Frodo knows Gandalf because Gandalf was like Bilbo (Frodo's grand-uncle) guardian on Bilbo's adventures. Now, Frodo knows Gandalf through Bilbo.

Why does Frodo so readily agree with Gandalf's advice that he go to Rivendell?

I think it's because he know's his Uncle Bilbo is there. ---- Frodo doesn't know where Bilbo is. But if Gandalf tells him he has to take the One Ring to Rivendell where it would be save, before he is found in the Shire, what else should he do?Because he knows if he stays in the Shire the Ringwraiths will easily find him and kill him.

How is the effect scale created when Frodo and Gandalf are riding in the wagon in the movie lord of the rings?

Frodo is actually sitting a ways back in the cart from Gandalf, but because the seats they are on are not actually shown and compared, and the side of the cart is the same, the audience gets the effect that Frodo is just smaller, and not actually sitting back.

Who is Frodo's guardian?

Bilbo Baggins.Another opinion:Although Bilbo Baggins was Frodo's cousin (he is often assumed to be his uncle, but they are in fact cousins), and Bilbo named Frodo as his heir, I don't believe Bilbo was actually Frodo's guardian during the whole of Lord of the Rings. I think his actual guardian was Gandalf the Grey (later Gandalf the White) the wizard that had been friends with him since he was a child. While Bilbo spent his years in Rivendell writing a book, Gandalf was off helping Frodo to save the world, and doing the best he could to protect the young hobbit on his dangerous journey.A 3rd opinion:In the book, Bilbo was 78 years older than Frodo, and he adopted Frodo (age 12) when both of his parents died in a boating accident. Gandalf was an extremely infrequent visitor to the Shire. Gandalf and Frodo were together on the Quest for Mordor for a grand total of three months, and two of those months were spent at Rivendell with Bilbo. I vote for Bilbo as Frodo's guardian.
