The new school year starts off terrible for Kim. In her ordinary life her best friend is moving away, and in her heroic crime-fighting life, three of the most notorious villains in her world plan to use time travel as a weapon against her.
New circumstances forces Lilo and her alien friends to part ways while Gantu and Dr. Van Hamsterviel create the Stitch clone, Leroy, in order to capture all of the experiments and take over the galaxy.
David Ogden Stiers
Stitch, an alien living on Earth disguised as a dog with his human family, continues his adventures when he discovers that the alien family he never knew he had is now in Hawaii, being hunted down by galactic forces.
Kim and Ron start out a new school year, only to find out that Ron's family is moving to Norway. This puts a strain on their partnership, just as Dr. Drakken, Monkey Fist, and Duff Killigan team up to find and use an ancient time travel device to rule the world. Attacking Kim in the past, present, and future, can these villians succeed? Or will an unforeseen force be more destructive? Written by
"Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time" works as a feature-length episode of this cracking Emmy-nominated series and as a good movie in its own right, if not the most original one of its type - but in any case, time travel's always a good source of stories and so are villains teaming up. In this case, writers/story editors Bill Motz and Bob Roth have most of Kim's recurring enemies joining forces to sort out our heroine once and for all, with Kim getting some help from the future's Rufus 3000 - a muscle-bound molerat who talks with the voice of Michael Dorn. Okay, so it does have some originality...
Most of the show's regular (Kim, her parents, Ron, the tweebs Jim and Tim, Wade, Rufus) and semi-regular characters (Drakken, Shego, Monkey Fist, Duff Killagin, Bonnie, Monique) make appearances here - though Senor Senior Senior and Senor Senior Junior are missing - and a lot of the fun comes from seeing their future selves, especially Wade and the tweebs; unlike some extended episodes there's no padding at all, and plenty of what makes "Kim Possible" such a great show, from sharp writing to good vocal acting (give Christy Carlson Romano credit for differentiating between Kim as herself and as a slightly younger version of herself - and Walt Disney Television credit for leaving the guest cast uncredited until the end).
The identity of the Supreme One is a bit too easy to guess - though in fairness Rufus 3000 does say it's obvious - and the insistence on draping a couple of the fight scenes with distracting songs is unfortunate (Adam Berry's score intentionally references John Williams's "Minority Report" music at one point, which is much more interesting), but these are the sole real flaws in an otherwise good production. Fun both for fans and for newcomers, "Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time" is SO not the waste of time, and arguably the best thing Freddie Prinze Jr's done to date.
