    52 Thoughts About "Lilo & Stitch" During Its 20th Anniversary

    Seriously, how old are these kids?

    Not to make anyone feel old, but Lilo & Stitch came out 20 years ago.

    I was 15 when it came out (because I'm old) and never got around to watching it (because I was ~too old~ for cartoons), but have always heard it was very good.

    The anniversary had me curious, though, so I decided to finally check it out. Here are all the thoughts I had while watching:

    1. I love when the production logo matches the movie.

    2. Monstrosity feels like a strong word...

    Gantu asking what is that monstrosity in Lilo and Stitch

    3. 626 kind of sounds like Stitch if you say it super fast? Is that how he gets his name?

    4. Why would you create something that's supposed to destroy literally everything?

    Jumba saying His only instinct: to destroy everything he touches.

    5. Okay, what does "meega, nala kweesta" mean, because these aliens look scandalized...

    6. "It is the flawed product of a deranged mind" lol same

    7. Why does this mean alien shark sound so familiar?

    8. Piglet??

    9. Hawai'i really can't catch a break — if it's not tourists it's aliens.

    10. I'm sorry, are these aliens responsible for mosquitos?? SHAME, SHAME, SHAME.

    11. Again, why do evil scientists always create monsters that are "unstoppable" or undefeatable? Do they really think they're immune from that?

    Jumba saying I designed this creature to be unstoppable.

    12. Can someone get this guy some SPF 1,000??

    13. Someone's definitely going to slip on that water Lilo tracked in.

    15. Do fish eat peanut butter?

    Lilo saying And today we were out of peanut butter!

    16. Okay, I can already see why Lilo and Stitch are going to get along.

    17. That doll isn't that scary, these girls are a bunch of wimps.

    18. Damn, Lilo's sister's a hot head too, lol.

    19. Omg Tia Carrere is the voice of Nani?? 😍

    20. This guy isn’t really a social worker, is he?

    21. This movie is hilarious.

    22. How old is Lilo? I can never tell how old anyone is.

    23. In what world is this a falling star???

    24. I feel like Stich and Zim would either be best friends or mortal enemies.

    25. If they thought Stitch was dead why did they put him in the kennel with a bunch of not-dead dogs??

    Animal shelter employee saying We thought it was dead — it was hit by a truck!

    26. Again with the mosquitoes!!!

    Pleakley saying That girl is part of the mosquito food chain!

    27. "We have to blend in" please tell me we see these two jokers trying to "blend in" with the human population.

    Pleakley saying we have to blend in

    28. Amazing.

    29. I don't know why but something about live-action movies and shows on television sets in animation is very pleasing to me.

    38. It's a comedy again.

    39. Okay, first of all, why does he care how Stitch acts, and second of all, how does anyone think Stitch is a dog??

    Mr Bubbles saying Next time I see this dog, I expect it to be a model citizen.

    40. 😭😭😭

    41. Even if they didn't know he can't swim this feels like a bad idea.

    42. Okay, Nani needs to chill.

    43. Does Bubbles not have any other cases??

    44. Why would Pleakley be sent to prison??

    Alien saying Consider yourselves fired and prison-bound.

    45. Nani, you fool!

    Nani saying to Lilo I need you to stay here for a few minutes. I’m gonna be right back. Lock the door and don’t answer it for anyone.

    46. Something tells me Mr. Bubbles will not be happy Nani and Lilo's house has been blown up.

    47. Seriously, Pleakley??

    Pleakley saying Look at the bright side. You won’t have to yell at anyone anymore!

    48. Is this guy ever going to get to eat his ice cream??

    49. Aww, he saved the frog.

    50. What is Mr. Bubbles doing here??

    53. Okay, the closing credits were A+ but I'm still annoyed we never got to see sunburn man finally eat his ice cream.
