Small Problem, A

IN THE near-ish future everyone under five foot high is hunted down, for satirical comedy purposes. CHRISTOPHER “MIKE” RYAN led the rag-tag fugitive bunch of short geezers with much pratfalling at the giants’ expense. Titular problem became somewhat larger, however, when viewers missed the point, got upset and deluged OPEN AIR with complaints, ensuring the series never came back.

    This sounds like an episode The Goodies did about discrimination against short people, which was probably fine for 30 minutes but struggled to stretch for a full series.

    Divided We Stand managed to do the same thing around the same time, taking the premise of the Steptoe & Son episode of the same name, & managing to get a few series of Bert & Masie’s partitioned domestic strife.
