Garbage Pail Kids parody stickers were released by the Topps Chewing Gum company starting in 1985 and were created by Art Spiegelman and Mark Newgarden; both art directors, editors, writers and concept artists for the GPK franchise and its entire original series run. Both provided nomenclature for the characters with a naming panel that also included Len Brown and Stan Hart with suggestions by the artists, writers and even last minute name changes by Arthur Shorin, the then President of Topps. Artists John Pound (who worked with acrylics and airbrushing), the GPK grandfather and Tom Bunk (who worked with gouache and airbrushing) together completed around 90% of the finished artwork for the card fronts, later joined by James Warhola (who worked with oils; sketch to final, no color rough), David Burke, James Bennett, Mae Jeon and Bill Wray (one final piece). Card backs were completed by Tom Bunk, Jay Lynch, Howard Cruse and Richard McGuire who animated the 'Flick It' section of the later series. The writers included Newgarden, Spiegelman, Lynch, and John Mariano. Other individuals who assisted by penciling, inking, coloring or lettering were Carole Sobocinski, Grass Green and Javi Soler. Others contributed ideas and sketches such as Len Brown, Frank Santopadre (writer), Stephen Kroninger, Bob Sikoryak and Paul Karasik. These collaborators made Garbage Pail Kids the most hyped and talked about craze in non-sport card history.




In 2003, the Topps Company, Inc. took advantage of the increasingly nostalgic craze for 80's games and toys and released seven All-New Series GPK sets over a period of several years through 2007 and then three Flashback sets that contained orginal GPK artwork as well as Lost material and All-New content in 2010 and 2011. Three rejuvinated Brand-New Series GPK sets were released in 2012 and 2013 with a nostaglic GPK feel and two Chrome technoloy sets in 2013 and 2014. The latest Yearly GPK sets have been released from 2014 through 2018 with the most current having themes and subsets. Art directed originally by John Williams (now supervising editor), followed by Jeff Zapata and later by Colin Walton, the new GPK craze is comprised of veteran artists John Pound, Tom Bunk, James Warhola, Frank Santopadre and Jay Lynch (who supplied concept and card back artwork along with Scott Shaw) as well as a long very long list of next-generation artists, including but not limited to Luis Diaz, Brent Engstrom, Dave Gross, Fred Harper, Layron DeJarnette, Mark Pingitore, JungHwa Im, Fred Wheaton, Joe Simko, Neil Camera, Joe McWilliams, et cetera.
