Back in March I spent the month doing a blog post a day covering various aspects of the creation of INVADER ZIM, the greatest animation product ever to be called INVADER ZIM.
What people don’t know, but probably suspected, was that the ZIM marathon going on at the same time on NICKTOONS was part of a sinister plan to test the waters for a possible ZIM invasion.
A part of me hates dispelling that freakishly ugly response in a portion of the fandom that seems to thrive on making up their own reasons for why the show ended, but an entry like this kind of makes not doing so impossible.
For a quite some time now, there were rumblings at the network of bringing ZIM back to television with new episodes and such. On my side, it was little bits of information I’d get from friends still working at nickelodeon, people who’d call me up or IM me to speak of an odd little meeting they had with some higher up or other talking about the old show in more than a nostalgic way.
