Day of da Spookies was never made. You can find scripts for it though, so I've posted some quotes and updated the character list for it.
The basic premise of this episode is that Zim
realizes the reason Dib
is a constant problem is because of his paranormal beliefs. Zim
sets out to find a way to make Dib
relinquish his paranormal beliefs - and comes up with the idea of dressing himself, GIR
and Minimoose up as ghosts and having Dib
report them to Mysterious Mysteries. Zim
would then reveal that it was all a fraud and Dib
would be discredited and disheartened…in theory.
In practice, they DID get Dib
to believe they were ghosts and he DID bring in Mysterious Mysteries, but Mysterious Mysteries sent a paranormal expert to examine them to see if they were really ghosts. Zim
managed to get rid of the expert ("GIR
- throw him into space!") but their paranormal expert replacement (Invader Skoodge in a poor costume) wasn't very convincing. In the end GIR
and Minimoose escape, Dib
is discredited but Zim
is put into a ghost bucket for extensive and painful testing.
My Favorite Moments:
I like to see the return of Invader Skoodge
and I think it's funny that he's sent to Earth to get rid of him. I also think it's funny that GIR
throws someone into space.
