The experiments, also referred to as Stitch's cousins, are genetically engineered creatures created by Dr. Jumba Jookiba in his lab at "Galaxy Defense Industries", with the assistance of Dr. Jacques von Hämsterviel who funded the projects with "shady" business deals.
Every experiment created was dehydrated into a small orb called an "experiment pod" and stored in a special container for transport. In Stitch! The Movie, the container was accidentally opened and the pods rained down on the island of Kauai. The experiments within the pods are reactivated upon contact with any liqud substance, a point of concern because many of the experiments are dangerous and Kauai hosts one of the wettest spots on Earth.
Upon encountering each experiment, Lilo gives the experiment a name just as she gave Stitch his name. The two then attempt to rehabilitate the experiments (Depending on behaver) and find a purpose for them on Earth that suits their specific abilities, referred to as the "one true place" they belong.
Stitch, inspired by Hawaiian terminology, refers to the other experiments as his "cousins" and considers them all a part of his ohana, or "extended family".
