"Checkers" is the forty-sixth episode of Lilo & Stitch: The Series. It aired on March 4, 2005.
Lilo's hula school is building a Merrie Monarch parade float, and Lilo is upset that the others do not like her ideas. However, when a crown-shaped experiment sits on her head, its power causes everyone to treat her like a queen. After she sees the consequences of her rulership and decides to step down, Gantu takes Checkers and makes himself king. Meanwhile, Stitch and Reuben round up their cousins to rebel against Gantu.
- When the experiments rebel against Gantu, Deforestator has a third leg and Elastico's tail is in the wrong place.
- Reuben appears with the other experiments when they all volunteer to help rebuild the float, but when they are actually fixing it, he disappears.
- Moral: You can't have your way all the time, and with great power comes great responsibility.
- Gantu is apparently a good chef, as he was seen cooking pasta.
- Ironically, in "Finder", Reuben ridiculed Gantu's ability to make sandwiches.
- Reuben has a pet cockroach named Jimmy.
- Gantu is revealed to hate insects and attempted to kill Jimmy upon first seeing him.
- This is one of the only two episodes where Yin appears without Yang, the other being "Shoe".
