With TLC totally dropping the ball with all of the
midget Little Person programming on television these days, it’s a relief that someone finally stepped up to see the one show that would dwarf all the LP programming on the tube to date: midget wrestling.
This half-hour reality series chronicles the often-absurd yet astonishing adventures of one of the most extraordinary performance wrestling groups in the country who will do just about anything inside and outside of the ring. A combination of “Jackass” and “Little People, Big World,” the series will be seen through the eyes of these extreme little people.
The “Half Pint Brawlers” consist of Puppet, the leader and founder of the group; Bobby, the ladies man; Kato, Bobby’s brother and veteran wrestler; Mad Mexx, the Immigration Sensation and hard core wrestler; Turtle, the rookie of the group paying his dues to become a Brawler; Teo, the smallest and most athletic member; and Spyder, the regular-size announcer for the group. –Spike TV (press release)
