Invader blood marches through my veins like giant, radioactive rubber pants! Met Zim, an arrogant and none-too-bright Irkin sent to Earth to destroy it. Well, sent by accident. The Tall Ones just wanted to get rid of Zim and shot him randomly into space.

While other Irkin Invaders are equipped with SIR's (Standard Information Retrieval Units), Zim is given an assistant put together from pieces pulled from the trash; a GIR. ("What does the `G' stand for?" GIR shrugs, "I don't know.") Ah, the stink of clean!

With GIR's help, Zim must conquer earth. He disguises himself as a human child and attends school. No one suspects him except Dib, an outcast at school with a fixation on alien invasions.

The humor is advanced for Nickelodeon, most likely the reason they finally pulled the show. Body functions and toilet humor abound, along with some great one-liners. Pure cartoon entertainment, especially for fans of Jhonen Vasquez's humor.

My one complaint would be that there are no English subtitles. For those of us who are a little hard of hearing, I like to have subtitles sometimes.
Here's a rundown of the episodes:

Disc One:
Episode One-The Nightmare Begins
On Irkin, Zim shows up late for Invader assignments and is sent away in a random direction with GIR, just to get rid of him. Zim lands on earth, and sets up his base for plotting to destroy the planet.

Episode Two-Bestest Friend
Zim discovers he won't fit in with earthlings unless he has a friend. So he tests several of the kids to find out who will be his bestest friend. The tests include absorbency, electrical conductivity, and one that involved a squirrel and a taxi, but wasn't shown. The winner is Keef!

Episode Three-NanoZim
Dib takes an incriminating picture of Zim to send to Mysterious Mysteries of Strange Mystery, to prove Zim is an alien. Zim shrinks down and goes inside Dib's body to destroy his memory of the photo. Dib uses his dad's nano-technology to chase after Zim, but Gaz has to take over the controls to defeat Zim.

Episode Four-Parent Teacher Night
Zim has to reprogram his mechanical parents to attend Parent/Teacher night at school, but instead of the training program, GIR changes the screen to his favorite programs (like the Scary Monkey Show). Zim winds out with really weird parents.

Episode Five-Walk of Doom
Zim gets lost on purpose to test his new geographic locator, but GIR removed it to make room for a cupcake.

Episode Six-Germs
Hilarious episode! Zim buys germ goggles, only to find out his house is riddled with nasty germs. Especially GIR. The only thing Zim can find that is germ free is some really nasty burger meat, so he wears the meat

Episode Seven-Dark Harvest
One of my favorites! Zim needs human organs in order to appear human to the school nurse. He steals organs and replaces them with items like hall passes, cartons of milk, and cans of soda. At the end, he is bloated with organs.

Episode Eight-Attack of the Saucer Morons
Zim declares war on bees. He crashes his ship in the park during a UFO convention. "Ride the pig, GIR, ride the pig!"

Episode Nine-The Wettening
When it rains, Zim discovers that water hurts him. Unfortunately, so does Dib. What follows is the world's ultimate water balloon fight.

Disc Two:
Episode Ten-Career Day
This is likely the most disgusting, and therefore one of the funnier, episodes. Zim wants to be Lord of All Humans on career day, but is instead assigned to food preparation. He gets a case of zits and...well...things go downhill from there.

Episode Eleven-Battle Dib
Dib has to go through a triathlon type contest just to get his father to sign a note. The contest includes Spido-Ractno-Rama.

Episode Twelve-Planet Jackers
Zim's telescope is broken, so he must find a more powerful one. GIR wants to make biscuits instead. Using the telescope, Zim finds out earth has been planet-jacked and needs to get it back from the jackers.

Episode Thirteen-Rise of the Zitboy
Zim gets a pimple, and discovers that it has the power to hypnotize humans. He draws a face on it and names it Pustulio. He refers to it as a 'hideous montage of humiliation and shame'.

Episode Fourteen-Invasion of the Idiot Dog Brain
When Zim is installing a new house brain, GIR gets in the way and GIR's brain winds out in the house. "Shut your noise tube, taco human!"

Episode Fifteen-Bad Bad Rubber Piggy
Zim attempts to send a Hunter/Destroyer machine into the past to get rid of Dib, but GIR's rubber pig goes instead. Zim then must use ALL of GIR's rubber pigs to change the past and stop Dib from hounding him.

Episode Sixteen-A Room With a Moose
Zim sends a bus with Dib and his classroom out into space, through a wormhole headed towards a Room With A Moose. It's up to Dib to get the bus back to earth.


Episode Seventeen-Hamstergeddon
One of my favorites! Meet Peepi the hamster. Peepi is the class's new pet. Zim alters Peepi to grow at a phenomenal rate in order to use Peepi's cuteness to conquer the world.

Invader Zim is an imaginative and enjoyable cartoon for those adults, like me, who never tire of being a kid once in awhile. I wouldn't recommend this cartoon for small kids, but its good silly fun for the mature cartoon connoisseur. Enjoy!
