david the gnome...

All that talking about gnomes the other day got me thinking about a show from a while back. David the Gnome. Oh! So wonderful! So I did a quick search and found it to watch on YouTube. It's still as delightful as I remember:

And of course, then there's this, which the show was based on. Sigh. I love this sort of thing.

    I grew up near three Hutterite colonies in Montana. David the Gnome reminds me of how I thought they all lived. Sigh. Childhood. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hutterite

  2. Hi , great work. Pleased to meet you

  3. I remember this show. I think my oldest (now 21) watched it when she was small.

    Little cute gnomes.

  4. I watched that one!!! My brother, sister(s) and I watched it :)

  5. oh how sweet! i sometimes long for simpler, sweeter times, like when i was a child and it was easy to believe in fairies and elves and such. now i look forward to heaven, knowing that angels and Jesus really do exist. hoping for a life beyond ourselves makes this life a lot easier to bear on the hard days. thanks for sharing!

  6. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed this as much as I did!

    agravette: I so know what you mean. And how about this compared to the shows that are on now? I mean, I love Spongebob, but David the Gnome has such an innocence to it...

  7. i loved that show!!!!!

  8. Ah I loved this show too!! haha.

    Somethings in the air about Gnomes-
    I just saw these posted today in two other places-

    (Scroll down a bit on this one- I just saw the particular gnome ring on flickr but wanted to show you the whole post- http://papersparrow.typepad.com/papersparrow/2010/05/rings.html )

  9. I loved David the Gnome! We always did gnome kisses when the theme song came on. =)

  10. I love DtG I introduced my husband to it (he never had cable...) such a great show with a message. Did you know it was originally from Spain?

    Trolls and witches and fairy kings, birds that talk and fish that sing :-)
