Did You Know?


The reason that Smurfette does not appear in this film adaptation is that the original comic book story this film was based upon was published several years before she made her debut ("La Schtroumpfette"/"The Smurfette") in 1966. Similarly, the evil sorcerer Gargamel (along with his pet cat Azrael) does not appear in this film, because he made his debut in an early story ("Le Voleur de Schtroumpfs"/"The Smurfnapper") in the Smurfs' own comic series in 1959, a year after "The Smurfs and the Magic Flute" (although he did appear in some of T.V.A. Dupuis' B&W animated TV shorts from the early 60s). See more »

Narrator: Once upon a time... wait a minute! This isn't just another once upon a time story. This story doesn't follow the book at all. It all began in a kingdom a long time ago in the middle ages. By decree of the good king, the kingdom was having a great celebration.

The pre-Hanna-Barbara Smurfs
8 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most of us, remember "The Smurfs" as the Hanna-Barbara show from the 80s, right? Well, this isn't the Smurfs you grew up with. This movie was released in Belgium before anyone in the US knew what they were and later dubbed into English in 1983 to appease the masses yearning for those little blues freaks of nature. Well in the movie, Johan, a young knight and his annoying dwarf sidekick Peewee find a magic flute and a bad guy (not Gargamel!) steals it or something and they have to find it or something, they learn that the flute was made by the Smurfs, who live in an dimension or something so they drop acid or what and go to this other dimension. They meet the Smurfs, well more or less Papa Smurf and his crew. There's no Smurfette, no Baby, no Smurflings etc and they all sing and speak in unison. Hefty doesn't and have a tattoo and Brainy can't shut up. Johan and PeeWee explains to Papa what happened, and the Smurfs have to cut down another tree and make another flute to help Johan and PeeWee. I don't really what happens next all I remember is it end with Pee Wee throwing a hissy fit or something. Any way the Smurfs don't appear until like an hour in the movie, so it's kind of boring, mostly!
