Tiny home living is still trending, but a fun blog on HGTV reminded us how some famous fictional characters have long embraced small space dwellings. Remember Jeannie’s bottle on I Dream of Jeannie? Oscar the Grouch’s compact trash can condo on Sesame Street? The Keebler elves and their mini tree house abode?
