Shorty McShorts' Shorts is a Disney Channel animated anthology series, which consists of 5-minute shorts. The first episode aired on July 28, 2006. In Latin America, it is broadcast on Jetix.
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, so far, three episodes attached the miniseries. The other episodes do belong to their own miniseries, but the way the shorts are setup suggest that more installments under the same name could be produced.
