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.

Great!
21 January 2002 | by powerforcewillemSee all my reviews

I watch this show when I was little on 'kindernet' its a great show because you also learn things about life and respect other creatures David always helping other people or animals in the forest when they need help.

They story is about the gnomes that live in a forest. They are friends with the animals and nature. Wherever they are in the forest, they are in danger of the mean trolls who are always trying to capture them.

The fox 'swift' is also fantastic, and also lisa david wife. And they live in a really warmly homey home I want to leave there! one of my favourite animation shows beside 'the simpsons' I give it a 8.7/10
