25 Disturbing Garbage Pail Kids That Still Gross Us Out Decades Later

- Page 1

Wikia

Long before fidget spinners were banned from playgrounds across America, teachers struggled to control the spread of the giddily disgusting Garbage Pail Kids cards.

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

Topps

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

Topps

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

Topps

I bet kids didn't change their shirts for a week after seeing this nightmare.

5. Barfin Bart

Topps

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

Topps

I'm never eating a Hostess Cupcake again...ok, I lied, but this is still disgusting!

7. Meltin' Milton

Topps

Like another melting card on this list, Milton's "This is fine" expression just makes the design that much more disturbing.

8. Ned Head

Topps

Yep, it's a disturbingly detailed shrunken voodoo head, with no other joke or gag. You know, for kids!

9. Donna Donor

Topps

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

Topps

Just what every trading card set needs: a grim reminder of our own mortality.

12. Corroded Carl

Topps

Somebody call Dr. Pimple Popper, this kid's infested.

Everyone Just Found Out That Neopets Was Run By Scientologists And They Are Not Happy About It

When the internet started being used by kids all around the country, there was one site that we all needed to visit. Neopets was the most important website on the internet if you were between the ages of 10-13. It was every middle school kids most important obsession, other than their beanie babies, but somehow these virtual pets felt more real than our tangible toys. You would pick a creature, name it, feed it, play with it, and take it on adventures every single day. You would spin a wheel, helping you collect neopoints, and you could use those points

7 Times The Beanie Baby Craze Went Way Further Than Any Of Us Realized

How much of your money did you spend on Beanie Babies? Be honest. More than you'd like to admit right? As much as a lot of us loved our Beanie Babies, there was a limit. Sure, I put my favorites in plastic boxes to keep them from getting dust on them, and okay, of course I put on a tag protector, I'm not a monster. But if even that sounds excessive to you, then boy, are you unprepared for what's coming up. People put a lot of effort into their Beanie Baby collections in the 90s. I mean, we were

10 Iconic Toys From Your Childhood That You Couldn't Live Without

Let's be honest for a second, it's the internet, there is no one here to judge you. When you were growing up, what did you care the most about? Was it your family? No, that's just what you said near Christmas so you would get good gifts. Was it your friends? No, they weren't always there for you when you needed them. The thing we all cared about more than anything was our elaborate and extensive toy collections. Sure, does that make us all a little bit materialistic and selfish? Probably. But those are the facts and there's not much

13 Dreadful Life Lessons You Learned While Playing 13 Dead End Drive That Haunt You To This Day

Listen, board games were a very important part of our childhood. Dream Phone was played almost every weekend, Fireball Island was played on those days when you had the energy to set it up, but there was one game that trumped them all. 13 Dead End Drive was what happened if you mixed Clue with Mouse Trap, and also added in some good old-fashioned sabotage. The object of the game was simple: Survive. The backstory of the game (not that anyone really cared about that) was that a wealthy woman died and now there is a big fight over who
