Episodes that never were

I've been reading a little bit about the episodes that were in production or were planned for production during the time that Invader Zim was canceled. They were coming up with pretty good stuff and I strongly believe that if the show had not been canceled, it would've only gotten better.

Here's a description of one of the episodes that was never finished called "Simon Sez Doom:"
Mr. Elliot, Gaz's teacher, is running an orphanage care program. Zim joins it so as to take advantage of the game "Simon says" by telling the orphans to destroy the Earth. Dib joins the program to figure out what Zim's doing. He manages to save the city from the orphans, end the game of "Simon says" and almost blows up the orphanage by leaving the diaper-changing machine unattended.
Unfortunately, Invader Zim as we all know it is forever lost. When asked if they would come back if the show ever came on air again, about half of the cast said no. Invader Zim would never be the same again, even if they did bring it back. So sad.

  1. As long as Zim kept the same voice actor, I could live with the other voice actors changing. However, if Zim's voice changed...

  5. What Could Have Been is always sad. I'm bummed that Jhonen would probably not want to return to Zim anyway even if Nick gave him the rights. Would have been interesting to see what he could have done on his own considering the fanbase is... age-appropriate for his usual fare now, shall we say.
