'Garbage Pail Kids' Are Getting an HBO Reboot by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride
Get ready for a another serving of snot, boogers and farts
Published May 26, 2021Garbage Pail Kids are getting a reboot — and it's coming courtesy of David Gordon Green and Danny McBride.
Today it was announced that the endearingly gross '80s property is being resurrected for a new animated series for HBO Max, which is partnering with Topps, Tornante, and Green and McBride's Rough House Pictures for the show, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
While details are still slim, the reboot is expected to be a family-friendly affair and for all ages, according the report. We can no doubt also expect a lot of snot, boogers and farts.
McBride, Green and Josh Bycel will write and co-create the HBO Max series, though so far there's no word on if McBride may voice a character.
For the unfamiliar, Garbage Pail Kids was created as a series of trading cards back in 1985 and was a parody of the then hugely popular Cabbage Patch Kids dolls. In addition to attracting a ton of controversy, the cards found a lot of success, leading to a live-action movie and animated series in 1987.
Over the years, the Garbage Pail Kids have continued to exist in various forms, though a new HBO series is definitely the highest profile project the property has seen in a very long time.
At this point, it's unclear when the Garbage Pail Kids show could arrive on HBO Max.
