Does anyone remember Garbage Pail Kids? These were trading cards but really gross ones.

Yes. They were evil and, delicate child that I was, some of them made my stomach turn.

Yep. So do the guys at gamesTM ;)

I remember some of the kids in my class going absolutely stark staring bonkers when they first appeared.

Well, Garbage Pail Kids are now back in America and I've even started collecting cards printed from the 80s to present via Ebay! Even the latest scratch and stink cards are out! But I assure you that I don't enjoy the smell of them! They are even printing old cards again! Old Series 1 remains popular and makes cigarette burns in people's wallets! What I like about it is that they're gross and different! Its something that you don't see everyday!

There are no PAL DVD release of Garbage Pail Kids yet, but you can buy VHS PAL release of the film from Ebay. Or if you prefer the DVD release (Region 1) then visit www.playusa.com, they import usa titles (R1) with cheap prices! Playusa sells the latest or rare releases that haven't been released in the United Kingdom! They are a british company. I have bought Region 1 DVD version of Garbage Pail Kids from Playusa and converted it to Region 2, so my DVD player can play it!

Do you work for PlayUSA by any chance? :lol:

Seriously though, I agree with you. I always use them to feed my R1 habit. I really like the no P&P thing.

I had hundreds of these things, it was a real craze at our school for a year or so. I'm fairly sure they are all still knocking about in a box at my mums house.
