A person whose dwarfism who is not noted specifically and is played for laughs.
Rolling Updates. Needs a Better Description. A dwarf (a person with dwarfism) is a person with an adult height of 147 cm (58 in) or shorter. There are two kinds of dwarfism, disproportionate dwarfism (like achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism) and proportionate dwarfism (like growth-hormone deficiency). In many cartoons, videogames, and other animated works, and comics, there are people who are dwarfs (that is, 58 in or shorter) without being noted as such at all and are Played for Laughs. Sometimes there are a few or some Comically Sized persons in the work, other times, many or most of the people in the work are Comically Sized. This trope is about the tendency for most cartoons and many comics to feature a disproportionate large number of dwarfs in a general population. That is, more dwarfs in a general population than in Real Life. Also, cartoons exagerate. If a charater is quite short - say 5 foot, they will appear 4 in a cartoon. This trope is also about people whose dwarf status isn't noted, but is Played for Laughs. Related to Fun Size, Pint-Sized Kid, Teens Are Short, Cartoonish Companions, and Miniature Senior Citizens.
