Gnomes and Trolls


Junior, a teenage gnome, dreams of inventing gizmos and gadgets in his tree house laboratory. His father however, wants him to be sensible and help distribute food rations to the soon-to-be-hibernating animals of the forest. Evil troll brothers Face and slim try to thwart Junior’s efforts with a carefully plotted plan to steal the food form the gnome secret food chamber. Junior and his best friend Sneaky, a paranoid neurotic crow, embark on a heroic journey to retrieve the stolen food, and save the forest from certain disaster.

Dove Review

Here’s a charming story about growing up, family and friendship. Junior is a dreamer of new ways to do things but his father wants him to go with traditions. So they are not getting along very well. But when the trolls steal the food, Junior steps up and along with his friend finds a way to become the Gnome that his father wants him to be but also he finds a way to be himself.

The tale is cute and many lessons are taught in this story about growing up, being responsible and having courage plus change and learning new things are good. There are some scenes that may be scary for younger children. We award this DVD the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for 12 and older.
