  • The main experiment metioned was experiment 604

    Stitch and Pleakley get hired to do a magic show at Mertle's half-birthday party. But because their act is horrible, Lilo secretly activates an experiment that turns things invisible to help make the show a success. It is, and Mertle's Hollywood producer Aunt hires them to do their trick on live TV. But when Houdini runs away and leaves Stitch invisible, Lilo will have to find them both before her ʻ ohana looks like frauds.

  • It was great it was fun Houdini again is cute!!!

    It was great it was fun Houdini again is cute!!! Well I wasn't able really to watch the entire episode in a full attention because of too many great shows in t.v. well actually some are not really shows (namely a video of Carrie Underwood and WWE) well Houdini was cute he becomes invisible he is shy and that is cool and fun!!!

    A fun episode that is why I am liking this!!moreless
  • Using a failed experiment isn't a good idea.

    An episode riddled with strange mistakes, such as Jumba's voice change when he mentions Houdini's number, and Gantu's malfunctioning heat goggles.

    Nevertheless, some of it is well written. There are good jokes and it seemed to fit together very well when everything rounded off at the end.

    Houdini almost counts as a failed experiment though, since he's so scared and shy. It's a twist, sure, but he must be awfully scared now if his true place is on a TV show.

    I kinda wanted to see then saw Pleakley in half. Because we all know Stitch's magic isn't any good, so maybe he would have got it wrong. That would have been fun.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • While Gantu was wearing his heat vision goggles we don't see Houdini's silhouette through the goggles from Gantu's eyes. The only thing we see of Houdini was his blinking even though we are seeing what Gantu was seeing through the goggles. [Gantu was wearing goggles that could see heat, (since Houdini can make himself disappear and he's invisible when he's making himself disappear) when we saw through them we could see Houdini's silhouette colored red. After 625 called Gantu, Houdini was making trees disappear but we are seeing through the goggles is nothing, even though Houdini is in front of Gantu's eyes. The only thing we are seeing of Houdini is a star shape of when he's blinking his eyes to make trees disappear. Later on we see Houdini's silhouette again through Gantu's eyes. (We see what Gantu sees when he's wearing the goggles to find out where houdini is.)]

    • Jumba's voice changes twice in this episode, First when he is showing Lilo X604 and again when he asks if she found 604.

    • Mertle's aunt calls her Mildred instead of Mertle, though this may be that she doesn't remember her name.

    • B: Miscellaneous Notes

      --> Stitch's magician name is: The Stupendious Stitch!
      -->While at the store, 625 found an experiment pod. He brings it back and gives it to Gantu. Gantu reads the number on the pod as 611. And informs Hamsterveil that he has found the ultimate weapon experiment. (Note: Turns out to be 119. Gantu read it upside down)
      NOTE: Fudgy was incorrectly labeld 119, his real number is 054.

      --> It is Mertle's 1/2 birthday. That means this episode takes place 6 months before (or after) Holio

      --> Gantu's Ring tone is "This Old Man" an old nursery rhyme. (Edit: Ever wonder how a galactic comunicator/phone has an earth based nursery rhyme as a ringtone option? )

      --> Jumba has eight more inactive experiment pods on his desk.
      --> Now we know where Mertle gets her attitude: Her aunt.
