Movie Friday: The Gnome Mobile

This is one of those Disney Classics that a lot of people haven't heard of.  When I was little, and cable television was still relatively new (remember those cable boxes with about 30 different buttons, one for each channel?  You pushed the button for the channel you wanted, requiring you to get out of your chair) we had the Disney Channel.  At that time, they showed a lot of their old movies from the 1960s, and this was one of my favorites.  It seemed like they showed it a lot, and I always had to watch it when it was on.  I think the allure was the great old car, the "Gnome Mobile."

It features the stock Disney actors and actresses from the period.  Seems like the same people were in almost every Disney movie (or maybe that's just me).  Most notably, at least to me, is the double role of Walter Brennan.

Anyway, here is a Wikipedia article on the movie, if you're interested.

Also, here is a link to You Tube, it seems that the whole movie has been uploaded on there.  We'll see how long it stays up before You Tube removes it.

Have a great Friday!


  1. Our Public Library has a vhs copy of the this! and It will also be the 2nd feature tonight at the Drive -In! Infact, im pretty sure as the season kicks off what I show out there will provably your friday night pick (no pressure buddy!) haha

  2. I think the two kids in this were also in Mary Poppins. I always watched the Disney Sunday night movie but I don't remember this one.
