ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY EXCLUSIVE
R.L. Stine sets new series based on Garbage Pail Kids
Things are about to get slimy.
By David Canfield February 21, 2020 at 11:00 AM EST

R.L. Stine fans, meet R.L. Slime.


The legendary author behind Goosebumps and Fear Street will next publish a middle-grade series based on The Topps Company’s pop-culture phenomenon Garbage Pail Kids, EW can announce exclusively. The author reached a three-book deal with publisher Abrams’ Children’s Books, beginning with Welcome to Smellville, which will hit shelves this fall.

Garbage Pail Kids first launched in 1985 as collectible sticker cards and has since grown to include merchandise such as T-shirts, toys, mobile and board games, and more. In Stine’s vision, the Garbage Pail Kids are gross and weird and strange, but they’re not bad kids — they just don’t know any better. Welcome to Smellville introduces Adam Bomb, Brainy Janie, Junkfood John, and Nervous Rex as they get into mischief, battling bullies and their archenemies, the Perfects.

“The Garbage Pail Kids are ghastly, loud, messy, out of control . . . out of their minds. In other words, MY kind of kids!” Stine said in a statement. “I’m hoping to create a book series that captures all the loopy slapstick fun of these uniquely awful characters, to get all middle-grade kids reading — and laughing.”

The books will feature cover art by Joe Simko and interior illustrations by Jeff Zapata, both mainstay artists for the Garbage Pail Kids brand, and will be packaged with four exclusive, collectible sticker cards.

EW can exclusively debut Simko’s cover art as well as a preview sticker card for Welcome to Smellville, the latter of which introduces a rather uncanny R.L. Slime.Check the sticker out [above], and be sure to see the cover at the top of this post. Garbage Pail Kids #1: Welcome to Smellville publishes Oct 6, 2020.

The original phone screen read '911 CALL' but was changed for the final artwork.

The second concept of the 'GL' employee exclusive, not chosen, shows the same character puking out the side of the GPK taxi cab, while the taxi driver raises a fist out another window and a pigeon having the poo scared out of it. The 'Unfare AARON' nomenclature was also not chosen and is a combination of the two words 'unfair' and taxi cab 'fare'.

The U.S.-based game publishing company specializes in the production and distribution of licensed versions of classic board games, including Monopoly, from a wide variety of franchises all with the official Monopoly logo licensed from Parker Brothers/Hasbro. USAopoly began in 1994 and puts a 'hometown' spin on the classic Monopoly game, focusing first on cities and then expanding to include colleges, sports teams, and pop culture themes. In 2019, USAopoly changed their name and branding to 'The OP'. Custom box illustration by GPK artist Joe Simko.

ACD Distribution Description: Relive the totally awesome 80’s with the MONOPOLY®: Garbage Pail Kids game!
This game has the classic sticker artwork and new custom illustrations for a new generation of fans. Comes with 6 custom tokens.

Mr. Monopoly can be seen on the box transformed into a Garbage Pail Kids parody of a Cabbage Patch Doll. Upon USAopoly's request, artist JOE Simko created three different box versions for them starring Mr. Monopoly to choose from, considering they want their mascot to be 'standing in' the most flattering light.
USAopoly liked all three versions and for a spell even considered a variation box cover. Per Wikipedia: Uncle Pennybags' full name was given as Milburn Pennybags, the character "In Jail" is named "Jake, the Jailbird", and the police officer on Go to Jail is named "Officer Mallory". In 1999, Rich Uncle Pennybags was renamed Mr. Monopoly.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Garbage Pail Kids and The Op Sign Deal to Pass GO and Collect $200


CARLSBAD, Calif.– January 21, 2020 – usaopoly (The Op), a leading tabletop games publisher, is teaming up with Topps, creator of the Garbage Pail Kids (GPK), to offer an irreverent and nostalgic version of one of the world’s most popular games, MONOPOLY®. The release of this new game coincides with GPK’s 35th anniversary, a year-long celebration of the brand’s fun, quirky and irreverent heritage.

“As long-time fans of Garbage Pail Kids, we are excited that other fans of this pop-culture classic will be able to immerse themselves in, and enjoy, the iconic tabletop Monopoly game play experience,” says Maggie Matthews (aka Haggy Maggie in Garbage Pail Kids-speak), The Op’s SVP of Licensing.

Especially pleasing is fan-favorite GPK artist Joe Simko’s return to deliver a fresh, cheeky art design for the Monopoly box top. Once the game is cracked open, players will vie to collect iconic characters such as Adam Bomb and Leaky Lindsay in order to reign supreme — and will pick one of six collectible movers such as an Overflowing Garbage Can, Swirly Dog Poop or Zit Goo Tube to navigate the game board.

“When Topps first published the Garbage Pail Kids cards and stickers in the 80’s and 90’s, it spawned a worldwide collecting phenomenon,” says Ira Friedman (aka InCRUDible IRA), Topps VP of Global Licensing. “Today, many of those young fans are nostalgically reliving childhood memories and reconnecting with the brand. They’re going to get a kick out of this bold mashup between GPK and Monopoly.”

MONOPOLY®: Garbage Pail Kids will be available throughout North America in specialty stores this Spring, with a $39.99 MSRP.
