1987 Garbage Pail Kids Cartoon: 4.04.06

The Garbage Pail Kids Cartoon, which was supposed to have aired on CBS' Saturday Morning Line-up in 1987, but was axed for whatever reason, is coming to DVD on April 4, 2006.

Apparently, only 13 episodes of the series (one season's worth) made it to postproduction.

It never actually made it to TV. Was cancelled before the first episode even aired, so this is the first chance anyone's going to be able to see it.

Actually, According to Wikipedia, the cartoon DID briefly air in Europe, just never the United States.

I stand corrected.

I'll definately have to check this out for nostalgia reasons. I was going to get the movie when it came out for the same reasons, but I read a couple reviews and it swayed my decision. Maybe I'll pick it up at the next DDD sale.. Probably be $5 or so then.

Anyone pick this up today? Show yourselves.

We got a couple copies in today at Best Buy. Was tempted, out of curiosity, but it must be pretty bad, huh?

I picked it up. I like it, but I love 80s cartoons, and it's cool to finally see this in English.
