Little Houses for Little People is the fifth episode of David the Gnome. It first aired 1 April 1985 and first aired in the US 30 May 1987.
David explains how gnomes build their houses with help from many other gnomes and animals. The entrance of the house is under a tree, with an underground tunnel leading to another tree. A rabbit gives David and Lisa a message about a deer with a broken leg. They both go to help the deer, who had fallen on a sharp rock, and part of it was embedded in her leg. David removes the piece of rock and puts a splint made of branches on her leg. Later that night, David also has to remove pine cones from the throat of another deer.
