JAPAN







RELEASE PERIOD : 1987

The Japanese cards, titled Bukimi Kun, were released in Japan in 1987 around the same time as the Israeli Havurat Ha'zevel 1st series set. These international licensed releases used album-based sticker sets that ran between 160-200 cards in length per set and used the U.S. artwork images but no twin characters. The stickers come 4 to a paper pack for 100¥ (yen) intended to be stuck down in a collector's sticker album. Although the series went to press and was eventually released, the government censorship in Japan heavily censored a number of the cards with large black bars blocking out most of the image.

1. Even though the 8th Series Explorin' NORMAN character is used on the Bukimi Kun Packaging the image is not found in the actual set that pulls from the the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 6th Series U.S. sets. All images used: OS1 (41 +), OS2 (42 +), OS3 (41 +) and OS6 (44 = 168).

2. The majority of the Bikumi Kun cards have a new, wider Curved Header that covers up the previous Garbage Pail Kids logo; mainly in the color green but can be seen in the color blue as well.


3. The Israeli Havurat Ha'zevel and Japanese Bukimi Kun are Direct Replications of each other, like many of the international card releases. For example, the Italian Sgorbions and French Les Crados are direct replications of each other, et cetera. The 'PEEL HERE' has been erased from the arrow since the stickers are not die-cut. Both ADAM Bombs are number 125 in the set. If you look closely, you can see the original Garbage Pail Kids logo header peering out at the left hand side of the new curved banner for both cards. Also, there's a white scratch on the image in the same location for both cards to the left of the character's shoulder.


4. All of the internationally Licensed Garbage Pail Kids images have the copyright stating "Garbage Gang is a trademark of and is licensed by the Topps Company, Inc."

5. It is peculiar that the set, eventually Censored before distribution, was completed as is, or the Cards quickly changed to Japanese from the Israeli release, and then censored; rather than the images just being pulled from the set in the first place, prior to production. The only common threads to the censored cards are characters of disfigurement (in general) and death sentencing.


6. The interesting Slogans found on the Japanese packaging can also be located within the album itself: "LET'S bring togerther (together) the lowest! The worst! 168 BUKIMI KUN (Garbage Gang)!" along with other display box messages in English: "Go to casher (cashier)! with picking nose!", "Amazing STARRRZ from United States, Genius Education For Amazing, Monomaniac, Psychic, Helish, Schizo, Frenzy, Kids." -- by far the coolest promotional catch phrase of any country.

7. It is interesting to note that instead of a new, curved header, the Straight Garbage Pail Kids Banner that doesn't show up until the 10th Series U.S. cards is used; and no peel-here arrow 'shadow' shows up on this #18 card image at all.


8. The album states 'Series 1' and 'To be continued' but it was the only set released at that time. It would take Topps to release an online only Bukimi Kun set in May of 2014 for there to be another, U.S. based set commemorating the popular foreign release. The new set is diretly based off of the 2014 Series 1 GPK set released in January of that same year.
