Trivia:
Bloody GIR is an Easter Egg visible in several episodes of the series. To see him, one would likely need a DVD player capable of viewing screens frame by frame. The most visible instance of bloody GIR is in the opening sequence of Mortos der Soulstealer. The image is evident for at least two frames in the end of one of the pipes that snakes out of Zim's house. Bloody GIR has also been sighted in Bad, Bad Rubber Piggy as the last pig goes through the "space time object replacement device". He has also been seen in the voot cruiser sequence in the opening of Plague of Babies. He is seen looking in the window of the voot at the left hand corner of the screen several times, some more noticeable than others. Bloody GIR was born when Jhonen drew an image of GIR covered in blood. He wanted to make an episode that featured bloody GIR but Nickelodeon would not allow it. He decided to slip the image into several episodes without their knowledge.See more »

The best show on Nick, 12 June 2001
Author: SpideyTerry from Ardmore, PA

This has to be one of the smartest and funniest animated shows ever. I rarely watched Nick before this show came on after seeing how badly they screwed up their line up. Now I'm tuning in every Friday to watch this show. It has excellent writing. I have honestly never laughed so hard by watching a Nick show in so long. All the characters are a riot. The show has great animation and also a spooky style to match. Invader ZIM is the best show on Nick by far. None of the other Nick shows come close. Invader ZIM is a winner and I hope it continues.
