Lilo, Stitch, Jumba and Pleakley have finally caught all of Jumba’s genetic experiments and found the one true place where each of them belongs.

Lilo & Stitch: The Series
Picking up where the 2002 Walt Disney movie hit left off, this animated series chronicles the further adventures of renegade scientist Dr. Jumba Jookiba’s beloved Experiment 626, who is now living happily as Lilo’s alien buddy Stitch. The previous 625 experiments become activated when submerged in water and, like Stitch, each experiment has its own terrible talent.
