The Garbage Pail Kids are 30 years old! Celebrate their gross-out greatness with artist interviews, superfan collections, and more!
30 Years of Garbage has already secured interview commitments from original Garbage Pail Kids creators including: Art Spiegelman, Len Brown, Mark Newgarden, John Pound, Tom Bunk, Jay Lynch and others. Also on board as a co-producer is Adam F. Goldberg, creator of the ABC primetime TV show, The Goldbergs.
Although this is great news, Joe Simko and his filmmaking team still need backers for this awesome project. This is not a Topps-funded documentary, so the artists, are going straight to the people to try and get funding. You can help by contributing to their Kickstarter campaign: CLICK HERE

This documentary's goal is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Topps' Garbage Pail Kids Cards. We will interview the original creators of the surprisingly controversial and explosively popular 80's card series. Grown-up kids will share nostalgic memories of what it was like to be a part of an international phenomena. Superfans will give us a peek at what a 30-year amassment of Garbage Pail Kids memorabilia looks like. We will proclaim Garbage Pail Kids as an art form and a solid mark of the 20th Century! See how these happily-diseased kids are still influencing pop culture today.
