Editorial Reviews

The Irken armada is poised to conquer the universe, but it would be a lot easier without Invader Zim! Thickheaded, brash, and overzealous, Zim has wrecked Irken plans for the last time. Seizing the opportunity to rid themselves of this nuisance forever, they send Zim on a "secret" mission to a planet far away on the edge of the universe-Earth. Now Earth's only hope rests with a young UFO-hunting paranormal enthusiast named Dib.

Customer Reviews

It's really hard to go wrong by buying this box set.
Megarat
Like many of Nick's toons, there are a lot of jokes that adults will find funny, and of course Gir is just hilarious and can make anyone laugh.
Dominique
If you like random cartoons, you may find this one, like I did, the best you've ever seen.

As this listing is very misleading, here's the deal: This is the whole Invader Zim series, each of those 3 volumes they are selling individually for higher prices. MUCH BETTER DEAL! Buy this, and then if you want the house box, buy it separately, and you get the bonus disc and the Gir figure. You will end up paying about half the price of what they sell for all together. It pays to shop around.

Some people have complained that this DVD set is not a good value for the money. I would like to advise these reviewers to stop smoking crack.

My justification: this DVD set contains 27 episodes, about 23 minutes long apiece. That's over 10 hours of top-notch content for sixteen bucks (not counting commentary and special features). A typical movie is two hours for the same price, if you're lucky.

In "Invader Zim"'s case, the value comes in at pennies per laugh.

This DVD set is money all the way; it's the entire "Invader Zim" series in a single package, and it's extremely well done. The picture is great, the sound is great, and (if you're into this sort of thing) there's a wealth of commentary and extras. It's a near-perfect production. If you like "Invader Zim", you should pick up this box set forthwith; anything less would be corporal punishment.

(Plus, if you buy the "complete invasion" 3-volume set, you are getting the "uncut" Christmas episode, unlike the earlier versions of the DVDs that were sold individually, volume-by-volume.)

That said, "Invader Zim" isn't for everyone. If you've never seen it before, download an episode via Amazon or iTunes and give it a gander. It's weird, dark and terrific, with layers of details that come out with repeated viewings.

It's really hard to go wrong by buying this box set. It especially makes a great gift; at this price, you can buy box sets all around.

Invader Zim is very worth watching. Zim is an alien (Irken) who is intent upon conquering the Earth, which he believes he's been assigned to do by his home planet. Actually, the people in charge of the alien planet just sent him to Earth, which is to them a piddly nowhere little planet, to get him out of the way because he is such a screw-up.

Zim is completely unaware of the fact that everyone regards him as a screw-up, and is very fanatical about his quest to conquer Earth.

Zim has a goofy sidekick robot named Gir who was taken out of the garbage and given to him when they sent him on his "quest" to conquer Earth. Gir is a hilarious character, and is part of what makes theseries so great (he reminds me very much of my cat, I think I would've named her Gir if I had seen any episodes of Zim before I got her).

There is one person in the whole universe besides Zim who actually takes his quest to conquer Earth seriously, and that is his nemesis, Dib. Dib is a human boy who is obsessed with aliens, and he is the only person who realizes Zim is an alien. Dib tries to tell everyone that Zim is an alien but no one believes him, so he singlehandedly tries to thwart all of Zim's plots. It always backfires on him, and Zim's plots always fail anyway.

The artist who wrote and drew the series is Jhonen Vasquez, who was known before Invader Zim, for the "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac" (JTHM) and "Squee" comic book series. Invader Zim is more than just a comedy, the artwork is great and every episode is full of Vasquez's characteristic dark, subtle mockery of all the stupid things about society.

I think Invader Zim was excellently done and deserved a longer life than the less-than-a-year it was given on Nickelodeon.

This is no doubt the crown jewel of animation. I absolutely love this show and Nickelodeon sucks for not continuing the series. These cartoons are timeless and I can watch them over and over and they still make me laugh. Like many of Nick's toons, there are a lot of jokes that adults will find funny, and of course Gir is just hilarious and can make anyone laugh. As far as the DVD set, this is the complete set with all 6 discs of the series at a great price. You can buy the house box separately which comes with the special features disc not available on its own. It has some OK stuff but only necessary if you are a hardcore fan. This 6 disc set is really all you need, it's awesome and contains the entire series. Enjoy, filthy humans!

This really is a "you know who you are" product. I've you've already seen and like Invader Zim or other works from Johan Vasquez, the box set has all the episodes in the entire series on DVD for your viewing pleasure, at an incredibly low cost-per-laugh.

If you haven't watched Invader Zim before, it is a comedy cartoon very much in the same vein as Ren and Stimpy, but more frantic and with less innuendo. It makes extensive comedic use of hyperbole, commercial stereotypes, and heavy cultural satire. Grab a few episodes somewhere to see if you like it.

Either way, having established that you like Invader Zim, buy this if you want to watch it more than once. This is the full box set of the series with everything expected from a box set; good DVD quality video, standard extras; commentary, scenes, specials, etc. Like basically all series DVD collections, if you didn't like it in the first place, the set probably won't change your mind, but if you do like it, pick the set up to have it all.

did anyone else have a glitch?
I never experienced any difficulties. Some of the commentary only works on specific episodes though.

Also, the last episode on Volume 3 is horrible anyway...so you're only missing out on one episode.

Does this release come with the special features on the previous releases?
This contains the three individual volumes together in a slip case with "Complete Invasion" written on it. Everything is the same but packaged together. Amazon says that it includes three disks but it is six, two for each volume. All the cool commentaries, Irken subtitles and extras... Read More
