* ShoutOut: When a kid catches David talking to another character and his pet Mangler, David tells him it's just a video game, "Mangler Trilogy." Given the Manglers' resemblance to [[Franchise/{{Alien}} certain other aliens]], it's likely a reference to the ''VideoGame/AlienTrilogy'' game.

Added DiffLines:

* HeyItsThatVoice: Simon is [[WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}} Lexington]], General Konrad is [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Spock]], and the Dragit is [[{{Reboot}} Megabyte]]. Also, David is Michelangelo from the fourth TMNT movie.



* HoYay: Gordon and Lomack had some moments of this.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: To date, the show has never gotten an official recorded release of any kind. It's only still available on torrent sites and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2L--XVQmNF0&list=PLlaKNOFiY3rFLzVdAK_-kAVo4at_meQxc Youtube]] because of fan loyalty and cult-hit status.

Created by Creator/StevenSpielberg, this prime-time animated TV drama, produced by Creator/DreamWorks, was an {{animesque}} {{miniseries}} about [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aliens invading America]]. It wasn't particularly popular with audiences. ''Invasion America'' was created primarily to cash in on the late-1990s paranormal craze that ''Series/TheXFiles'' created.

The story of ''Invasion America'' begins in the early [[TheEighties 1980s]] with Cale-Oosha, the ruler of Tyrus, looking into his uncle's project with Earth, believing it to be a plan to establish peaceful contact with humanity. However, his uncle, The Dragit, claims that their dying planet ought to invade Earth, conquer the bellicose humans, and take hold of its resources. Cale refuses and a civil war breaks out.

Cale and his bodyguard/trainer/trusted friend Rafe escape to the Utah desert where Cale is rescued by Rita Carter, a human woman, who guides the Tyrusians through human living and becomes a LoveInterest for Cale. After a few years of hiding on Earth, Cale returns to Tyrus to lead the loyalist forces (the Ooshati) that have organized, leaving Rita and their young son, David, under Rafe's protection.
