Synopsis

The Irken empire launches its new plan for world domination...that is until Zim comes into the picture (who just so happened to ruin the last plan). The All Mighty Tallest, mostly to trick him, make Zim an invader and send him off to a planet that doesn't exist, Earth. After six months, Zim finds this Earth planet and blends in with the population. Everything is picture perfect, until this funny looking Earth kid named Dib (who has a freakishly big head) sees through his disguise and tries to warn Earth of the coming alien invasion.
