The Gnome-Mobile is a typical Disney Film from the `60's - silly but lots of fun to watch. Walter Brennan is great as both DJ and one of the gnomes, while Karen Dotrice and Matthew Garber (listed in the credits as the kids from Mary Poppins) are okay as his grandchildren. It's fun spotting the character actors who seem to appear in just about every comedy made in the 60's including Richard Deacon, Frank Cady, Ellen Corby and Charles Lane. Ed Wynn appears all to briefly as a gnome.
The Gnome-Mobile is a good, fun family film.
Elizabeth and Rodney (Karen Dotrice and Matthew Garber) are spending the summer with their tycoon grandfather D.J. Mulrooney (Walter Brennan). Stopping off in the Redwood Forest for a picnic, Elizabeth meets Jasper (Tom Lowell) and Knobbie (Brennan once more), who claim to be the last surviving gnomes.
Promising to help them find more of their own kid, D.J. and the children bundle up Knobbie and Jasper, their destination the Virgin Forest many miles away. A stop at a motel blows their cover and the gnomes are abducted by freak show owner Horatio Quaxton (Sean McClory). The plot thickens when D.J. is thrown into a madhouse!
The story quickly rushes to it's eventful conclusion with Jasper finding the girl-gnome of his dreams (Cami Sebring).
Too bad the movie's in full-screen but never mind. Alas the Disney people are doing this with more and more frequency in their back-catalogue titles.
An entertaining tale with the MARY POPPINS kids! Based on the book by Upton Sinclair. With Ed Wynn, Maudie Prickett, Norman Grabowski, Ellen Corby, Susan Flannery and Richard Deacon.
While "The Gnome-Mobile" may not rate a "Vault Disney" or "Special Edition" release, the least Disney Home Video could do is release the film in its original format. Of course, this might present a little extra expense to the Company, and it's obvious that current management likes to keep profits up by cutting back any way possible. Walt's philosophy of "exceeding guest expectations" seems to have been forgotten. Hopefully, things will change soon.
Note to Disney Home Video: Treat your company's film heritage, and your customers, with some respect.

If you like Mary Poppins-esque movies, you'll love this one too. =) It just doesn't have as many sing-a-long songs as other similar movies from this era.Published 1 month ago by Kristin
I love this old movie and so do my kids. It is a Disney movie filled with singing that tells a great story and imparts a great opportunity for a teaching lesson to not listen to... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
