It was originally announced back in 2021 that HBO Max was developing a “Garbage Pail Kids” animated series, with Danny McBride and David Gordon Green (Halloween, The Exorcist: Believer) co-creating and writing the series for Rough House Pictures.
What’s the latest on that project? Speaking with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Gordon Green reveals in a new chat that the planned “Garbage Pail Kids” animated series is still alive.
“Right now, McBride and I are trying to do an animated series on the Garbage Pail Kids,” Gordon Green tells the show. “So we’re working on that and we’ve got some pretty cool ways we can make a naughty animated show, we’ll see if they’ll have us on that one.”
Last we heard, Josh Bycel (“Solar Opposites”) is also writing and co-creating alongside the duo.
It’s interesting to note that the animated series was first announced as a “family-friendly” project, so unless those plans have changed, don’t expect the series to get too “naughty.”
Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
The Garbage Pail Kids brand was launched as a line of trading cards from Topps back in 1985, spawning a live-action feature film in 1987. The brand is still going strong to this day, most recently seeing the launch of a line of books that are written by R.L. Stine. New waves of trading cards are also frequently released, along with toys and all kinds of other products.
The titular Garbage Pail Kids are of course a gross-out gang not afraid to play with boogers, blood and vomit, with the brand created as a spoof of the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls.
