I think you mean Invader Zim and yes its a very funny show if you haven’t seen it you should probably check it out. Especially if your sense of humor is abit twisted then its perfect for you.

"I like this show." ^_^ Gir is so cute, in an 'advanced' sort of way.
It's a show on Nickelodeon at...I don't know what times but I do see it on Nicktoon TV in the mornings. The show is..weird but it's so funny! The creator, Jhonen Vasquez, created a comic called Johnny the Homicidal Maniac that became quite popular. After that he made Squee, I Feel Sick, and then on to create Invader Zim! They are pretty interesting comics, in a wicked demented piggy sort of way. A quick google search will tell you more about it.

Mmmm...tacos.

Edit: Had to take out pic don't know WTF that was! x_x

It was on Nickelodeon for a while ... but it was taken off the air. I don't know what their reason was for not showing it anymore ... but I'd imagine it would have to do with the fact that Nickelodeon is a channel for little kids and Invader Zim is a cartoon made by guy that draws comics about psychopathic homocidal maniacs.

This Cartoon is pretty twisted, but entertaining at the same time. It's quite original, but not really the 'cutest' cartoon out there.

EDIT: Gir is the best and so is this show :P

Lo-and-behold, Media Blasters made an announcement months ago that they had picked up Invader Zim for a DVD release (on the Anime Works line, strangely enough.)

That'll make ZIM fans happy, since they can now own all the madness in higher quality than all the crap captures out there today.

Nickelodeon, however, killed ZIM off in much the same way they killed Ren and Stimpy off. Go do a few searches on google and the full, horrible story will be easily found. Jhonen suffered pretty much the same treatment and was supposedly turned off animation because of it.

I hope this doesn't affect future decisions to do a project with a more respectable company in the future.

I've seen quite a few Jhonen quotes where he says it's very unlikely he'll ever do an animated series again. After what happened with Zim it's hard to blame him.

There was one full season of Zim released and 7 episodes of a second season that were never shown in the US but did air in Brazil and 2 or 3 of the episodes aired in Australia.

Media Blasters (which is the parent company of Animeworks btw) will be releasing three double DVD sets. The first is to be released on May 11th (happy birthday me!) and then another set one to two months later and the last one or two months after that. After all the sets are released they will be issuing a limited edition box that will have room for all the discs plus an extra disc included. There isn't any pre-order info up on the official website but you can pre-order through amazon. Media Blasters also has said if Zim sells well they want to look into getting some of the other older nick toons, like Rocko and Angry Beavers.

The DVDs will have all of the first season, the 7 never US released episodes, plus the uncut version of the christmas special (which was totally hilarious!). They will also feature commentary by Jhonen and others who worked on Zim and the pilot episode. Supposedly the episodes will also be recut to how Jhonen wanted them originally but I've seen various versions of that. Media Blasters says they will be recut but a Nick executive says they don't have the original versions, so who knows.

I'm very excited, I've loved Jhonen's work for a long time and I think Zim is just awesome. I've already got the first set pre-ordered!
