Lilo & Stitch: The Series (2003–2006)
User ReviewsReview this title
So, if you are a fan of Lilo and Stitch, check out the series! It's fun!
The animation in the series is nowhere NEAR the quality that we saw in the movie, but the stories are engaging and often hilarious. I totally enjoy the continued adventures of Lilo & Stitch and their friends - and it's cool to see the 625 experiments that went before our beloved experiment 626.
This show is good for kids, but has lots of great stuff for adults to appreciate.
Lilo lives with her sister Nani, and often causes trouble while trying to capture experiments with her loyal, lovable, and evil pet "dog" Stitch. When they find an experiment, they try to capture it before Gantu, who work for Hamsterveil, an evil hamster. Once they capture it, they turn it good and find it's true place.
It is a beautiful show and actually has some cute take-offs from things like Jurrasic Park and Fantastic Voyage. I really like the theme song and sing it every time I watch. My all-time favorite experiments are Stitch,625, and Angel. A favorite series exchange was actually said by Kim Possible in the crossover episode, Rufus: when Jumba says " You're Possible Kim, yes?" Kim said"No-I mean yes,am Possible Kim... Why are we talking like this?" I wouldn't have started to watch Disney Channel if not for Lilo and Stitch.
the series cant finish now, it must finish showing 628 and all the stitch's cousins in the home that they belong i would like to have all the experiments like pets, because their evil uses are very original and funny.
my favorite episode is that one of spikes, that makes everyone get silly, i couldn't stop laughing
Many laughs available from many different episodes, backed up by several movies which are equally as, if not more enjoyable than the episodes. My only wish is that the USA's 'Leroy and Stitch' comes to the UK.
Like the movie, the plot of the series is for Lilo and Stitch to hunt down the other 623 experiments floating around the island before Gantu can get his greedy paws on them, convert them to good, and find the one place they all belong on the island. I admit, although I was skeptical of the movie, I was virtually ecstatic that Disney was making a TV show on this idea. I love the oldies: "101 Dalmatians," "Raw Toonage," Tale Spin," "Timon and Pumbaa," yada yada yada, and thought to give it a shot. Like the movie, this series is too bland to satisfy my taste for something as likable as the original.
First of all, it's too predictable. They confront a creature and turn it to good, learn a moral in the process, done. However there have been a few times, emphasis on few, that Gantu has succeeded against them. Secondly, a lot of characters seem out of character. In the first movie, Gantu was a strong, important, and disciplined military leader. Now, he's bumbling, clumsy, silly, and lost my respect. Pleakley and Jumba, who had very good comedic value to add, are now repetitive and boring. The only characters who remain virtually the same are Stitch and Lilo. Also, for such a grand saga that Disney created, you think they could have a bigger, better, more menacing villain than the small alien rodent, Dr. Hamsterveil. In plain words, he's downright annoying.
Now throughout my ranting, there are a few things I love about the series too. 625, the "sandwich-making freak", has lasting appeal and is actually very funny in my opinion, and gives the show a little more reason to watch. Also, it's fun seeing all those experiments run amuck on the island. They're all lovable. And of course, Stitch. How can we forget him? He's still that evil, loving creature and always will be, no matter how much Disney destroys him.
In conclusion: "Lilo and Stitch: The Series" is nothing more than a simple sequel to the sequel that will only be loved by small kids and hard-core fans of the blue UFO, and even a few of them choose to tune this one out. Like every show, it has its moments, but not enough to do justice to the first movie. It's like the Disney version of "Pokemon", predictable and too kid-friendly. I love Stitch and his mysterious, funny babbling to death, but Disney fails us again.
Any chance that the episodes of "Lilo & Stitch: The Series" will be coming to DVD?? Cause I would love to own every show!
,teens and yes, even adults(My mom likes it too!)
Lilo and Stitch find one of Stich's "Cousins", try to catch it, usually fail, Ganut comes, makes a fool of himself and fails too. In the end Stitch always comes through and catches the experiment and Lilo finds it a new home!
ALWAYS THE SAME IN EVERY PAINFUL EPISODE!
Lilo's voice actress isn't even trying anymore and she needs to quit her job before she completely ruins the rest of her young life!
Another thing about this stupid show is the theme song, it's so...urrg...my ears are still bleeding from that racket! ><
The reason for this show? It's quite simply. Disney desperately wants money and they scope to new lows by making pointless sequels and shows like this!
My rating: 0/10
However, there are some things that didn't quite work as well. While I liked the episode ideas they were very intriguing, some of them border on predictable and sometimes even generic. The script quality isn't as good as it was in the film, of course there are some good laughs and all that, but it isn't as funny or as poignant as the script from the film. Finally, some of the characters' personalities feel distorted. Pleakley isn't as hilarious here, and he feels out of character. But I was more disappointed with how the writers treated Nani who is rather hit-and-miss in this series. She is still warm and caring towards her sister and gives good advice, but at other times she is really mean towards her, like in one episode when she says she doesn't trust her and even threatened to get rid of Stitch. Sure Lilo has made a lot of mistakes, but a lot of people do. I am 17, and I make mistakes all the time.
In conclusion, this show is decent but not great. 7/10 Bethany Cox
1. This would've been so much better as a series aimed at teenagers and such. Not messed up anime but more like an action show. With less child friendly stuff. Like epic battles and stuff.
2. To "After School Special-y." It always has a moral and such. It's really annoying.
I understand it's based off of a children's movie (a pretty good one for Disney's more recent works. *cough*homeontherange*cough*) But if the creators had decided to pitch this to a different channel with different characters and such with less childy things it'd be awesome. The show itself has it's moments. The characters do sort of grow on you although they can be annoying at times.
Overall, 5/10 stars. Great premise, bad execution.
