StiTcheS was born December 2001 with the creation
of Little StiTcheS. Since then there have been many concepts
behind StiTcheS and his origin. From little space traveler
to toy brought to live, Little StiTcheS served as the main
story driven character.
Shortly after the creation of Little StiTcheS,
and his first debut in a stop motion animation, an attempt
to create a larger version was made. It was not until 2004
that a Big StiTcheS plush was fully realized, and that prototype
was used to create the manufactured version in 2006.
Story attempts on both StiTcheS ended in failures
for 5 years after his birth. Little StiTcheS' story became
more real as Big StiTcheS' story became more confusing. In
2006 a company asked to see a cartoon pitch for StiTcheS and
that is when both StiTcheS stories began to make sense and
fit into the same world.
In the beginning, Little StitcheS travelled
through space in his cardboard box and into the dorm of three
roommates. Being only 2.5 inches tall, he was hard to spot
and coutlessly got stepped on or sat upon. Little StiTcheS
made it his mission to take over the apartment and from there,
the entire block. Big StiTcheS was supposed to come in as
Little StiTcheS' creation, serving as his slave to get him
places that he could not due to his small stature. Of course,
nothing goes as planned and he created a being with a will
of his own. This initial concept was thrown out in 2006 due
to the over use of alien genre.
StiTcheS of Now
By throwing away the previous concept, a new
idea for both StiTcheS emerged. Toy brought to life. Below
you can read the pitch written for an animation featuring
the adventures of Little StiTcheS and eventually Big StiTcheS.
Once there was a plush maker who loved her creation
so much that when she kissed it, it came to life. Well, not
really. Enter Sora, a Pixie Agent working for the Society
of Toys Brought to Life (STBL), who has the authority to give
StiTcheS life. Unfortunately for her, the transaction doesnÍt
go as planned, due to the uncooperativeness of her client.
StiTcheS evades her attempt to Stamp him and uses his newly
acquired ID and passport to enter the toy world. (As a Semi-Illegal)
Since he has not been officially ïstampedÍ with a tracking
device, the PBI (Pixie Bureau of Investigation) is on a mission
to find him.
During his adventures, StiTcheS finds himself
face to face with the Underground Society Against Toys Brought
to Life (USATBL), led by Sir Peep, as well as new companions
to travel with (Mu) and new foes to butt heads with. Eventually
he becomes homesick for his creator and enlists Sora as one
of his new traveling crew in order to determine the location
of his maker. (And to eventually hit on her)
StiTcheSÍs constant stops are the Cardboard
Cantina, where he has a shot of sawdust and occasionally a
stake (a plain wooden stake) and the human world to steal
socks from the Creator. His ultimate goal, however, is to
make his creator aware of his existence, which is against
the first amendment of the STBL Constitution. Will little
StiTcheS be jealous when he finds that his maker has already
made another, larger version of himself?
What's the Difference
The two StiTcheS are simply referred to as Big
and Little StiTcheS. They are family in that the same person
made them both. Ironically, Little StiTcheS is Big StiTcheS’
older brother and although they look almost exactly alike,
there is one distinct visual difference. Little StiTcheS has
round ears while Big StiTcheS has rectangular ears.
The main goal of Little StiTcheS is to make
his existance known and surpass the overwhelming popularity
of his younger brother, Big StiTcheS. He plans and overplans
for everything and in the end, gets very little. He tends
to be more bitter towards the world and prefers to be a loner.
Big StiTcheS does not look too far into the
furture and tries to have as many adventures in the now as
possible. He also is career oriented and works hard putting
himself out there for all to see. While he is not seeking
lifelong goals like his big brother, everything he touches
seems to blossom.
