The Garbage Pail Kids Movie1987's "The Garbage Pail Kids Movie" (Photo: Atlantic Releasing Corp./Everett Collection)

If you were a kid in the '80s and loved all things gross and slimy, odds are you were a collector of Garbage Pail Kids. The incredibly popular (and incredibly un-PC) trading cards were like the anti-Cabbage Patch Kids. With names like "Potty Scotty" and "Smelly Sally," the cards weren't aiming for highbrow humor. But tweens loved 'em, and now, decades later, the GPKs are getting a new movie.

The Garbage Pail Kids did star in a 1987 live action musical (yes, really). Hopefully the new project, first reported on by Deadline, won't make the same mistakes. Filmmaker Pes, who won several awards for his short film "Western Spaghetti," is set to direct. If director Pes's previous work is any indication, the film may be stop-motion. Former Disney bigwig Michael Eisner, who owns the Topps trading card company, will finance the project via his production company, Tornante Company.

Michael Eisner? Ugh. Maybe a worse movie than the original CAN be made.

So no hope for Basic Instinct moments (http://www.rockshockpop.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=2806&d=1330409812) or paintings of Ghoulies (http://www.rockshockpop.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=2585&d=1329244404)? Pass.

Stop motion sounds promising, but they'll probably cut out the singing. BOOO.
Oh, and everything Ryan said, too.

The original car crash... I mean "movie", is actually pretty entertaining in spite of itself. I wonder if the new one will be.

I do love stop motion, though.

I've seen tons of bad movies and I couldn't finish Garbage Pail Kids. I think that say's something.

I guess it says it's not a bad movie.

I love the original film. Got to see it 3 times in theaters. And bought the Vhs and dvd the days they came out. Shit I even have the dvd of the short lived cartoon series.

I bought the new hardcover book that came out last week. It's pretty fucking amazing. Has all the gorgeous paintings on the cards up to series 5. Plus the behind-the-scenes history of the whole sticker set, including some of the names they were going to call it before they settled on the final name. "Cabbage Punk Kids", for one.

Plus the packaging is amazing on this thing. Has a set of stickers that come with the book, and the dust jacket is made out of the same wax paper that the card packs came in. So cool. :up:

Did not know about this release! Just ordered from Amazon along with two Wacky Packages books by the same publisher. Thanks for the heads up!

The book also reveals one amazing fact about John Pound's Garbage Pail Kids paintings that I did not know. Get ready for this:

He painted each one, from start to finish, in a single DAY. (!!) Working five days a week, that is 20 paintings a month.

Goddamn.
