Who’s Your Garbage Pail Kid Doppelganger?
Remember back in the 80’s when ‘trading cards’ were kind of a big deal? Back when magazines and VHS ruled the day and Garbage Pail Kids could be found under every child’s bed? Next to a sling shot, some Halloween candy, and an old Playboy with half the pages ripped out?
Now you can take a trip down memory lane with a new and exciting app that will generate your very own Garbage Pail Doppelganger!! That’s right, all you have to do is type in “Garbage Pail Kid & ‘YOUR FIRST NAME'” and the app will show you your very own Garbage Pail Kid. Ready?
Go to ‘Google.com’, type in “Garbage Pail Kid (your first name)” and make sure you select an ‘image’ search.

There’s even new music themed decks from a series called ‘The Shammy’s“:
