These were similar to the Wacky Packs, but with kids names on them, like Snotty Dotty, with a picture of a gross little girl with a VERY runny nose, or Pimple Pete..You can imagine what he lloked like. Made a semi come back briefly in the late 80's, when I bought them for my kids.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Garbage Pail Kids was NOT a product of the 1970s, especially since they were a take-off of Cabbage Patch Kids, which also did not appear until the early to mid 1980s. Just a thought ...

Wacky packs came out in the seventies and were very similar to garbage pail kids (gpk) in terms of parodies. This is where the confusion of the gpk being available earlier than the eighties. Gpk's were a spin off of wacky packs. Both produced by topps.

The Topps gum company issued the Garbage Pail Kids trading cards in 1985, meant to "trash" the squeaky-clean (to a fault) Cabbage Patch Kid dolls. At one point, the concept of producing an animated cartoon series (by DIC, producers of "Inspector Gadget" and "Heathcliff" cartoons) was discussed, but plans fell through.
