Oh that Adam! :lol:

The original "Garbage Pail Kids" series was from the 80s and never aired in the US due to protests:



An atrocity one might say. That has to be one of the worst and laziest theme songs! It tells you nothing. The first half doesn't even use any of the main characters. About what you would expect from something with "Garbage" in its name.

After my sister was a Cabbage Patch fan, I have always had a morbid curiosity to see the Garbage Pail Movie, though it’s apparently quite gross and crass. That’s not unexpected, but I’ve never got around to it.

Trust me Ben, you’re better off. :?
You can’t just have your characters announce how they feel! That makes me feel angry!

Here's the trailer for the 80s movie. It's as bad as it looks.

I always liked seeing Andy again from "The Facts of Life". That's about it. So much product placement for Pepsi.

While I haven't watched a Nostalgia Critic video in years (to put it nicely, his recent work is terrible), the old school ones from back in the day tended to be pretty funny, including the episode in which he non-ironically declared this the worst movie he had ever reviewed.

All I remember about them was that my brothers and I collected the card series. There was a card series right and I'm not making up a false memory?

Oh, yeah there were! They were controversial at the time, too. Gross.
