Num episodes[edit]

I changed the number of episodes because my freind bought the series and it was 32 episodes long. However I'm not sure if all of them were aired. Feel free to change it if you know. --The_stuart 22:36, 26 Sep 2004 (UTC)

I thought it was 26... Crucible1001

Mythology[edit]

I think a mentioning of the cartoon being influenced by Scandinavian mythology would be appropriate... JanderVK

IIRC Redcaps, what David and his family appear to be, were a particulary visious bunch in the folklore. So if someone wants to put in a folklore origins section, that might want to be investigated.

CBS?[edit]

In some discussions of the show, I have heard people recall that it was shown very early in the morning on CBS stations. Was this ever a CBS program, or was the station picking up a syndicated show?

26 or 32?[edit]

The article is currently claiming both, no doubt following the disagreement on this talk page - the first paragraph says 32, the box says 26. Any sources on this? -- Mithent 23:28, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

Spanish speakers needed to help finish translation[edit]

I have added much more to this article from the Spanish wikipedia article of "The world of David the Gnome". Unfortunatly I don't know much spanish, and I mainly translated what I could with the help of an online translator. Alot more needs to be translated. Acidburn24m 18:29, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:DavidtheGnome.jpg[edit]

Image:DavidtheGnome.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Edit war[edit]

I promise you, that in the last few minutes, the country of origin has changed from England to Spain, and Spain to England. The country of origin is Spain, I don't know how someone would get the idea of England. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.173.195.17 (talk) 18:38, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

English title[edit]

IMDb lists this title as David the Gnome, not The World of David the Gnome[1]. Move page? --Bensin (talk) 19:29, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

No. The opening credits of the programme detail it as The World of David the Gnome. Leave it. Thor Malmjursson (talk) 12:06, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

reception; series ending[edit]

Saying how the series ends has absolutely nothing to do with reception, which is a section that should be describing how the public and various critics recieved the show when it was initially released. It also spoils the ending for anyone who may remember this show from way back, decides to look it up (and maybe watch it, again), and is unlucky enough to glimpse the one liner on how the series ends. This is in no way "helpful". Also, stating that turning into a tree is a metaphor for death, without citing a source, is a personal idea, and is original research.

Actually, the entire "reception" section has nothing to do with the actual reception of the show by the public/critics. Its just a bunch of miscellaneous facts, and more personal ideas with no citations.

Still though, Im concerned only about this line. Im removing the line, again. If someone is going to put it back, then put it under a more apt section heading, cite a source for the metaphor, and put a spoiler warning below the section heading. Its only fair to those who dont want the end ruined for them.

Furthermore, the ending is described on the list of episodes page, which is where it belongs anyway. Having it posted here in an unrelated header just clutters the article.
