Stitch!

Set after the events of Leroy and Stitch,* Stitch steals one of Jumba's scooters and makes his way back to Earth, crashing on the small Izayoi Island in the Japanese Ryukyu Islands. There Stitch meets Yuna, a girl who father is away as a marine biologist, and learns about the Spiritual Stone, which will grant a wish to anyone who can perform 43 selfless good deeds (without doing anything selfish, which counts against the total). With the help of a counter created by Jumba - ordered to watch Stitch by the Grand Council with Pleakley - Stitch tries his best to accomplish the number of needed deeds.

animated series Stitch! © Disney / Madhouse Productions / Dr. Movie / Tezuka Productions*The series is a stand-alone, Japanese spin-off, set in an alternative continuity than the USA-made Films, DTVs and TV series. The English dub, however, makes an attempt to connect it to the series' western cannon.

While Lilo is mentioned in the English dub, no mention of her is apparently made in the original Japanese version. Nonetheless, a grown-up Lilo appears in episode 21 of the third series, with a daughter that looks exactly like she does in the original films.

Only five episodes where shown in the States, when it was taken off for unknown reasons. Currently airs in the UK on Disney's premium Sky channel Disney Cinematic.
