Halloween Director Developing Garbage Pail Kids Animated Series

It’s learned that Halloween Director David Gordon Green is developing a Garbage Pail Kids animated series.

Director David Gordon Green directed the Halloween Trilogy and recently The Exorcist: Believer, which is now in theaters.

While discussing the flick on the Happy Sad Confused podcast including Marvel and DC and addressing Star Wars rumors, David Gordon Green mentioned the Garbage Pail Kids which he says will be “naughty.”

“Right now, I’m excited, [Danny] McBride and I are trying to do an animated series based on the Garbage Pail Kids cards — if you ever had those cards, so we we’re working on that, and we’ve got some really cool ways that we can make a pretty naughty animated show and see if they’ll have us on that one,” he said.

David Gordon Green added he likes to make projects he is passionate about and not just please others.

“I use that as an example of like pulling something out of IP and playing and making it personal and making what appeals to me about it, not necessarily just engineering it for everyone in the in the world,” he said.

He added, “I guess that’s what gets heard for me is trying to make everyone happy, where I want to have a point of view, and I want to make something pretty specific and passionate.”

What are Garbage Pail Kids?

Garbage Pail Kids are a series of trading cards created by Topps, a company known for producing sports and entertainment trading cards.

The cards were first released in 1985 as a parody of the popular Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, which were a major toy fad at the time.

Each card features a humorous and often grotesque illustration of a fictional character, along with a play on words or a punny name.

The characters are usually depicted with dark humor and satire engaging in some sort of outrageous or comical behavior designed to appeal to mostly children.

The Garbage Pail Kids series gained popularity quickly, although it also generated some controversy due to its sometimes crude or gross content.

Despite this, the cards became highly collectible, and various series and merchandise have been released over the years.

A live-action movie was released in 1987 with The Garbage Pail Kids Movie that has gained cult status, and a year later a GPK animated series was released that lasted for one season featuring Tara Strong as Patty Putty.

Topps still produces the cards and recently released its Krashers Series 4 and a take on the MLB released.
