SHERLOCK GNOMES is an animated adventure in which a pair of garden gnomes join forces with a detective to find their kidnapped friends.

Threat

The gnomes face threats from a swarm of rats, a pair of stone gargoyles and an army of cat figurines. A villain traps characters beneath a drawbridge that is slowly coming down. These scarier moments are brief and contain comic interludes.

Violence

Characters fight with sticks, rolling pins and a fantastical rocket launcher, but without sustaining injury.

Theme

There is very mild rude humour.
