the packaging and card size, the New Zealand The Garbage Gang
1st Series is almost the same as the United
States Garbage Pail Kids 1st Series. The card
variations are exactly the same, but there are different
character names used for thirteen of the cards (5b Creepy Terry,
6a Mart Apart, 11a Itchy Mickey, 12a Furry Frances, 15a Ailin'
Alan, 18b Bad Bob, 19a Corroded Charlie, 20b Kinky Dickie, 24a
Nervy Nigel, 24b Nerdy Norman, 31a Run Down Rachel, 35a
Wrinkly Rikki, and 41a Mean Dean). These are the same
changes that the United Kingdom Garbage
Pail Kids 1st Series has except the New Zealand The Garbage
Gang 1st Series has a "The Garbage Gang" banner instead
of a "Garbage Pail Kids" banner.
