    HBO Max Developing Garbage Pail Kids Animated Series
    The Hollywood Reporter brings word that HBO Max is developing
    a family-friendly Garbage Pail Kids animated series. The
    project comes from co-creators and writers Danny McBride,
    David Gordon Green, and Josh Bycel (Solar Opposites) and was
    inspired by McBride and Green's love for Garbage Pail Kids
    and Saturday morning cartoons. The new show is expected to
    appeal to audiences of all ages.

    The series will be executive produced by Tornante TV's Noel
    Bright and Steven A. Cohen along with Rough House's Brandon
    James, as well as McBride, Green, and Bycel.

    Garbage Pail Kids was created by the Topps Company in 1985 as
    a series of sticker trading cards that were designed to parody
    the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, which were popular at the time.
    The Garbage Pail Kids became a worldwide phenomenon with their
    gross-out humor and subversive attitude and recently
    celebrated its 35th Anniversary.

    Garbage Pail Kids were previously adapted into a live-action
    movie and an animated TV series in 1987, though the series
    never aired in the U.S. due to "controversial themes."

    D'oh!! There's obviously an "e" missing off the "Garbage" in the
    subject ... mind you the show will be garbage anyway.
