The Littles

The Littles was produced between 1983 and 1985 where it ran for three seasons of 29 episodes. It follows the adventures of Henry Bigg, a 13-year-old blonde boy who is one of the very few humans who knows about the existence of the Littles. He discovered them one day when the fell into his suitcase by accident. They live in his house and are his best friends, when there is some bigger work to be done he’s always there for the others. Together with his small turtle Slick he protects his friends of becoming discovered or caught by the evil, doctor Hunter.

The show is based on the characters from The Littles, a series of children’s novels by American author John Peterson, the first of which was published in 1967. The series was produced for the American broadcast network ABC by a French/American/Canadian animation studio, DIC Entertainment, and as standard practice for TV cartoons of the period, the animation production was outsourced overseas to the Japanese studio TMS Entertainment. It was post-produced by a Canadian Animation studio, Animation City Editorial Services.

In the television series, the Little’s family tree is mostly clear. Frank and Helen are the parents of Tom and Lucy, Grandpa is the father of Helen, and Dinky is a cousin (presumed first cousin) of Tom and Lucy. In the books, the family tree is never explicitly identified. Occasional references to relationships indicate a family tree, but the references are conflicting. The Littles that often appear are Tom, Lucy, Dinky and Grandpa.
