On This Day | Invader ZIM Premiered on Nickelodeon

On This Day | Invader ZIM Premiered on Nickelodeon


On this day in 2001, Invader ZIM premiered on Nickelodeon! 18 years of DOOOM!!! Are you excited for the upcoming Invader ZIM movie, "Enter the Florpus"? Let me know in the comments!

Nicktoon Facts: Invader Zim was created by Jhonen Vasquez and premiered on March 30, 2001. It ran for 27 episodes over two seasons on Nickelodeon, winning an Emmy Award and an Annie Award for individual achievement in animation (which went to storyboard artists Kyle Menke and Steve Ressel, respectively). In 2015, it became a comic book created by Vasquez and Oni Press, and a made-for-TV movie titled "Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus" is set to premiere soon on Nickelodeon!

The series chronicles an alien named Zim who arrived on Earth from his home planet of Irk with imperialistic intentions of conquering the planet (in order to gain favor with his Irken home race). Wildly ineffective but hilariously earnest, Zim and his robot companion GIR attempted to blend in and study the human race while simultaneously trying to enslave it. Despite Zim and GIR's subpar disguises, the only humans who realize they are extraterrestrials are school-aged paranormal investigator Dib.
