Loved it as a kid .Still love it now.
12 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are a lot of things i used to watch as a kid that just haven't stood the test of time .Thankfully, Gnomes isn't one of them .

The story ,while basic , has a nice,warm,easy going vibe to it and the characters are likable , whether they be evil trolls and kind gnomes.

The character designs and backgrounds are incredibly detailed and add realism to the story book trappings.

What i liked in particular were the little bits where the story would take a break to show these beautifully painted pictures of the gnomes getting on with their day to day lives accompanied by narration explaining what the got up to .

Gnomes is a great cartoon thats easy on the eye and is as gently entertaining as it always was.
