Invader Zim is a cartoon created by Jhonen Vasquez that debuted in 2001. It was cancelled in 2002, partway through production of the second season. It was rebooted as a fairly successful comic book series in July 2015 and has been ongoing ever since. A made-for-tv revival movie, Enter The Florpus, has been in the works for some time.


Gir was particularly popular as a character in merchandise, and has an expy in "Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt", an anime.


The way the ship names work in the Invader Zim fandom is generally: Initial+a+Initial+F/R. For example, the romantic pairing of Zim and Dib is ZaDR, and the platonic pairing of the same two is ZaDF.

Gaz, Tak, Dib, and Zim are the most commonly paired characters in the show.
