    The DVDs come to an end with this final volume. For those who haven’t gotten their hands on the unaired episodes, you’re in for a major treat. Here are the episodes on this volume.

    GIR Goes Crazy and Stuff / Dib’s Wonderful Life of Doom
    TAK the Hideous New Girl
    The Most Horrible Xmas Ever
    Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars
    The Girl Who Cried Gnome / Dibship Rising
    Vindicated! / Voting of the Doomed
    Mortos der Soulstealer / ZIM Eats Waffles
    Gaz, Taster of Pork
    The Frycook What Came From All that Space

    But first, here’s a little backstory. ZIM was on the verge of being cancelled by the time the second season was started. The first season ended with TAK, and the first seven episodes of season two were already being animated. Then Nick pulled the plug on the show. But not after one last episode Jhonen proposed to do to end the series with a bang. So, ‘The Most Horrible Xmas Ever,’ which was scheduled to be made near the end of season two, was pushed up and made, thus explaining Minimoose’s unusual appearence. Minimoose did have an introduction, but it was never completed. So ‘Xmas’ aired, and the remaining six completed episodes were shown around the world, but not here in the US. And now, we can finally see them. WATCH Dib conjure up the ancient being Mortos der Soulstealer! MARVEL at the horrible pig girl that is Gaz! GASP at ZIM eating waffles for eleven whole minutes!

    There will be commentary for almost all episodes, and also the animatics of course. But I hope they include some of the artwork, scripts, and other things they had completed for the incomplete season two episodes. There were at least ten that were at least laid out. Four episodes even got recorded: “Return of Keef,” where Keef makes a triumphant return, “Mopiness of Doom,” where Dib tries to do REAL science, “Simon Says Doom,” where ZIM babysits kids, and “Nubs of Doom,” Minimoose’s premier episode. But, these are just things I hope are on the DVD. I didn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up if they’re not.

    This review is from: Invader ZIM – Horrible Holiday Cheer (Vol. 3) (DVD)

    Firstly, Jen down there doesn’t have all the facts straight. Yes, the uncut version of the Christmas episode was not on the disc, but it wasn’t just some rumor spread by fanboys. It was actually supposed to be on the disc, and it’s on the description on the back of the DVD box. However, because of a mixup at Media Blasters, they accidentally put the wrong episode on the disc. I hear they’re trying to fix the problem.

    Anyway, on to the DVD. This one was probably the best volume of the three. The unaired Season 2 episodes, along with my personal favorite episode The Frycook What Came From All That Space, are on the disc, as well as the Season 1 Finale and, of course, the Christmas episode. Unlike the previous 2 volumes, all the episodes on this volume have commentary on them. The commentary for this volume is probably the funniest out of the three as well. On the second disc there’s the interview with the production crew, which interviews Bryan Konietzko, Jason Stiff, Chris Graham, Ian Graham, and Rayfield Angrum. Still no interview with Jhonen Vasquez, which is a disappointment.

    Although Media Blasters made a mistake with the Christmas episode and there was no interview with Jhonen, this DVD volume still deserves 5 stars. Invader Zim is probably the funniest show in existance, and it shows on this volume.
