Episode Summary

Bad, Bad Rubber Piggy
Zim finally finishes one of his self proclaimed brilliant inventions, a space-time-object-transfer device, in which he plans to send a giant robot into the past in order to put an end to Dib once and for all. However, when the robot isn’t compatible with the temporal field, he throws a rubber pig into the vortex instead, which turns out to be compatible and it causes Dib to crash his tricycle in the past. Zim decides to send many more rubber pigs into Dib’s past, which ultimately affect him in the future; though when Zim overdoes himself, he discovers that history isn’t something that should be messed with.moreless

  • Zim tries to rid himself of Dib..... With Rubber Pigs.

    The episode ROCKED. It had plenty of original humor ("Like this giant fish in a bear suit!"), The plot was creative (with the destorying dib with pigs type of plot), and of course, GIR. That little robot aways makes me crack open like an egg("I love-ed you piggy!"). So, let me go ahead and jump STRAIGHT into the conclusion because I have noting else to say.

    10/10 A+ If you're an Invader Zim fan, you MUST watch this episode. It's full of time travel,giant robots,GIR, and of course, THE RUBBER PIGGIES. so, watch this episode as soon as you can!

    See you next time!moreless
  • Perfect

    In this episode, Zim makes a machine that can insert things into the past or future. Zim uses it to screw up Dib's past, and he inserts Gir's rubber piggys in there. Then, in the altered future, Dib is altered into a robotic like state that comes with guns, and a vengence for Zim. I was laughing the whole time at this episode, as it's very funny. Zim actually succeeds with what he's doing this episode for once. Overall, definitly one of the best and one that will be remembered for a very very very very long time. 10/10 A+moreless
  • An episode where, for once, Zim seems to win, and the one that made me realize...I HAVE NO CLUE WHO I\'M CHEERING FOR!

    This was the first episode I ever saw (I started watching right when Dib crashed his tricycle, then stopped because I was scared. Hey, I was eight!) and back then I hated it. Now I love it, and hate it, and the love it...

    At first I was overjoyed that Zim seemed to be winning, and then I\'m freaking out because Dib is dead, and then I\'m cheering because his dad finds a way to revive him, and then I\'m freaking out because Zim is holding his brain in his hand (he had a brain? No, really, he had a brain? Dark Harvest and...he had a brain?) and there\'s a little rubber piggy in his head warning him not to use the time machine...

    This episode made me realize that I don\'t know who I\'m cheering for anymore. I want to cheer for Dib because he\'s a cute lil human boy and he\'s fighting for \'my\' life (okay, everyone\'s life), but then I\'m cheering for Zim because he\'s trying to win the trust of the Tallest back, but Dib wants to win the love of his peers...see my dilemma? Oh yes, and you know those blurry little screenshots on BuzzyWorld and Wikipedia of the Bloody GIR in this episode? I never could see him on there. I could barely even see the eyes, and that\'s only if I stand about ten feet away from my computer and squint. Then I use my Doom Doom Doom DVD and my DVD player and I can not only see the eyes, but the whole body, and the blood! Hooray for...wait, I\'m cheering! Dib died! Yes, but Zim won! Oh, but then he lost...which means Dib, forget it!moreless
  • Hahaha, funny.

    This episode was great, couldn't have done it better. This episode, truly, intoduced the rubber piggy that has been throughout Invader ZIM. The writers and Jhohen did really well on it, so I thank them for giving uss this awesome episode, and this awesome show. Congratz and thanks!

    The jokes in this episode couldn't be topped anywhere other than Invader ZIM. "Since my son hs dies ina freak piggy accident..." That was hilarious! Then, the suspense really builds up when you see Dib's lifeline starting up again. I loved it!

    10 out of 10, perfect score, perfect episode!

    Thanks for reading this review.moreless
  • ''I love-ded you piggy i love-ded you''

    All right,we all know Invader ZIM is one of the funniest cartoons ever! but this one takes it to the extreme ZIM sends a ''Hunter Destroyer Machine'' but sadly it won't go which makes him all angry and then throws a pig and it hurts Dib in the past which gives ZIM an idea to throw every single pig ever in Dib's past. Why do so many people hate this episode? Yes it kinda was sick because you know i hate pigs and stuff but it was hilarous at the same time Jhonen you never cease to keep me laughing.moreless
