Zim is spying on the other Invaders, checking on their progress via a massive telescope, when static appears on-screen instead of the desired Invader. Zim summons GIR only to find that GIR did not do anything to the telescope. Then various earthquakes begin on Earth, breaking his telescope, and Zim attempts to find out why. He first tries using Dib’s giant telescope, but Dib won’t let him. So he has no choice but to set off in his Voot Cruiser. He says something about adjusting the Cruiser’s G-Force compensators before rocketing off of the surface of Earth at ridiculous speeds. He is only stopped when they hit what turns out to be a giant TV screen, and discovers that the planet is being stolen by the Planet Jackers, aliens who use planets (like the Earth) as kindling for their dying sun. After failing to persuade them to leave the planet for his conquest, Zim goes about stealing the planet back and is eventually successful. The citizens of Earth have no idea what was happening (although the “sky” inside of the capturing shell appears to pulse) and the Planet Jackers never realize that they lost the Earth. This is the first episode that Zim saved the human race, though he said that he saved it just so he can destroy it.
Zim is experimenting one day when Dib tries to sneak into his base in a ceramic squirrel costume. Zim sees through this disguise and kicks him out, but not before learning that Dib has found a weakness in his security system. This is confirmed by a pizza boy walking straight through his robotic guard gnomes and delivering a pizza. Zim goes inside, pondering the flaw, when GIR eats the pizza and then jumps on Zim, covering him in grease. This causes Zim to get a zit. GIR enjoys the zit very much and draws a little face on it, which Zim fears will make him stick out even more. After the zit grows he discovers that its motion has hypnotic powers so for a little test he uses it on GIR which hypnotizes him. Zim takes a little body from his GEARS/CIRCUITS/HEADLESS BODIES box and attaches it to the zit, which he names Pustulio and passes off as a friend. Zim uses this hypnotic (albeit disgusting) zit to gain control of the school children, and then forces Dib into revealing the weakness in Zim’s base defenses. At that point the pimple grows even further to monstrous proportions and explodes; Zim then leaves to reinforce his base’s defenses to remove the weakness, while Dib is forced to clean up the mess with a tiny sponge.
