It was a sci-fi/fantasy movie probably from the 90's, and I believe it was a stop motion film.

Little people from outer space are trying to find way back home guided by this small computer cube.

At the end of the film they manage to drive a truck using team work and ropes and get to a space ship or something like that.

The title is probably the name of their kind.

The Nome Trilogy by Terry Pratchett was made into a TV series, at least the first book, Truckers.

And now, to find it...

It more recent years I've seen it referred to as the Bromeliad trilogy. Tony Robinson's readings of it are great. – StuperUser Jun 25 '14 at 10:33
