The card spoofs humanity's fear of nuclear war. The name is a take-off on the atomic bomb

Further Releases ReissuesEdit

Many cards in later series' imitated Adam Bomb. The card itself has been reprinted in ANS1. Multiple variations on the card exist in the Flashback series, and the card was paid homage to by Topps' "Trash Can Trolls" card series as well.

TriviaEdit

Adam Bomb was such an iconic Garbage Pail Kids character that he has appeared on the wrapper for the first five series. Despite being the apparent mascot of the Garbage Pail Kids, he was completely absent in The Garbage Pail Kids Movie and the unaired cartoon. The most likely reason for his absense in the movie is because of the tight budget. He may have been absent from the cartoon because it was feared he may be too violent due to his head bursting open with a mushroom cloud.
