FtL 411 – Garbage Pail Kids

A group of homeless children made of literal garbage defend the world from toy destroying adults.

This week on Failure To Launch we trash Garbage Pail Kids, starring the voices of Tara Strong (Powerpuff Girls, Fairly Odd Parents, My Little Pony) Cree Summer (Inspector Gadget, Tiny Toons) and Alyson Court (X-Men, Beetlejuice).

Based on the popular trading cards of the 80s that were in turn a parody of the popular dolls “The Cabbage Patch Kids”, Garbage Pail kids is a confusing fun mess.

The toys of the world are mysteriously going haywire and it’s up to five garbage children and a hot dog to solve the mystery! But don’t worry about that because the show starts with a UFO movie parody!

Giant ants invade the city! Overpriced toys! The Garbage Messiah! Adults hiding in bushes! Self Harm! A dirty old mattress factory! Slime! Men made of fingers and a security guard who has seen some shit! Shit you push down. Shit that never really leaves you. I need a drink.

And you will too!

So stick around and listen to what may be the strangest episode ever of Failure to Launch.
