Lilo & Stitch

Trivia: In the scene showing Nani's room, there's a quite faint Mulan poster on the wall.

Trivia: During Stitch's destroying rampage, he breaks a drawing by Lilo and she claims that it belonged to her "Blue period", an obvious reference to the painter Pablo Picasso.

Trivia: In the film, watch carefully in the scene where Lilo is teaching Stitch how to dance at the outdoor market. Above them, formed by some sort of Hawaiian Melons, is a Hidden Mickey.

Trivia: When Nani is looking through the book of different kinds of dogs, watch closely. One of the pages has Lafayette, one of the dogs in the Aristocats.

Trivia: The number A113 appears three times in this movie. First, when Stitch has recreated San Francisco, it is on a license plate. The second is the license plate of the gas truck Stitch drives at the end of the movie. The third time is the fire truck at the end of the movie that goes to Nani's house. A113 is often seen in animated movies as a reference to the classroom number used by graphic design and character animation students at the California Institute of the Arts.

Trivia: Stitch translation: EL KI-YO-TAY="Good idea." It refers to El Coyote, one of the producers' favorite restaurants.

Trivia: The same art designer for Lilo & Stitch did the art for Mulan. He was so inspired by the Japanese animator Miyazaki that he put a little nod to him. Nani goes to 'Kiki's Coffee Hut' to look for a job, and that name alone is a nod to 'Kiki's Delivery Service' that Miyazaki did.

Trivia: When Lilo shows Stitch her room for the first time, there is a photo of Mickey Mouse on the wall.

Trivia: When Stitch is destroying everything in Lilo's room, as he rips the paper on the easel, you can see a Dumbo figurine sitting on the ledge.

Trivia: The Summer 2002 issue of Disney News advised readers to watch for references in "Lilo" to "Mulan," Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida's first feature film. I found two: A poster in the dog pound urging people to adopt a dog features a boy hugging Little Brother, Mulan's dog. Later, in a shot of a Hawaii street, one restaurant's name read "Mulan Wok".

Trivia: Pixar's Luxo ball is seen on a stool near the butcher block table in the kitchen.

Trivia: In a close-up of Nani's room, you can see a red Mulan poster behind her bed.

Trivia: Stitch was originally not supposed to talk, but when the filmmakers realised the story hinged on to his being able to express himself at the film's end, they began developing his voice.

Trivia: On the street while Lilo and Stich are eating ice cream, there is a postcard with the name Orlando and the Disney castle located in Disney world.


Trivia: When Lilo and her sister are looking at the spaceship going down, Dumbo can be seen.


Trivia: At the beginning, Stich makes a D with the saliva which matches the D from the Disney logo.


Continuity mistake: When Lilo brings Stitch out to present him to Nani, in the Aloha dog home, the woman grabs Stitch while Nani backs away, holding Lilo. Stitch then walks over to Lilo, with the woman holding onto him, and the wooden door on the counter is wide open. However two shots later you can see in the background that the door is now down and closed. (00:23:35)

Lilo: It's sandwich day. Every Thursday I give Pudge the Fish a peanut butter sandwich. But, today we were out of peanut butter. I asked my sister what to give him and she said a tuna sandwich. I can't give Pudge tuna! Do you know what tuna is? IT'S FISH! If I gave Pudge tuna, I'd be an abomination! I'm late because I had to go to the store and get peanut butter cause all we have Stinking tuna...Pudge controls the weather.

More quotes from Lilo & Stitch

Question: In the scene where Nani is pulling nails out of the door frame because Lilo wants to be alone and Mr. Bubbles arrives, when Nani goes around the back (smashing a window and turning off Lilo's music) is Nani opening the presumably nailed shut door to let Mr. Bubbles in that he later yanks open and all the nails fall?

Answer: No she opens the back door for Mr. Bubbles - you see him later open the front door that is still nailed shut.
