Upvoted is a publication based around happenings on Reddit. Three days ago they featured an article about Gnoms after it recently enjoyed another spike of popularity (and close to 100,000 new views).
Before you rush out to get matching Cintiq tablets, check out the pilot that Adelaide-based animator Brendan Deboy—who goes by NotBrenAgain on Reddit—created in 2014 with his daughter Avalie, who was just one year old at the time:
The pilot features a quartet of drum- and synth-voiced worms who start a dance party near an innocent gnome named “Red” and a slumbering bear (named “Bear”). When the furry beast inevitably wakes up, the party worms rescue the young gnome with their infectious beats.
On Sunday night, this promising first episode—and a five-minute sequel from 2015—caught the attention of Reddit’s Videos community—and prompted many redditors to ask Deboy when the (intentionally misspelled) series Gnoms would be a full-fledged show.
