Trivia / Stitch!

Go To

  • Adaptation First: The first video game based on the anime, Disney Stitch Jam, was released in the United States in March 2010, which was over a year before its brief run in that country, although since the anime itself is an adaptation of the Disney film, it can be considered a Recursive Adaptation as well.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices:

  • Channel Hop: From TV Tokyo in the first season to TV Asahi for the next two seasons.
  • Fan Nickname: The show is often called the "Stitch! anime" instead of its singular title Stitch! to avoid any confusion and ambiguity with Stitch! The Movie and the title character himself. Oddly enough, the show does have an official alternate name (Yuna & Stitch) that's used in the German dub, but it's not used by the English-speaking fandom at large.
  • God Never Said That: Many comments on the Internet (primarily from the Anglosphere) like to say that Chris Sanders and/or Disney called the anime non-canonical to the rest of the Lilo & Stitch franchise. There has not been any evidence to confirm this—no interviews, videos, or even tweets from any of them. (Not to mention, even if Sanders did, he does not own the franchise he made.)

  • No Export for You: Most of the English dub has still yet to be aired in the U.S., and Disney+ doesn't even include it in any region other than Japan.
  • The Other Darrin: None of the original English voice cast such as Chris Sanders, Daveigh Chase, Kevin Michael Richardson, Frank Welker, Kevin McDonald or Rob Paulsen from the Lilo & Stitch movies and Lilo & Stitch: The Series reprise their roles for this anime, despite Sanders still voicing Stitch in other media, albeit working at DreamWorks Animation. Jess Winfield, one of the executive producers and writers of The Series, is really the only real connection between this anime and the original franchise, with him providing the voice of Jumba instead of David Ogden Stiers. Winfield would fully replace Stiers after the latter's death in 2018.
  • Real-Life Relative: In the dub, Yuna and Hiroman are voiced by real life siblings Eden Riegel and Sam Riegel.

  • Screwed by the Network: In the U.S., the show was taken off the air after only five episodes despite the whole show having been dubbed into English two years prior. Moreover, it lasted less than a week on the air over there before Disney pulled the plug.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • In the original Japanese version:
      • Stitch and Yuna's father/Mr. Kamihara.
    • In the English dub:
      • Sparky and Felix.
      • Stitch, 627 and Cyber.
      • Marvin (Masa) and Ms. Kawasaki (Kawasaki-sensei).
      • Tigerlily (Zuruko) and Ted (Taka).
  • What Could Have Been: The second post-series special, Stitch! Perfect Memory (2015), was said to be part of a line of specials that actually started with Stitch and the Planet of Sand (2012) called Stitch! New Specials. However, there hasn't been a new special announced since, with the Chinese spin-off series Stitch & Ai having aired instead in 2017/2018.
