Garbage Pail Kids Will Protect Your iPhone

Posted on: December 22nd, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Garbage Pail Kids are mounting another comeback, albeit in a mobile medium. The franchise of foul-mouthed sticker cards is joining the iPhone generation with the creation of its own branded iPhone gel cases. Each purchase comes with a code to unlock the same image as wallpaper for your Jesus phone.  Time to relive those glory days of piecing together the puzzle of Uncle Sam with a finger up his nose (i.e. Snooty Sam) while chewing on stale Topps gum.

It was around this time last year that we presented some of our favorite city-based Garbage Pail Kids, including Bill Ding, Jess Express, and Alice Island. Still looking for the classic cards?  Economy Candy still carries unopened packs of the first-gen cards on occasion.
