Garbage Pail Kids were created by the Topps Chewing Gum, Inc. in 1985 by Mark Newgarden and Art Spiegelman, both were art directors, editors writers and artists for the series, who came up with the concept ideas for the sixteen series of GPK. Both named the characters with the naming panel also including Len Brown and Stan Hart, with suggestions by the artists, writers and even last minute name changes by Arthur Shorin, the then Pres. of Topps. Artists such as John Pound (acrylic and airbrush) and Tom Bunk (gouache and airbrush), both who completed around 90% of the finished art, were commissioned to create the final art for the card fronts, later joined with James Warhola (oils), David Burke, Bennett, Chet Darnstaedter (Xno), Mae Jeon and Bill Wray (one artwork front). Card backs were drawn by Tom Bunk, Jay Lynch, Howard Cruse, and Richard McGuire who animated the "Flick It" section of the later series. The writers included Newgarden, Spiegelman, Lynch, and John Mariano. Other individuals who assisted by penciling, inking, coloring, or doing lettering were Carole Sobocinski, Grass Green, and Javi Soler. Others contributed ideas and sketches and such as Len Brown, Frank Santopadre (writer), Stephen Kroninger, Bob Sikoryak, and Paul Karasik. These collaborators made Garbage Pail Kids the most hyped and talked about craze in non-sport card history.

In the late summer of 2003, Topps took advantage of the increasingly nostalgic craze for 1980's games and toys and released seven all-new GPK sets over the next several years through 2011, plus three Flashback sets with orginal GPK artwork content (including 'lost' and 'all-new' material), and a rejuvinated brand-new GPK sets through 2013 with a nostaglic GPK feel, two chrome technoloy releases, and new year-ly sets started in 2014. Art directed originally by John Williams (who became the supervising editor), followed by Jeff Zapata, and later by Colin Walton, the new GPK craze is comprised of veteran GPK artists John Pound, Tom Bunk, James Warhola, Frank Santopadre, and Jay Lynch (who supplied concept and card back artwork - along with Scott Shaw) as well as a long list of next-generation artists.
