Not all was lost, though. Its was the sudden and unexpected unemployment that convinced the show's art director, [[Creator/BryanKonietzko Bryan Konietzko]], to develop a show with [[Creator/MichaelDanteDimartino his old college friend]]. As such, from ''Zim'''s ashes emerged Nickelodeon's powerhouse series ''AvatarTheLastAirbender''.

This "alien invasion" attracts elementary school student Dib, a self-styled paranormal investigator just itching to expose something strange and weird. And ZIM seems just the alien to expose...

Early episodes followed a basic format -- Zim would attempt to get rid of Dib and conquer the world, while Dib would attempt to expose ZIM, only for both to discover that FailureIsTheOnlyOption. Later episodes sometimes used a {{Snapback}} to do all sorts of bizarre things unrelated to the plot, and developed into a StoryArc over time as well. Ultimately, the efforts of Vasquez and head writer [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Frank Conniff]] developed into an idiosyncratic, [[WorldOfHam hammy]], and [[SatireParodyPastiche satirical]] style.

Set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, this dark, {{Cyberpunk}}ish show starred ZIM, an Irken Invader. He's sent by the [[LargeAndInCharge Almighty Tallest]] to take over Earth (see: [[ReassignedToAntarctica shipped off here because he screwed up on his last invasion attempt]]). They just want to get rid of him, but ZIM doesn't know this, [[SmallNameBigEgo nor is he likely ever to find out]]. In fact, the Irkens aren't even sure there's a planet here; they just want ZIM gone ''that badly'', given that he [[PersonOfMassDestruction destroys all that he touches.]] He is ineptly aided in this "mission" by a defective robot assistant named GIR, badly disguised as a dog.
