YouTube stars come in all sizes, including teeny-weeny in the case of a hamster who loves to stuff his hairy face with painstakingly-made, bitty burritos.

When Denizen, an award-winning social media agency, decided to post a video earlier this year of an adorable hamster eating little burritos while sitting on dollhouse-sized furniture, they had no idea the video "Tiny Hamsters Eating Tiny Burritos" would become a viral sensation with over 8 million views.

Now the company has returned with another meal for this lucky little rodent, but this time he gets a full Thanksgiving feast complete with a miniscule turkey. In "A Tiny Hamster Thanksgiving," a chef dressed as a pilgrim dishes up itsy-bitsy servings of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls and apple and pumpkin pies. The elaborate meal is served on poker chips.

This time the famous Tiny Hamster is joined by pals, which include another hamster, a rat and a rabbit -- all wearing festive pilgrim hats. They sit in Lilliputian chairs at an elaborately decorated dinner table -- complete with a pee-wee Horn of Plenty centerpiece.

In typical Thanksgiving tradition, the critters stuff their faces with the diminutive dinner. To be honest, these animals have better table manners than many humans.

For anyone concerned about the animals and what they're devouring, Denizen reassures viewers in the video description: "As always, we work with professional animal trainers to be sure that all the food is hamster/bunny/rat/cute animal safe."
