Shorty is a supporting character in Disney's 2010 animated feature, Tangled. He the oldest and possibly craziest member of the Pub Thugs.

Background

Personality

Shorty is drunken at every moment, apparently. Sluggish, bumbling and borderline insane, Shorty is the embodiment of the "old loon" stereotype. He is unpredictable, both verbally and through his actions, as he is sometimes found having full conversations with inanimate objects, or bathing in milk. Despite his quirks, Shorty is also very friendly and warm-hearted. Furthermore, he is not totally oblivious; in the episode "One Angry Princess", Shorty was trapped in a candy store with the Snuggly Duckling's goat, Milton. When Milton began damaging the store, Shorty recognized the trouble, but was too tired and ultimately indifferent to do anything about it. Later that same episode, it was his testimony that saved Attila from banishment after the latter was wrongly accused of vandalism. In "Challenge of the Brave", Shorty managed to trick Eugene into buying an overpriced ticket for the episode's titular event, showing a cunning side.

Appearances

Tangled

Shorty was first seen without any lines during the song "I've Got a Dream". Right after the song, he spots Mother Gothel who is spying on Rapunzel with the thugs. He begins to flirt with her until she puts a knife to his nose and demands to know where the secret tunnel in which Rapunzel and Flynn escaped through leads. Later on, he and the other thugs break Flynn out of prison. Shorty is last seen being floated up into the sky by lanterns during the kingdom's celebration commemorating Rapunzel's return.

Tangled Ever After

In Tangled Ever After, Shorty stands next to Flynn at the beginning of the ceremony, but is playfully shoved out of the way upon his comment on Rapunzel's appearance. Later, at the end of the ceremony, he is seen yelling "Happy birthday!"

Tangled: Before Ever After

Shorty is seen in Corona Castle during Eugene's verse of "Life After Happily Ever After". He, along with most of the main thugs, appears to have become one of Eugene's closest companions outside of Rapunzel and Maximus.

Tangled: The Series

Season one

In "What the Hair?!", Shorty is the only thug that doesn't mind Big Nose's ramblings about his relationship with Assunta.

In "Fitzherbert P.I.", Shorty attends royal guard training (at first believing the trainee line-up to be the line to the restroom) but does not participate in the drills. He later joins Eugene and Cassandra in stopping a thief, which puts Eugene into the Captain's good graces (to an extent). He then becomes Eugene's teaching assistant for the latter's own training class. A running gag is that he appears in places he's not supposed to be at.

In "Great Expotations", Cassandra ditches Varian at the last minute, leaving him in need of an assistant for his science presentation. In desperation, Varian chooses Shorty, though the thug's clumsiness leads to Varian's disqualification. When Dr. Croix accidentally causes Varian and Fernanda Pizazzo's machines to malfunction, Shorty works with Rapunzel, Eugene, Big Nose, Maximus and Pascal to help Varian and Cassandra save the day.

In "One Angry Princess", Shorty helps Rapunzel in proving Attila's innocence just before the latter was shipped off to a remote prison for the crime of vandalism. Shorty explains to the Captain of the Guards that it was not Attila who vandalized Monty's shop, but Milton the Goat, who got stuck in the candy store after closing hours, and went berserk after hearing the bell of Monty's door chime—wrecking the shop in the process.

In "Pascal's Story", Shorty is loafing around in the castle, giving a motivational speech to a plant as a depressed Pascal walks by. Pascal believes Shorty to be talking to him, and has his spirits lifted as a result.

In "The Wrath of Ruthless Ruth", when Rapunzel takes shelter at the Snuggly Duckling to avoid increased scrutiny by the royal guard, only for the Captain of the Guards to walk in, he accidentally caused Ruthless Ruth's club to fall off its handle, resulting in her ghost possessing Shorty, demanding they, "Listen Up" if they hope to see the light of day. All occupants of the Snuggly Duckling soon sing Ruth's song to enable her ghost to move on.

In "Secret of the Sun Drop", Shorty is passed off as Rapunzel's decoy for the kingdom's assault on Old Corona; he tries singing, "Wind in My Hair" but is silenced by Eugene before he could finish the first verse. Unfortunately, Shorty's disguise fails to work, as Varian unleashes an army of automatons against the party.

Season two

In "Beyond the Corona Walls Intentionally, Shorty was not a squad member of Rapunzel's adventure outside Corona, but he sneaked into the food storage of the caravan before departure until Cassandra discovered him on the road to Vardaros. He, Eugene and Lance are captured by Anthony the Weasel and brought before the Baron. Shorty learns from Lance that Eugene was formerly engaged to the Baron's daughter, Stalyan. Both Shorty and Lance were threatened with death to force Eugene to marry Stalyan and imprisoned. Subsequently, when their companions did battle with the Baron's men at the wedding, Shorty accidentally bumps into the Baron just as he was about to unleash his Kai spider on Eugene, causing the Baron to be bitten instead.

In "Freebird", Shorty is transformed into a bird off-screen by the Mother and Father and thus unwittingly produced the magical eggs needed to restore himself and Rapunzel back to human form after the original supply was used up to help the villains' other victims.
