"Angel" is the thirtieth episode of Season 1 of Lilo & Stitch: The Series. It aired on January 5, 2004.
Stitch falls in love with a female experiment that looks like him and names her "Angel", but Lilo is both jealous and suspicious of her. When she later looks up Angel on Jumba's computer, she discovers that the experiment turns good experiments back to evil by singing her siren song and is working for Gantu. Stitch runs after Angel and finds out the truth too late. Now, it's up to Lilo, Jumba and Pleakley to save Stitch before the other experiments turn on their own cousin.

- Moral: You've got to believe in love.
- Angel is a parody of Lorelei the Siren, as her song is an evil in the guise of beauty, much like the Sirens of ancient myth.
- In the Finnish version of the series, her name is Seireeni, meaning "Siren", and in the Arabic version, her name is Farasha, meaning "Butterfly".
- Angel is a reference to the Elvis Presley song "(You're the) Devil in Disguise", as she is considered by Stitch to be beautiful while she is (or was) evil on the inside.
- Pleakley is revealed to be fascinated by romances between two individuals.
- Like Stitch, Reuben has a similar crush on Angel, yet she neither shares the same feelings nor even likes him.
- When Jumba was reverted to evil again by Angel's song, and Lilo asked Jumba what 624's primary function was, he claimed that she was designed to "pop popcorn for Jumba's movie night," but he was actually stating the purpose of Experiment 014 (Kernel).
- Hämsterviel's phone number is revealed on Angel's pet tag, which she only wore in one scene: when she was running up Waialeale Peak with Stitch following her (although the collar was seen on Pleakley's video camera, Angel's tag was never shown before or after running up Waialeale Peak).
- After Angel turns the evil experiments back to good and Stitch commands them to get Gantu, Reuben breaks the fourth wall by saying, "Uh-oh, plot twist!"
- When Stitch gets blasted into a net, his feet are exposed, even though he should have easily fit inside the net.
- The net would have likely captured both Angel and Stitch in it.
- Due to a continuity error, the fur pattern on Angel's back is inconsistent in the series. In her debut, it is an upside-down heart. In "Snafu", it somewhat resembles Stitch's, and she also gains a marking on the back of her head, but these markings disappear in some scenes. In Leroy & Stitch, she does not have any markings on her back or the back of her head at all. The anime was also inconsistent with the patterns, with her having either the original upside-down heart back marking or the "Snafu" markings depending on the episode. Later merchandise did correct her back to having the upside-down heart-shaped marking.
- In addition, her fur was a deeper shade of pink in this episode, compared to all her later appearances.
- In spring 2004, Disney Channel held an online poll that asked viewers for their favorite experiments and episodes from Season 1 of the series. According to the top 10 results of that poll, "Angel" was the #1 most popular episode and experiment,Lilo & Stitch: The Series Trivia on IMDb likely foreshadowing the character's breakout status within the Lilo & Stitch franchise.
