VIDEO: The Garbage Pail Kids Movie (1987)

Ever wonder what Mendo’s show would be like if he had to think of a movie to review, watch the movie, film his review, and edit it, all in less than two days because he has to go out of town for a few weeks? Because, if you did… that’s strangely specific. Regardless, for his 49th episode, Mendo decides to go out of his comfort zone and review a classic bad movie! …And the results may surprise you. You like that? Because that’s how we hook you in!

    Garmonbozia!

      Yes, that’s the stuff!

    Oh man, I didn’t make it very far into this movie. Blurgh. I still don’t understand how you’d like it- even the cover is repulsive!

    But then again, I know your kryptonite!

    • MichaelANovelli

      Don’t start something you can’t finish, now…

      • FullofQuestions1

        Well, I’m not telling you to review it!

        • MichaelANovelli

          Because you know what’s good for you…

          • FullofQuestions1

            God, I can’t even mention the title?!

    I would say part of the reason this movie gets crapped on for its gross out humor but something like the Toxic Avenger is a semi beloved cultural icon is that there is a right way and a wrong way to do gross out humor. I can’t define it, and I can’t do a more in depth analysis of why the humor of Garbage Pail Kids fails because I have not and will never see it.

    I would also like to say that I would not like to be in the same room as someone capable of laughing at any part of Cannibal Holocaust. There’s just nothing to laugh at unless watching the movie completely burns out your empathy circuits.

    Now Cannibal Ferox on the other hand, that I can laugh at because it so obviously wants to be the same kind of soul scouring pitch black nightmare that Cannibal Holocaust is and…

    Wow. I know entirely too much about cannibal films.

      Well, I always get a chuckle out of that one bit from the score that sounds like a Frank Zappa song, as you’ll recall…

  • MichaelANovelli

    Having had time to reflect, I would say that of all the reviews I’ve ever done, this is one of them! 🙂

      A reference to the tagline from MST3K: The Movie? Good call!

        Truly, I am a man of taste!

          You’ve been around for a long, long year. Et cetera, et cetera.

          Modest too.

  • Legend of the Guardians?

    • MichaelANovelli

      Close, but you’re way off!

    I wonder if Mr. Mendo is actually a Garbage Pail Kid, brought to life ala the Re-Animator, then given a soul by Mephistopheles, and broadcast to the universe thanks to Lynn Minmei. That would be some Cthulhuian level evil right there if that was the case. I’m going to go back to watching my Hatsune Miku videos now to try and cleanse my mind of rational thought.

    • MichaelANovelli

      All that thought and yet nobody ever sends in stories to Mendopiece Fanfic Theatre…

      • MephLord

        I don’t think DC would approve of a Mr. Mendo vs Lobo fanfic…even if Lex Luthor suffers a crowbar to the skull in said fanfic.

        • MichaelANovelli

          The seal has been broken! You must write this!

          • MephLord

            I finished a four page script if you want to circulate it around the Booth it’s featuring some of them if they want to read it. It’s Part One basically so no Luthor or Minmei in this but plenty of Lobo and Killer Frost makes an appearance. And if Sofie, Roland, Jackula and other Boothers want to voice their parts that would make me more inclined to continue the warped narrative.

            Maybe it would be more feasable to do a Mr. Mendo/Mr. Lobo crossover, instead of DC’s Lobo. You kind of look alike, anyway.

          • MichaelANovelli

            Cool. Hurry up and write it, already!

      • danbreunig

        Maybe not fanfic so much, but I had you playing a bass once in a caricature. Would that suffice?

        • MichaelANovelli

          Was this the infamous Agony Anarchists comic book I keep hearing about?

          • danbreunig

            The Agony Anarchists thing was really the fan art I did of you three jamming together on stage as a hard rock/metal power trio. Hence, Mendo on bass–well *I* can picture you as a singer-bassist, kinda like a modern Geddy or Lemmy… The comic is something else entirely.

          • MichaelANovelli

            Well, hurry up and finish it so we can promote it for you!
