I am trying to figure out the name of the show, too.  I remember it was on about the same time as Superman and The Millionare and before Dark Shadows, so the early 60's?  I remember the beginning showing the little man being menaced by a cat.

for some reason - I was thinking of this tv show too.  I can't remember much about it except that the little man lived in the briefcase and it was some sort of spy show.

The series is titled World of Giants and it ran for thirteen episodes in 1959, starring Arthur Franz and Marshall Thompson as the shrunken man. I was trying to find information about it when I found this site. It's not a well documented TV series but I was able to find out enough about it to satisfy my curiosity. There are even video downloads of it online. I don't know if they are clips or full episodes. That show is probably my earliest memory of television - it must've made quite an impression!

I remember this series but don't know the name was in the late 1960's

I will try and answer all questions dealing with names, plots, actors, roles, networks, etc...US shows primarily; not real knowledgeable on TV from other countries...I lean heavily into past, more so than current, television...and, my knowledge dealing with "reality" shows is limited, due to the fact that I really can't stand the genre (my apologies to all the "Reality" fans out there...)
