  • Cute characters that is what I can say!!!

    Well we can't deny that most of the characters in Lilo & Stitch are cute. I mean everybody was cute Lilo, Stitch, Jumba, Pleakley etc. even Richter he is cute the language was cute I like the ball part it was fun Stitch and Richter appeared to be cute!!! I am honestly enough to say this!
  • Shake, Rattle, Richter!

    This episode was super! It was smashing! Richter being an earthquake maker was just astounding! With he having a body of a dinosaur, (which I think was cool!) Richter has got to be one of the most beloved experiments in the series. This has to be one of the best episodes in the series! This episode may have been a little destructive at first, but there\'s a lesson here. Two actually. One is always take good care of your prized posssessions. Like Stitch, when he took care of his orange ball, and called it a \'bujee bu\' (that was a very confusing part in the episode). The second lesson was that you need to have a little faith in people, and mabye they can suprise you.

  • Adorable!

    This episode was one of the episode's best. It showed Stitch being something other than reckless and showed him caring about someone else (giving up his ball to his cousin). I love how Pleakly kept freaking out and screaming after he kept telling everyone to not panic. I like how Jumba always keeps his cool though.
  • As an experiment, Richter is great. But they're pushing the morals a bit too hard.

    Experiment 513, Richter, is everything I like to see in an experiment. His primary function is sound, and even better - it's evil. And his design follows suit, you can see how he's built for making earthquakes but his sturdy structure would help him survive one.

    The storyline here is play too, although to an adult, it seems a bit formulated. Stitch breaks things, as usual, and has to learn how to take care of things he likes. And he ends up latching onto an orange ball for some reason. Although it does show Stitch's determination to learn how to be good, and there was a great alien dialogue section, the intense 'lesson learned from this week's episode' may be too much for older fans.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

    • At one point, Stitch has the knapsack he lost outside the cave.

      Lilo & Stitch are in the cave. The ground shakes and they fall. When they fall, Stitch has his knapsack. The artists probably used the same sketches from when L&S fell outside the cave and only changed the background.

    • The grey dot on the citrus ball constantly changed size during the whole episode.

    • When Jumba fell over during one of the quakes, the soles of his feet are a darker color. Then suddenly they become a lighter color.

    • Jumba calls Richter experiment 5-13 when he always refers to them by their 3 numbers. He also calls Stitch by his name and not 6-2-6. Jumba NEVER calls Stitch anything other than 6-2-6.

    • In the part where Stitch says ''cousin'' in Gantu's ship, if you look at the inside of his mouth, it's orange instead of pink.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Lilo: Sometimes I get real embarrassed for him.

    • Lilo: You were telling us not to panic and you started panicking.

    • Lilo: Jumba said don't let him get underground, right?
      Stitch: Nala queesta.

    • Stitch: Wah! Dakka meega queesta!
      Jumba: What's wrong with 6-2-6?
      Lilo: He's sad because 513 took his orange ball.

    • Gantu: 625 turn that thing off. I'm trying to get this communication relay online & you're not helping!
      625: Oh, what's the matter can't handle plugging in wires by yourself? At least I'll be ready in case of a sandwich shortage.
      Gantu: Shortage?
      : Boo-doo-boop-boo-ba-doop. News flash from the crab nebula space whale, there was a quake today. I'm not taking chances I'm stocking up.

    • Stitch: Ih. If you do that. Bebu.
      Jumba: Ah. 6-2-6 has offered a deal. If 5-13 proves he can take care of things by fixing crack in planet, Stitch will give him precious citrus ball.
      Pleakley: Stitch's language is very efficient.

    • Gantu: I hate my life.
