We have tough decisions to make. From the start, Eric mentions Garbage Pail Kids and how his oldest son was almost born on Halloween.

Should we talk about the best Garbage Pail Kids or should we look over famous people that have birthdays on October?

Let’s go with Garbage Pail Kids!

What are Garbage Pail Kids?

Everyone remembers the Cabbage Patch Kids, right? Now picture a parody account of Cabbage Patch Kids. That’s Garbage Pail Kids in a nutshell.

Officially, Wikipedia says:

Garbage Pail Kids is a series of sticker trading cards produced by the Topps Company, originally released in 1985 and designed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, which were popular at the time.

Wikipedia (the most official source for information)

Todd had Garbage Pail Kids cards…which means Eric (kind of) had Garbage Pail Kids cards.

If you have a name, Garbage Pail Kids likely had a parody card. We can take a look at our hosts and our executive producers.

Garbage Pail Kids: The Show

Eric stumbled upon a Christmas Special of the Garbage Pail Kids on YouTube. I didn’t even know this existed.

There was indeed a movie made in 1987 on the Garbage Pail Kids. Eric once watched it. He will likely never watch it again.
