  • An alien named Zim from the planet Irk is sent on a secret mission to conquer Earth, not realising that his leaders were just trying to get rid of him and hoped that he would die. Once there, Zim manages to disguise himself as a human child, but one boy named Dib sees through his disguise.

  • Invader ZIM is an eccentric alien soldier from the planet Irk. He was banished from the Irken Empire after nearly destroying his home planet on an early mission. After begging his superiors, the Almighty Tallest Red and Purple, for another chance, they decide to get rid of him once and for all. They trick him into going on a "secret mission" to an obscure planet at the edge of the universe, a planet with the unlikely name of Earth. Their trick works, and now ZIM is intent on bringing down the human race. He disguises himself as a schoolboy, and now the only person who can stop him is one kid - Dib Membrane, a somewhat insane paranormal researcher, who sees straight through ZIM's disguise and is intent on stopping his reign of terror. But neither ZIM nor Dib is very good at their job, and what results is everything imaginable, from a giant hamster destroying the city to both ZIM and Dib being turned into bologna meat.

  • The universe's greatest threat, the Irken Empire, is slowly taking over the known universe through, as it seems, sheer dumb luck. An Irken Invader (Ex-Invader, actually), ZIM, who single-handedly destroyed an entire military operation in his past, has returned to his leaders, begging for another chance to give himself a good name. They do- sort of. Actually, they just send him on a joke mission to get him out of the way. They pretend to see his worth, give him a junk robot, and send him off, hoping he'll die on the way. To their surprise, he lives, and actually finds a planet to devastate, which is-what a surprise-Earth. However, he has landed in the wrong place. A paranormal investigator, Dib, has seen through his disguise, and is hot on his trail. It sounds like an average alien story, but it ain't. Did we mention Dib is ten years old, and considered stupid or crazy (though clearly not) by many of his peers? And that ZIM isn't the best invader in the world? Or that neither of them is very good at stopping each other? Or that this show will have you rolling on the floor laughing? If you can get your hands on the Nicktoons channel or the DVDs, you may as well find out...

  • Zim is an alien from the planet Irk, where social hierarchy is determined by how tall one is, rather than any type of skill or intelligence. Since Zim is one of the shortest people on Irk (and incompetent to boot), the Almighty Tallest send him on a fake mission to a planet which they don't think even exists and hope that he will die. Much to their surprise Zim finds a planet called Earth and disguises himself as an ordinary human in order to gather information about Earth. Only Dib, an aspiring paranormal investigator, realizes that Zim is an alien.
