I was NEVER a fan of the GPK movie... ever. But I've grown to appreciate the cartoon. But you do have to realize, this is NOT the GPK cards... much like the D&D cartoon was NOT the D&D RPG.
Each of the 13 episodes are broken down into the same sections making up a compilation of cartoon shorts -- in general, most of the 22 minute cartoon is very non-GPK related, a hodge-podge of weird ideas. A 30 second 'kids are strange' beginning starts out the program quickly followed by the GPK title introduction lasting for approximately 1 minute. From here, the first 10 minute segment begins, usually showcasing crazy characters not found in the card series. This section is more reminiscent of episodes of the older Loony Tunes cartoon, a wacky strange tale, with bizarre characters -- with only a few GPK characters sporatically seen throughout the skit. A 30 second 'buy this gizmo' GPK commercial follows which reminds me of those fun items one can "buy" from Bazooka Joe comics... and then a 30 second "GPK Groaner" joke section follows. Finally, the cartoon title segment begins, running 10 minutes -- this actually showcases the 5 GPK stars of the cartoon, what could have been called the "Garbage Gang" had the title been created at that time.Read more ›
The series follows five extra-mild gross kids, "Split Kit", "Clogged Duane", "Terri Cloth", "Patty Putty" and "Elliot Mess" who used their GPK alter-ego to stop bad guys and help people. Typical 80s cartoon, but a great show none of the less.
I highly recommend this show to anyone who is a big fan of cartoons, "Garbage Pail Kids" (just don't expect it to be real gross) or anyone that like to have a little piece of television treasure.
>>SIGH<< if it were only full of vomit and crude humor...
