This has become one of my favorite episodes. Zim
is zooming around in the Voot Cruiser
and runs a policecar off the road while testing it's defensive capabilities. While logging his victory over the cop, the cruiser alerts him to an imminent threat…a bee. Zim
assumes that there must be some error and ignores the warning but when the cruiser hits the bee it goes into a fiery crash dive and crashes in the park. Zim
tries to get a ride from GIR
but he's off dancing at a club so he's forced to walk home. When he comes back the next day to get the cruiser (with a transport cleverly disguised as a giant flying pig balloon) he finds that a group of UFO enthusiasts have found his ship and are milling about. Zim
joins the group but during his initiation the Saucer Morons
find his flying pig (and the Maddness dog) and confiscate those as well. As he tries to get the ship back his disguise falls off…and the UFO enthusiasts herald him as a great and wise being who will bless them (especially the corns on their toes) and give them the answers to the mysteries of the universe. Zim
manages to contact GIR
at this point and GIR
arrives to save him in a giant human-looking robotic suit (I am government man come from the government!) and rescues Zim
by telling the morons that Zim
is an experimental aircraft. The rest of the episode involves a great chase style scene as Zim
ride the flying pig to safety…but they hit the death bee again and crash into yet another UFO convention.
I thought it was funny that Dib
wasn't at either UFO convention.
My Favorite Moments:
I think the whole Death Bee running gag was hilarious as was the piggy ride and government man. It's hard to find anything in this episode that WASN'T hilarious.
