The Minions are the best thing to ever happen. Once helpers in the movie Despicable Me, they have rightfully taken over the franchise, spawning endless merchandise and their own spinoff movie.

Their appearance is simple, a yellow tic tac wearing overalls and goggles, with one or two eyes. The average minion is 3.5 feet tall or about 105cm, the smallest known minion is 3.1 feet tall or about 95cm. The height of the tallest minion is currently unknown. Memes including these minions are often shared on Facebook. The memes have nothing to do with minions, and the jokes themselves are often amazing.

The minions all come from the minion's mother, however, the father is currently unknown. Other family includes Felonious Gru along with his 3 daughters and wife.
