Garbage Pail Kids, a series of stickers produced by Topps in 1985 were designed to parody the overly saccharine Cabbage Patch Kids. Each sticker card features a Garbage Pail Kid character depicted in a grotesque and biting image, christened with a humorous character name involving wordplay. The series was the creation of Pulizer Prize-winning cartoonist Art Spiegelman, who in collaboration with other successful artists, turned the cards into a pop-culture phenomenon.
Garbage Pail Kids features all 206 rare and hard-to-find stickers from Series 1 through 5, originally released in 1985 and 1986 and contains an introduction by Spiegelman. Garbage Pail Kids includes a limited edition set of four rare and unreleased stickers, is packaged in a wax-coated jacket and is guaranteed to appeal to die-hard collectors as well as a new generation of fans.
