Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez. It was produced by and subsequently premiered on Nickelodeon. The series is about an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his ongoing mission to conquer and destroy Earth. His various attempts to subjugate and destroy the human race are invariably undermined by some combination of his own ineptitude, his malfunctioning robot servant GIR, and paranormal investigator Dib, one of very few humans attentive enough to be aware of Zim's identity. Invader Zim was first broadcast on March 30, 2001 and was targeted at children in their early teens, and met with critical acclaim, but after the first season, the show's ratings began to suffer. Before the second season was completed, Nickelodeon canceled the series, leaving at least 23 episodes and a planned television movie series finale unfinished.
