If you were around in the 80s and early 90s, odds are you will remember the Garbage Pail Kids, the gross characters that were a twist on the Cabbage Patch Kids. The characters first appeared as trading cards with gum and a sticker that were so cringe-worthy that they were banned in schools. In 1987 they got their own live-adaption movie which holds an impressive 0% score from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, followed by a tv series. Now, they are back and they are getting a new animated series!
Danny McBride’s (Halloween, Halloween Kills, Halloween Ends) Rough House Pictures and Michael Eisner‘s Tornante Company, which owns the baseball card giant Topps, the original creators of Garbage Pail Kids, are producing the series that Bride will write along with “Solar Opposites” Josh Bycel.
Some of the original characters include Jay Decay, a zombie; Drippy Dan, a doll covered in holes with fluid leaking out; Messy Tessie, who has a massive amount of snot leaking from her nose; Barfin’ Barbara, who is pictured puking into a cooking pot on a stove; Ventilated Vinny, a doll being shot by an execution squad; Peeled Paul, a doll who is peeling off his skin; there’s Ali Gator, part kid, part gator;  There’s also Adam Bomb (pictured above). You get the picture.
We’ll keep you posted as week learn more. In the meantime, here’s a look back at The Garbage Pail Kids movie trailer (which I loved as a kid).
