they cancelled it because they tought it was to dark for kids lake when zim swapps organs with kids and gives that kid new eye balls. but really its not that dark and its even more popular than ever now, i wish they would bring it back, but i found out what would happen in the last eppisode i got a commic explaining it.

zim tells dib to look behind him and when dib looks back he concers the whole world and hes sitting on a giant thrown and hes king of the earth. then he says hes bored with earth and asks dib if he wants to go with him into space to drick sugary space sodas and ride giant space bunnys. din thinks about it and says yesand then theyre friends.

ill really not making that up its what would have happened in the last eppisode, ith creator wrote a coomic for it.

On the Volume 3 DVD on the commentary for "The Most Horrible X-Mas Ever", the creator said he was tired of making Invader Zim.

The creator Jhonen Vasquez was tired of making it?

God your spelling sucks...

Wikipedia has this to say about all that:
Quote:
The show was cancelled due to its ratings and its dark tone and the violence in the show.

Also, it wasn't meant for kids. Just like South Park, it was meant to be
Quote:
an animated television series that would capture an older audience.

Think high-school and young college students.

Another reason might be that:
Quote:
Despite the show's popularity and extended fanbase ranging from kids to adults, the show was axed after the 9/11 tragedy. It was believed that a show featuring a megalomaniacal alien attempting to destroy the world was 'too sensitive a subject' to be showing after the 9/11 attacks. Supposedly the 9/11 tragedy was cited by Nickelodeon as the primary reason why the show was cut.

^ I do remember the mentioning of all that.

Ah, well, at I've got the whole madness on DVD. (I like madness.)

Now, thanks to the knowledge of some of Vasquez's other works, I can find little hints of references here and there, like in "Dark Harvest," where in the beginning, you see the rabbit ("Fillerbunny") in his container.

Chicken Man, where did you find the "last story" comic? Now, I'm curious.

After the series's cancellation, Jhonen Vasquez did a four-page comic for the Nickelodeon Magazine.

I liked Invader Zim, I don't watch TV too much and maybe Brazil won't show it either or only show older episodes.
I liked the cartoon, I stoped because one day I had a dream with Zim, I didn't fall in love with him, he's cute but crazy. :P
The people from my country are so stupid that they don't like this cartoon, they really sucks! :P

What do Keanu Reeves, Anakin Skywalker and Kenny have in commom? They're the chosen one.

2007: 30 years for Star Wars and 10 years for South Park!

No problem, Angus...
The comic was strange, but I guess that's what Zim is all about

^ Heck, that's what Vasquez is all about!

Maybe you can help me with this: I have the Special Features disc with what they say are the "Unseen Seconds" to the "Horrible X-mas" ep, but I cannot tell the difference for the life of me. What's different?

Well, I don't have the Special Features disk, but I searched around the web and someone said that the background music in some scenes were different, Zim's voice during his speech was different, and a very quick scene of "45" being crushed that was cut.
Who's 45?
