  • 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, 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
  • Should have aired Season 2 entirely.

    This was a really good show, even though just about everyone was dumber than a bag of hammers, I still loved it. Kevin Mcdonald is a really funny guy, when he is playing Purple. And Red is funny. Some of the dumb things Zim does is great. Dib is a little too annoying but he is good. Gaz could have been a better influence. They should have made the entire Season 2 before they killed the show. For those who made the ratings suffer you obviously need to get a taste in REAL TV and not crap that they air today.moreless

    This show was just the perfect blend of talent and humor. The characters are all memorable, the storylines original, the humor... undescribably funny, overall, the biggest masterpiece in cartoon history. If you like absurdity with a slight dark twinge, give it a watch, and you can painfully torture me if you hate it.
  • 100% Pure genius, too bad it was short lived.

    It's hard to believe a show such as Invader ZIM got the ax too soon. It had everything that made up a good show, wonderful characters, great atmosphere, unending laughs from beginning to end, and excellent music. But the sad truth is that Nick canceled this because of the shows "dark humor" and parents accused this show for driving a kid to commit murder. Now that is just unfair, this show was very funny and it had nothing to do with the kid committing murder. The show should have lasted longer and at least have a TV movie to wrap up the series. Compare this show to the rest of crap shown on Nickelodeon (with the exception of Avatar) and you will see they have nothing on ZIM. Jhonen, I know you are probably told this a million times, but please bring this show back on the air, we want to see more adventures of Zim, GIR, and everyone else not this crap that is being shown on Nickelodeon. This show should be on Adult Swim and Jhonen can continue his genius. If you haven't seen this show, what are you waiting for? Look up episodes on Youtube or buy the DVDs. I know I am just one of millions of people saying but, BRING THIS BACK!moreless
