'Invader Zim' Actor, Creator Angry About 'SMITE' Recasting the Character's Voice

Invader Zim is headed to SMITE, but voice actor Richard Horvitz and series creator Jhonan Vasquez are upset with the character's recasting.


Popular MOBA SMITE recently announced a massive crossover with Nickelodeon, featuring a handful of iconic Nickelodeon characters, including the title character from Invader Zim. Unfortunately, much to the dismay of original Zim voice actor Richard Horvitz and series creator Jhonen Vasquez, the role of Zim has been handed to a new performer.

Shortly after the SMITE x Nickelodeon trailer released, Horvitz took to Twitter to inform fans that the voice of Zim in the game was not his own, and that SMITE developers Hi-Rez Studios and Titan Forge games had made the decision to move forward with non-union actors, in Zim's case, Andrew Russell. Horvitz expressed his own discomfort and disdain for the decision, calling it "offensive" and "disrespectful."


In response to Horvitz's post, Invader Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez chimed in with his own take on the situation, saying "ZIM finally gets a voice in games and it’s not his actual voice??" Vasquez's frustration is echoed by many of the replies to his post.


Despite vocal protest from Horvitz, Vasquez and many Invader Zim fans, the character's original voice will not be appearing in SMITE. Horvitz did have a chance to return to the iconic character in 2019's Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus, a Netflix-exclusive animated film which acts as an epilogue to the original series, which ended in 2006. Despite receiving wide acclaim from critics and fans alike, a sequel to Enter the Florpus hasn't been announced, and the television series shows no signs of returning.

Horvitz also lent his voice to Zim in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. While the title launched without voice acting, a post-launch content update added voice lines for most of the characters, and, unlike SMITE, NASB brought back many of its characters' respective original voice actors.

SMITE is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, macOS and Microsoft Windows. The SMITE x Nickelodeon collaboration will release on July 12, 2022. The crossover will feature Nickelodeon-themed skins for several characters, and it will be available on all platforms.

MATTEL, NICKELODEON AND PARAMOUNT+ DEBUT TRAILER FOR MONSTER HIGH: THE MOVIE, LIVE-ACTION MUSICAL PREMIERING THURSDAY, OCT. 6

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. and HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—June 30, 2022--Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAT), Nickelodeon and Paramount+ today revealed the premiere date and trailer for Monster High: The Movie, a live-action movie musical based on the iconic Monster High franchise about the children of famous monsters and creatures. Monster High: The Movie premieres Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon and streams that same day on Paramount+. The movie will encore on Nickelodeon on Friday, Oct.7, and Saturday, Oct. 8, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). Internationally, the movie will premiere on Nickelodeon and Paramount+, beginning Oct. 6.


Monster High: The Movie follows Clawdeen Wolf (Miia Harris, Just Beyond), who was born half human and half werewolf, after she arrives at her new school, Monster High. She quickly makes friends with her classmates Frankie Stein (Ceci Balagot, Dispatches from Elsewhere) and Draculaura (Nayah Damasen, Grey's Anatomy), and for the first time in her life, Clawdeen feels like she has finally found a place where she fits in and can truly be herself, despite keeping her human half a secret. When a devious plan to destroy Monster High threatens to reveal her real identity, Clawdeen must learn to embrace her true monster heart and find a way to save the day alongside her new friends.

Monster High: The Movie also stars: Case Walker (The Other Two) as Deuce Gorgon; Kyle Selig (Mean Girls on Broadway) as Mr. Komos; Marci T.

Additional fan-favorite characters from the Monster High universe will also be seen throughout the movie.

In addition to Monster High: The Movie, an animated series based off the beloved Mattel franchise is slated to premiere later this year on Nickelodeon. Both projects join other Mattel Television content in production, including series and specials based on Barbie, Masters of the Universe, Thomas & Friends, Polly Pocket, Pictionary and Fireman Sam, to name a few. Mattel first introduced Monster High in 2010, and it quickly became one of the most successful and beloved kids’ properties of all time. The franchise seeks to foster a more accepting world where everyone is proud to be their authentic self, which is more relevant than ever. Today, Monster High is back with a reimagined set of fangtastic characters, inspired by the original ghouls, for a new generation that embraces what makes them unique and rallies people everywhere to express themselves.


Monster High: The Movie is directed and executive produced by Todd Holland (The Real O'Neals, Malcolm in the Middle, Firehouse Dog).

From Creator Mike Judge and MTV Entertainment Studios, the Movie Features Beavis and Butt-Head’s First On-Screen Appearance in More Than 10 Years

Full Library of Over 200 Remastered “Beavis and Butt-Head” Episodes to Stream Exclusively on the Service


June 2, 2022 – Paramount+ today announced that its upcoming original movie BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE will premiere on the service Thursday, June 23, marking the duo’s first on-screen appearance in more than 10 years. The movie will also be available to stream internationally in all territories where the service is available. In addition to the new movie, the full library of over 200 remastered “Beavis and Butt-Head” episodes will stream exclusively on the service, along with a new series coming later this year.

A tale that technically spans two centuries, BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE promises to sit atop all future lists of the Dumbest Science Fiction Movies Ever Made. The saga begins when Beavis and Butt-Head wind up at space camp through “creative sentencing” from a juvenile court judge in 1998. Mistaking a docking simulator for something else (huh huh), Beavis and Butt-Head excel at it and are asked to join the space shuttle mission in a PR move. After ruining the mission, they are left for dead in space and end up going through a black hole and reemerging back on Earth in 2022, only to discover a very different world – and find themselves considered Buttholes of Interest by the NSA, the governor of Texas, and a highly intelligent version of themselves from a parallel universe. Also they almost lose their virginity, but don’t.

“Beavis and Butt-Head were defining voices of a generation, and to this day, the show is one of the most well-known and beloved animated IPs of all time,” said Chris McCarthy, president/CEO, Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios. “Mike Judge has reimagined this dynamic duo in a way that is sure to have both old fans and new ones alike laughing out loud – and we couldn’t be more excited to bring them back into our rapidly expanding arsenal of hit adult animation.”

“Reuniting Beavis and Butt-Head is the smartest dumb move one could make, and we jumped at the opportunity,” said Tanya Giles, chief programming officer of streaming for Paramount+. “Only a duo this iconic would bring us to space and back and we’re so excited to share their epic, nacho-filled journey with audiences.”

BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE features the voices of Mike Judge, Gary Cole, Chris Diamantopoulos, Nat Faxon, Brian Huskey, Chi McBride, Tig Notaro, Stephen Root, Andrea Savage, Martin Starr and Jimmy O. Yang.

An exclusive look at the new movie will debut during the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which air live Sunday, June 5, at 8PM, ET/PT.

Created and voiced by writer, producer and director Mike Judge, the characters of Beavis and Butt-Head originated in Judge’s 1992 short film “Frog Baseball,” which was broadcast by MTV’s animation showcase “Liquid Television.” After MTV commissioned a full series around the characters, “Beavis and Butt-Head” ran for seven seasons from March 8, 1993, to Nov. 28, 1997. The series was revived in 2011 with an eighth season airing on MTV. During its initial run, “Beavis and Butt-Head” received widespread critical acclaim for its satirical, scathing commentary on society. The show’s popularity spawned various related media, including the theatrical film “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America” in 1996.

BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE is executive-produced by Mike Judge, Lew Morton and Michael Rotenberg, and Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Ben Kalina, and Antonio Canobbio for Titmouse.

Nickelodeon UK Premieres 'Rock Island Mysteries'

Puzzles, Problem Solving And Preteen Adventures. Rock Island Mysteries To Make A Splash in the U.K. & Ireland

Brand New Australian Series, Rock Island Mysteries Premieres This July on Nickelodeon UK & Ireland


Shot on the sun-drenched beaches and jungle-like hinterlands of Australia’s Gold Coast, Rock Island Mysteries (20 episodes) is a mystery drama comedy series that follows the adventures of 14-year-old Taylor and her friends as they explore the secrets of the beautiful and mysterious Rock Island.

Produced by Fremantle Media, the new teen series will premiere on Nickelodeon UK & Ireland on Monday 4th July 2022 at 5:30pm.


Featuring a diverse main cast anchored by Australian leads, the series follows the adventures of Taylor Young (Alexa Curtis), a charismatic and energetic leader, and her tight-knit group of friends – Nori Harlow (Noah Akhigbe), Meesha Rai (Inessa Tan), Ellis Grouch (Ryan Yeates) and step-sister Lila Gray (Izellah Connelly) – as they explore the mysteries of the island on which they live, fuelled by Taylor’s fascination with her Uncle Charlie’s disappearance, and determination to find out what happened to him. Joining the young cast are adults Kimberley Joseph, Craig Horner, Monette Lee, Annabelle Stephenson, and Lucas Linehan.

Every episode sees the gang tackle a new mystery, spurred on by Taylor’s irrepressible desire to uncover the inexplicable side of the Island and the true whereabouts of Uncle Charlie.


A tight and sometimes chaotic team of contrasting personalities, the gang are all drawn into Taylor’s quests, each member bringing something unique to the mix, be it Nori’s witty and rational practicality, Meesha’s gutsy, never-say-die attitude, Ellis’ book smarts and technical know-how, or sassy Lila’s loyal and sisterly devotion to Taylor.

Rock Island Mysteries | Brand New Show, FULL EPISODE! | Nickelodeon UK


Rock Island Mysteries, starts Monday 4th July @ 5:30pm on Nickelodeon! 📺

Happy Birthday Taylor: On Taylor’s 14th birthday she receives a locked chest from her Uncle Charlie, who has been missing for five years! When the chest starts ticking, Taylor and her friends realise they must find a way to open it, or the contents will be destroyed.

"Taylor and her group of friends are living what seems to be the perfect island life with sun-soaked beaches and jungle-like hinterlands. But underneath that perfect facade lies a hotbed of cryptic riddles, thrilling legends, and unexplainable mysteries waiting to be unravelled. Fuelled by her fascination with her Uncle Charlie’s disappearance five years earlier, Taylor is the determined leader in pursuit of the truth. Alongside Taylor, there’s Nori, a wisecracking rebel who’s got an answer for everything; Meesha, a toughas-nails sports nut who’s up for anything; Ellis, a hypochondriac who’s the brains of the group; and Taylor’s stepsister Lila, an aspiring vlogger who adores her older sister. With a determination to leave no stone unturned, the five best friends jump head first into a series of intriguing mysteries and nail-biting adventures through ancient caves, remote islands and eerie jungles."


Rock Island Mysteries was previously announced as Taylor’s Island and is a Fremantle Media production for Paramount Australia and Nickelodeon International, with major production funding from Screen Australia and support from Screen Queensland. The series was produced at Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast.

Rock Island Mysteries made its global premiere in Australia on Monday, 2 May at 5pm on 10 Shake and 10 Play. The series then debuted across Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand on Monday 6th June 2022 and will broadcast to global audiences on Nickelodeon International later in the year.
