Reached its apex in 2017, where he denied rumors that the series would be getting a movie... ''literally hours before Nickelodeon released the trailer''.

* CreativeDifferences: Surprisingly, the Nickelodeon executives actually were (knowingly) very hands-off with the creative process. Character deaths that were originally written were never allowed, though.

* FollowTheLeader: After Invader ZIM hit cult status and became immensely popular with the preteen demographic, many other animated TV shows started turning towards dark and random humor. ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', ''WesternAnimation/CourageTheCowardlyDog'', ''WesternAnimation/TheMisadventuresOfFlapjack'', ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', and ''WesternAnimation/MakingFiends'' are a few examples.

** The Hamstergeddon episode involved Ultra Peepi swaggering down the street, not by intention. It came back from animation that way, and Jhonen loved it and had the composer make funk music to go under it. "I want to hear Music/BarryWhite saying 'Ultra Peepi.'"

** The biggest example of a rumor gone wrong would have to be the once-common, entirely mistaken belief that Vasquez hated working on the show and would never return to it unless he was offered a huge amount of money. It's often attributed to the man himself, but it's more likely that it came from comments by [[http://www.buzzyworld.com/zim/archives/askstevearchives.html#103103 series director]] [[http://www.buzzyworld.com/zim/archives/askstevearchives.html#082803 Steve Ressel]], who has indeed made it clear that he would never return, as he had his own issues with the way things were run. Vasquez does often make disparaging remarks about ''Zim'', but the same way he does about ''everything''--[[JokingMode with his tongue superglued to the inside of his cheek.]] His continued associations with the show (through heavy involvement with the DVDs, working on the comic series, and appearing at fan conventions) have done much to dispel the rumors, not to mention a blog post where he explicitly states that he loves the show and would be happy to work on it again.
