Mopiness of Doom

I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Invader Zim, but it’s a great cartoon that was canceled after only 47 episodes. If you’ve never watched any of them before, Volume 1 is available to watch instantly on Netflix. I highly recommend you do so. You won’t be sorry.

Dead Robot shared the below with me, as he knows my love of all things Invader Zim. There was an Invadercon (who knew such a thing existed!) in Atlanta this past weekend where the voice actors read two scripts that had never been animated.

I really love watching voice actors perform. Sometimes one can almost see the character they are voicing come to life in their emotions.

It probably doesn’t help my maturity level in that I tend to make all sorts of squeaky voices myself.

Anyway, here is the reading for “Mopiness of Doom”:

Sadly, it appears the event was attended by a gaggle of pre-teen girls, as that’s about all you can hear in the audience.

Until next time...
