Garbage Pail Kids
Guy Lochhead, 05/09/10
Trading cards series put out by the Topps Company in 1985, to parody, and profit from, the Cabbage Patch Doll fad. Fifteen series were released in the US, with various sets released in other countries, as well as posters and large format editions. I don’t want to include these. The cards were created by Art Spiegelman originally as part of his Wacky Packages, but were developed into a separate line by Topps. I think this was a bad idea. It’s an average joke spread thinly over fifteen series, lacking the bite of Wacky Packages. It’s good toilet humour, but not worth including.
