  • Experiment 586 gets loose he looks like a bulldog and he eats metal.Meanwhile while tank is on a rampage Lilo is at the festival with Mertle's friends, and Stitch is left all alone and has to catch the experiment by himself.Can he do it?moreless

    I don't know why but I just didn't like this episode. I almost fell asleep(maybe I was just tired, oh well). I'm not sure what they could have dome to make it better but I think they probably could have thought of something.Oh yeah back to the experiment. 586 easts metal he looks like an orange bulldog-like-experiment with an armoured covered body who eats metal and each time he does he grows. I haven't seen the Snafu episode (But I really, really want to!) but I read that between the "Tank" episode and the "Snafu" episode Tank shrinks making some people believe that after a while he shrinks back to normal size. Tank's home is not known yet. Tank did get caught by Gantu but was rescued in the snafu episode. It's rumoured that tank's home is a garbage place.moreless
  • another myrtle and fake friends ignore youre bestest friend episode? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    well lilo get's a shot at being friends with the characteristicless yeaaaaah! girls and blows it a bit by ignoring stitch well at least we get to see that the annoying girls actually arent simply one phrase characters

    and it turns out they dont really l;ike myrtle (not that big a surprise)

    anyway tank just eats metal and gets bigger ad gantu eventually gets the experiment and it isnt rescued until snafu wich was building up a stupid storyline....

    the singer was annoying....

  • Nalulungkot ako! I'm becoming sad!

    Nalulungkot ako!

    I'm becoming sad!

    Tignan niyo naman ang lungkot ng episode na ito kinuha nanaman siya ni Gantu ang lungkot no!


    Look at it this episode is very sad Gantu got the experiment again how sad right?

    Stitch is cute stitch and lilo cute lilo cute lilo cute lilo cute

    I want you to learn a little Filipino!
  • Some things are completely pointless.

    An experiment that eats metal and gets bigger? For one thing, Jumba would have to be really careful to send it to a planet with enough metal lying around. Plus, why not just make a huge experiment to begin with?

    Although seeing Mertle team up with Stitch is probably the biggest attraction point, it falls prey to the old 'at the end, everything goes back to normal' routine. Lilo doesn't seem to have made any progress making friends, even though the girls liked her and spent time with her during the episode. But when they go straight back to Mertle and act like it never happened, the girls feel more like cardboard cut-outs than real people. Not that they can be real people when all they ever say is "Yeeeeeaaaaaah".

    If they were going to have "Wierd Al" in an episode, they could have given him a less irritating part.moreless

      Tra la la, we got a pass of gold
      To lead us into times of old
      Pray there the minstrel be your guide
      Come see what treasures wait inside

      The Little lass she had a hound
      Twas not allowed upon the ground
      Of this wondrous festival most merry

      But good, Sir Stitch he let her go
      Though clearly he was dealt a blow
      A blow most painful and sad
      He felt dreadful, awful, and bad

      Beware my ladies of the beast
      Who's come to spoil the royal feast
      Tra la la la la la la la
      Tra la la la la la

      The little lass was all alone
      Upon her wretched royal throne
      Not one single friend to help her

      Sir Stitch he flew the deadly beast
      Hazzah! Sir Stitch, hazzah!
      Though oddly shaped and very small
      Sir Stitch did not ignore the call
      Tra la la la la, la la la la la
      Tra la la la la la la la
      Tra la la la la la la la
      Tra la la la la la la, hey!

      Oh woe to all in west or east
      Sir Stitch has failed to slay the beast
      He's blundered, floundered, faltered, flopped
      His incompetence shan't be topped-

      Character Nicknames


    • The Blob (1958 and 1988)

      The featured experiment grows larger each and every time it eats metal, just like how the Blob would grow larger each time it would eat someone.

    • Tank's experiment number, '586', sounds like a spoof of the old '6 afraid of 7 because 7 8 (ate) 9' joke.
