Trivia

"Garbage Pail Kids" was produced, and CBS implied the full season's worth of episodes were completed, but Action for Children's Television barred the program from ever airing because of blatant commercialism, though they never screened any of the episodes that had been made. See more »

Garbage Pail Kids is a treasure for 80's cartoon fans
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is the one of the most controversial issues in the late 1980s. Parents and teachers complaining that the series based on the popular 1985-1988 stickers were too gross and some say disrespectful to the handicapped. Apparently this is another case that people in 1987 overreacted to the GPK TV series. The show itself showed little or no resemblance of grossness as the cards they are based on. This show was made before the days of "Ren and Stimpy" and "Beavis and Butt-head" so if your looking for it to be gross, well does throwing slime count? Hee Hee! Fans of the Garbage Pail Kids stickers will not be disappointed. (unless they were wanted it to be gross) The series is based on five kids, Split Kit, Elliot Mess, Terri Cloth, Clogged Duane, and Patty Putty who can transform into the Garbage Pail Kids(in the first two episodes, later they start the episode as their GPK personas).

The show does not focus on the five GPK characters. In the beginning of the program they show a parody of a hit movie such as "Superman", "King Kong", "Jaws", "The Pink Panther", etc. Later we have parody commercials like the little brother volume control, or the robo-tattler. Also it features a small segment called a "Garbage Pail Groaner" where they make a joke or a pun and everyone starts groaning.

People who grew up in the 1980s and was bummed out because their parents made protests and complaints to CBS will be pleased. Most of the episodes are funny and yet some aimed at more little kids' stuff like going to Storybook Land and The Land of Odd (Oz). This is a great show. I do recommend anyone who just like cartoons to buy the DVD. It is a shame that CBS never aired, but at least they were nice enough to release the series onto DVD. Way to go, CBS!
