In the most in-depth television documentation of the lives of Little People, the series follows the Roloffs - an extraordinary family composed of both little and average-sized people.

Hi I'm Matt Roloff and this is my wife Amy.
We're little people.
When you're only four feet tall you feel like you're living in a world that wasn't meant for you. I can remember as a child spending my life in the hospital wanting to see the outside world.

The whole family is such a model to all families. The parents are so supportive of their four children. The children are compassionate and normal kids. Jeremy is so good to Zack. The grandparents are always there to give help when needed. It makes you feel good to watch them.
In addition to seeing a good family in action, we get the chance to view the lives of people that we would consider "different" and see them just like any one else. It is amazing how the father succeeded so well in life despite spending much of his childhood in a hospital and with the disadvantage of needing crutches. He and Amy make such a great couple and work so well together. They are inspiration to all of us and their live on the 34 acres is amazing.
