Not necessarily , Invader Zim was canceled for the following reasons : parents never liked the show and thought it was too dark and violent for children , it didn't attract the age group it was supposed to , ( It was basically made for 9 to 12-year-olds but was liked by teenagers and adults.) , there is a hidden image of GIR covered in blood in some of the episodes , (You can see it clearly in the opening of "Mortos Der Soulstealer".) , Nickelodeon kept making Jhonen Vasquez [ the creator of Invader Zim ] add changes in the episodes and Jhonen became frustrated and quit and it wasn't getting the high ratings from 9 to 12-year-olds .

Bloody Gir IS THE REASON Invader Zim was canceled. I have a file on my laptop that has pictures I took straight from the episodes with him in it.

Nickelodeon cancelled Invader Zim in 2002 . Because in an episode Gir was bloody and Nickelodeon thought that was to vilont and kids thought it was scary. But Invader Zim is back on.

actually, it was cancelled because of complaints from time to time about some of the content, and also, the ratings. It was also cancelled because of the age it was aimed for. People 13-18 years old started watching it. I, myself want invader zim back, to be honest. Nick discovered bloody gir way after the show was cancelled. they also put in bloody gir, because he was supposed to be in "Gir Goes Crazy and Stuff", but they didn't allow it, so they put him in random frames to get back at Nick. That is, if anyone was wondering.

It was kind of like a fun little thing to try to find in each episode. Also, Bloody Gir is NOT the reason why Invader Zim was canceled. It couldn't have been because Nickelodeon found out about it AFTER the show was canceled.

An episode didn't get banned, persay, but when Johnen Vasquez asked to put Bloody GIR on TV, Nick cancelled the whole show :(
