Storyline

David is a wise and friendly gnome doctor that can cure both physical and psychological injuries. With his beloved wife, Lisa, and his fox, Swift, he lives in the forest hidden from the human eyes, living to help to the most defenseless. His fame and his wisdom as doctor make that the gnomes of entire world calling him to solve their problems. With Swift, David travels helping everyone. 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. As the trolls also have issues with the humans, David must also help them too. In this way, David must be constantly alert to avoid being captured by trolls and defeat them before they cause an irreparable damage. Written by Chockys

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.

I cried during the last episode
28 March 2004 | by ParrotTalkBackSee 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
