Trivia

In keeping with the original Smurf albums by Peyo, Brainy Smurf is repeatedly hit on the head with a hammer (or by a stick) by the other Smurfs to shut him up. This was deemed to violent and too easy to copy by American censors, so in the later Hanna-Barbera cartoon series, he is always catapulted out (either by being tossed out or kicked) of their sight instead.

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

May be disorienting!
21 May 2004 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

Many adults forget that children used to the animated series "the Smurfs" may be disoriented by "The Smurfs and the Magic Flute". I don't forget how confused I was when my parents brought this home from the video store. First off, none of the usual human characters in the animated series appear in the movie. (Missing is Gargamel, among others). The biggest difference is that the voices of the smurfs are completely different than they are in the show, and only a fraction of the personalities in the show are represented. The voices have an eery and, frankly, annoying sound effect on them, making them sound even more chirpy and otherworldy than they ever did on TV.

These inexplicable inconsistencies are coupled with some basic faults: The smurfs do not appear until 20 minutes into the film, long after your kids have left the room or turned on the X box. The story is hard to follow and uninteresting. The magic Flute amounts to nothing more than an oddity for "hardcore" smurf fans.
