Luther the Dwarf is one of the original seven dwarfs seen on the fantasy situation comedy THE CHARMINGS/ABC/1987-88.
A long time ago, Luther (Cork Hubbert) fell victim to a spell that put him to sleep for 1000 years. When he awoke, he found himself in 20th century Burbank, California along with Prince Charming, Snow White and the evil stepmother Queen Lillian who had cast the spell which proved so powerful that even she was caught in its wake.
“Once upon a time there was a vain queen who was so jealous of her beautiful stepdaughter Snow White that she poisoned her with an apple, but a handsome prince came along and broke the spell. Snow White and Prince Charming threw the wicked stepmother down a bottomless pit and lived happily ever after. But it turns out the pit wasn’t bottomless, just very deep, and now the queen was very mad. With a spell so powerful even she couldn’t control it, she put the Charmings asleep for a thousand years. She also got herself and one dwarf. Eventually they woke up…”
Now, Luther and the other former residents of the Enchanted Forest live in a castle-like house at 427 Van Oakland Boulevard and try adjust to a new world filled with all sorts of strange, technological wonders.
Luther spends his time looking for hot chick to date, buying cool clothes (Hawaiian shirts) to replace those medieval threads he used to wear, taking care of the house and the Charming two boys Thomas & Cory.
Queen Lillian still likes to pull mischievous pranks on Luther like giving him a magic coin that will make him look like Prince “Eric” Charming. What he didn’t know was that it also makes Eric look like Luther.
