The Hollywood Reporter reports that a Garbage Pail Kids animated series is currently in development at HBO Max.
The Garbage Pail Kids is a collectible trading card series from the Topps Company originally released in 1985 as a parody of the Cabbage Patch Kids. Each card shows Garbage Pail Kid, a character with absurd circumstances usually tied to a name that doubled as a pun. The cards became a favorite for kids who were a fan of the bizarre and would g on to get a poorly received live-action movie and an animated series in 1987.
The new animated series is being made by Danny McBride’s Rough House pictures and Tornante alongside Topps for HBO. Reportedly inspired by Mcbride and his Rough House Partner Dave Gordon Green’s love for the cards, the series will see Danny McBride, Danny Green, and Josh Bycel as writers.
No word yet on when fans should expect the show to release.
