Comb Gnomes


Dutch: Speldekrulletjes
German: Puschelzwergen
Italian: Pettignomi

Comb Gnomes are Duchess RavenWaves' henchmen, although they seem to have been recruted by Hairball. They are mischievous enough, but very lazy and can be counted upon to botch a job. Even so, they do have a magical attack that looks like lightning. These are usually blocked by the Pixietails, who use similar magic to create a shield.

The pink one is called Snags. He always talks in rhymes - which Hairball hates.

The blue one is called Tanglet. He can't talk, but only grumbles instead.

The purple one is rumored to actually be female, but "she" doesn't have a name.

Dutch and French

As in the comics the comb gnomes are indeed referred to as "Speldekrulletjes" it was not a consitent translation:
In the Dutch/French (bilangual) Panini album (stories and stickers) the comb gnomes are referred to as:

Comb gnomes: Twisttrollen, which translates into "quarrel trolls", quite fitting I believe.
Purple comb gnome: Grom (means growl)
Pink comb gnome: Sisser (means hisser)

Comb gnomes: Tiflutins
Purple comb gnome: Aspic
Pink comb gnome: Perfide
I'm not french and don't trust my french skills or online translations enough to translate names, so I'll leave that to someone French.

The blue one is called Dulla. He can imitate voices and does it to confuse lady and friends

The purple one is called Tanglet, they are rumored to actually be female. Tanglet cannot talk, but grumbles instead.

A New Name for the Purple Comb Gnome

How about if I call the purple one "Frizzy" for instance?

the gender of the comb gnomes...

Just to clarify the fact that Snags, the pink comb gnome IS the female... I found this video on youtube. If you watch and listen from 2.00 mins until 2.05 mins.. Lady Lovely Locks says to the pixie tails: "This comb gnome doesn't know when she's not welcome!" As Snags clings to her hair.

Just came across this site and love it!~ and wanted to help. LLL has and always will hold my fondest childhood memories Smiling I only wish I knew where my tapes were! I had at least 5!

Love and fandom always xox

Comb Gnomes names

The pink one is Snags.
The purple one is Tanglet (the supposed female).
The blue, apparently, is Dulla, the mysterious named Comb Gnome.

If you look in several episodes it's Snags that is a girl, the purple ones voice is to low for a female any way.

comb knome

who started that rumor anyway? Maybe they were thinking about the pink one. unless they are all girls. I think I remeber one episode raven waves was hinting that.

all comb knome names uncovered

in the episode "the rallye" hair ball directally points out each comb knome and called them by name
purple-tanglet (could be a girl)
blue- dulla

I have the episode up so every one now can see.


I have a few screenshots of the knomes from this episode and tanglet (the purple one) is looking rather girly.

In 03 Vanished, the pink gnome says, "Snags's off to count some sheep, then she'll get her beauty sleep."
