In true 80's fashion, the Garbage Pail Kids took aim at Cabbage
Patch dolls. The line started out as trading sticker cards
created by Topps and released in 1985. Each card featured
a different Garbage Pail Kid that had some humorous abnormality
or deformity, and each had a comical name like Adam Bomb,
Half-Nelson, Patty Putty, Mad Donna, Sumo Sid, and more.
By the 2010's, these had a bit
of a resurgence, with action figures, t-shirts, and new cards
available which parodied contemporary subjects. It is
worth mentioning that in 1987, a cartoon was created based on
the series, and due to its controversial themes, it was aired in
Europe and not in the USA.
