Took my kidlet to see Lilo & Stitch this past weekend, so I thought I'd put up a little mini-review. Very good movie, and surprisingly subversive, coming from Disney. Yes, it's a family-supportive movie, but not in an Ozzie and Harriet way. Its message is more of a "family is the people you care about and who care about you," and not some semi-artificial construct with 2.4 kids and a dog. The movie is inventive, funny as all get out, and touching in non-saccharine ways. It can be a bit intense at times, but my 5-year-old was never once scared.

I hope Disney continues like this, with more original ideas and not rehashings of somebody else's tale. Alas, their next offering is a sci-fi twist on Treasure Island called -- wait for it -- "Treasure Planet." Oh well.

just out of curiosity, is "punch buggy" a regional term. up here in the Pacific NW we call is by its proper name "slug bug". not only does it rhyme, but it is more correct to call a VW Beetle a bug as opposed to a buggy. A buggy is something you'd see in the desert. It bears no resemblance to a VW beetle.

VW Bug http://www.victoriavw.com/bugpics.htm

I just don't get it I guess. Perhaps someone couldn't remember the term slug bug and punch buggy sounded good to them...........Z

Just leave it to Zoro to go completely off topic. I don't know how he does it but I don't see how it happened to get frome Lilo and stitch to Slug Bugs. I am pacific NW as well. I don't know I think that many southerers do call them Punch Buggies and I have no Idea why. I too notice this whenever I go to Texas.

Oops forgot to put in what I wanted to say in the first place. I liked Aladin and Beuty and the Beaste as well. Although neither of them follow the original story I still found them entertaining. I liked Monsters Inc as well. No strike that I loved that movie.

if you had the displeasure of watching lilo and stitch previews, let alone the whole movie, you'd have run across a part in the movie where stitch refers to a blue beetle as a "punch buggy." I was just curious where the term originated is all ...........Z

MacGenius, you were right and wrong. Monsters, Inc. was made by Pixar AND Disney.

"Slug Bug" or "Punch Buggy" was a road trip game, where upon seeing one of the old VW bugs one child in the back seat would slug the other. Fortunately the back seat of a volkswagen did not allow for a full swing, but between my sister and I we created bruises on each other.

I remember 'Punch Buggy'! I suspect my brother used to invent Beetles that weren't there - then he'd punch me in the eye so I couldn't contest it. Ah, those were the days...

My two cents about the aforementioned movie which I have not seen are:
LILO is a bootloader, not a cartoon character!

Sorry, that's been eating me up inside for a bit.

I understood that part, I used to play all the time. I was just wondering if "punch buggy" was only used in certain geographical locations and where did it originate. I spent the first 28 years of My life calling it "slug bug" and hadn't heard it called " punch buggy" until I saw lilo and stitch". any ideas?..........Z

My thoughts exactly! Good thing they didn't call it "Lilo and Grub", no?
