Good news, Garbage Pail Kids fans. 2020 is the 35th anniversary of those disgusting little scamps made famous by gross-out trading cards in the mid-’80s. So, of course with that anniversary comes a lot of great Garbage Pail Kids merch.

Earlier this year, we announced the awesome GPK Monopoly edition. Now, Walmart has pre-orders up for their Garbage Pail Kids Advent Calendar. Meaning you can count down the days to Christmas or your favorite holiday in true gross out style.

The cast of 25 classic GPK are all here to assist in the countdown. Each classic character comes in the form of a small flat plastic figure.

Any chance to spend more time with disgusting GPK is the exact direction I’m going to go in.

If you still haven’t seen the highly bizarre 1987 GPK Movie you definitely should give it a shot. If anything it will weird you the hell out for the entire evening.

The film’s synopsis goes like this:

Dodger must confront the struggles of life as he is visited by the Garbage Pail Kids and intimidated by some older bullies.
