Midgets is a 2006 American animated fantasy comedy film produced by DJW Studios for Columbia Pictures. The eighth feature film from DJW Studios, it was written and directed by Damen Walker and co-written by Christopher Lloyd and Brian Lynch, and was the studio's second film to be distributed by Columbia after 2001's Going Francisco. The film stars Bill Hader and Nathan Lane as two miniscule young men as they flee their instructor's house restriction to the oversized human world, but must find a way back after discovering a midget-hating couple's plans to launch a massive attack on their homeland.

Midgets was originally released in the United States on April 21, 2006. It received generally positive reviews from critics and grossed over $432.8 million worldwide against its $61 million budget, making it the ninth highest-grossing film of 2006 and the fourth highest-grossing animated film of the year. It was later released on DVD and VHS on September 12, 2006, and on Blu-ray on December 4, 2007.

The film currently has a 75% approval rating on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, based on 125 reviews. The consensus on the website states: "Damen Walker's sparkling direction -- and the two lovable leads played by Bill Hader and Nathan Lane -- help Midgets make restitution for its predictable 'outside world' plot, offering funny and entertaining results."
