Not many people realize how heartbreaking this scene is. Her parents died is a rainstorm, and she believes that if she takes Pudge the Fish a sandwich, nothing bad will happen because of the weather again.
Did you know? That within the original script Pudge the fish who controls the weather from Lilo and Stich was going to die. In the scene above Lilo shows Pudge to Stich who was still in his bad phase slaps the fish away. The scene was going to be used to bridge the connection of Lilos parents who had passed away and Stitch understanding Ohana on a much deeper level. The scene was ultimately cut from the movie as it was considered too dark.
When Lilo explains about how she desperately needed to give Pudge the fish a peanut butter sandwich because he controls the weather, it seems that she is just being random, but there is reason behind it: Lilo’s parents died in a rainstorm.
