Stitch was an alien created by Dr. Jumba Jookiba and Dr. Rupert Jacques von Hämsterviel. This extremely strong alien breaks out of a banished asteroid and travels to Earth. The Grand Councilwoman then orders Jumba and Agent Pleakley, a member of the Galactic Federation and an expert on Earth to go retrieve Stitch before he can cause any havoc. Stitch, now on Earth, gets adopted by a girl named Lilo who believes Stitch is a dog. Lilo tries to rid Stitch of his bad behavior and over time, a friendship grows. Stitch is then allowed to stay with Lilo after all of Jumba and Hämsterviel's other experiments get loose. The Grand Councilwoman allows this and Stitch and Lilo on a quest to find all of the other 625 experiments and find their one true place with the aid of Pleakly and Jumba who remain on Earth.
