Disneytoon-cember Part 29: Lilo and Stitch: The Series

Lilo and Stitch was a hit at the box offices but everyone started wondering if Stitch was experiment 626 what happened to the other experiments before him? Well a few months passed and Disney released the direct to home video/DVD called Stitch: The Movie which answers our questions. It turns out that there are 625 other experiments that Jumba worked on with his lab partner Hämsterviel and in the movie Hämsterviel tries to steal the other 625 experiments from Jumba to conquer the galaxy but Lilo and Stitch thwart his plans and have him arrested, but the experiments get scattered across the island. Now Lilo and Stitch must find all the experiments, reform them, and keep them out of the hands of Gantu who is working with Hämsterviel.

That’s pretty much the show right there. An experiment gets released on the island and Lilo and Stitch have to find it, reform it, and give it a new home on the island. Each of the experiments have different powers. Some can control the forces of nature, some are strong while others are fast, and some have powers to alter egos or time travel. And they all have different designs so the artists for this show got pretty created with them and the powers were all unique and interesting. As far as characters go Lilo and Stitch as well as everyone else maintain their personalities they had in the movies however they did flanderize Gantu in the show. When we first saw him he was this no nonsense skilled captain maintaining peace in the universal. Now, he’s a bumbling bounty hunter who even Lilo can outsmart. It’s pretty sad really. As far as the show went it was okay it did expand more on the Lilo and Stitch universe and it was nice to see their family grow bigger just like they always wanted but the show does start to get predictable as you watched it. The show was obviously meant for kids but still adults can sit down and enjoy it as well if they wanted to. Lilo and Stitch was an okay series. It took one of Disney’s most creative ideas and turned it into a watchable series.
