The Return of Garbage Pail Kids
« on: July 15, 2003, 11:16 AM »
That's right.  If you're a child of the 80s, everyone's favorite gross out trading cards are making a comeback.  Read all about it here.

I had fun collecting these back in the day.  In fact I even went as far as designing some of my own.  I had a composition notebook filled with my own creations, such as "Bloody Mary" (a vampire), among others.  Man, I wish I knew where that notebook was.

What do you think?  Another 80s property trying to recapture old glory ala GIJoe and Transformers geared towards the twentysomethings that were their original customers or are they trying to snare the GenXers of today?  I think its the former, kids now a days have seen alot worse.  I must admit, I'm mildly interested in checking these out.

Great Googoly Moogoly!

That is awesome.  5th and 6th grade were ripe with these little buggers and were a pre-cursor to my heavy Sportscard collecting days.

In fact I sense a new avatar approaching

THAT'S AWESOME!!!!

I used to collect these in a religious way when I was a kid, and I still have them packed away somewhere.  I'll have to get them out and take some pictures of them.  Having these be re-released is awesome news.  I'm not exactly sure if I will start collecting them again, but I just might.  Who knows.

Thanks for the pic Mike!  Here's two more that has my name on it.  I can't believe there were only 3 cards that had Chris in it.  Isn't "Chris" the most popular name in America?
