While we tried to get our grubby little hands on every single set of these trading cards, looking back we wonder how we could stomach the nasty designs. Here are 25 cards that still make our stomachs churn:
1. Slain Wayne
While boogers were the bread and butter of garbage pail kids, the cards weren't afraid to stray into very adult territory. This scene of a death by execution was definitely one of their most questionable images.
2. Juicy Jessica
Lend us a hand with the physics of this one: how exactly did the plant managed to leave behind a skeleton and a severed, bloody arm. I'm starting to think these cards don't take themselves very seriously.
3. Upset Tommy
Soaking in a tub full of vomit wasn't enough? Who let this kid eat tin cans and rats in the first place?
4. Peeled Paul
I bet kids didn't change their shirts for a week after seeing this nightmare.
5. Barfin Bart
Like a kid-friendly version of Monty Python's Mr. Creosote skit, Bart can't resist chomping down on all sorts of nasty treats.
6. Pills Barry
I'm never eating a Hostess Cupcake again...ok, I lied, but this is still disgusting!
7. Meltin' Milton
Like another melting card on this list, Milton's "This is fine" expression just makes the design that much more disturbing.
8. Ned Head
Yep, it's a disturbingly detailed shrunken voodoo head, with no other joke or gag. You know, for kids!
9. Donna Donor
While snot, vomit, and every other gross body fluid graced the Garbage Pail cards, blood was usually taboo. That's why this upsetting card stands out so much.
10. Will Hung
Oh, just a baby hanging in a well. You know, that old gag. We hope this was just some awful take on the Baby Jessica story.
11. Dead Ted
Just what every trading card set needs: a grim reminder of our own mortality.
12. Corroded Carl
Somebody call Dr. Pimple Popper, this kid's infested.
