Recently on one of the boards I frequent someone posted a link to this anime episode, as this board loves all things Disney. So clearly I needed to watch this episode too, despite the fact that I have never seen this series. I do love Stitch though.
This show SEEMS to take place in the same universe as the original Stitch series with some slight differences. But Hamsterviel is still around and random experiments are threatening Stitch's happiness.
The biggest change though is Stitch's family. After a little back reading I have found out that Lilo went off to college and was late meeting Stitch one day. So he went to space to pout for a few years and came back to Earth to find a Lilo look alike. Meet YUNA! Apparently Lilo and Stitch make up in a later episode but isn't that so sad?!?!!
So as the longest title in history hints at...DISNEY! Yuna and family live in Japan, on one of the tinier islands. Her father gifts her with tickets to Tokyo Disneyland but can't make it til later. For some reason all the people Yuno knows, the ugly mean girl and the cute best friend, all go to Tokyo Disneyland too. I have no idea. XD
Jumba and Pleakley didn't receive tickets to Disneyland but decide they need to go to protect Stitch. Pleakley's Japanese voice is FABUlous!!!!!
So Stitch and Yuna go to the airport together but Stitch is being Stitchy. He fools around and gets in trouble with airport security and manages to fall off the plane. Yuna is sad...but pulls through to have a fabulous and line free day at Tokyo Disneyland. Time for hats!!!
No trip to Tokyo Disneyland is complete without a popcorn bucket. Unless your husband hates popcorn. XD I love this episode, so many classic moments to go AWWW I do that too. Take note that while everyone does these things at Disney you can go too far. See how the UGLY enemy friend is so uncool?
Stitch didn't make the flight. So sad. He decides to hop in his spaceship and travel to the mainland himself. Now for those who have not been to Tokyo Disneyland their version of the Tiki Room stars Stitch. Outside the Tiki Room itself is Stitch's spaceship all crashed up. So guess where Stitch crashed in this episode? XD
Also just like the real Tiki Room Stitch gets paint prints all over the place. I am not sure why Stitch had paint buckets in the back of his spaceship but he did.
After Stitch crashes he spends a great deal of time looking for Yuna. Whom is going through the entire park at the speed of fast. On this ride and in the next scene is across the park. It was fun, knowing that this was all impossible but knew they were trying to hit up every major Disney attraction.
Hamsterviel, Gantu, and Reuben have decided that this will be the day to capture Stitch. They take along a few experiments and go to Disneyland with their amazing disguises. Reuben seems more content in making sammiches though.
At one point Stitch makes a mess (well he makes quite a few messes) and the baddies follow his popcorn trail. Only this is a Disney theme park so what happens at the speed of fast? INSTANT CLEAN!
And the cherry on the fast cake is the cute little water drawings some cast members make with their tiny brooms. So cute!
After a lot of drama Yuna and Stitch are finally reunited. Lilo....I MISS YOU! But Yuna actually has a body...and head.
The entire park turns against Stitch as Hamsterviel tells everyone that Stitch messed up the park. Which is actually TRUE! Then there is some weird music that further brainwashes people for some reason. Also a flying dinosaur experiment!!
After Yuna and her friends are kidnapped Hamsterviel tells Stitch to get in the cookie making machine or he will KILL Yuna. Harsh. Stitch takes some time to eat a few cookies before dying.
Yuna's dad arrives at the park and pulls the cord on the cookie making machine. Then the ugly mean girl records Hamsterviel saying he tricked everyone. Which he didn't but since he is the baddie that is how it is. Everyone loves Stitch and all the baddies have to run away.
The episode ends with Yuna finally able to spend time with her dad at Tokyo Disneyland. They look at the fireworks and enjoy the magical moment that is Disneyland. They promise to come back again and it is a picture perfect moment. AHH! This episode brings back happy memories of many things I love. XD So...I just felt the random need to blog about it. Hope you enjoyed this randomness or the cuteness that is Disneyland, anime, and Stitch. XD Ohana means family...unless your name is Lilo!!! XD
