Pequeños Gigantes (English: Small Giants) is a Hispanic reality talent show that originally premiered in Mexico on March 27, 2011, on Canal de las Estrellas and ended in July 24, 2011. It premiered the first season in the United States on June 19, 2011, on Univision and ended in September 5, 2011. Once again premiered the second season on May 19, 2012. The show is hosted by Galilea Montijo and Yurem Rojas, with Jimena as the backstage co-presenter.

The talent show televises seven groups of talented children from various Hispanic countries including the United States (each group comprises four children) competing against each other to receive the highest ranking at the end of each program, and for the first place and the grand prize. Each group is divided into three categories: charisma, singing, and dancing. In each group there is one captain whose talent is charisma, one singer, and two dancers.

Six judges give each child category a rating based from 1 to 10. The judges consist of Mexican theater-actress Bianca Marroquín, Mexican comedian actor Pierre Angelo, Mexican singer María José 'Josa', Argentine singer Noel Schajris, Mexican actor Manuel "Flaco" Ibáñez, Colombian singer Fanny Lu, and Spanish dancer Raquel Ortega.

After 16 episodes, "Los Irresistibles" won the grand cup and the 200,000 dollar prize in the grand finale. The team is composed of Javier, Miguel Ángel, Jorge and Daryna.[1]

Second-place are "Los Mega Estrellas": Grecia, Hiroshi, Jesús and Karla.[1]

Third-place are "Los Rebeldes": Montserrat, Magaby, Jerry and Ilenia.[1]
