    Default Garbage Pail Kids - trading cards

    I remember in my Junior High school days, we used to collect and trade "Garbage Pail Kids" trading cards.

    They came out right after Cabbage Patch Kids came out (another 80's favorite), and they were supposed to be a parody, making fun of that craze.

    They ended up being a little mini craze of their own. Instead of cutesy names like Cabbage Patch Kids had, they had gross names like Rancid Robert, and things like that.

    I think they even tried to remake and re-release the cards a few years ago.

    One of my friends recently found them again. They still be making them. I think he said he found them about 6 months ago.

    yep.....it was along the same lines as the teenage mutant ninja turles character..
    it didn't make it big or anything, but those tapes and some of the cards go for a lot of bucks on ebay.
