"This 'gnome' showed up in my Sims 3 game today. While my character put on a magic show, a 'gnome' magically appeared in his hand. The game says the gnome's name is Cranston Boonitz, but I say that's Harry Houdini ... and he showed up just in time for his real-life bday today! Ha!"
I'd say that's definitely Houdini!
Thanks for sharing the discovery Michelle.
