11 Garbage Pail Kids That Have the Same Names as Real People
written by Sam Greenspan

When I was a kid, I was all about Garbage Pail Kids. I was susceptible to many '80s fads (He-Man, neon colors, the California Raisins, Swatch watches, Nintendo, doing crack)... and Garbage Pail Kids were right up there.

Today I found myself deeply lost in an incredible Garbage Pail Kids website (that's hosted on Geocities... quite possibly making it the last useful remaining Geocities website in the world)... and I knew I needed to make a GPK 11 points list.

As I went through the old cards, I realized that there are plenty of Garbage Pail Kids that, coincidentally, have the same names as real people (or, at least, real movie characters). So I decided on a photo essay list, comparing the real person and the corresponding Garbage Pail Kid side-by-side.
  1. Hairy Carrie Cubs win!


  2. Mean Gene "Let me tell you something, Mean Gene!"


  3. Large Marge Tell 'em Large Marge sent ya!


  4. Al Catraz Obscure references from recent and contrived episodes of "The Simpsons" are always going to be a part of this website.


  5. Barb Wire Never seen this movie, actually. Seems pointless.


  6. Ned Head "Phil? Phil Connors? ... Hey now, don't you tell me you don't remember me 'cause I sure as heckfire remember you... 'Needlenose Ned'? 'Ned the Head'?"


  7. Rappin' Ron He was a sort-of underground rapper. Consult your local library for more information.


  8. John John Aww.


  9. Ultraviolet Never saw this movie either. But I'm sure it's tremendous.


  10. Mad Mike Like five or six years ago my roommates and I went through a HUGE "Pimp My Ride" phase... and no one is more iconic than Mad Mike. Not even Xzibit.


  11. Tommy Gun A double finale! A "Rocky" reference AND a porn star reference! Those are two things every single male in my generation can relate to.
