Trivia:
Although Zim is the show's title character, the most frequent title character of the episodes themselves is Dib - four episode titles contain his name in one form or another: "Battle-Dib", "Future Dib", "Dib's Wonderful Life of Doom", and "Dibship rising." Zim's name appears in only two titles ("Nanozim" and "Zim Eats Waffles"), while GIR, Gaz, Tak, and Mortos have one title each.See more »
Quotes:
Tak:The great thing about your people Dib is that, most of them don't notice. All they see is another faceless corporate venture! Not a plan for world conquest!
Dib:Wait, is there really a difference?

Dark, Funny and well Animated, the last great American Animated TV Show, 5 June 2003
Author: Darth_Homer

Sometimes, there comes along a animated show which will be remembered for all time, now with all the anime we see on today's screens, we start to think, what happened to all the truly great American cartoons, well, this is the response to all that.

Invader ZIM is the story of a one alien trying to dominate Earth, along with his robot sidekick GIR, he tries but we all know he will fail, such is the story which is Invader ZIM.

Now that I've got that down, let me just say that this show's concept is good, the jokes funny and the animation slick and surreal.

I really don't fell like saying anymore, is it'll all be praise, but I tell you, if this show is ever on, stop what you are doing and watch, like myself and millions around the world, you will be hooked.
