The Adventures of Noggin Clontith were two animated films based on Noggin Clontith, a walking talking gnome. This gnome had been turned into a meme in September 2018 (with origins from 2016) after a video of him saying "I'm gnot a gnelf, and I'm gnot a gnogglin! I'm a gnome, and you've just been gnomed!" was shared onto YouTube back in 2010. The video is very popular and is (possibly) the only reason people know this gnome exists. The two films are very obscure.
Noggin Clontith was created sometime in the early 2000s by Angela Winstanley. She had an entire website dedicated to the gnome. It was set up originally to raise awareness to water cleanliness at a local pond in Long Itchington, England. The original site, which now redirects to her new website, would greet you with Noggin saying:
"Oh, hello chum! I'm Noggin the gnome! Welcome to my website! Here you can find stories, songs and rhymes with animation! And you can send them to your chums, have yourself and a chum in a picture with me! Come on, LOGIN with NOGGIN!"
The site also has a page about the creators of the character, bios about other creatures like Grizbard and Denzel, and the ability to "send a Noggin", presumably something like the "You've been gnomed!" video. However, there is one page that is not accessible, that being the shop page.
On that shop page, there were two films were made based on Noggin, Volume 1 and Volume 2.
Not much surfaced of Volume 2 until November 2020, when the entire thing was uploaded to the internet. Winstanley's portfolio website depicts two screenshots of unidentifiable origin, and it's unknown if they're from Vol. 1 or 2. Due to the scarcity of the DVDs, it may be possible that there are no longer any copies of the DVD anymore.
However, the film does have a couple clips existing on Winstanley's YouTube channel. As for Volume 1, it can be purchased on Noggin's new website. The entirety of Volume 2 can now be downloaded via a Mega file.
