The Battle of the Push Bench Gang was a battle which took place in April 2003, in which the Midget Army and Word Life Gang conquered the Rebel Side from the Push Bench Gang.

After the Midget Civil War, the Rebel Side was left abandoned. As the former territory of the New And Improved Midgets, both the Word Life Gang (successors of the New And Improved Midgets) and the Midget Empire, victors of the Civil War, had a claim to it. However, before either side could enforce their claim, the land was occupied by the Push Bench Gang, a gang called such due to their custom of standing on the bench in the Rebel Side and trying to push each other off whilst screaming hysterically. Midget Commanders Jonathan and Gregory were sent to remove the Push Bench Gang, but the Gang refused and so Midget Master Daniel ordered Jonathan to prepare an invasion force. Jonathan went to the Word Life Gang and requested an alliance against the Push Bench Gang, which they accepted.

Using a battle plan of Jonathan's, the leader of the Word Life Gang (Jack) and most of the Midget Army charged from the Line into the Rebel Side to attack the Push Bench Gang, shouting a war cry of "Midget Attaaaaacck!" On hearing this, Jonathan ran out from behind the Music Hut along with the Word Life Gang and the rest of the Midget Army, surrounding the Push Bench Gang, which surrendered and was escorted from the Rebel Side, defeated.

It was decided that the Word Life Gang would have the half of the Rebel Side closest to the Lower Playground, and that the Midget Empire would have both the other half of the Rebel Side and the passageway behind the Music Hut that Jonathan had used to attack the Push Bench Gang. The Midget Empire and Word Life Gang continued to be strong allies after this conflict.

On 30 December 2009, Midget Master Caroline III issued a formal apology "for the hostile actions taken by the Midget Army" against the Push Bench Gang.
