Garden gnomes Mr Fisher (Mike Grady) – so named because he sat on a toadstool with a fishing rod – and Mr Wheeler (Tony Aitken) – named because he had a wheelbarrow – live in the back yard of a fish and chip shop.
The two gnomes discuss the antics of the ‘big ones’ (humans) and are joined in the garden by their friends Bleep the toy robot, Henrietta the Tortoise (voiced by Jacqueline Clarke) and Chips the cat.
The gnomes adhere strictly to ‘The Code of the Gnomes’ in all things.
