Episode Summary

EDIT
ZIM Eats Waffles
AIRED:
When Dib finally manages to get a spy camera inside Zim’s house, he plans to exploit the moment to show the Swollen Eyeball Network the truth about Zim’s nature. Unfortunately for Dib, Zim is more concerned with Gir’s waffles than his next evil plan, which causes Dib some complications as there is nothing special about waffles. However, when something out of the ordinary does occur, Dib believes he may just have a chance to succeed in his plans.moreless

  • It's an okay episode...

    6.5
    I am bothered by how undeveloped the plot is, though. The plot involves Dib hiding a camera inside of Zim's base, in an attempt to spy on him. But the plot is really flat and contains a stupid storyline. I mean episodes like Germs and NanoZIM actually had a plot with a problem, a proper setting. This episode is mainly just Dib watching GIR, Zim, and Nick have waffles for breakfast and the monitor being watched a majority of the time.



    I do like some of the stupid-related jokes, as I love dumb humor.moreless
  • Guess who made WAFFLES!!!!!!

    So, Dib finally gets a video camera inside Zim's house, but all Zim is doing is lying eating waffles that Gir makes for him. And worst of all, whenever Dib is calling the Swollen Eyebal network to show them Zim's plan, it always turns out he's a second too late. This episode is very funny, as well as a classic for the show. Any true Invader Zim fan will watch this episode, the entire episode, and record it so they can watch it more often.



    10/10 A+ Certainly an automatic, without a doubt, a simple classic that will get a laugh out of you every second of the episode.



    See You Next Time!moreless

    Even though I haven't seen this episode in a while, I still love it. GIR keeps bringing Zim waffles and, a squid attacks! Dib keeps convincing attacking people that Zim is an alien. I like how that everything bad happens while they eat waffles! For me, I like GIR in his doggey suit than his robot body. Nick, why did they call him Nick? Oh! I know why... to show that they're on nick! ;) I also like the main title they show the whole title... ZIM eats...waffles! A queston, why was Zim exacly wearing his descise? One more thing to say... Everyone on this show is stupid!moreless
  • WAFFLES!

    This episode was both frustrating and slow in some places, but it was saved by GIR and waffles being a funny combination. GIR coming up with seemingly different waffle recipes and throwing a tantrum when ZIM would not partake of them. I wish we could've seen more of what was going on at ZIM's because we were only limited to what Dib could see through the spy camera which he'd given to GIR.moreless
  • One of the most unusual episodes of the series. Actually, THE most unusual episode of the series.

    9.9
    We never really get to be where ZIM is... only through the eyes of Dib's spycam are we allowed to see ZIM this episode, thanks to GIR who kindly implants the device in the "kitchen" at Dib's kind request. The structure I find lends itself to a more calm feeling on ZIM's part, as we are only allowed to see from exactly one angle, so when ZIM isn't at the table (i.e. fight Zombies, etc.) we get a much better feeling for what it's like for Dib, not just during this episode but his frustrations that he endures of camera, basically every episode. This is the epitome of his frustration however, since it is so condensed into a real-time (as far as the timeline of the episode goes) 20 minute painfest as the Swollen Eye members pick up the transmission just too late every-single-time, furthermore damaging Dib's credibility! Wow, shows us how a show's unconventional episodes can be really good, especially if the show is already amazingly brilliant, definitely not a "throw away" episode like some shows have when they try to step outside their normal perspectives, or they often get an "oh, yeah, that was a kinda interesting one." Nope, not IZ, this episode is sweet sauce all over my eyeballs! Sugar Syrup and Waffles, DELICIOUS!moreless

      Zim: I'm not going to eat that!
      (Gir screams uncontrollably)
      Zim: Enough! I will try some already.

    • Zim: Gir your waffles have sickened me - Fetch me the bucket!

    • Nick: I never want to leave this magical place again!

    • Zim: GIR, I need a break from the talking of my new plan - let's have a silence, huh?

    • Greg: Hello! Thank you for calling the FBI, my name is Greg, how may I help you?
      Dib: I have an emergency! There's a kid who's...
      Greg: (Laughs) Hey, you're Dib, right? Did you ever get that ninja ghost out of your toilet?
      Dib: Yes! No thanks to you! There's a kid in trouble!

      Greg: Man! That kid sure loves his waffles! Stay right there, we're sending someone to beat you up for playing jokes on the FBI!

    • Agent Darkbootie: Hmmm... Agent Mothman, once I tied Bigfoot's toe hairs together. It was very funny, until his insane fit of howling rage ended in tragedy for a family of campers. My point is, jokes do not have a place in the Swollen Eyeball network. Call back when you're serious.

    • Gir: These got peanuts and soap in 'em!

  • NOTES (1)
