Shorty McShorts' Shorts is a Disney Channel animated anthology series, which consisted of 4-5 minute shorts. The first episode aired on July 28, 2006.

The series also aired on Toon Disney for a short period of time. In Latin America, it was broadcast on Jetix (now Disney XD).


The host of the show is Shorty McShorts. His name is often shortened to "Shorty" or "SMS", which appears on the hat that he wears. He also wears blue shorts and is the train conductor for his own Short Line. He appears in advertisements for the show and in the introduction and conclusion of each short. He does not appear in any of the shorts.

The show takes form of a Saturday morning cartoon, as the shorts that are shown could very well be installments of their own miniseries. The Boyz on Da Run shorts appear in a certain order and have three episodes attached as a miniseries. The other episodes do belong to their own miniseries, but the way the shorts are set up suggests that more installments under the same name could be produced.

Broadcast history

The series mainly received mediocre reviews. Having received an average rating of 4.9 out of 10.0 on, episodes premiered week after week until the 6th episode. The best received episode was the "Boyz on Da Run" getting an 8.4 out of 10.0. The third part of the "Boyz on Da Run" miniseries was the last episode of Season 1, having aired on September 29, 2006.

The show went into hiatus until April 2007. During the meantime, another short series, Minuscule, filled in as a substitute for Shorty McShorts' Shorts during its hiatus. The second season was on air for only a very limited time, as it aired new episodes only for one month straight (April 20, 2007 - May 25, 2007). The best received episode, and last to air, was "Flip-Flopped", getting a 10.0 out of 10.0 and receiving controversy.

Shorty McShorts' Shorts was last shown on June 2007, before being completely cancelled. The show ended with a rating of 5.1 out of 10.0 on Reruns were rarely shown, and were used mainly as time slot fillers, until they stopped airing altogether. The show's web page on has since been removed, and currently, extinct.

The short, SheZow!, was later revived as a TV series on Hub Network.
