16 x 25 minute episodes
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 backyard 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 from next door (voiced by Jacqueline Clarke) and Chips the streetwise alley cat.
The gnomes adhere strictly to ‘The Code of the Gnomes’ in all things.
Michael Elphick appeared in a guest spot as a naughty gnome who invades the garden and steals Mr Fisher’s toadstool seat.
