Oh man, if you have never watched an episode of Invader Zim, I recommend you run right out and do so. This was a short-lived Nickelodeon cartoon that was cancelled in its second season, but later received the critical acclaim and cult following that it deserves. They still show episodes on Nicktoons, but unless you’re up at 6 am on a Wednesday morning…well then I guess you better set your TiVo. Sometimes I love technology.

My favorite part of the show is not Zim himself, but his half-witted robot dog, Grr. Quite probably because he reminds me of myself, only half listening to anything Zim says because he’s too busy thinking about bacon. Or cupcakes. Or pizza. This clip is a classic example of Grr’s constant attempts to make food a part of each of life’s many details.
