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 game features four playable characters across six gross levels.
Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum is available now on the Nintendo Switch, Steam, Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One.
