"The Little Peas" is the twelfth episode in season 5 of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. The episode aired on November 22, 2007.
This episode tells the story of "The Big Cheese" through the eyes of a pint-sized imaginary friend named Peas, detailing how he helped Frankie turn a negative into a positive.
The episode starts with Frankie telling the whole house about the upcoming news report, when Cheese shows up. Meanwhile, Peas, a green imaginary friend wearing a thimble, shows a positive attitude about the situation and sets off to work. However, Peas sees that Cheese is still inside the house so he tries to warn Frankie. He finds Frankie carrying laundry at the entrance when Mr Herriman calls every imaginary friend outside to test out the new security system. Frankie drops the clothes basket with Peas in, and goes outside. Mr Herriman locks the door, and Peas is the only imaginary friend still inside. He tries and tries to open the front doors so everyone can get back in, but he ultimately fails. But, while he fails to open the front doors, when he gets outside, he convinces Frankie to turn the broadcast around and use it to ask for charity. They then use the charity money to fix up Foster's and get a new security system, which Cheese immediately bypasses.
- The episode was produced and aired during the 2007-08 Writer's Guild of America strike, which explains why most of it is recycled footage from "The Big Cheese".
- This episode's title card was never shown in the U.S.A.
- In this episode, Peas can't be heard by anyone unless he speaks in their ear or uses a megaphone. But in "The Bloo Superdude and the Great Creator of Everything's Awesome Ceremony of Fun That He's Not Invited To", he can be heard very clearly when Bloo almost steps on him.
- This episode's title card is very similar to "The Big Cheese".
