Today I’m reminded of those awesomely grotesque trading cards called Garbage Pail Kids (GPK):
The characters depicted were a modification of Cabbage Patch Kids dolls (which I also loved) in ghastly situations with a punny twist on their names. I actually had a couple of packs of the GPK cards and a little toy. I’m surprised I was allowed them, since in our household, we weren’t even allowed to say the word “fart” (we had to substitute “pass wind”… “Pass wind face” doesn’t have the same ring as “Fart face” imo). Here’s a short trip down memory lane.
There were 16 series of the original Garbage Pail Kids cards, and today I’m featuring ones that were Halloween themed:
Does anyone remember these cards or heard of them? I don’t know if I still have my cards – they could be buried in some bins where I kept my sticker books. If anyone is sitting on a pile of GPK cards, be sure to check if it’s a rare one – they sell for lots of money online! Also, for fun, see if you can find your name that has been GPK-fied: A-H, I-P, and Q-Z.
Hope you have a haunting Halloween! 😉
