  • Well Gigi didn't show its function and she's weak because she's no. 007

    Well Gigi didn't show its function and she's weak because she's no. 007. Finally Mertle has an experiment well I guess she accepted it because it really looks like a dog and it did not disturb anyone Stitch is cuter than Gigi and Mertle is stupid because she didn't find the dark shades of Gigi which was actually a sign of it that it is an experiment!
  • Yapper or GiGi wasnt a nice episode.

    Yapper A.K.A. Gigi wasnt a very nice episode to Stitch.

    I think Nani was right when she told Lilo Mertle isnt her friend. I would have thought Nani would say SHE, Jumba and Pleakley are her friends other than Stitch. I think Mertle was very cruel, abit too mertle-ish.

    I would have been glad if Lilo didn't save Yapper. Mertle deserves to get bad treatment. Besides, if Mertle has the trophy and not the dog, no body will believe her.

    I do hope as how good Season 1 episodes were, there will be no episodes if i catch like "Amnesio", "Yapper", "Mr Stenchy" and more.moreless
  • Wait... it's an alien... that looks like a dog.

    One of the worst experiments ever. Jumba made an experiment that looks just like a dog? ...Right.

    Apart from that, Stitch does get to go to a proper city (Honolulu) and show that he can be good even though he should be out there wreaking havoc.

    Mertle manages to cheat during the dog show by giving Stitch coffee, making him uncontrolable. So the message seems to be that if you load your opponent with coffe, you can win.

    Although Mertle did give up her trophy for some reason. Maybe she felt indebted to Lilo because her 'dog' saved Gigi's life... but that seems un-Mertle-like.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Gigi is the first experiment seen that looks like a normal creature from Earth.

    • Hamsterville is constantly changing size. In the episode with finder, he looks to be about the size of a normal hamster. In the episode with Felix, when he sends Felix back, he looks the same size as Felix.

    • Didn't Lilo notice that the water bottle had changed from blue to red, and that the liquid she squirted into Stitch's mouth was brown, not clear?

    • Jumba did not recognize Gigi at first because of all the grooming Mertle did. It makes you think what she really looks like.

  • QUOTES (9)

  • NOTES (4)

    • Experiment 007 doesn't actually look the way Gigi looked in the episode. According to Jumba, she's been groomed beyond recognition!

      --> Lilo says that Stitch is a Blue-Furred Ectoplasmic Detection Dog and that the ancient Egyptians used to contact their mummy relatives in the underworld.

      --> First aired in UK: 28th October 2003

      This episode was called Yapper instead of Gigi so that people wouldn't know that Gigi was actually an experiment.

      Edit: The big eyes kinda make you suspect though.
