** One has to wonder what those mice would think if, in this universe, God made only humans in his image and favours them over other species—including the mice themselves. Probably best not to dwell on it.

Similar in many ways to BeneathTheEarth, MouseWorld exists in secret on the fringes of human society; the difference is scale. This is an entire class of stories built around tiny protagonists operating just out of sight in the human world. These come in a few flavors, but all share some important common elements. In any case, the lives of the little folk draw eerie parallels to the lives of the big-folk.

If they deal with human opponents directly, expect clever trickery, stealth and the odd ColossusClimb or GulliverTieDown. They may become DinkyDrivers to operate human vehicles. If humans aren't aware of them in the slightest (as in most cases), it's usually because they either have a strong WeirdnessCensor, the tiny species is keeping a complex and clever [[TheMasquerade masquerade]], or they simply regard talking and/or clothed {{Funny Animal}}s or tiny humanoids as an UnusuallyUninterestingSight. In some cases one lucky human ([[ChildrenAreSpecial usually a child]]) SpeaksFluentAnimal and is the only human character in the story aware of the tiny species. In combination with an IncredibleShrinkingMan, you can have a TrappedInAnotherWorld plot. Other slightly larger animals such as cats and dogs may also play a role in this world, but expect AnimalJingoism to come into play, along with examples of CatsAreMean.

* Most of ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' is set in a "normal" human world; however, the episode "The Third Mouse" (a parody of ''Film/TheThirdMan'') is set inexplicably in a 1940's MouseWorld.
