David the Gnome (1985-1987)
The World of David the Gnome was based on the world famous children's books "The Gnomes" (Leven en werken van de kabouter) and "The Secret of the Gnomes" by Dutch authors Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen. David the Gnome, and his wife Lisa, were peace loving Gnomes who lived in a tree. They probably reminded more than a few children of their grandparents. David would travel around on the back of his trusty fox, Swift, who he would summon by whistling to help sick animals and gnomes and other mythical creatures with his medical expertise. David the Gnome invites the audience to follow him on his adventures as Doctor to the woodlands, traveling the world to help animals and fellow gnomes in crisis, as well as outsmarting those troublesome trolls Pit, Pat and Pot and their leader Holler.
