probably becuase it was not an anime, and this is an anime site. it had stupid characters, had a stupid plot, and about 10 episodes before it was canceled.

Hah, yeah no.

Invader Zim has 27 episodes, and was not cancelled due to unpopularity. In fact, it's QUITE popular, but mostly amongst teens and young adults. It was cancelled because Jhonen Vasquez, the creater, did not want to do it anymore. Or so that is what I have heard. But, there was even a petition going around at one point to keep the show going. Nick wanted to keep it, but Vasquez did not. That's why several of the final episodes were not written by him.

The plot and characters are not stupid. See Sponge Bob Squarepants for that. The reason Zim is so popular amongst teens and adults is because it's dark humor, and often times has things that go over kids' heads. There are pointless silly parts in it, yes, but even those actually have a point. Which, I guess, would make them not pointless... Hm.

Jhonen Vasquez did a comic years before Zim called Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. He also did a spin-off of that around the time of Zim's creation called Squee! (and you can see Zim stuff hidden in it, as well as Zim's teacher Ms. Bitters). Another spin-off of JtHM he did was I Feel Sick. All of those share Invader Zim's style of humor, but are just an even darker shade. Invader Zim really isn't a child's show, if one actually takes the time to look at it.

There was another comic Jhonen done that i really liked and that was 'I Feel Sick' have you read that one? Now that's a dark comic for you.

Invader zim isn't anime for a anime post board, it's off topic and had a bad story line to begin with anyway. It's story wasn't straight and it was a complete waste of time.

Hey, you know, Cowboy Bebop's plot wasn't straight, either. It was episodic, much like Zim. And also like Zim, it's incredibly popular. Zim did have an ongoing theme, however... Dib must attempt to stop Zim from destroying humanity. Also: Humanity is comprised of morons. The second was the main theme, I think, despite the "official" theme being more the first.

Please also note that Zim is not Japanese animation, as it is pointed out repeatedly, and even by you, Ukyo. It is American. Being such, it does not follow most of the anime formulas. It follows the American formulas. Most American cartoons are episodic. There's sometimes an ongoing theme, but for the most part they are random and one episode has nothing to do with another episode. It doesn't make them any less than the anime shows. It's just a different form of entertainment. It's a sitcom instead of a soap opera.

Well, I’m a very big fan of Jhonen Vasquez… Johnny the Homicidal manic is a really good comic with thoughtful opinions and a great storyline. Invader Zim I like as well… I really miss it. It was funny in a way that you hardly see… and my favorite character was Dib.

Pages of some little bunny get tortured in many different ways.

Invader Zim hates you, Ninja Hatake Kakashi. So it all works out.

Black Death...yeah. Filler Bunny is adorable. He's actually hidden in one of the Zim episodes, you know. "Dark Harvest," at the very beginning. He's in a jar.

I can't remember the names of the episodes so you're gonna have to like describe some scenes to me. I gotta see that sometime though. Do you know how many Filler Bunny comics there are cause i've only been able to find 2 or is that all there is... Death Muffin?

GAH, this is like the 3rd time its done it now, it doesn't say that i'm the last poster!

Black Death-- Dark Harvest is the episode where Zim keeps stealing peoples organs and replacing them with...stuff. According to slavelabor.com (the publishing company's website), there are two Filler Bunny comics released, but a new one is due this month.

Yes, I think Invader Zim still airs sometimes... It just doesn't have any new episodes. I already explain in a previous post why that is...

rmb199, it's animated and such by Koreans, not Japanese... They talk about it in the extras on the DVDs... Not that this makes it much different from anime, mind you, since most anime is actually animated by Koreans, too....
