    In this episode, experiment 300 "Spooky" is activated. He has the ability to transform into people's (and alien's) worst fears. To top it off, it is Halloween. Everybody, except Nani, dresses up. Spooky has taken up residence in a creepy old house on a hill. Lilo, Stitch, Jumba, and Pleakly go to the old creepy house to find and capture Spooky. After they enter the house, he starts using his ability. He changes into Pleakly's mom to make him feel guilty. Then Jumba sees him and he changes into Jumba's ex-wife and torments him as well. Then when he runs into Lilo and Stitch he...moreless

  • Halloween in Kokoua Town ^_^.

    9.2
    Ah the Halloween episode, each show usually has one and L&S is no different. But creatively combining the subject of "conquering your fears" with it though make this one stand out a bit more from the rest. Premise: Halloween has come to Kokoua Town and our favorite ohana is celebrating it as well. But an experiment that exploits fear is causing panic over the town. Can Lilo and Stitch overcome their innermost fears to capture it?



    While nothing special, I had to give prompts to Spooky. His powers were animated perfectly (love the way he scared Mertle and company) while also reviling what each character was afraid of (nice touch with Nani), plus also giving L&S a run for their money. Even nearly killed Stitch in one part. The overcoming the fear part was rather predictable and dare I say, a little corny but still sweet in itself though the climax more then made up for it. Never would've pegged Lilo a clown fearer though, huh.



    Also minor gripe, what was wrong with Lilo's first costume? Didn't seem all THAT extreme. Sheesh Moses just loves getting on Lilo's case doesn't he =P? Eh oh well it gave a nice lead in for the experiment hunt anyway (and probably a slight jab at Disney's Princesses).



    In any case love it or hate it, I say this was a fun holiday episode with our favorite Hawaiian duo.moreless

    one of the best where spooky shows you your greatest fears. love the ex wife of jumba we all have that fear in our hearts. pleakly is his mother. and lilo is going with cora bubbles the social worker. everyone has fears and spooky brings them out. he should work at the haunted house and then bring out there fears for money.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (12)

    • When Jumba is scratching his first costume, his belly pops out with his belly button showing, but when he changes into his shirt, it is removed.

    • Pleakley's mother is voiced by fellow Kids in the Hall veteran Scott Thompson. The Kids in the Hall were notable for playing cross gender roles, so Thompson's appearance as a female character is not only not surprising, but highly appropriate. He reprised the role in Episode 13 "Fibber".

    • Gantu and 625 do not appear in this episode!

    • In Spring 2004, Disney Channel ran a 'Fan-tastic Marathon' to find out the Top 10 fan-favorite experiments. 'Experiment 300: Spooky' was #4 on the Top 10 list.

    • When Nani answers the door to find Cobra Bubbles (Spooky cloaked as her worst fear), she is barefoot. When Lilo jumps the imposter Cobra and Nani is trying to pull her off, Nani is suddenly wearing her sandals. After Nani pulls Lilo off and they land on the couch, Nani loses her sandals again.

    • Lilo's princess costume is pink. But, once she gets inside the haunted house, it changes to blue.

    • Lilo drags Stitch into the haunted house. If he is so strong, she shouldn't be able to do that.

    • Stitch is an odd shade of blue in this episode. However, this could be because it is suppose to be dark.

    • From the episode you'd think this is Stitch, Jumba, and Pleakley's first Halloween. However if you saw the end of the first movie you'd see Lilo and Stitch celebrating Halloween.

    • When Lilo is hanging from the beam, you can hear Jumba and Pleakley's voices inside but in the next scene, they walk in through the front door.

    • In the scene where Spooky turns into water, you can see Stitch momentarily floating to get up on the stove. Stitch is not supposed to float.

    • Lilo says that Hallowe'en is a federal holiday. However, Hallowe'en is not a national federal holiday, but a religious holiday for Wiccans. It is also a Celtic holiday.

    • B: Miscellaneous Notes

      --> Jumba's ex-wife says to him "...until you are getting real job...." Hearing this dialogue, we can infer that genetic engineering is a science that either, pays low on planet Kweltekwan, is very outdated, or not well appreciated.

      --> We learn Nani is afraid of Lilo being taken away, Jumba is afraid of his ex-wife, and Pleakley is afraid of his mother.

      --> We learn Lilo is afraid of broccoli, clowns, and the scary house on the hill

      --> The song Lilo and Stitch sing to cure their fear is the song Nani sung to Lilo in Lilo and Stitch, in the hammock

      --> This episode, along with Holio, marks the first appearance of the series on the Disney Channel
