Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Fans of the 1970s cartoon series The Littles may enjoy its live-action spiritual ancestor The Borrowers. Dennis Larson plays an eight-year-old boy living in Victorian England. While exploring his aunt's (Dame Judith Anderson) mansion, Larson peeks under the floorboards...and what should he see but a family of inches-high humans (Eddie Albert, Tammy Grimes, Karen Pearson), who survive by "borrowing" bits and pieces from the Big People. Discovered, the Borrowers scramble to avoid being captured and displayed as curiosities. First telecast December 14, 1973, The Borrowers was based on the novel by Mary Norton (of Bedknobs and Broomsticks fame).
