  • By far the worst Lilo & Stitch episode! The series Recess obviously reminds us adults why we actually like Kim Possible and Lilo & Stitch... because they are cleverly made and fun to watch.moreless

    Recess on the other hand is the mindless kiddie drivel an adult will zap past as quickly as possible. The appearance of the challenged Recess kids, totally spoiled an otherwise nice episode. The smartie-pants kids make even the first viewing painfully annoying. What makes things worse is the fact that these characters add *nothing* to the story.

    To the Disney authors: The Kim Possible crossover was OK. But never ever add weak characters to a otherwise great series like Lilo & Stitch. And do not try any crossovers with the Kim Possible series either! There is a reason why people watch a certain show - like, because they do *not* want to see other shows at that time, dohh!

    One would think that the lesson was learned with Scooby Doo: There you could tell the series was going down the drain, once the \"special guests\" started appearing.

    A very disappointed Lilo & Stitch fan.moreless
  • It was okay...

    Except like another reviewer said, the Recess Kids added nothing to the story. They were just there for the sake of being there. What class takes kids on expensive field trips to Hawaii and only brings 6 students, anyway? I don't know who was playing Mikey, but he sounded out of it. He didn't seem to care and the voice didn't work for him either. Also, this was missing the wit and charm that Recess usually gives us. I normally laugh when watching Recess as it's a brilliant satire of elementary school life, however, no scenes involving the Recess kids made me laugh.

    The good: I guess I'm just a sucker for crossovers. Also, the plot was alright. It does teach a good lesson about turning hard work into a game. Also, the thing about the Gerble-shaped satellite was pure win.

    Overall, it's an okay episode. I can't help but feel the people who loved this episode are just fans of Recess who think any crossover with them HAS to be good. However, I didn't hate this episode. I just didn't really like it. It was "meh" to me.moreless
  • To me, this is the best episode i've ever seen.

    To me, this is the best episode i've ever seen. This is a crossover with the Recess gang, they team up with Lilo in this episode and Stitch is being lazy (on vacation or whatever.) But Stitch is being so cute in this episode and I can't get enough with him. Anyway when all the others are on vaction, Grechen got zapped but she likes to work because she thinks it's fun and I thought "why is she thinking of that". And by the way I didn't know that machines can go on vacation. This is a really good episode.moreless
  • I would have to disagree with others I loved it and I really liked this episode thank you!!!

    I would have to disagree with others I loved it and I really liked this episode thank you!!! Good thing I finally watched this I am just grateful and anyway I don\'t really like the look of Lax but it was a great episode Stitch is still cute a lot were cute all were awesome!!!
  • Noooooo Uuuuuuurghhh! *hits writers head* This review may be a rant.

    And yet again disney makes a story that technically makes no sense a has a lousy plot with crossing over cartoons.

    i didnt like seeig reccess on this episode at all it makes everything like a crappy parody show since the drawing styles dont match and allways lilo and stitch happen to run into the reccess gang and theyre excuse for being there was "a feild trip to the observatory" O.o since when do elementary schools have expensive "feild trips" to hawwai with a small percentage of he class?.

    it made no sense also hamsterviel apparently had a gerbil sattelite for tracking experiments installed in earth's orbit 'now how did he get that built?' it was funny the written rant of hamsterviel's on the sattelite that mentions that it's hamster shaped not gerbil shaped.

    i hate these stupid crossover epispdes disney has a show to crossover shows without ruining them it's called house of mouse, ugh!.

    this deserves minimal score from me because of the crossover.moreless
