You're just in time

for our story.

An epic detective adventure.

Sherlock Holmes,

the greatest...

Oh, let's do

"Gnomeo and Juliet" instead!

Yeah, we've already

done that.

Hey, hey, I know!

"Game of Gnomes!"

- Or "The Gnome Ranger."

- No, we're doing this.

Sherlock Holmes, the greatest

detective of all time.

And ours

will be the best ever.

Because our Sherlock

is a...

Let's do "The Twilight Gnome."

- No, no!

- Or "Spider-Man: Gnomecoming."

Or "Indiana Gnomes."

No! Because our Sherlock

is a garden gnome!

He's a garden gnome! Okay?

Oh, well, why didn't you

just say that?

Prepare for a tale

of suspense,

intrigue, and mystery.

Ooh, mystery.

Prepare for "Sherlock Gnomes."

The final clue, Watson.

The kidnapped gnomes

are in the museum.

And seconds away

from being smashed!

We shall see about that.

- Help!

- Help.

Show yourself, Moriarty!

Help! I'm stuck!

Oh, Sherlock.

How can I resist

a request like that?

Ta-da! Here I am! Your

favorite evil pie mascot.

Though I said "evil",

I do cry at sad films.

I'm very complex.

Don't try and get me.


Could I call you that?

You are just in time to see

these gnomes go extinct.

This stops now, Moriarty.

Oh, be honest, Sherlock.

You enjoy our little game

as much as I do.

This is no game.

I am the sworn protector

of London's garden gnomes.

If you are the sworn protector

of the city's gnomes,

then I am

their sworn destroyer!

And we will keep playing

this little game, Sherlock,

until I crush

every last gnome in London.

I'll stop you

until the day I die.

Oh, lightbulb moment.

What is it?

Yeah, today's that day.

Come, Sherlock.

Come dance with me.



Fudge buckets.


No thanks needed.

It is my sworn duty

to protect you.

No hugs.

- Oh, Watson.

- Yes, Sherlock?

Yours, I believe.

It's over, Watson.

With Moriarty gone,

London is once again safe

for all garden gnomes.

Our new home in London.

Oh, doesn't it look lovely?

It's a long way

from Stratford-upon-Avon.

But a lot

closer to the grandkids.

And we'll feel better once we

get our gnomes in the garden.


A brand new

adventure for us,

and our star-crossed lovers,

Gnomeo and Juliet.

Right. Let's go out

and buy an expensive coffee.

That's what people

do around here.

Oh, yes,

I've been practicing my order.

A skinny triple shot

soy latte, extra dry.

What a dump!

Where's the new garden?

This is the new garden, Fawn.

Naw, I'm going

back in the box.

Girls! Language.

I guess it's a fixer-upper?

Well, I think

that it's the most beautiful

garden in the world

because you're standing in it.

- Oof, that was super cheesy.

- Aw, seriously?

I practiced that line in the

car for about 10 minutes.

It was, like, awful.

Oh, I bet there's a pretty

good view up there.

I'll let you know

when I get there first.

Right, come here.


You win.

Come here.

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Think of all the adventures

we're gonna have.

Juliet, come down this

instant, before you fall.

When is he gonna realize

you're the toughest gnome

in the garden?

Now that was a good line.

She loves me.

She loves me not.

She loves me...

Oh, hi, Nanette.

Ooh, I think someone's

got a crush on someone.

Mmm. Maybe.

Oh, well, maybe they have

a crush on you back.

- Do you really think so?

- I don't know.

- I don't know who it is, do I?

- Oh.

- Gather 'round, everyone.

- Come on, everybody.


We have an announcement.

Lord Redbrick and I

are officially retiring.

We both think a new garden

is the perfect opportunity

to name new leaders.
