The Smurfs are little blue creatures that live in mushroom houses in a forest inhabited mainly by their own kind. The smurfs average daily routine is attempting to avoid Gargomel, an evil man who wants to kill our little blue friends.
Each themed season had an opening of its own when they originally aired. In 1977, the kids entering the schoolhouse in "Figure Eight" was used. A few years later, the song including Schoolhouse Rocky seen on the VHS compilations was used. The DVDs exclude it but the 30th Anniversary Edition kept the tune of it for the menu's intro to Disc One and the schoolhouse footage for Disc Two. In video releases recurring series singer, Bob Dorough was the voice of the jukebox announcing each upcoming short while Jack Sheldon's conductor from "Conjunction Junction" was the Chef announcing each special (leading to the title).

Someone put a lot of love and work into these cartoons. These are some of the cleverest and highest quality work done for children I've ever seen.
They teach people about language, science, math, and US history and politics. Most adults could learn from these cartoons as well as children. The entire time you watch, you're entertained and delighted and then when you're done you've learned something new and you'll remember it for a long time.
This is a prime example of talented people doing something they love and doing it well. For the most part, pure genius!
