This article is about the television series. For the feature length film, see Lilo & Stitch
Continuing where Stitch! The Movie left off, Lilo and Stitch are given the task of collecting the rest of Jumba's missing experiments, changing them from bad to good, and finding the one place where they truly belong. Meanwhile, the former Captain Gantu and his reluctant partner, Experiment 625, try to capture the experiments for the imprisoned Dr. Hämsterviel.
Running for two seasons and a total of 65 episodes, the series (and the franchise) ended with the direct-to-DVD movie P Pals. The series had low quotes in the USA, but it was also a great hit in Europe. On May 29, 2007, Lilo and Stitch moved from its daily 12 p.m. time slot to its new daily time slot at 5 and 5:30 a.m.
The series has been officially released on DVD in Japan, and many fans have petitioned for the series to be released in all other parts of the world.

- Mertle Edmonds (voiced by Liliana Mumy)
- 624/Angel (voiced by Tara Strong)
- David Kawena (voiced by Jason Scott Lee and Dee Bradley Baker) — Nani's boyfriend. David is a great surfer. Like Nani, he also has trouble finding employment. He is also the only one of the four humans (the other three being Victoria, Cobra Bubbles, and later Mertle) aside from Lilo's family who is aware of the aliens and experiments.
- Yuki, Elena and Teresa — Mertle's possé consists of Yuki (voiced by Lili Ishida), Elena (voiced by Jillian Henry) and Teresa (voiced by Kali Whitehurst). They usually travel in a group and seldom say anything other than a sarcastic "Yeah!" in unison when agreeing with Mertle on something. They actually would like Lilo if Mertle didn't make them think they didn't.
- Grand Councilwoman (voiced by Zoe Caldwell) — the leader of the Galaxy's ruling Federation, she is the one who banished Stitch in the first movie. She later agrees to let Lilo and Stitch become official experiment hunters in order to retrieve all of the remaining experiments.
- Keoni Jameson (voiced by Shaun Fleming) — Keoni is a young, laid-back boy on whom Lilo has a crush. Lilo constantly tries to vie for his affections. He had a crush on Pleakley, whom he knows as Lilo's 'aunt', in the episode "Hunkahunka", but in "Nosy" he stated that he only had the crush for that one week. His father owns several businesses on Kauai. He has a friend who just happens to be a girl (not a girlfriend, though). This friend is first shown in "Hunkahunka" and later seen in "Morpholemew". He keeps Percy (Experiment 006) as a pet.
- Mr. Jameson — Mr. Jameson is the father of Keoni and, on several occasions, Nani's employer. He owns several businesses around Kauai, including the Birds of Paradise Hotel.
- Moses Puloki (voiced by Kunewa Mook) — the hula teacher of Lilo's school, where he teaches Lilo, Victoria, Mertle, Yuki, Elena and Teresa how to hula. He is very patient with his students and tolerates their antics. Lilo and her ex-friends often call Moses Kumu, Hawaiian for teacher.
- Victoria (voiced by Daveigh Chase and Alyson Stoner) — Lilo's new (human) best friend, whom she meets in the episode "Swapper". Throughout the episode, Lilo tries to prove to her she wasn't weird. But in the end, Victoria reveals she likes weird stuff so she and Lilo become best friends. Victoria is also in Lilo's Hula Class and owns Snooty (Experiment 277) as a pet. She appears in the episodes "Swapper", "Snooty," Slick", "Remmy", and "Wishy-Washy".
- Mrs. Hasagawa (voiced by Amy Hill) — The little old lady who owns the fruit stand. She is short and has glasses and grey hair. In episode #220, "Mrs. Hasagawa's Cats", she keeps many experiments, thinking that they are cats. It is not known if she, being the caretaker of several alien lifeforms, is under the official protection of the United Galactic Federation as Lilo and Nani are. The experiments are: 002-Doubledip, 004-Squawk, 031-Gotchu, 044-Forehead, 051-Hocker, 077-Zawp, 111-Mulch, 134-Shredder, 214-Pix, 288-Boomer, 358-Manners, 507-Woody, 521-Wrapper, 533-Blowhard, and 566-Derrick. In the episode with "Checkers" (#207), she is called a troublemaker. A Mrs. Hasagawa quote: "But you know what they say about happiness — it's like the Parubian Monkey flu... very contagious!" Stitch mispronounces her name as "Missus Hasagasawa." In the crossover with American Dragon: Jake Long, Lao Shi falls in love with her.
- Sunburned Ice Cream Tourist: (voiced by Frank Welker) This is a running gag throughout the Lilo & Stitch franchise. Whenever he appears, The Sunburned Ice Cream Tourist drops his ice cream (presumably a mint-flavored ice cream from its color) from its cone before he can finish it. The Sunburned Ice Cream Tourist never has a spoken part in the series except "Whoa!" when he tripped on the pod and when he said "Whaaaaa" after suffering from 151 (Babyfier)'s effects and we see his real eyes in Swirly.
Occasionally, cross-over episodes have appeared, featuring characters from other Disney shows. Some of these characters include:-
- Kim Possible, Ron Stoppable, Wade, Doctor Drakken, Shego and Rufus from the Disney series Kim Possible. Dr. Drakken kidnaps Stitch in order to clone him and deliver him to Dr. Hamsterviel. Jumba confuses Rufus with Experiment 607, which looks remarkably similar.
- Penny, Oscar, Trudy, BeBe, CeCe and Suga Mama Proud (and Puff the dog) - along with Wizard Kelly - from The Proud Family. In this episode, the Prouds are staying at Jumba and Pleakley's Bed and Not Breakfast on vacation. A rampaging experiment (Experiement 397 - 'Spats') causes numerous characters to argue constantly.
- T.J. Detweiler, Vince LaSalle, Ashley Spinelli, Gretchen Grundler, Mikey Blumberg, Gus Griswald and Miss Finster from Recess. In this episode the Recess children are accompanying Gretchen to Hawaii when they are attacked by Experiment 285 - 'Lax'. Miss Finster, supposedly looking after the children, spends her time in the hotel salon.
- Several cast members from American Dragon: Jake Long including Jake Long, Luong Lao Shi, Fu Dog, Trixie Carter and Arther "Spud" Spudinski. Jake is amongst a number of contestants in a skateboard competition - Lilo also takes part. Experiment 316 - Morpholemew - turns Lilo first into Keoni and then into Jake, after he is captured by Gantu (who thinks Jake is Experiment 316). Luong Lao Shi falls for Mrs. Hasagawa.
- Lilo & Stitch: The Series was originally going to be named "Stitch! The Series". This decision was later changed, resulting in the mismatched title of its pilot, Stitch! The Movie.
- In the episode "Finder" Lilo asks if Finder could find her Uncle Jimbo a possible reference to Jimbo Kern from South Park.
- In the episode "Babyfier", Lilo wants to see a movie called Sludge Mummies II: Attack of the Bones, which is a take-off on Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
- Tokyopop has published 3 Lilo and Stitch Cine-manga books: The Search Begins (with the episodes "Poxy" and "Spooky"), Sparring and Charring ("Kixx" and "Cannonball") and Contents Under Pressure ("Yin/Yang" and "Richter")
- Unlike the movies, Lilo often wears a green dress with flowers instead of the same design but red in the first season, though she wears the red one more often in the second season.
- Unlike other Disney Channel Original shows that premiere on Disney Channel then later come to ABC KIDS, Lilo and Stitch premiered on ABC and then came to Disney Channel as a marathon on Columbus Day 2003.
- Characters from Lilo & Stitch: The Series appeared in a parody of the "We're All In This Together" scene from High School Musical. The vignette appeared in the "High School Musical: Around the World" one-year anniversary special and can also be found on the "Deluxe Dance Edition" 2-disc DVD release of High School Musical 2.  
- Parody musician "Weird Al" Yankovic makes a guest appearance in "Tank" as a wandering minstrel.
- It is still being aired on Disney Channel Latin America from Monday to Friday on the animated block.
