"Garbage Pail Kids" is an American animated television series that was produced in 1987 and 1988, based on the popular Garbage Pail Kids bubble gum cards, produced and directed by Bob Hathcock and co-written and developed by Flint Dille.

The series stars the characters Split Kit, Elliot Mess, Terri Cloth, Patty Putty, and Clogged Duane as gross looking kids with abilities to help others. In the first two episodes, they have normal alter-egos, which transform into their "Garbage Pail" identities; later episodes show them exclusively in their Garbage Pail looks.

The show also features parodies of movies like the "Indiana Jones" series, "Superman", and "The Fly". It also has segments between stories, such as "Garbage Pail Groaners" (jokes) and "Would We Lie To You?" (facts).

Though an entire season was ordered and due to be aired by CBS, it was pulled a few days before its debut, and was replaced with an extra half hour of "Muppet Babies", which had been expanded to 90 minutes at the Garbage Pail Kids' expense. Despite never airing the United States, it did air in several other countries, including Spain, the United Kingdom, Iceland, Israel and the Philippines.

He wears a red and yellow baseball cap on his top foot, wears a watch on his right hand, has a pegged leg where his left leg should be, wears a white T-shirt with a red ringer (on the card it reads "Rejected by #216"), and blue shorts.
