Stitch and Toothless by BenJJedi Stitch and Toothless by BenJJedi
Ah, yes. Stitch and Toothless. They have a few things in common. For one thing, the movies they star in are directed by the same guys, Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois. And another similarity is their designs.

Moving on, you know how sometimes people compare characters like Ariel, Belle, Jasmine and Tiana based on animation designs? Well, perhaps that's because they're animated by the same person, and thus look similar to one another. Stitch and Toothless are no exceptions.

For instance, you can tell that Stitch and Toothless look similar from their melon-shaped heads, their big eyes, their noses and claws, and their teeth. Just look carefully. ;)

they look nothing alike..the only similarity is the cuteness..and even there, toothless is cuter
Akakoii Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
There is no similarities other than the same directors -_-

Stitch is an alien, and Toothless is a dragon that's based off an axolotl.

Actually Toothless is based on a Axolotl

They're extremely similar. However, all Chris Sanders' characters are! They are all plump, have round head, big eyes, nose right in the middle, pointy ears, sharp teeth.. For more "Stitches" look up "The Art of the Lion King" - hyena concepts have Stitchy heads..

Awesome Paint skills, really... And Captain Obvious, to boot.

That's because Chris Sanders designed Stitch and when he moved from Disney to Dreamworks he wanted his design implemented in Toothless (he directed HTTYD)

It's cool that Chris sanders does the voices for both characters =P Plus they are both my favorite XD
EdgeFan Featured By Owner May 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
God, that's the firstt thing I said when I watched this! Especially when his eyes go all round and curious :)
Yep that's true I have the HTTYD DVD and I heard it there

You forgot to mention that they both have big ears! In my opinion, that's what makes them cute! <3
Axel7019 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011
They both have a face of pure evil.

When I first saw Toothless, I was like 'now where did I see that face before'.
Now I understand.:laughing:

those images are such good quality
Funsizefluffy Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2011
toothless always did remind me of stitch and they're both so cute!
CommonDusty Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I noticed this awhile ago, and kept calling Dreamworks a copycat because of it. :D

Now I know that they're by the same guys I'll stop.
QuirkyChik Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2011  Student Filmographer
Really glad to see that I wasn't the only one who said these two look alike :D and for some reason my friends couldn't see it O.o?

Interesting observation.
nyokochan Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011  Hobbyist
I stared at the pic then looked at the description ,I saw the same things.
CittyCat105 Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2011
i totally think they look alike. and that's not a bad thing. i love both of the.
Zombie-Kumos Featured By Owner May 31, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I kept saying the same thing throughout the movie. The movements, the appearance and even the sounds were kind of similar.

That and when Toothless barfed up the fish for Hiccup. It was almost like when Stitch ate up the cake and then spit it back out on the plate for Lilo (though she didn't eat it but still xD)
PhantomEnvy Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I always thought Toothless looked like Stitch! XD
PurpleBenji Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
you know when toothless is going to crash with hiccup? When he was 'Yelling' he looked like stitch when he was first surfing.
dyingdutchman Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
i noticed it since the beginning ther teeth are so the same
Nadezhda Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010
I never noticed that, and I just watched the movie. I think the nose is the only thing that's similar.
Duskeater Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010
I KNOW! When I first saw Toothless' eyes and ears they just screamed STITCH!!!
DAVIVANATOR Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2010
all that comparison its because the designer of the toothless´s design it was the same who designed stich. mistery solved ^_^
inupuppy1412 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
i thought they looked alike to!
nytboy Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2010

PunkKitty234 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
I noticed that too when I watched the movie
RaphaelTortuga Featured By Owner May 2, 2010
Oh yeah! That was my first thought see the movie. Not complaining though. I like Stitch's design.

ILOVEEXPERIMENT626 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
i love chris's style big unique eyes, the great way he draws round floppy like arms, and teeth, i love the way he does teeth, claws and things , yes they are similar but thats his style :)
Ronnie-R15 Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2010
OMG! I can see it!
Bee-Rock Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2010
They act the same too.
Nefepants Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
The big eyes and melon head is just the designer's style. Other than the things you've listed, they look nothing alike whatsoever.
Goldbryn Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2010
I'm actually finding myself getting more and more annoyed at people who want to get mad that others make this connection. I noticed it from the very beginning and that was before I even knew it was directed by Chris. I was astounded when I found out because it made me feel less crazy.
His art style is VERY unique and no matter what he helps design, that style seeps into his work. Princess and the Frog had animators that had worked on Mulan, Aladdin, and other disney animations, and if you looked close enough you could tell. Naveen had characteristic of Aladdin and Eric...Tiana had characteristics of Mulan.
Saying they are similar in drawing style is NOT SAYING THEY ARE SIMILAR AS CHARACTERS. Please people, understand this. I'm tired of people who make these connections being attacked.'s a compliment to the artists. It means their work is so unique and unforgettable that you can pick it out of anywhere, even when it is something as small as teeth and head shape.

TLDR; Saying they are similar in drawing style is NOT SAYING THEY ARE SIMILAR AS CHARACTERS. FFS!

okay...I'm done with my rant! I agree...I love the similarities. I also see similarities in the design for the gronkles and some of Chis' other creature designs.

Do you watch Chris Sanders up here? His art is amazing. `alohalilo
sorry again for the long winded rant.

[link] <-- mentioning of the connection between stitch and toothless, and some other information, like toothless personality is based on a domestic cat ^^
Goldbryn Featured By Owner May 12, 2010
the cat thing does not surprise me at all!! I find Chris' character renditions so intriguing!
Lisl89 Featured By Owner May 13, 2010  Student Photographer
it was easy to see the cat with the scenes of toothless rolling in the field and the chasing of the light-dot
i hope the sequel will be good to, nothing ruins a movie like a really bad sequel
Goldbryn Featured By Owner May 13, 2010
agreed. I could also see this movie being one of the FEW things in this world that would successfully work as a tv series!! Either way, there's so much they can do with it! I hope they go for the best!
Lisl89 Featured By Owner May 13, 2010  Student Photographer
tv? NO WAY, that would make it worse :noes:
Goldbryn Featured By Owner May 13, 2010
lol. I said it's the only one I think could be successful!! I know tv can kill things, but if they got a good writing team and did some plot development BEFORE they started, it wouldn't be filled with shit like some other things...but really...more character and dragon development. I think it could work. Just don't give it to disney...they ruin everything for tv.
Lisl89 Featured By Owner May 13, 2010  Student Photographer
disney is only allowed to make fairytales in the old 'the princess and the frog'
but i have this gut feeling that is telling me that HTTYD will be screwed up
