!!Trivia for the original film, ''Stitch Has a Glitch'', and the franchise in general:
* ActorAllusion: Kevin [=McDonald's=] character Pleakley dresses as a woman to blend in... something Kevin has done quite well with Series/TheKidsInTheHall.
** Kevin [=McDonald=] as a tall, slender alien...[[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim where have we seen this before?]]
* CastTheExpert: Tia Carrere and Jason Scott Lee, who play Nani and David, respectively, are both native Hawaiians and were often approached for advice on how to make their dialogue sound more authentically Hawaiian.
* ContestWinnerCameo: Tickle-Tummy.
* DeletedScene:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7L2ZY9UFj60 This scene was cut out of the movie.]] It got adapted into one of the ''Magazine/DisneyAdventures'' Comic Zone {{prequel}}s, "Sue-Whatsi?!?"
** There was also an alternate version of the opening trial where Stitch been declared "Public Nuisance Number One" on the planet [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Piztov]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2POGTTwJi8Y There was also this alternate version of Jumba attacking the Pelekai's house]], because it was deemed too violent for younger audiences.
*** In scene in the final film, Jumba recieved an interesting ArtShift, having much bigger and rounder head.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_i2JLC6-mUk This bedtime story scene]] was cut because it confused test audiences into thinking Nani was Lilo's mother rather than sister.
** 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 September 11th attacks occurred, after which the filmmakers wisely decided to alter it [[TooSoon for having too many eerie similarities to the real-life event.]]
* DescendedCreator: Creator/ChrisSanders voices Stitch in all animated incarnations of the character, except for the anime. This includes ''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.
* DoingItForTheArt: This is one of the only Disney films since the company's heyday that can truly be called "experimental": complete creative control was given to a small team, who designed the entire production and characters to resemble of one employee's personal drawing style. It was also the first since ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' to use watercolored backgrounds (that's right, the first one in ''over 60 years''). The result is something intimate and completely distinct.
** This extends to "inter-STITCH-als": the one in which Stitch hijacks ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' was done with cels and an analog camera because that film was made before Disney started using digital ink and paint. The production team went to the trouble of using a cumbersome, outdated technique all for the sake of ''one joke''.
* DuelingMovies: With ''Film/MenInBlackII'', which also dealt with aliens with rules and featured the OTHER King, Music/MichaelJackson. Disney won. It also went up against (and had a better fight with) the live-action ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' movie. It ''also'' debuted on the same day as another sci-fi film, ''Film/MinorityReport'', with which it had a ''close'' battle on opening weekend in the domestic box office. (''Minority Report'' earned less than $500,000 more money, but ''Lilo & Stitch'' sold more tickets because many of the attendees were children, who pay lower ticket prices.)
* FanNickname: This is stretching the trivia term quite a bit, but some fans add Lilo's surname (Pelekai) to Stitch's name to signify the closeness he has with his ''[='=]ohana'' and to portray him as being more like a brother to Lilo and Nani instead of just a pet like he's legally adopted as. (Mind you that the franchise ''already'' portrays him as a brother figure to the Pelekai sisters through his interactions with them, primarily Lilo.)
* OrphanedReference: Lilo taking and adorning her wall with photos of sunbathers might come off as just one of her quirks, but it was originally intended to be her way of dealing with racist white tourists, who would regularly stop her and ask if she was "going to do a hula dance" for them. This (understandably) made her feel like a caged animal, and the photos were her way of doing it right back to them.
* TheOtherDarrin:
** Lilo, who is usually voiced by Creator/DaveighChase, is voiced by Creator/DakotaFanning in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch2StitchHasAGlitch''.
** Nani's boyfriend, David, was voiced by Jason Scott Lee in the first movie and ''Stitch Has a Glitch'' and by Creator/DeeBradleyBaker in all subsequent appearances.
** Mertle Edmonds was voiced by Miranda Paige Walls in the original film and Liliana Mumy in all other appearances.
* RevivalByCommercialization: Many, ''many'' kids were introduced to Music/ElvisPresley thanks to this movie.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Chris Sanders' original pitch involved Stitch living alone in a forest in the Midwest and having the ability to imitate nature sounds, as the weather was the only thing that didn't run away from him in terror. Then-president of Walt Disney Feature Animation Thomas Schumacher suggested putting Stitch among humans, as the forest would already be "alien" for most viewers.
** ''Stitch Has a Glitch'' was actually meant to be released in theaters after ''Disney/TheJungleBook 2'', which is the reason why it has better production values. However, after the failure of the latter movie, Disney decided to release all the remaining planned theatrical sequels DirectToVideo.
** Lilo was originally supposed to be a witch who cursed people with her voodoo doll. This was changed in the movie, but some video games, like ''Lilo & Stitch: Trouble in Paradise'', were given this description of Lilo to work with and were never informed to change it, so ended up using it.
