158 Finder

Finder, A.K.A. Experiment 158, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba. He is designed to sniff out and uncover any lost or missing person or item, emitting a honk when he succeeds. His one true place is operating a "Lost and Found" service at the beach. He is voiced by Frank Welker.

He was first used by Lilo for show-and-tell at her hula school. He later tracked down an escaped Hämsterviel after the Grand Councilwoman's report. He was in the rescue party for "Snafu".


Finder is a very beneficial and resourceful tracker who has a knack for uncovering any missing person or thing. Unlike most experiments, Finder does not cause chaos or mischief with his powers. However, he is a bit competitive as shown when he and Stitch argued over which direction to go while attempting to track down an escaped Hämsterviel. Aside from this, Finder appears to be very calm and collected when finding lost individuals or items.


Finder is a red aardvark/shrew-like experiment with little arms and legs, a small, stumpy tail, a long snout, a little mouth, black eyes and large rabbit-like ears. He stands about the same height as Stitch and weighs lighter than the latter.

Special Abilities

Finder can quickly track down any missing person or thing by using his elongated snout and sense of smell. He can also spin his ears like helicopter blades, allowing him to fly to the detected missing object or individual. Upon success, he will honk like a party blower.


Finder is virtually harmless.



  • Finder is Experiment 158. However, in his debut, he is called 458, most likely due to Jumba's untidy database, but in "Skip", he is correctly referred to as 158.
    • If Finder maintained the number he was originally referred to as canon, he would have been the only 4-series experiment to have been featured in Lilo & Stitch: The Series.
  • Finder's left ear is inconsistent in his appearances. While he is portrayed as having a notch on the outer rim of his upper right ear (similar to Stitch), his left ear is drawn either with or without a notch around the same relative spot between scenes.
  • Finder's pod color is purple.
  • Finder is described by the experiment computer screen as, "Experiment 158. Primary function: Finds lost things".
  • Finder's ears appear in the online game Jumba's Lab.
