The Cabbage Patch Kids could be headed to the small screen again in a special that might be produced by Galen Walker, who is producing a live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles feature film for Paramount.
Original Appalachian Artworks, which owns the brand, said Monday it has sold TV rights to Walker.
A spokesperson said a script is in the works for an animated TV special featuring the Cabbage Patch Kids, which were created in 1978 but became a phenomenon in 1983. Through the years, Cabbage Patch dolls have been made by Coleco, Hasbro, Mattel and Toys “R” Us Kids. “It’s a brand filled with many positive messages for kids,” Walker said.
