In 1967, the Topps Chewing Gum company published a 44 card Kooky Awards Stickers set (© T.C.C. PRTD. IN U.S.A.) that was mainly painted by artist Norman Saunders with five of the artwork pieces being completed by artist Tom Sutton; these were punch-out die-cut cards with moisten-adhesive backs — the same year and style as the Wacky Packages release. The Topps company also reused several of these concepts from the 1964 Nutty Awards Postcards set of 32 cards (NO © NOTICE), illustrated by legendary artists Jack Davis, which in turn were recycled again and used as a blueprint for a majority of the card backs for the 1985 OS1 Garbage Pail Kids set (© 1985 TOPPS CHEWING GUM, INC. PRTD. IN U.S.A.), the Giant OS1 GPK set (© 1986 TOPPS CHEWING GUM, INC. PRTD. IN U.S.A.) and the later Chrome OS1 release (® & © 2013 THE TOPPS COMPANY, INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. WWW.TOPPS.COM CODE# CMP005176.) around 28 years later; several signatures are in a different position. Similar concepts can also be found in the 1975 Wanted Stickers and 1980 Wanted Posters Topps sets — also used for the OS3 and OS4 Garbage Pail Kids sets.

At Len Brown's suggestion, art director Mark Newgarden, from the New Product Development department, was asked to update these older Topps releases to use on the backside of the first few Garbage Pail kids sets, thus saving some time on creating new material from scratch. Although some titles are brand-new, since some of the older material was too outdated for kids 'now-a-days', Newgarden created some new material still based on the same theme. Before artist Tom Bunk started working on the card fronts beginning with the OS3 release, he had the task of rendering and creating new material for the card backs of these first few Garbage pail Kids sets under the tutalage of both Newgarden and Art Speigelman. The ribbon artwork on the card was the only way Newgarden was allowed to sneak in his own artwork for the project. Out of the 32 Nutty Awards Postcards set, 31 of these concepts were used in the GPK series; the Nutty Awards title #12 not used: 'Dishonorable Discharge'.  The nine new 1st series concepts:  'Allergy Prescription', 'Bad Taste Award', 'Big Stink Award', 'Grouch License','Clumsy Award', 'Foulmouth Award', 'Reform School Diploma', 'Whiners Award', 'Garbage Pail Award', and 'Busy Body License'.



The NPD Department would create the revised artwork and card type, but the Art Department was in charge of the overall design and would produce the composition and layout of the front side and card backs as well as the promotional material and packaging. Comp images were generated to help guide the final card type design and artwork placement. The NPD Department would give feedback at a later stage and eventually give the final 'okay'. One task by the Art Department, a step prior to printing, is the paste-up stage; a method of creating a layout for the card back — pre-dating computerized page design and desktop publishing programs. The production artist would arrange the layout and apply line art and text cut-and-paste using and adhesive to the boards. The images were often photographed or scanned in order to create a negative which was then used to make a printing plate.







No.1 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
1a Nasty NICK, 1b Evil EDDIE and Giant OS1 card #1 Nasty NICK



Artwork : TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character has been brought indoors and placed closely in front of a tee-vee set with a half moon displayed outside the resident's window, setting a nighttime time frame. Minus the word "President" on Nutty Awards Postcard #24 being abbreviated to "Pres.", the card-type of the permit, the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition.

2a Junkfood JOHN, 2b RAY Decay and Giant OS1 card #18 Cranky FRANKIE



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character remains outside a schoolhouse at nighttime carrying a lantern while sleepwalking, but carrying a pillow and wearing a nightcap instead, with a sleepy moon added. Minus the word "Secretary" on Nutty Awards Postcard #20 being abbreviated to "Secy.", the card-type of the award, the signature and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition.

No.3 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
3a Up CHUCK, 3b Heavin' STEVEN and Giant OS1 card #7 Stormy HEATHER



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— A historical source for this title could not be located and the material may be brand-new for this particular card. Penned by art director Mark Newgarden, the title does not follow the award, license or permit format. For the 2013 Chrome OS1 release the card was re-created and printed much darker giving the background a solid blue appearance and many signatures are misaligned.



Color Rough artwork by TOM BUNK — OS1 Chrome Artwork by BUNK + NEWGARDEN





No.4 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
4a Fryin' BRIAN, 4b Electric BILL and Giant OS1 card #22 Junky JEFF



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is found ratting his kid brother out to his dad with darts behind his back, whereas the good samaritan tattletale was previously seen spilling the beans with a close friend and a local copper. Minus the word "Secretary" on Nutty Awards Postcard #16 being abbreviated to "Secy.", the card-type of the license, the signature and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition; also similar to the Kooky Awards #39 'Tattletale Award'.

No.5 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
5a Dead TED, 5b JAY Decay and Giant OS1 card #24 Nervous REX



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The stupidity theme can be found in all three sets with a similar tagline "... the most popular student in the 6th grade — for 5 straight years!" (give or take) where two of the characters are wearing a dunce cap. The Kooky Awards sticker #18 has the title 'Stupidity Award', but is still student-related. Kooky Awards #44 has the title 'Moron Award' with the same print (see Back #33), with the addition of the word "the" on Nutty Awards Postcard #30 person's title, the card-type of the award, the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition.

No.6 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
6a ART Apart, 6b Busted BOB and Giant OS1 card #21 Virus IRIS


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character has been placed on a stack of knowledgeable books with kids running away covering their eardums instead of a disgruntled "listener" cornered against a brick wall or a snotty-faced know-it-all in previous renditions. Minus the addition of the "—" in the last sentence, the card-type of the license (that Nutty Awards #25 does not have), the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the GPK edition. The Kooky Awards sticker #22 "Know it All Award" character also has an academics cap and the similar tagline "For being the greatest authority on nothing".



Kooky Awards Artwork by NORM SAUNDERS — Nutty Awards Artwork by JACK DAVIS





No.7 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
7a Stormy HEATHER, 7b APRIL Showers and Giant OS1 card #35 Wrinkly RANDY



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The 'wanted' GPK character, now a greaser punk bullying a little kid for his ice cream, replaces an alleged burgler and a car thief. The card-type of the award, the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the Nutty Postcards #5 and Garbage Pail Kids editions, whereas the Kooky Awards #34 sticker has the addition of the word 'at the' (instead of 'to any') and 'of your choice' to the tagline "This award entitles you to a scholarship to any reform school".



Kooky Awards Artwork by NORM SAUNDERS — Nutty Awards Artwork by JACK DAVIS





No.8 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
8a ADAM Bomb, Original only for 8b Blasted BILLY and Giant OS1 card #25 Creepy CAROL


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is once again found in a school testing environment with a spyglass or spy scope-type telescope like with the Nutty Postcards image, but the original Kooky Awards is the only one with actual binoculars as seen in the sentence. Minus the word "President" on Nutty Awards Postcard #7 being abbreviated to "Pres.", the card-type of the license, the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition; the Kooky Awards #36 title is quite different with 'Champion Cheater Award'.



Kooky Awards Artwork by NORM SAUNDERS — Nutty Awards Artwork by JACK DAVIS





No.9 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:

No.10 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
10a Tee-Vee STEVIE, 10b Geeky GARY and Giant OS1 card #25 Creepy CAROL



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK rat character is standing there looking a bit more menacingly than the sheepish images of Kooky Awards #38 and Nutty Awards #14. Minus the word "President" on Nutty Awards card being abbreviated to "Pres.", the card-type of the award, the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition; except "lions" has been replaced with the animal "crocodiles". Plus, with the Nutty and Kooky awards, both contain the title 'Rat Fink Award' and not 'Dirty Rat Award'.

No.11 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
11a Itchy RICHIE, 2b Bugged BERT and Giant OS1 card #20 Swell MEL


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character remains within the confines of a telephone booth, but the line now consists of very unusual suspects, including an E.T. parody image. Strangely enough, the image for OS14 cards 555a Alien ED and 555b Phone HOMER, which was intended for the OS1 release, was one of three images removed from the set. Besides the word "President" on Nutty Awards Postcard #4 being abbrievated to "Pres.", the signature and individual's status still remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition; "singing group" is changed to "rock groups" and "nuclear plant explosions" has been added to the last senence.

No.12 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
12a Furry FRAN and 12b Hairy MARY and within GPK Folder #3 and #4



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character has tossed his school books into a trash can, whilst walking away like a traveling hobo, instead of setting fire to his school books. One of the only cards where the word "President" remains the same from the Nutty Awards Postcard #26 and not abbreviated to "Pres." The body of the permit, the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition. The image can also be found within the 1985 GPK Folder #3 and #4 with the permit title in nostalgic 'OS1' pink color.

No.14 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
14a Potty SCOTTY, 14b JASON Basin and Giant OS1 card #36 Wrappin' RUTH


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is finally made kissing-contact, whereas the character was almost there for the Nutty Postcards #27 image; the original Kooky Awards #21 is the only one with more than one lover, but also the only one that states "Girls go out with you by the dozen, it is safer than going out with you alone". The word "President" on Nutty Awards has been abbreviated to "Pres." and the 10 "X"s has been reduced to the sexually-suggestive 3 "X"s for the GPK edition. The card-type is vastly changed and different for both.




Kooky Awards Artwork by NORM SAUNDERS — Nutty Awards + Line Artwork by JACK DAVIS

Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— A historical source for this title could not be located and the material may be brand-new for this particular image and card-type; penned by art director Mark Newgarden. "Boor" in 'Nasty Boors Assoc.' means an unrefined, ill-mannered person. A thug, yahoo, brute, etc cetera.

No.16 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
16a Weird WENDY, 16b Haggy MAGGIE and Giant OS1 card #13 Ashcan ANDY



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is seen holding a report card up to a parental figure, whereas for Nutty Awards #19 and Kooky Awards #11, the character is explaining a far-fetched tall-tale lie. The word "Secretary" from Nutty Awards has not been abbreviated for the Garbage Pail Kids edition, and the card-type, signature, and title all remain the same.





Color Rough by BUNK — Kooky by TOM SUTTON — Nutty Awards + Line Artwork by J. DAVIS





No.17 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
17a Wacky JACKIE, 16b Loony LENNY and Giant OS1 card #6 ART Apart


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is seen holding onto the tail of a bull, muclike with the Nutty Awards #32 card, but is now a female, andthe Kooky Awards #12 card has the character literally lifting the bullock. The sentence "Even your teeth are false" has been taken out for the Garbag Pail Kids edition and all three have the phrase "Cows may come and cows may go — but your bull goes on forever". The signature and job title remain the exact same for all three versions.





Kooky by N. SAUNDERS — Color Rough by BUNK — Nutty Awards + Line Artwork by J. DAVIS





No.18 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
18a Cranky FRANKIE, 18b Bad BRAD and Giant OS1 card #31 Run Down RHODA


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is tearing down the road squeezing a clown horn with victims in his wake, much like with the Nutty Awards #18 card, but is much younger in age, and there is no character in the Kooky Awards #23 version, just a demolished vehicle. All three titles are different (Insane, Loony, Lousy) but have the same card-type except for the Kooky Award which does mention a sidewalk: "For always managing to avoid traffic ... by driving on the sidewalk". The signature and job title remain the exact same for all three.




Color Rough by TOM BUNK — Kooky by NORM SAUNDERS — Nutty Awards by JACK DAVIS





No.19 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
19a Corroded CARL, 19b Crater CHRIS and Giant OS1 card #34 KIM Kong


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character definitely did not succeed — he can be seen wearing a pickle barrel, holding a bottle of hooch, and attempting to sell number two pencils. His award counterparts on Kooky Awards #20 is wearing a goofy hat and bow tie and on Nutty Awards #2 is wearing a dunce cap. The card-type remains exactly the same from Nutty Awards to the GPK edition, but the Kooky Awards has the type "years ago you were a completely unknown failure. Now you are a known failure". The signature and job title remain the exact same for all three versions.
— A second 'Most Unlikely To Succeed Award' can be located as a variation card back to #8 ADAM Bomb, from the Giant Series set, with the title in different font and all new print in a different format and containing the artwork for 'Most Unpopular Student Award'.

21a Virus IRIS, 21b Sicky VICKY, Giant OS1 card #8 ADAM Bomb, Variation Back + Title



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character can be seen being teased with a dart sticking out from the back of his noggin, but for Kooky Awards #37 it's a female as one of the points of a crown and being roughly congratulated for the Nutty Awards #9 card. The card-type remains exactly the same from Nutty Awards to the Garbage Pail Kids edition, except the 'Cadillac' car has been replaced with 'Rolls Royce'. The signature and job title remains the exact same.
— Due to the second 'Most Unlikely To Succeed Award' title located as a variation card for #8 ADAM Bomb the reverse card artwork can be found on two different Giant OS1 card backs.

Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is seen practically climbing over the front seat, similar to Nutty Awards #10 card, with an older female, where the backseat driver is leaning over the front seat and screaming. Minus the word "President" abbreviated to "Pres.", the card-type of the permit, the signature, and job title all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition.

No.23 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
23a Drippy DAN, 23b Leaky LOU and GIANT OS1 card #11 Itchy RICHIE



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is busting out of the room bawling — scared of the mouse holding a sign, but for Kooky Awards #35 the male character is simply cowarding, and running away from a fight for the Nutty Awards #6 card. The card-type remains exactly the same from Nutty Awards to the Garbage Pail Kids edition, but the Kooky Awards has a completely different line that reads "Who is so chicken that his bath water can be put in cans and sold for chicken soup".
— Bunk's artwork was brought forward from the color rough to the final artwork where the girl is enlarged and foot emerges off of the yellow border. The light green colored hair ties, bows, and diaper were changed to a darker blue so it wasn't washed out by the yellow background.

24a Nervous REX, 24b Nerdy NORM and Giant OS1 card #3 Up CHUCK


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is still busy looking at himself in a hand mirror, but hair spraying his (one) hair, whereas in the Nutty Awards #17 card the character is combing his thick locks. One of the only cards where the word "Vice-President" has not only been abbreviated, but changed to simply "Pres." The card-type of the permit, the signature, and job title remain exactly the same for the GPK edition.

— A historical source for this title could not be located and the material may be brand-new for this particular image and card-type; penned by art director Mark Newgarden. The early color rough image shows the character with darker hair and pink over-all stripes. The anchor tattoo is a symbol of the Navy, where the idiom 'curses (or swears) like a sailor' somehow originates from; the British idiom is 'curses (or swears) like a trooper'.

No.26 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
26a Slobby ROBBIE, 26b Fat MATT and Giant OS1 card #14 Potty SCOTTY



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character(s) is/are found in a billiard/pool hall, whereas in the Nutty Awards #29 card the character(s) is/are located in a dilapidated school building. One of the only cards where the job title has been changed from the outdated "H-P.A.A. (Hookey-Players Assn. of America) to the cooler "C.C.A.A. (Class-Cutter Assn of America)" The card-type of the permit and the signature remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition. One of only a handful of times where 'Kids' are smoking either a cigarette or a cigar ... was the skin tone turned to green to make it look like second-hand smoke makes you ill or sick and not cool?

— The GPK character can be seen dragging an old lady with a cane across the street, but for Kooky Awards #33 it's a guy snarling, and for the Nutty Awards #3 the character is swiping an ice cream cone from a kiddie. The card-type remains exactly the same from Nutty Awards to the GPK edition, but reads differently for the Kooky Awards; "For having a heart of gold ... yellow and hard".

No.28 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
28a Oozy SUZY, 28b Meltin' MELISSA, Giant OS1 card #38 Slimy SAM


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The angelic GPK character is sitting in her teacher's lap, similar to the Nutty Awards #22 where the teacher is also patting the kid's head and is a combination of both — the Kooky Awards #4 the teacher is only patting the student's head. The card-type remains exactly the same from Nutty Awards to the Garbage Pail Kids edition, but reads differently for the Kooky Awards; "Only because she does not have a dog" -- and, the signature separates 'I." from "Wanna". Tom Bunk also puts the worm-in-the-apple antic into the piece with the teacher's shocked response.

The title does not follow the 'regular' award, license or permit format, and is a diploma instead.

30a New Wave DAVE, 30b Graffiti PETEY and Giant OS1 card #26 Slobby ROBBIE



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is resolutely sitting in front of the television set, stubbornly refusing to turn the channel or leave, whereas in the Nutty Awards #11 card the female is nonchalantly laying too close to the boob-tube. Except for the last line that has been updated, the card-type of the permit, the signature, and individual's status all remain the same for the Garbage Pail Kids edition. The line changes from the allegedly outdated "... a Western so the neighbors can also enjoy the shooting on the late show." to "... M.T.V. so the entire neighborhood can dance along." A sprig of hair has been added to the top of the bow.

31a Run Down RHODA, 31b Flat PAT, Giant OS1 card #17 Mean GENE



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character, which may have taken inspiration from the OS1 monster-like Kid from card #25, appears to be a combination of several Kooky Awards cards ... the partial card-type of card #1, the 'Ugly' title of card #7, and the grotesque face of #15. The license is also partially different from the Nutty Awards card #13; the title has been changed from 'Dog License' to 'Ugly License' and the middle card type changed from "... for 'before' in cosmetic surgery ads." to "...for iodine bottle labels." The signature and job title remain the exact same.

33a Mad MIKE, 33b Savage STUART, Giant OS1 card #28 Oozy SUZY


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The GPK character is seen wet even though she's holding, but unable to operate, an umbrella — whereas the Nutty Awards (#1) is showing a male kid showing his father a failing report card and itching his ear. The card-type, signature, and position title is exactly the same for both cards. The Kooky Awards (#13 and #44) card-type doesn't match, but the card titles are still relevant. The card type for Kooky Awards #44 actually matches the 'Stupid Student Award' GPK (#5) card back along with the Nutty Awards card.

Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The deviant GPK character is tagging an innocent citizen until he's 'blue' in the face; the Nutty Awards (#31) character is seen blowing a spit-wad at another student and the Kooky Awards (#17) plainly shows a victim with a literal pain-in-the-neck. The card-type remains exactly the same from Nutty Awards to the GPK edition — and, although the job title remains the same, this is one of the only times a signature has been changed, from 'I. M. Creepie' to 'I. M. Annoying'. The Kooky Awards card-type is completely different and simply reads: "For carefully picking your friends ... to pieces".

— The stingy GPK character is seen swiping a bum's #2 pencils to sell for his own sales; the Nutty Awards (#15) character is seen tying a knot in his date's fountain drink straw and the Kooky Awards (#29) character is putting saved monies back into his coin purse/coffers. The card-type remains exactly the same for all three editions. The only subtle change is the job title is changed from the plural 'Tight-Wads' to the singular 'Tight-Wad'.

— The insatiable female GPK character is seen eating everything on the table and on the floor; the Nutty Awards (#21) male character is seen stuffing has face as does the Kooky Awards (#10) — a chicken or turkey leg can be found in all three images. The card-type remains exactly the same for all three editions; the only subtle change is the job title has the inclusion of the word 'of'.

— The GPK character is seen in a candy store making a move on a female patron; the Nutty Awards (#28) character is also seen within a candy-store setting stuffing his pockets. The card-type remains almost exactly the same for both editions — the only subtle change is the object 'sports car' is replaced with 'video game'.

No.40 — Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
40a Unstitched MITCH, 40b Damaged DON, Giant OS1 card #15 Ailin' AL



Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The filthy GPK character is found soaking in a tub; the Nutty Awards (#8) character is seen in a literal pig pen whereas the Kooky Awards (#6) character is also in a tub scrubbing his own back. The card-type remains exactly the same for all three editions. The only subtle change is the word 'sox' has been replaced with the word 'socks'.

No.41— Reverse card artwork for the Original and Chrome characters:
41a Mean JEAN and 41b Joltin' JOE and within GPK Folder #1 and #2


Artwork by TOM BUNK — Ribbon Artwork by MARK NEWGARDEN

— The trashed GPK character is found leaning against a garbage can, the Nutty Awards (#23) character is simply a guys unkempt mug and smoking a cigarette, and the Kooky Awards (#32) image is only a football. The card-type remains exactly the same for the GPK and Nutty Awards editions, but the signature is completely different, 'Messy Schmidt' changed to 'Dirty Dan', respectively. The Kooky Awards card reads: 'For having skin that looks like a pig's, also for having manners and health habits to match'. The image can also be found within the 1985 GPK Folder #1 and #2 with the award title in nostalgic 'OS1' pink color.
