Editorial Reviews

Rarely seen by human eyes, little people with tails and pointed ears live in the walls of houses and the tiny spaces of the world. These nearly human creatures are known as "The Littles" and they live much as we do, in tightly-knit loving families with the same cares, worries, and joys that we share. But being so tiny in so large a world brings many adventures and dangers to the Littles, for something as sweet and cuddly as a household cat is a real menace to them. Henry Bigg, a 12-year-old boy who has discovered the existence of the Littles, joins them in many of their adventures as the Littles live, unseen by everyone but Henry, in his home. They also travel to many far off places of the world meeting other Littles and having even more adventures.

This series focuses on one particular family, the Littles - Grandpa, Mom (Helen) and Dad (Frank), Dinky, and the two youngest children: Tom and Lucy. In their quest to become productive adults, the Littles and their full sized human friend Henry face the same kinds of problems that young children face every day - issues of friendship, jealousy, honesty, prejudice, consideration for others, kindness, responsibility, risk-taking ... and more.

My grandson will watch and enjoy this for hours at a time.

Here come the Littles " the other movie included here is like a prequel to the animated series which you had to buy on a separate dvd release to have previously.

In the endless mucking about through hundreds of cutesy kids shows a few do come out on top as being innovative, educational, and above all entertaining. The Littles was one of those kinds of shows. While the episodes had a moral to them that moral tends to be shown in a more practical way than your standard "always brush your teeth after each meal... and knowing is half the battle" kind of prachy message. In other words it entertains. As a youngin' myself I found this show wasn't condescending to little kids while at the same time engaging them.

The Littles is based on a widely popular book series and is about a family of little people (very, very little people... think Tom Thumb little) going about their daily adventures in a world of giants (that would mean us regular folk). The animation is surprisingly good with some nice art and nice frame rate compared to other Saturday morning cartoons. Considering this is a show for kids between around 8 and 13 it does get goofy and you do get those silly sound effects every time somebody (or rather Dinky) falls over and the like. Part of the fun is seeing how they use our common small household items as creative inventions for their own environment. That includes anything from basic tools and furniture to airplanes and other vehicles. The cast is a good blend of characters and include:

Tom Little - A 13 yr old with an adventurous streak to him.

Lucy Little - The ten year old sister to Tom who tends to be the sensible one.

Dinky Little - A 21 year old little who pilots the airplane and tends to be the clumsy Gilligan of the group.

Grandpa Little - The brave and somewhat wise one of the bunch that, with the help of Dinky, keeps the kids from getting in over their heads.

Now that the previous set is out of print this is your chance to once again get " The Littles " original series from D.I.C. now known as Cookie Jar Ent. You get all 29 episodes and also 2 bonus movies. The previous set had only one movie " Liberty and the Littles " which was part of the ABC Weekend Specials series. " Here come the Littles " the other movie included here is like a prequel to the animated series which you had to buy on a separate dvd release to have previously. Getting the whole series and two movies for this price is bang for the buck!

This is a quality cartoon; funny, adventurous, educational and all around fun for all ages. If you need to know more the previous set reviews go into great detail so it's no need to repeat it again here. Mill Creek is a budget company thus the price for this set is very nice! Mill Creek has done mostly a good job with all their other animated releases and this one should is no different. For the price you are getting a great collection which 80s fans and kids today can enjoy!

I have to say if you are a collector the previous set was much better for extras as this set only comes with a trailer for another Mill Creek release. But you could consider the addition of the " Here come the Littles " movie as an extra since the last box set did not have it. The other set is out of print, it's still for sale on Amazon through sellers so my point was to say you probably couldn't find the original set in stores any longer. The last set had 5 single discs, this set has 3 discs so there is tighter compression going on here but the picture is still quite nice for the age of the show. If you're a casual fan of the show or someone who doesn't want to spend the extra to buy the original release I still think this a good purchase.

The Littles Compete series was a ABC series based on the children books. Some of the episodes include the original ABC commercial bumpers and all the episodes include LITTLE IDEAS FOR BIG PEOPLE where kids are show how to make the type of stuff The Littles characters use in that episode. The DVDs are separate containers instead the box so one doesn't have to worry much about the disks getting loose or scratched during shipping like sometimes happen with the fold out series boxes. Dinky Little is the one who personality changes most between books and show as he is used for comic relief in the TV series with the way he always messes up and get in trouble. The set also include all three versions of the opening theme.

I adored this cartoon as a child and look forward to watching it again as an adult. Call me crazy, but certain things in life will always bring a smile to my face regardless of time passed.

I was a child of the 80s, the era of wonderful children's programming (nothing like the drivel passing off as children's entertainment these days, well, except for some quality PBS shows). Anyway, when I found this series available on DVD, I quickly ordered a set as I enjoyed it as a child and wanted to share it with my 5-year-old. "The Littles" centers around 10 inches tall siblings Tom and Lucy, cousin Dinky, Grandpa Little and parents, Frank and Helen. Their human friend is 12-year-old Henry Bigg and his pet turtle, Slick. There's also a villain in the form of Dr. Hunter. For the most part, the show is well-written, with positive messages imbued in each episode.

Here's a breakdown of the episodes:
Season One
Beware of Hunter!
Lost City of the Littles
The Big Scare
Lights, Camera, Littles!
The Spirits of the Night
The Little Winner
A Big Cure for a Little Illness
The Rats Are Coming, The Rats Are Coming
The Little Fairy Tale
Prescription for Disaster
The Little Scouts
A Little Gold, A Lot of Trouble
Dinky's Doomsday Pizza

Season Two
Looking For Grandma Little
Every Little Vote Counts
The Forest Littles
The Littles' Halloween
The Little Babysitters
A Little Rock and Roll
The Little Amazon Queen
The Little Girl Who Could

Season Three
Deadly Jewels
The Wrong Stuff
When Irish Eyes Are Smiling
Ben Dinky
For the Birds
The Twins
Tut the Second
Just a Little Drunk

Season Three marks a departure in the Littles' storyline as they embark on international adventures - to India, outer space(!), Ireland, Rome, and Egypt.
