Main article: Lilo & Stitch

An extraterrestrial mad scientist named Dr. Jumba Jookiba (David Ogden Stiers) is put on trial for illegally creating creatures to cause chaos and destruction. His latest experiment is Number 6-2-6 (Chris Sanders): a cute little blue alien with four arms, two legs and antennae who is deceptively strong and indestructible. 6-2-6 is sentenced to exile, while Jumba himself is jailed.

Masquerading as a dog, 6-2-6 is adopted by a little girl named Lilo Pelekai (Daveigh Chase) who is living with her 19-year-old sister Nani (Tia Carrere). Lilo is lonely and a bit of an outcast until she finds a new friend in 6-2-6 whom she names "Stitch."

Stitch! The Movie (2003)[edit]

Main article: Stitch! The Movie

Ex-Captain Gantu on his new spaceship (his original got destroyed in the first film), being hired by Hämsterviel to retrieve the experiments. Meanwhile, on Earth, Stitch is still not fitting in. Lilo tries to encourage him by saying he's one-of-a-kind, comparing him to Frankenstein.

Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch (2005)[edit]

In this movie (set before Stitch the Movie) Lilo and her classmates are preparing for a hula competition where the winner gets to perform at the local May Day festival. Each student is required to create an original dance. While preparing for the competition, Stitch's past comes back to haunt him. It seems that after Stitch was created, Jumba did not get a chance to fully charge Stitch's molecules before they were both arrested. At first this glitch causes Stitch to revert to his old destructive programming, but it will ultimately destroy him if Jumba cannot create a charging pod before Stitch's energy runs out.

Leroy & Stitch (2006)[edit]

Main article: Leroy & Stitch

After three years, their mission to capture all 624 experiments and repurpose them on Earth has been completed, so Lilo and her family are honored as heroes by the Galactic Alliance.

TV Series (2003-2012)[edit]

Lilo & Stitch: The Series (2003-2006)[edit]

Continuing where Stitch! The Movie left off, Lilo and Stitch are given the task of collecting the rest of Jumba's missing experiments, changing them from bad to good, and finding the one place where they truly belong. Meanwhile, the former Captain Gantu and his reluctant partner, experiment 625, try to capture the experiments for the imprisoned Dr. Hämsterviel.

Running for two seasons and a total of 65 episodes, the series ended with the direct-to-DVD movie Leroy & Stitch. The series has been adapted into an anime series, Stitch! in Japan, taking place a few decades after Leroy and Stitch. The series had low quotes in the USA, but it was also a great hit in Europe. On May 29, 2007, Lilo and Stitch moved from its daily 12 p.m. time slot to its new daily time slot at 5 and 5:30 a.m.

Stitch! (2008-2012)[edit]

Main article: Stitch!

The show features a Japanese girl named Yuna in place of Lilo, and is be set on a fictional island off the shore of Okinawa instead of Hawaii.

Disney's Stitch: Experiment 626 is a platform game for the PlayStation 2 on June 19, 2002.[35] It also serves as a prequel to the original film Lilo & Stitch. In the game, the player plays as Experiment 626 as he battles robots, mutated monsters (called Greemas), Experiment 621, and causes mass destruction. Disney's Stitch: Experiment 626 is about finding DNA for Jumba's illegal genetic mutations. The game is set as a prequel to the first movie, describing 626's destructive rampage around the galaxy until his capture by the Galactic Federation.

Disney's Stitch: Experiment 626 is a basic platformer, with an environment for exploring, item finding and fighting enemies. Plasma guns are the standard armaments. With his four arms, Stitch can equip up to 4 at once, but only 2 when climbing or holding an object. There are 2 special weapons: a "Big Gun" that fires guided rockets which do massive damage and a Freeze Ray which coats enemies in ice. Platformers commonly include collectibles that the player must equip and find to progress throughout the game. Stitch is under the control of Jumba at the time of the game, and he orders Stitch to find DNA samples, which assist him in performing more experiments. Squid bots allow the player to try and garner a "movie reel", these reels are used to buy various scenes from the movie. Stitch also can find gadgets to assist him in navigating the environment. Grapple guns are provided to allow Stitch to swing over hazardous substances or to reach difficult spots. A jet pack is also featured which can allow Stitch limited flight time.

Disney's Stitch: Experiment 626 has many enemies in his dangerous and deadly quest for DNA. These include UGF soldiers, frogbots, heavy soldiers, Gantu's elite frogbots, mutant greemas and buzzers. Bosses include Dr. Habbitrale in his giant robot, 621 (after being mutated), and Gantu.

The game was met with mixed reception upon release; GameRankings gave it a score of 63.59%,[24] while Metacritic gave it 59 out of 100.[25]
