As a child of the 70s and 80s, it warms my heart to see Garbage Pail Kids, the bastard children of the cabbage patch, still getting the kind of attention that they deserve. In fact, a new documentary is in the works celebrating these scary and gross little scamps.
Are you a fan? You should be! If so, head on over to IndieGoGo to learn all about the upcoming flick 30 Years of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story. While you’re there don’t be a Cheapo Creepo! Sure, the filmmakers have met their goal already (with 9 days left!), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t throw in some cash to make the project even better!
The goal of the film is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Topps’ Garbage Pail Kids Cards with an awesome documentary that is jam-packed with interviews and stories from the original creators of the controversial and explosively popular 80’s card series. Grown-up kids will share nostalgic memories of what it was like to be a part of an international phenomenon. Superfans will offer a peek at what a 30-year amassment of Garbage Pail Kids memorabilia looks like. The flick will also explore the rich cartoon art history that bred this culture icon as well as proclaim Garbage Pail Kids as a solid mark of the 20th Century!
