pure class. As much as I enjoy Wallace And Grommit and the like, this tops the lot! Criminally forgotten, and to add insult to injury this has NEVER been made available on DVD!? :(

Scandalous I tell you!

If you see it, buy it! Even if you have to buy a VHS recorder to view it. It really is that good ;)
