Ice Age 2: The Meltdown picture

Trivia: The movie contains a spoof of Saving Private Ryan, where Manny is hit by a geyser and temporarily loses his hearing.

Leroy & Stitch picture

Trivia: Some say that Leroy is experiment 628. Some people haven't noticed that in the episode with 627, at the end of the episode, Jumba had said, "Maybe next time will be better" as he places a pod that said 628. So 628 had already been created. He was never shown in the entire series, though Leroy is 629.
