SPEC Script: Invader Zim

Invader Zim was an animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. It ran for two seasons starting in 2001, but the last completed episode wasn’t aired until 2006.

The show follows the anti-adventures of a would-be alien invader (Zim) his malfunctioning robot (Gir), and the boy who tries to stop him (Dib). The show is consistently dark and surreal, which earned it a loyal cult following and got it canceled relatively quickly.

If you haven’t seen an episode, try an internet search and see what you come up with. The show has been on and off Netflix, and the DVDs are notoriously difficult to find.

My attempt at writing an episode (presented, like the show, in two smaller parts) is below.

The second script involves a minor character that was planned to have more appearances before the show was canceled. Knowing that episode helps, but the relationship should be pretty obvious.
