  • I MISS ZIM

    1.0
    Those three words couldn't ring more true for me. This show felt like it was cut down in it's prime. The show is memorable, charming, and brave. It pushed it's boundaries when it cane to gore, and I loved every moment I spent with the hilarious lovable character cast. To this very day I can't help but have my mind drift over to what could have been with the show. All I can say is, if you don't like zim, go to a hospital because there's something wrong with your head. (Trying to rate ten but my tablet won't register it)moreless

    This is one of the worst TV shows I have seen in my life it is worse then Adventure time I don't mind shows being weird ( heck my 4th favorite show is the Amazing world of Gumball) " but the plots at least have to make sense and be logical all the episodes I have seen of this garbage are overly werid and the plots don't make sence most of the timemoreless

    One of the best things to come out of . Invader Zim had the humor and the charming animation style to easily be one of my favorite Nicktoons. Every plot for this show was golden. The characters were so memorable and the voice actors made them like that. Michael Richard Horvitz did PHENOMENAL as Zim. GIR being mostly the funniest but I also loved Gaz. Invader Zim had the humor to make me laugh until I coughed and had the gore to make me cringe. This show got cancelled too I would be very happy to see this show back even have to be Nick. I'd love to see what CN could do with ZIMmoreless
  • No doubt, the greatest Nicktoon ever created.

    Why Nickelodeon chose to cancel this show still remains one of life's greatest mysteries to me. Invader Zim was by far the greatest cartoon Nick ever created, and it's a strong contender for greatest cartoon ever made. The characters, the humor, were all amazing. The whole show is just brilliantly written. Only a few cartoons have such smart writers, and Invader Zim is one of them. And Richard Horvitz was amazing as Zim. The art style, while a little creepy at some points, is also one of the show's coolest attributes. It also had some great CGI, something you don't really see in many cartoons.



    As for the characters, I like all of the main ones. Zim is really funny, Dib is really crazy, and Gaz can be really insane. All three of them are funny in some way, but none of them are anything compared to GIR. He's just the funniest and the craziest of all the characters. GIR just might be one of the best cartoon characters ever conceived. I'm a guy, and I think he's just the cutest thing imaginable, especially when he's in his dog costume.



    I will say this about Invader Zim. As incredible as it is, its not for everyone. Sure it's a kids cartoon, but it's a very mature kids cartoon. It's got one of the darkest atmospheres in animation. The humor, while really funny, can also be really dark. And the whole show can be pretty creepy. You want an example, just watch the Halloween episode. I sometimes wonder if it's because of all the dark moments (And there many of them) that Nickelodeon decided to cancel Invader Zim.



    But being dark is alright, that's what makes this show so awesome. And I'll gladly take the dark comedy of Zim over the gross humor of shit like Fanboy and Chum Chum or the completely "devoid of any kind of humor" style humor in Uncle Grandpa, as I'm sure most kids will. Invader Zim is one of my favorite cartoons ever. And I still think it should of had the chance to end properly, instead of just being cancelled. Oh well, it's a fantastic show nonetheless.moreless
