I cried during the last episode
28 March 2004 | by (Fitchburg, MA) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show when i was little and lived in Portugal. It used to play here in the US on The Family Channel, when it used to be called that. It was definitely awesome! It should be remembered with classics like The Thundercats, The Smurfs, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony and Transformers. I certainly do! (The 80s rocked for cartoons!)

During the last episode, David and Lisa let Swift go free (what a great name for a fox!) and rode into the forest on the back of a deer and disappeared. My mom found me on the couch crying my little heart out. If I could find David the Gnome on DVD i would die of happiness. This is one those shows i want my children to watch someday.

I remember watching the Father Dowling mysteries when i was older because Tom Bosley (voice of David) starred in it and i liked hearing his voice. Secret Life of the Gnomes should be put into Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network. Anyone who watched it when they were kids would watch loyally i think. Well, i would. : P
