''Little Giants'' is a 1994 family sports comedy starring Creator/RickMoranis and Ed O'Neill.

This is the story of two brothers, Kevin (O'Neil) and Danny (Moranis) O'Shea. One was blessed with the kind of raw football talent given to those who were born to bask in gridiron glory. The other,…became Rick Moranis. As the two grew up and made families of their own, Danny stood in the shadow of the pedestal the residents of their hometown had placed upon Kevin.

This is the story of two brothers, Kevin (O'Neil) and Danny (Moranis) O'Shea. One was blessed with the kind of raw football talent given to those who were born to bask in gridiron glory. The other, well…became Rick Moranis. As the two grew up and made families of their own, Danny stood in the shadow of the pedestal the residents of their hometown had placed Kevin upon.

That all changed one day when Danny's daughter, Becky O'Shea (Shawna Waldron) wanted to try out for the local pee-wee football team, the Cowboys, coached by her uncle Kevin. Unfortunately, despite the fact that she is often acknowledged as the best player in the entire town, she is passed over simply because she's a girl. Not wanting to be put down by this, she [[StartMyOwn proceeds to form her own football team with the other kids not deemed good enough to make the Pee Wee Cowboys team]]. They manage to get Danny as their head coach and name themselves "The Little Giants". Inevitably, they go up against the Cowboys in a game to decide which team gets to stay as the town's correspondent in the Pee Wee League as two teams can't play from the same town.
