Storyline

Animated series about a 13-year-old boy named Henry Bigg who goes on vacation and finds mouse-like creatures in his suitcase called Littles. There's a whole family of Littles. William and Lucy Little help raise their three children, 21-year-old Dinky, 13-year-old Tom and 10-year-old Lucy. Dinky is the clumsy and goofy voiced pilot who is out of school and is 21 years old and is usually seen helping Grandpa Little out by doing a bunch of stuff while Mr. and Mrs. Little work during the day. Tom is the excited one and Lucy is the youngest and smallest and always ready to do something. In the second season, they adopted a girl named Ashley, who had short hair and wanted excitement always happen with The Littles. Written by Brett J. Ferino <Ferinojf@aol.com>

An 80s cartoon classic loosely based on The Borrowers!
10 January 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is DIC's first animated show (with the second being Inspector Gadget) and it first premiered in September of 1983 on ABC.

This series focuses on one particular family of Littles - Grandpa, Mom and Dad, Dinky, and the two youngest: Tom and Lucy. In their quest to become productive adults, the Littles and their 12-year old huge 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. Each episode of the Littles focuses on one such issue, presenting it in explicit, concrete terms. And young, attractive characters with whom children can identify carry out these actions, they serve as excellent role models for young viewers. Younger and older children, boys and girls, loners and social butterflies...all can find a character with whom to identify and from whom to learn. And last but far from least, the character of Grandpa, a wise, experienced, older Little who clearly loves and cares for the Little kids, functions as the kind of non-threatening, non-didactic teacher to whom children respond. He frequently articulates the lesson inherent in the action as he interacts with and advises the Little children. He is the best kind of teacher.

The exciting adventures of the Littles and the suspense generated by their frequent narrow escapes from Dr Hunter are designed to capture and hold young viewers' attention. The explicitness with which each lesson is articulated and role models with whom children can identify are designed to ensure that children note and understand the embedded pro-social content as they derive delight from the action.

I definely remember watching this when it was on The Family Channel (I was 4 at the time)and later on Toon Disney. it was very funny and cute especially when Dinky was doing his own stunt show until it when out of control and went up to flames. Now that this show is currenly in syndication and on DVD, you'll be able to catch all the fun. Whenever you are big or little, it always a treat!

From DIC Animation City, in association with ABC Productions (American Broadcasting Company).

Joe's Rating: 4 stars.
