He creates peace between the gnomes, he heals injured animals and fights against the trolls - horrible and stupid creatures that enjoy causing harm to animals, and they like to hunt gnomes to cause them pain and suffering.

Quotes

Narrator: 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.

This was an awesome show back before there was Blues Clues
14 August 2002 | by BlazeFoxSee all my reviews

David The Gnome / Secret World Of The Gnomes was an awesome show. I watched this stuff even when I was older. I was born in 81. I grew up on stuff like Knight Rider and ThunderCats and HeMan. But on snow days or sick days away from school I would sit around and watch Nick Junior. I was probably around 13 but so what. I loved this type of stuff. Maya The Bee, The Little Bits, The Noozles (Dot and The Koala), The Adventures of the Little Koala, Hello Kitty, Pinwheel, and other stuff Nick Junior's Animated Fairy Tales ( Happily Ever After) I can barely remember but it brings back memories. But now everything is all working on comercialization and merchandising. Blues Clues, Dora The Explorer. And then you're kid wants the merchandise.. Yeesh. I miss those good ole days of Nick...
