Garbage Pail Kids

The Garbage Pail Kids was the title of a series of trading cards produced by the Topps Company starting in 1985. The cards parodied the birth certificates included with the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls. Each card contained a picture of a Garbage Pail Kid (such as the baby covered in tattoos named, "Art Gallery" or the vomiting "Heavin' Steven") and came with an "a" or "b" version, each with a different name. Each series of cards also included a few cards that had rare "triplets", meaning a second "a" or "b", for a total of three different names. There were a total of 15 regular series released in the United States with many more sets released in other countries. Two large card editions were released along with a set of posters as well.

The commercial success of the trading cards led to the production of a movie of the same name in 1987. Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie was a financial failure and one of the most universally and vehemently panned films in Hollywood history. There was also a cartoon made that never aired because of parent complaints. The cards themselves continued, although they underwent some redesign when the creator of the Cabbage Patch Kids sued Topps for trademark infringement.

Garbage Pail Kids have made a comeback in recent years thanks to fan sites on the web, and individuals buying/selling them on eBay. Topps even began selling the original art in 2001 with much success.

Wacky Packages/Garbage Pail Kids link

A little-known fact on Garbage Pail Kids, is that it began as an unreleased Wacky Packages title. The management at Topps decided GPK was a good idea for a spinoff series, and released the new series instead of the original Garbage Pail Kids Wacky Pack.
