297 - Shortstuff

Shortstuff, A.K.A. Experiment 297, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba. He is designed to enter machinery and sabotage it from within using his claws. Due to him being accidentally enlarged, his one true place is as an amusement park ride. He is voiced by Nancy Cartwright.

He was activated when lemonade spilled and touched his pod. His size was greatly increased by accident, thanks to Jumba's growth ray.

Personality

Shortstuff is ill-tempered, reckless and clever. Armed with four claws and a very short temper, he is not exactly afraid to take on bigger opponents. He also seems to be quite tolerant of his enormous size after he was accidentally enlarged. As a giant, he was still able to wreak havoc and overpower an equally giant Stitch in battle. When Shortstuff got turned into a carnival ride after his defeat, he didn't seem to mind at all.

Appearance

Shortstuff is a small red-orange crab-like experiment with four claws, four legs, dark blue eyes, a thin mouth with a turquoise tongue and two small antennae on his head, able to swivel at the waist more than 360 degrees. He was originally the size of a crab, but was accidentally enlarged to twice the size of a house, and about 200 feet tall. He was also returned to his normal size.

Special Abilities

Shortstuff can sabotage machinery by entering and then cutting the mechanism and electrical wiring using his claws.

Weaknesses

When Shortstuff was exposed to Jumba's growth ray, his size was greatly increased by accident.

Stitch!

Shortstuff made an appearance in the Stitch! anime where Hämsterviel was going to unleash him on the island, but sent Wishy-Washy instead by accident. He was also returned to his normal size in this episode.

Trivia

  • The climactic battle between a giant Shortstuff and a giant Stitch is a reference to the Japanese film King Kong vs. Godzilla.
  • Shortstuff's manner of defeat is very similar to Part I of Gulliver's Travels.
  • Shortstuff's pod color is green.
  • Shortstuff is described by the experiment computer screen as, "Experiment 297 Primary function: Sabotage mechanical and electrical devices".
  • Oddly, when Shortstuff's image is reflected off of Stitch's eyes in The Origin of Stitch, he is facing directly at the screen instead of to his right.
