Wiki

Garbage Pail Kids ("The Garbage Gang" in Australia & New Zealand, "La Pandilla Basura" or "Basuritas" in Latin America, "Gang do Lixo" in Brazil, and "Les Crados" in France) is a series of trading cards produced by the Topps Company, originally released in 1985 and designed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls created byXavier Roberts, which were immensely popular at the time. Each sticker card featured a Garbage Pail Kid character, with some comical abnormality and/or suffering some terrible fate, and a humorous, word play-rich character name, such as Glandular Angela. Two (and occasionally three) versions of each card were produced, with variations featuring the same artwork but different character names. The multiples were possibly made to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids' claim that each was unique, whereas NO Garbage Pail kid was unique. . Fifteen regular series were released in the United States, with various sets released in other countries. Two large format card editions were also released, as well as a set of posters.
