Vader's spoof, Dark Helmet in the movie Spaceballs (1987), is depicted as being very short in stature; he is portrayed by Rick Moranis who is 5'0".
In the Monty Python sketch Archaeology Today, an interviewer (Michael Palin) demeans Professor Lucien Kastner (Terry Jones) for his were systematically discriminated against.

Nonetheless, on a cultural level in Post-industrial society, a sociological relationship between height and perceived attractiveness exists.
Biologically, from an evolutionary perspective, these findings are consistent with data relating height to human health.
In principle, it refers to discriminatory treatment against individuals whose height is not within the normal acceptable range of height in a population.A study produced by the Universities of Groningen and Valencia, has found that men who felt most anxious about attractive, physically dominant, and socially powerful rivals, were less jealous, the taller they were themselves.The report, produced by Dutch and Spanish researchers, stated that because average height women tend to be the most fertile and healthy, they would be less likely to feel threatened by women with those similar features.However, this correlation, though statistically significant, is generally weak and does not imply that variations in stature have a direct effect on cognitive ability.Though significant correlations have been found in early and late childhood in both developed and developing countries, in adults, changes in environment and social status reduce the strength of this correlation.
