Invader ZIM initially ran on Nickelodeon from 2001-2003 and is still popular with fans to this day. Even though production ceased almost a decade ago, companies still produce new merchandise featuring the cartoon’s characters and fans continue to rave about the artistic merits of the series. Invader ZIM is a phenomenon that evolved into more than “just another kid’s cartoon.”
