Look around you. There are many things to see, that some would say could never be. These things I know. It's true and I will tell you so. They are there to see, if you believe. Trolls and wizards and fairy kings, birds that talk and fish that sing. And if your heart is true, then you will find them, too. In every wish and dream and happy home, you will find a kingdom of the Gnomes.

I'll make this short and to-the-point about "David the Gnome," a children's animated TV series about the adventures of a gnome, David, and his wife Lisa, and their lives living in the forest many times being aided by the local forest animals and away from human beings, who are often viewed in a negative light.
"David the Gnome" is one of the earliest shows that I can remember from my childhood and still have many fond memories of; that is really all I have at the moment, because I have not seen this cartoon on television since the early 1990s. It was probably the first children's cartoon show that I can remember that also had a positive message that the young kids watching could also understand. (On a side note, I think one reason that I ultimately took a strong liking to it in the first place was because I happen to share the same name of the title character.) I regret that it is highly unfortunate that I don't see shows like "David the Gnome" on television much anymore, if it all, really. A few years ago, I was rather shocked to realize that the series is originally a Spanish production that was dubbed into English for North American audiences. Now usually, when foreign-language shows are dubbed into English, the results are usually sub-par; that doesn't happen here, because the voice cast was excellent, as was the dubbing and the vocal performances of the English-speaking cast. I truly love this show, and I'm not sure if a DVD release is available yet in the United States, where I live.
