Experiment 111 was the 111th genetic experiment created by Jumba with Hämsterviel's funding. He was designed to tear up the ground beneath him. 111 and the other first 624 experiments were deactivated and smuggled to Earth by Jumba during his mission to capture Experiment 626.
All of the experiment pods were released and scattered across the island of Kauai. Against statistically unlikely (but not impossible) odds, several experiment pods landed in one location: Mrs. Hasagawa's yard, 111's pod being one of them.
At an unknown point, Mrs. Hasagawa mistook 111's pod for an apricot and placed it in a colander for later consumption along with numerous other pods.
After Lilo and Stitch redecorated Mrs. Hasagawa's yard without her permission, she was less than thrilled with the results, but decided to thank them for their work with the "apricots." The pods were then revealed, but before Lilo and Stitch could stop her, she washed them with a watering can, thus activating the experiments.
After his activation, 111 began to carry out his primary function by tearing up the lawn in Mrs. Hasagawa's yard. Lilo and Stitch believed the experiments to be a danger to Mrs. Hasagawa and, along with Jumba and Pleakley, decided to capture them all. When Stitch was trying to convince Experiment 288 to go into a container, 111 started approaching. Stitch then threw 288 into the air and used the container to capture 111 instead.
111 and the other experiments were about to be taken away, but were returned to Mrs. Hasagawa when Lilo and Stitch saw how much she cared for them. 111 was then named Mulch.
The first 624 experiments, including Mulch, were rounded up by Leroy and taken to a a stadium to be destroyed. However, Lilo, Stitch, Jumba, Pleakley, Reuben and Gantu arrived before the experiments could be destroyed.
Mulch participated in the following battle between the experiments and the Leroy clones.
The Leroys soon gained the upper hand in the battle, but were defeated when Lilo, Stitch, Reuben and several other experiments performed the song "Aloha ʻOe", which caused the Leroy army to shut down due to the original Leroy's fail-safe.
- Mulch doesn't always seem to pay attention to where he is going, as Stitch was able capture him by simply placing a containment orb in his path. Similarly, he was easily captured by a Leroy clone by walking onto a net trap in plain sight.
- Mulch's pod color is blue.
- Mulch is described by the experiment computer screen as, "Experiment 111. Primary function: Push mower."
- Mulch is one of the few experiments to not appear in the group photo at the end of Leroy & Stitch.
