In all of the aardman films gnomes have appeared it a close shave you saw that gnome holding a go sign, a gnome fell from a patch of vegetables and they had cameos in the wrong trouser and a matter of loaf and death. In Shaun the sheep they have cameos constantly. And in chicken run ginger had a gnome andn there are other gnomes in the film. Are garden gnomes a big thing in the uk? Does nick park have gnomes that inspired him to put gnomes in the films?

Also there is one gnome in chicken run at the beginning and the dog crunches it up while growling really loudly like this. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw that too. But in the aardman films they get broke a lot. Like in the show the farmers niece broke and and the farmers girlfriend ran over one

haha, I never realised!
But, Gnomes are awesome!!

I know! I did not realise it either until i saw them have cameos in every film. I guess gnomes are really cute to have in your yard. But i don't have any.

They aren't really a big thing here, it's not asthough everybody has one but they are very well known and Wallace is exactly the kind of person who would collect garden gnomes. They are also quite a iconic british thing so that fits in with the whole 50's/60's post-war Britain feel of the Wallace and Gromit world.

i agree as most british people don't hav a garden gnome

Gnomes tend to be linked to people who are considered a little bit eccentic. At least that's how I look at them. Not everyone has gnomes in their gardens but there is something fascinating about them. Cheery little people to help look after your garden.
