* EvenEvilHasStandards: While Kevin O'Shea certainly isn't evil, we see that even though he wants to win the big game, he wants to do so fair and square and calls out Spike's father on his actions.

''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.

* DaddyDidntShow: Played with with Johnny's dad, who is seen going on at least two business trips in the two weeks before the game. Ultimately averted when he shows up for the game, causing Johnny to dodge the entire Cowboys team to hug him in the end zone.


Added DiffLines:

* KavorkaMan: Danny manages to attract a wife hot enough to birth Becky ''and'' Patty Floyd all while operating a failing service station, being rather plain looking, and also very short.

** The Giants get one when Becky walks into the locker room in her cheerleader outfit.
** And an amusing one when Jake's mom walks him in when they're trying on the football gear.

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.
