  • cant exactly see the point of sprouts one true place it confused me as for the mailman well why did he have to have a chin?.

    i couldnt get my head around sprouts one true place and things

    stitch for this episode wants to join the cowboy rodeo and does a good job fighting sprout

    and pleakley grows a giant pineapple and it gets smashed he puts back together peice by peice and then it gets smashed again! XD

    also i wonder why that postman had to have a chin it was comically oversized and had a butt shape....
  • This episode is too normal for me!

    This episode is too normal for me! I didn't really feel like watching this one much cause it's so plain well it was kinda good too! Sprout is cute yes it is true! Well all I can say is that it is just a safe episode! It was fun too in anyway!
  • Stitch wants to be a cowboy? ...Since when?

    I'm all for seeing Stitch in a cowboy costume. But some of this episode seemed a little too surreal...

    The whole "One True Place" thing is stretched a bit far when Sprout is just left in an old water tower. He's not using his powers for good or doing anything useful. Heck, he didn't even seem to be turned good at all.

    And again we're slapped around the face with a 'Win fair and square' moral.

    But putting in music from Back To The Future is wonderful. I loved those films, and just the music in there jacks up the quality for the episode.moreless
  • Cool episode. . .

    This episode was one of the many that tought Lilo important lessons. . . It supplied many good laughs, like Lilo's 'penpal' and seeing Stitch in a cowboy outfi. . . . . . It really sowed how much the experiment pods varried in place. . . Sprout was found in a Post Office. . . Despite seeing all the experiments falling in one place in the movie we got to see more areas that the did end up. . .moreless
