‘7 Little Johnstons’ follows the Johnstons family who is living a happy life despite being little people. They are like any average American family who has their own dreams and needs like others. The first season of ‘7 Little Johnstons’ premiered on 31st March 2015 and it airs on TLC. It has since been one of the most popular shows on the network.
TLC network considers this family as the world’s largest known family of little people. From a disastrous attempt at a “birds and bees” discussion to high-drama soccer tryouts, to a family dealing with a huge renovation in their 1891 home, the Johnston family has been entertaining the audience for many years, and we simply can’t get enough of this adorable family.
The network is known for highlighting several different types of families, in an attempt to erase any trace of otherness that we might form in our minds based on external appearances and lifestyle choices. To this extent, they have shows on polyamorous families like ‘Sister Wives‘ and ‘Seeking Sister Wife‘. They also have an excellent show on a transgender girl called ‘I am Jazz‘. It is as fabulous as it is sensitive. ‘7 Little Johnstons’ is one among many TLC shows that focus on people who are short in stature. Some of these shows include ‘Our Little Family’ and ‘Little People, Big World‘. The aim of these shows is to remove the stigma around dwarfism and portray it as something completely normal by giving viewers a peek into the everyday lives of people who are affected by dwarfism.
