Any other David the Gnome fans here?
« on: October 14, 2017, 12:26:40 PM »
Hi,

Are there any other David the Gnome fans out there? I had vague memories of a few scenes of the episodes before getting the DVD set last year.  This is my second time watching the whole series all the way through and I really enjoy the series.  :)

I'm not a fan (as in, I know every episode), but I do remember watching it when I was little. I loved it, it was such a beautiful series. :D

I think it's a great series also, and it seems really timeless.  :)

I remember it, I actually cried when the last episode aired here in the U.K (you know when they died).  :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Who wants to changed this sig into ponies?

That was a sad way to end the series but it was also very well done. My mom says that episode aired maybe one time in the US on Nick Jr. She remembered the part with David and Lisa  saying goodbye to Swift.

Yeah, that episode was very uncharacteristically sad for a show targeting preschoolers.

I agree. I was a little shocked when I found out about the ending last year. I felt just like Swift does at the end when he realizes he'll never see David or Lisa again. I'm tearing up just thinking about it.

I remember it being on a long defunct channel named "The Children's Channel" in the UK, but I don't remember watching it.  However, I had the theme song recorded as part of a promo for it (I had recorded shows from that channel), so I still have a nostalgic attachment to the theme song, despite not watching the show (assuming I didn't).
I will confess to being a brony, but I assure you that the things you may not like about them do not apply to me, I mostly keep the fandom name due to nostaligia, but I do genuinely love MLP as a whole, not just FIM, and not just the popularity of FIM - I genuinely love the show (and all the others)

I loved this show when I was a kid! I've wanted to watch it again, but haven't been able to find it anywhere.  :(

Amazon had the DVD set for sale last year but when I checked a couple of months ago the only copies for sale were from private seller and they wanted $200 per set.  I am disappointed that my set that has only been played through once the last disc is stopping in the middle of the episodes and is very scratched. :( The other discs play fine so I'm not sure why the last disc is like that.

YouTube has some David the Gnome episodes.

That brings back fund memories. I still remember the episode where he talked about other mystical creatures he had met or heard about. I always found that one particularly amusing.
