Garbage Pail Kids Are Back At Fright Rags

Garbage Pail Kids - Wretchin Regan ShirtIf you’re like me, you’re a child of the 80’s (OK… so I was born in the mid 70’s but you know what I mean). There are certain pop-culture icons that bring back great memories. One of those icons for me are the Garbage Pail Kids. If you’re not familiar with the GPK, it is a series of trading cards produced by the Topps Company, originally released in 1985 and designed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids dolls. Each sticker card features a Garbage Pail Kid character having some comical abnormality, deformity and/or suffering a terrible fate, with a humorous, word play-rich character name. Two versions of each card were produced, with variations featuring the same artwork but a different character name denoted by an “a” or “b” letter after the card number.

Fright-Rags Creates New Garbage Pail Kids Characters Based On Horror Favorites

Last year, Fright-Rags teamed with famed Garbage Pail Kids artist Brent Engstrom to create their own Garbage Pail Kid: “Fright Rag Freddy.” They’re back with four new GPK characters inspired by such horror favorites as “The Exorcist” and “It.”

Say hello to “Plungin’ Penny,” “Wretchin’ Regan,” “Howlin’ Howard” and “Krampin’ Kevin.” Although they’d feel right at home in a pack of Topps’ beloved trading cards, you can get these designs on super soft 60/40 heather shirts.

Collect them all at These items are limited and may sell out during the pre-order period. Order are expected to ship in late June.

Fright-Rags is also taking pre-orders on Grzegorz Domaradzki’s new The Texas Chainsaw Massacre design.

You can find more about Fright Rags on their website at on their official Facebook page or by following them Twitter @frightrags.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
