Gordon the Garden Gnome

Gordon the Garden Gnome

A children’s cartoon series first shown on CBeebies in 2005. Most of the episodes start with Gordon looking at his magic calendar which reminds him to do something or tells him of something that is going on and he and his friends (Andrew the worm, Daphne the squirrel, Jerome, Percy and Rosie (who are also gnomes), The Chief Gnome and his wife Gladioli as well as two irritating slugs called Lez and Dez get into some sort of scrape and generally ends up with everyone (with the possible exceptions of Lez and Dez) being ‘very, very happy’.

The show was intended to get children interested in gardening and used the voice of Alan Titchmarsh for the voice of Gordon. The production team worked with Kew Gardens to check important plant facts and Kew Gardens does show up several times in the series, not least as the home of the gnome academy and home of The Chief Gnome.

There are 52 episodes (all of which I manged to find on YouTube although I am not sure they are meant to be there).
