Invader ZIM - Doom Doom Doom (Vol. 1)

Invader Zim is one of the most intelligent and entertaining cartoons ever made. Sadly removed to early from the air before it could peak. Why Nickelodeon decided to cancel this and not move it to it’s sister network MTV is beyond me. I actually originally bought this on DVD and enjoyed it so much that I purchased it again on Amazon instant video. I can’t begin to explain how good this show is. Check it out!

Product description Comic book artist Jhonen Vasquez’s outr?© sci-fi spoof, which ran on Nicktoons at Night from March 2001 to December 2002, remains the object of a vociferous cult following. Pressure from the fans compelled Nickelodeon to resume production of “Invader Zim” twice before the show was cancelled permanently. The title character is a zealous, none-too-bright agent from the Irken Empire posing a human boy. Zim imagines he’s gathering vital information for the imminent conquest of Earth; the Irken leaders actually sent him here to get rid of him. With the rather spotty assistance of Gir, his robot sidekick disguised as a dog, Zim alternately sneers at humanity and gets himself into trouble. The only person who recognizes Zim as an alien is his UFO-obsessed classmate, Dib.n The two-disc set is loaded with extras that will delight fans of the show, including commentaries by Vasquez and several of the story and voice artists, a second “commentary” of pigs grunting, subtitles in Irken, and the original pilot for the series. The uninitiated may find “Invader Zim” suggests a cross between “Dexter’s Laboratory” and “Jimmy Neutron” re-imagined by Tim Burton. The bizarre designs, over-the-top vocal performances, and bodily function jokes are not for the faint-hearted, but they’re not supposed to be. (Unrated, suitable for ages 10 and older: cartoon violence, gross humor) “–Charles Solomon” Comic book artist Jhonen Vasquez’s outré sci-fi spoof, which ran on Nicktoons at Night from March 2001 to December 2002, remains the object of a vociferous cult following.

Invader ZIM – Doom Doom Doom (Vol. 1) Review

 

You want the best Nickelodeon show ever created, here it is. Sadly we don’t get widescreen or anything, but hey, its just that old. Man I miss this being on Netflix. But I am still happy to finally own this series -Read Reviews-

Beyond funny. I grew up in the 90’s so didn’t watch this on tv in the early 2000’s. We bought this dvd from blockbuster when they were closing. It only came with one disc though. My son scratched it up pretty badly so had to buy a replacement. My favorite episodes are Doom Doom and Germs. I’m germophobic and my partner and I get a good laugh out of those episodes because that’s basically how I am. It makes me wonder if the maker (Jhonen) is a little germophobic himself. I highly recommend watching for a good laugh. My 4 year old loves this cartoon, especially GIR.
