Shorty is a character in the 1988 film Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

Shorty is one of the alien species of Killer Klowns that arrived in a Bigtop spaceship outside of Crescent Cove. He is hilariously sadistic, hiding in a pizza box, only to pop out and use a cotton candy gun on an unsuspecting teenage girl.

He approached a motorcycle gang on his mini-bike and was met with ridicule. One of the members smashed his bike and mocked him. Shorty, upset over the bike, put up his hands, challenging the biker to a fight. The biker asked "What are you going to do? Knock my block off?” Shorty punched off his head, sending the other bikers scrambling away.

Shorty may have survived the final battle in the bigtop ship, as he was not one of the klowns whose noses were destroyed. Despite the ship exploding, Mike Tobacco, Debbie Stone, and Rich and Paul Terenzi were hit in the face with pies.
