001 - Shrink

Shrink, A.K.A. Experiment 001, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba, and Jumba's first experiment to be assigned a number. He is designed to shrink and/or enlarge objects. He was apparently named by Jumba and Hämsterviel before coming to Earth. His one true place is enlarging goods at the Keo Farm.

Shrink was seen in a newspaper clip on the wall of Jumba's lab along with several other pictures of Jumba and Hämsterviel's early accomplishments. Hämsterviel then tried to convince Jumba to work for him again. However, Jumba refused and pointed out that Hämsterviel had been responsible for getting the former arrested.


Shrink is a mischievous being, and appears to be simple-minded. Levitating takes energy out of him, as he often rests on tree branches or the like.


Shrink is a small purple experiment with a white lower jaw and chest, three wobbly legs, two stubby little arms and two floppy antennae with two rings.

Special Abilities

Shrink emits a green ray from his eyes that will shrink an object or organism to a very small size. It has been demonstrated that only the first zap shrinks the object, the second restores its size, and every other enlarges it. He can deny gravity to an extent of levitation and/or flight.


Shrink can easily be manipulated by his victims, he can be easily steered by directing his antennae, and can be used as a turret.


Shrink made an appearance in Season 2 of the Stitch! anime where he shrunk Stitch and Yuna's cousin. It is revealed that he can be very mischievous and has the ability to levitate. He appears again in a later episode along with Squeak (110), Clip (177), Nosox (204), and Retro (210).
