Episode Summary

EDIT
It’s Valentines Day and everyone is celebrating by giving out meat valentines, but when a new girl named Tak arrives and starts giving out sausages, Zim believes she has a crush on him so he exploits the opportunity to examine human love rituals. However, when such doesn’t turn out so well, he decides to head home, only to discover later that Tak followed him home and that she is actually a member of the Irken race. Tak plans to take over Zim’s mission so she can show the Tallest that she is worthy of being an Invader, but that’s not something Zim is going to permit so easily so he vows to prevent her from doing this, as the Earth is his planet to destroy.moreless

  • Quite a satisfying episode!

    8.0
    Yup, I actually really like this episode because I think that Tak is an awesome character. She turns out to be a second irken invader which wants to take Zim's mission because she thinks she deserves it and not ZIM. I found this episode really funny to watch, especially when Zim thinks that Tak is after his robot bee. This episode has really good storyline and animation and I do think Tak's design is quite original. Tak was going to hollow out the magma core of the Earth and fill it with snacks as an offering to the tallest. Zim teams up with Dib and Gaz to try to stop her. Zim chases Tak in their Zoot Cruisers while Dib tries to shut down the pump. Gaz and Gir team up to remote control Mimi (Tak's SIR unit), but Gaz has to dance with Gir first, one of the parts which made me laugh.

    I think this is actually one of the best episodes to air.

  • Awesome

    There is a new girl in Zim's class called Tak who turns out to be a second Urken invader who's goal in life is to kill Zim and destroy the world and please the tallests leaders of Urk. So Zim, Gir, Gaz and Dib have to team up to stop her. This is definetly the funniest episode of Invader Zim with the best story line and animation. It is much more different than any other episode because all the characters have to work together. This was a brilliant ending to season 1 and the best episode of the best program evermoreless
  • Man Did I love this episode

    10
    TAK: The Hideous New Girl was one of The Best episodes mosly this episode is my 6th Favorite after Backseat Drivers from Beond The Stars, Zim Eats Waffles, Door to Door, Parent Teacher Night and GIR Goes Crazy and Stuff. I say Tak is my Favorite one time character I also just love her Human Disguise it really suits A person of this century (I Guess?). I loved The Part where Ms. Bitters sends Brian and Rob to the Underground classroom.



    Ms. Bitters: Thanks, Tak. That was horrible. Now, you'll need a place to sit.



    Ms. Bitters points her finger at the students, moving it around trying to decide on one. She points to Rob.



    Ms. Bitters: You! You're being transferred to the underground classroom!



    Rob's desk lowers into the ground and rises back up without him. Tak rushes over and takes his seat. Ms. Bitters points to Brian.



    Ms. Bitters: And you! I'm just tired of you!



    Brian's desk lowers down and rises back up without him. His screaming can be heard. Zim leans up against the doorway with the meat on him, still screaming in pain. Poonchy, Drinker of Hate walks in his his hands in the air. He walks over and takes Brian's seat. Zim runs around across the back of the classroom. Poonchy glances around.



    I just laughed and Laughed at that part. I also liked the whole Montague of What Tak did to Zim. Also GIR saying "Only if youll Dance with me" Cracked me up too. Thats all I have to say about one of my favorite Zim episodesmoreless
  • A new girl in class. Does Zim have a girlfriend??

    9.2
    On Valentine's Day, the students are exchanging their meat products when a new student arrives. Her name is Tak. She has a really cool cat that whips around so fast, you can't see it. Tak recites a poem to Zim about exacting revenge but Zim misunderstands and takes it as a love poem. Zim tries to accept Tak as his girlfriend, but she gets him with filthy human food everytime! Then Tak shows up at Zim's house and reveals that she is Irkin also and that it was Zim who ruined her life and chance to be an Irkin Invader 50 years ago. Tak has her own diabolical plan to take over earth. She is going to hollow out the magma core of the Earth and fill it with snacks as an offering to the tallest. Zim teams up with Dib and Gaz to try to stop her. Zim chases Tak in their Zoot Cruisers while Dib tries to shut down the pump. Gaz and Gir team up to remote control Mimi (Tak's robot), but Gaz has to dance with Gir first.

    Gir is able to take over Mimi and destroy the controls on Tak's ship and shutting down her plan. Of course, Zim takes all of the credit for saving Earth when it was actually Gaz and Gir.moreless

    • (Using her mind control ability)

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Johnny the Homicidal Maniac:
      Tak's human disguise looks a lot like the apparrel of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, one of Jhonen Vasquez's, the creator of Invader ZIM, more famous creations.

    • Ghost in the Shell

      When Tak makes her exit from Zim's house, she turns herself invisible from the neck down by merely waving her hand in front of her face. This is in reference to the anime film Ghost in the Shell, where Major Motoko Kusanagi did such in the scenes right before the opening title.
