Spike TV Letting 'Scrappers' and 'Half Pint Brawlers' Loose on the Network

Half Pint BrawlersLittle people are the next big thing on television, apparently. 'Little People, Big World' has been recently joined by 'The Little Couple,' 'Little Chocolatiers' and 'Pit Boss.' Now, Spike TV is getting in on the action, quite literally, by greenlighting a six-episode series about a troupe of traveling little person wrestlers.

The network has ordered ten episodes of 'Scrappers,' which follows a group of scrap-metal workers as they root around in Brooklyn looking for the best crap. So tell me, how does a show about people scrapping metal score more episodes than a series about the Half Pint Brawlers, a group of little people wrestlers led by Puppet "The Psycho Dwarf."

The name alone is worth a few episodes, and their act has been together for a decade or so. Then there's the fact that, according to the Hollywood Reporter article, 'Half Pint Brawlers' is being billed as a cross between 'Jackass' and the aforementioned 'Little People, Big World.' That's a combination I can't even wrap my brain around, though if I had to try I'd have to go with little person mom Amy Roloff for the win. She could take them all down.
