Fantastic cartooned gnomes made in a humoristic but educational way in fiction history.
29 November 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Swedish Christmas TV cult classic. The rights for this movie is not public domain, so there is no way to get a copy from SVT (Sveriges Television). The company that own the copyright have bankrupted and SVT cant provide anyone with a copy. Picture and sound is in VHS quality, if not taken from master tape (DD 2.0) or remastered of some kind.

Anyway, it is something that we all remember in Sweden. Really great cartooned gnomes.

It is something grown up people imitate in bar's and generally age 20-40 pretty much everyone knows this movie, and remember the great adventure it was to watch it.

Im lucky to own a remastered copy of this. I strongly recommend this to everyone that have kids, it contains the right way of humor to learn kids, and of course you grown up will have a good laugh to *wink*.
