The Garbage Pail Kids are a parody Topps card line that was a gross-out version of the popular doll toys The Cabbage Patch Kids, the card incarnations that debuted in 1985 featured subversive versions of the dolls and led to cult film that is rarely talked about and an animated series.
HBO Max has been ramping-up their animation projects and have reportedly landed a new animated series featuring The Garbage Pail Kids with Danny McBride and David Gordon Green co-creating the project with Solar Opposites writer/executive producer Josh Bycel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s likely the animated series will skew mature similar to things like Rick & Morty, Solar Opposites, and Harley Quinn, given the people involved on the creative team.
Danny McBride and David Gordon Green previously worked together on the new trilogy of Halloween films for Blumhouse and the R-rated fantasy stoner comedy Your Highness that was co-written by McBride with David Gordon Green directing. The pair likely arrived on folks’ radar thanks to Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg comedy Pineapple Express.
