** On the digital distribution and streaming front, all four ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' [[Disney/LiloAndStitch2StitchHasAGlitch films]] are on services such as [=iTunes=], Amazon, and Creator/{{Netflix}}, but ''The Series'' has never been made legally available for either home or digital video in its entirety in the West.[[note]]However, it seems that ''The Series'' [[https://www.netflix.com/title/70177047 was apparently on Netflix]] at one point.[[/note]] There will be a lot of missing context if one were to watch both ''WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie'' and ''Leroy & Stitch'' without ever having seen ''The Series''. The show is legally available on digital services in some countries and in English, but primarily in countries outside of the Anglosphere.
*** Going even further, despite being produced and broadcast in UsefulNotes/HighDefinition at 16:9 widescreen, most uploads of ''The Series''--legal and illegal--are only in standard-def at 4:3 full-screen.

** The executives did not like [[LoveInterest Angel]] and didn't want her to appear again. After finding out about [[BreakoutCharacter her popularity among fans]], they relented, but only for [[GrandFinale the last episode]]. Of course, nowadays, Disney is all too willing to give her some regular promotion and merchandise, and they made sure to make up for screwing her out of this show by giving much more appearances through the following ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'' anime.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Subverted, sort of. Some fans believe that Disney canceled the show, but in actuality, the show was planned to be a SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon from the start. Never mind the fact that Disney did produce ''[[WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch a finale film]]'' for the show.

* CreatorsFavoriteEpisode: Jess Winfield stated on his TV Tome Q&A thread (partial fan archive [[http://lilo-andstitch.tripod.com/tvtome/page03.html here]]) that his favorite episode was "Yin-Yang", saying that the episode's experiments, story, and theme worked well together. "Angel" and "Bonnie & Clyde" were also his other favorites. However, he stated this in December 2004, during the early days of the second season, so it's unknown if his opinions have changed afterwards.
