NAT Nerd or CLARK Can't is card number 172 in the original fifth series.


The card shows an obese, nerdy boy wearing a shabby, stained, and ill-fitting superhero costume with "GPK" emblazoned on his chest. He's carrying some comics and has a box filled with more comics at his feet.

He and the other six Kids were captured by the State Home for the Ugly when they were looking for their friends, the other Garbage Pail Kids. Dodger and Captain Manzini were able to rescue the seven Kids along with everyone else incarcerated at the Home for the Ugly, but were too late to rescue the other Garbage Pail Kids. Nat Nerd was played by Larry Green and voiced by legendary voice artist Jim Cummings, who also voiced Greaser Greg.

Nat Nerd also made several cameo appearances in the Garbage Pail Kids Animated Series. He was even the main character in the movie parody "Supernerd", a parody of the 1978 Superman movie.
