A fun format for the whole family! Showcasing children’s extraordinary talents and abilities, SMALL VS. TALL lets young contestants challenge some of the best athletes, celebrities and professionals in their fields. More than five million viewers on average make this show one of the most popular formats on German television.


In SMALL VS. TALL kids with unique talents face off against celebrities who think they might be able to beat them. This is not your average talent show. SMALL VS TALL has some of the biggest, baddest, most over the top challenges ever.

The children can show what they are made of and after their duel one of their greatest wishes is fulfilled – regardless of whether they have won or lost their duel.

In each program there are 10 duels and the prominent studio guests bet on the outcome of the duels during the program and can thus win 30,000 euros for a good cause.

The show has been running on ARD since 2011 and has created more than 350 individual challenges, giving producers a deep creative well to draw from. The show can also be seen in Austria on ORF and in Switzerland on SRF.
