Bolero is a 1984 American romantic drama film starring Bo Derek, and written and directed by her husband John Derek. The film centers on the protagonist's sexual awakening and her journey around the world to pursue an ideal first lover who will take her virginity. Bolero was the film that dissolved the distribution deal between Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, then known at the time as MGM/UA Communications, and Cannon Films, over the potentially X-Rated material in the film. MGM had the then-current rule of not releasing X-Rated material theatrically. Cannon parted ways with MGM shortly before the release of Bolero, and Cannon Films became an in-house film production and distribution company once again.

Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez. The show premiered on Nickelodeon on March 30, 2001. The series involves an extraterrestrial named Zim who originates from a planet called Irk, and his ongoing mission to conquer and destroy Earth. His various attempts to subjugate and destroy the human race are invariably undermined by some combination of his own ineptitude, his malfunctioning robot servant GIR, and a young paranormal investigator named Dib, one of the very few people attentive enough to be aware of Zim's identity.nInvader Zim was targeted at children in their early teens, and met with critical acclaim, but after the first season, the series began to receive criticism from parents, due to the violence depicted. Before the second season was completed, Nickelodeon cancelled the series, leaving at least twenty-three episodes and a planned television movie series finale unfinished. The show has maintained a cult following since the series' cancellation with a pilot, forty-six aired episodes, and about seventeen episodes that were in production around the time the series was cancelled.
