An often random children's show created by Jhonen Vasquez
, the force behind such great comics as Jhonny the Homocidal Maniac
. It centered around a green alien named Zim
who was sent out on a phony mission by his leaders The Tallest
to conquer Earth along with a reject robot named GiR
. The series lasted only 38 episodes despite the large fanbase and hillarity of the show. Several rumors have been circulating about the show's cancelation, such as an older target audience and a lawsuit by parents after their children read Johnny the Homocidal Maniac
, a book Jhonen
did not intend for younger audiences.
