Garbage Pail Kids

Garbage Pail Kids
If you were an 80s kid, you might remember these!

-Trading cards
-Company: Topps Corp.

-Released in 1985 to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids
-Each card featured a Garbage Pail Kid having some kind of comical condition, abnormality or fate with humorous name, such as Adam Bomb, Half-Nelson or Sicky Vicky
-There were "a" or "b" cards, featuring the same character, only different name.

-This was the brainchild of cartoonist Art Spiegelman, who worked for Topps, a collector card company.
-He came up with the idea for 'Wacky Packages' and 'Garbage Pail Kids'
-Released in 1985
