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 »

Michelle Muck meets Patty Putty
23 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fact that the mythical "Garbage Pail Kids" Saturday morning cartoon never actually aired (in the United States) was a landmark error by CBS executives, who were pressured by letters and complaints from several anguished suburban soccer moms (and other assorted fruit cakes) whose only other primary concerns were piano recitals and choir practice.

Fortunately, a few episodes aired overseas and were taped, and can now be purchased via the internet. The cartoon featured several GPK characters including Liberty Libby, Clogged Duane, Elliot Mess, Michelle Muck and Trashed Tracy. The only thing that aired in the United States was a Saturday morning "teaser ad" that ran a few weeks before the original scheduled debut.

UPDATE! The mythical Garbage Pail Kids cartoon is now available on DVD! All 13 episodes will be available in April 2006—Reserve your copy today!
