The Nicktoons Network has surrendered to Invader Zim and has been re-airing the episodes. Every time one appears on my DIRECTV guide, I have no choice but to watch it unblinkingly. I even own the Invader Zim Complete Invasion DVD set, and yet I'm compelled to sit there and sing the Doom Song during commercials. It's a sickness, really.
My favorite character is, of course, GIR. C'mon, what nerd wouldn't adore a robot minion disguised as a day-glo green dog? He's just so insanely cute. GIR may even love food more than I. One of his best lines is "Hi floor! Make me a sammich!" The poor mechanical puppy even misses a cupcake after devouring it.
I am happy to report that I am not the only GIR fan on Etsy. Don't these handmade finds make you want to roll around on the floor? YAY!
