|Hairy GARY / Brutal BRAD|
|Series(s)||Old Series 2|
|Card Number(s)||55a / 55b|
Hairy GARY or Brutal BRAD is card 55 in the original second series.
The card shows a caveman in a leopard-skin loincloth/toga carrying away a cavewoman he has just bonked on the head.
The card lampoons the popular belief that cavemen chose partners by knocking the women of their choice on the head and then dragging them back to their caves. It may also be a riff on opprobrious and abusive partners.
Hairy Gary appeared in the Garbage Pail Kids Animated Series' Indiana Jones spoof "Idaho Spud". Here, he was reinvented as a vine-swinging jungle lord, in the vein of Tarzan and George of the Jungle. He has Kim Kong as a sidekick and he saves Idaho Spud and his friends from Lizard Liz. Afterwards, he helps Idaho Spud enter the Temple of Trash to find the treasure.
