014 - Kernel

Kernel, A.K.A. Experiment 014, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba and a character in the Lilo & Stitch franchise. He is designed to pop popcorn for Jumba's movie night. His one true place is popping popcorn for a movie theater.

He was mentioned in "Angel" when Jumba falsely said, "624 is harmless early experiment. Designed to...pop popcorn for Jumba's movie night." 014 was erroneously referred to as 624. He was seen in an enclosure at the movie theater popping popcorn.


Kernel is a tan gourd-shaped experiment with a large opening at the top of his head, black eyes, a red nose, a thin mouth, short ears and a white stomach.

Special Abilities

Kernel can produce popcorn, and pop it out of the opening on his head.



  • In "Angel", after Angel turned Jumba evil again, he lied when he stated that Angel's primary function was to "pop popcorn for Jumba's movie night."
  • Kernel's pod color is white.
  • Kernel is described by the experiment computer screen as, "Experiment 014 Primary function: Popcorn popping".
  • Kernel is one of the few experiments to not appear in the group photo at the end of Leroy & Stitch.
