Do you all remember the show? Well I was browsing the linked variations and episode clips when I came across one that purported to show what happens when gnomes die. Though because it's a show for small children or for those who are small children at heart they didn't use the actual word verb to die. I'll get to that in a moment though.
What doesn't happen when gnomes die is they don't become little statues sieg heiling from amongst the pansies and monkey grass, although Andrew Sullivan did find a photo for his 'Face of the day' of a gnome who appears to be doing precisely just that.

Weird ain't it? Any who, when gnomes die -- apparently they become trees. Yeah who would have thought right? Little yard gnomes transmorph through the power the page flip into apple trees while their companion foxes look on in disbelief howling in their grief.
After finding out just what happens to gnomes, truly a mixed emotional experience, I found myself just a little blue and in need of some cheering up. How would David and Lisa cheer themselves up I thought? And then quickly I realized that's just crazy why am I trying to think like 2-d drawings on a piece of celluloid? So I quickly clicked another link and found this gem of a cover for the Gnome series.
Who would have ever thought they were watching David the Gnome in Karachi in the late 80's early 90's?
