** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxmT-zQc1GQ This infamous deleted scene]]shows Lilo being attacked by seagulls as she tries to show Pudge the fish to Stitch, who was still a {{Jerkass}} then and simply watches the scene in amusement. When Pudge dies from asphyxiation and presumably being pecked by seagulls, Lilo gets mad at Stitch for letting Pudge die and takes the fish to bury him next to her parents' graves, leading to Stitch having a HeelRealization moment. Although the scene was fully voiced, it thankfully never got past storyboards and was cut for its dark tone.

** In North America, the franchise peaked somewhere around Stages 3 or 4, but Disney's misguided over-promotion of Stitch (especially in [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Walt Disney World]]), the [[{{Sequelitis}} mixed reception of the franchise's sequel material]], and [[ReplacementScrappy the hatred towards]] Ride/StitchsGreatEscape caused the franchise to lose all momentum and become a strange hybrid of all three Stage 6 scenarios, if only because it's still a reasonably successful Disney-owned franchise. Most Americans today seem to only vaguely remember [[TheProtagonist Sti]][[TitleCharacter tch]] and the ''[[TrueCompanions 'ohana]]'' [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind motto]], and don't recall any of the sequel films, series, or most of the other characters besides maybe the ''other'' title character. [[Characters/LiloAndStitchExperiments The experiments]] even lost their Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} article in 2016 since there were very few Western fans left on The Other Wiki to defend it.[[note]]Compare the former article's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_experiments_from_Lilo_&_Stitch first deletion nomination in 2006]] to its [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/List_of_experiments_from_Lilo_&_Stitch_(4th_nomination) fourth and final nomination in 2016.]][[/note]] Tellingly, Disney's last major push for the franchise over there, the airing of the ''Stitch!'' anime's English dub in 2011 (which first debuted in Australia in 2009), ended in disaster with them pulling the anime off the air after only five episodes in less than a week due to supposed [[AmericansHateTingle fandom backlash]]. However, Stitch still has [[EnsembleDarkhorse just enough popularity]] to at least have been voted into ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'' starting its second game, and still gets a regular flow of merchandise.

** It's a little better going eastward with the franchise having a slightly bigger presence in Europe (not only did the anime's English and other language dubs air in full there, one can go see Stitch Live!, a.k.a. Stitch Encounter, in [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland Paris]] and possibly even see Jumba, Pleakley, and some of the other experiments over there during special events), while in East Asia, especially Japan, the franchise has [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff near-mainstream popularity]], considering the existence of the aforementioned anime and China's ''Animation/StitchAndAi'', Tokyo Disneyland having Stitch Encounter[[note]]which is also in Shanghai Disneyland and was also in Hong Kong Disneyland where it originated[[/note]] and their own exclusive Stitch-themed version of Ride/TheEnchantedTikiRoom, their version of ''Theatre/{{Fantasmic}}'' having a ''Lilo & Stitch'' segment with [[LoveInterest An]][[DistaffCounterpart ge]][[BreakoutCharacter l]] making an appearance, having more ''Lilo & Stitch'' characters available for regular meet-and-greets, and of course a crapton more Stitch merchandise being sold over there.



* NoExportForYou: Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo inverted this from 2004-2009, when they sold a 2-Disc ''Lilo & Stitch'' DVD in Europe and Australia, but not the US. While they did originally announce that America would also get it in 2004, the date got repeatedly pushed back, until it ended up reaching stores the same day ''Disney/{{Bolt}}''[[labelnote:*]]originally written and co-directed by ''L&S'' creator Chris Sanders, but he got replaced during production[[/labelnote]] came to DVD.

** Probably the most infamous one would have to be [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqh-kEPYr5s the original showdown between the heroes and Gantu]], in which the former chase the latter down with a hijacked 747 though a city, both aircrafts weaving through, and coming within dangerous proximity to, tall buildings. The scene was finalized at the worst possible time: mere days before the TooSoon/SeptemberEleventh attacks occurred, after which the filmmakers wisely decided to alter it [[TooSoon for having too many eerie similarities to the real-life event.]]

* TechnologyMarchesOn: There is one thing in this movie that dates it to [[TurnOfTheMillennium the early 2000s]]; the tourists are using film cameras. Today's tourists would be using smartphones and tablets to take snapshots.

* DescendedCreator: Creator/ChrisSanders voices Stitch in all Western animated incarnations of the character, as well as many of Disney's crossover works including ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', ''VideoGame/KinectDisneylandAdventures'', and ''VideoGame/DisneyInfinity'', all of which were released after he left Disney for Creator/DreamWorksAnimation. So despite his departure, Sanders continues to voice Stitch in every opportunity he gets.

* BeamMeUpScotty: The ''[[TrueCompanions 'ohana]]'' motto is sometimes misquoted as "Family means NoOneGetsLeftBehind"; while the last five words is the name of the trope, in the motto those words are actually "no'''body''' gets left behind".
