I've been wanting to cover more classic cartoons lately and Invader Zim was the perfect choice. The lore and science of that show fascinates me. There is so much we can dive into that it was hard to limit myself to one thing, but for you, Theorists, I will do my best. Today we are going to uncover the SECRET ALIEN hiding in plain sight. No, I don't mean Zim. I am talking about DIB!

      @CNE Official It doesn't really cost that much though. I'll never understand how it cost millions per episode when people on youtube and independent are doing such animations and stuff sometimes better by themselves. Makes no sense.

    I have a theory about Miss bitters being tallest spork. Tallest spork was known for his small eyes amongst the empire, and Miss bitters wears glasses. Possibly to cover up the fact that she's a alien? Its confirmed in one of the comics that miss bitters is not a human, maybe she's a irken?

    On the nose and the ear part well probably the people who drew the show or animated I don't know probably didn't want the dad or whatever to have a nose and ears maybe because they didn't draw him with a nose probably they didn't do that because well his mask thing is way too close up to his face and in the end of the goggles are probably where his ears are!

    Honestly, I do think membrane and Dib are aliens, but not Gaz. She’s an android! Think about it: She Dosent obey anyone but membrane. When she got wet when Dib splashed water on her and Zim, she looked like it hurt her. Robots are affected by water. Why do you think he wanted Dib to go with her to the mall? He didn’t want her to get broken. She protects herself, all the time. There was one episode where she was on the elevator, and was trying to get the GS2 from Iggins, and SMASHED AND GLITCHED THE ELEVATOR FROM ONE PUNCH. BUT HEY, THATS JUST A THEORY A FILM THEORY

    Oh my god, matpat is after this theory too?????? Not saying I’m not loving that he’s doing ZIM. I am dying right now. But ya know, he’s actually a clone, the professor that is(and dib). Comics and christmas special prove that he was a young child and stuff like that, and shows that he has parents, and there for extending the theory that the PROFESSOR is a clone, or his MOTHER but defaulted, and has no nose, no ears and so on.

    *What if Earth is the place where they send 'un-behaving', 'tall' or 'made wrong' aliens?* I'm starting to believe the Aliens run tests on all of their race that are born, to make sure they're small, or in the pattern. The ones who aren't are sent to Earth. There, these Aliens recreated, making what is the Human race. Or so what we thought was Human.. Everyone is a “out-of-pattern” Alien on Earth. Some, mostly very old adults, do know that they're from other planet. But they're old, they _forget._ However, every kid or adult knows that they're Aliens. They think they're the Normal. It's like they know they're Aliens, but they don't know about any other type.

    There was one thing I want to say really quick that.... could add on to this....?? If you look at the Tallest, they kind of look like they are wearing robotic suits designed to make them look taller. Other people have said this before, it’s not anything new, but I was thinking as I was watching the video that if Professor Membrane *was* Irken, maybe he was the one who designed the suits for the Tallest, so they decided to get rid of him just in case he decided to spill the secret to the rest of Irken society. In “Enter the Florpus” Professor Membrane has robotic arms (I think somewhere someone said he also had robotic legs?? I’d have to go look and edit this comment if I find it) which he may have made to make him taller then Purple and Red, and when they found out they exiled him to earth.

    Well I do agree with this theory but there is just one thing that is probably wrong, Membrane is not a tallest if he was the tallest that are in charge would give them another job & once the current tallest die or something happened to them the highest rank would become the new tallest, in the show you can see some urkins that are taller than the invaders. It does not make sense if membrane was a tallest.
