Check out all of our killer Garbage Pail Kids Comments and Graphics in our GPK Collection!
Garbage Pail Kids, aka GPK, are non-sport cards/stickers made by Topps Inc. between 1985 and 1988 in the U.S.A. Since girls had Cabbage Patch Kid Dolls back then, they created GPK for the boys, to make fun of the Cabbage Patch Kid Dolls. In 1987 Topps was sued by Mattel, which is the company that created Cabbage Patch Kids because of copyright infringements. GPK looked to much like Cabbage Patch Kids so they were forced to change the way they were drawn by changing the number of fingers, making the forehead higher, making the ears stick out more, etc. Topps stopped producing GPK in 1988 due to the lawsuit and lack of sales.
