123 - Carmen

Carmen, A.K.A. Experiment 123, is an illegal genetic experiment created by Jumba Jookiba and a character in the Lilo & Stitch franchise. She is designed to make people dance uncontrollably until they drop. Her one true place is at dance contests on the island. She is voiced by Tress MacNeille.

She appeared in Leroy & Stitch.


Carmen is a pink, blue-eyed, four-armed, Angel (624)-like experiment with a red nose and dark purple-tipped ears, with a crest resembling a headdress of fruits and holding a maraca in each of her four hands.

Carmen has dark pink fur with splashes of light pink fur on her limbs. Her belly is also light pink. She is somewhat curvier than Angel, but her legs are the shortest of any other experiment with a similar build. She keeps all four of her long arms exposed at all times. Her eyes and tongue are a robin's-egg blue. Two short antennae extend just beneath her ears. Her most outstanding feature is the fruit salad she wears on her head. Bananas, grapes, oranges, cherries, pineapples, you name it, she's got it. She carries four festive maracas around as well, at all times. She stands 2 feet 10 inches tall.

Special Abilities

Carmen makes people dance until they drop by firing pink balls of energy out of her maracas. She can also cancel the effect by clapping the maracas together.


Carmen made an appearance in the Stitch! anime where she made Hämsterviel and his forces dance uncontrollably. It is shown that she does this by firing pink balls of energy out of her maracas.



  • Her name is a reference to Carmen Miranda, a world-famous Brazilian singer and dancer of the early 20th century well known for wearing a headdress of tropical fruits and her use of maracas.
  • In a brief scene of Leroy & Stitch during the "Aloha ʻOe" concert, a towering, somewhat monstrous version of Carmen can be seen in the background. This version of her has a slightly elongated face; two long arms with larger hands and extended claws; a long, narrow torso; and what appears to be back spines that are extended similarly to Stitch's spines.
  • Carmen's pod color is red.
