  • Lilo and Stich is a really great series, but this episode wasn't as great because of the unoriginality of the plot.

    ShortStuff wasnt one of the worst episodes, but it wasnt even up to the standards of being a good episode either.

    The first mistake started when Stitch feels vulnerable because he's too small and wants to be taller, thinking taller is better. i would have liked for the story to have changed to something to be more like Gantu thinks hes too big and must shrink in order to get the experiment and in the end thinks he was alright would make an interesting story.

    However, the episode also had some good points, such as Pleakley acting as an evil scientist and also mentioning his years in the Galatic Federation. 625 was also potrayed quite well that even despite being a lousy-shooter, he got his plush toys. The ending was abit cruel, but decent. I would have liked for 625 to at least be shrunk back to normal size.

    And ShortStuff was alright but I felt he was a menace and should at least have had another purpose, to destroy hacking software, but that would be kinda unrealistic because Hawaii has hardly any technology.

    Overall, it was an alright episode but the major flaw was the unoriginality of small wanting to be big and later thinking small is better.moreless
  • Kinda sad for me!

    Malungkot ito para sa akin kasi hindi napaliit si "Short Stuff". Cute pa naman din siya pag maliit liit niya no!


    This episode is a sad one because Short Stuff didn't become small again. He's cute if he's small, he's small right?

    Sorry about the Filipino language well I just want to!

    • Steve Martin

      When Pleakley attempts to shrink a giant Stitch back to size, one of his quotes is "Let's get small", a reference to one of Steve Martin's first stage acts.
