Classic Saturday-morning cartoon series featuring magical blue elf-like creatures called Smurfs. The Smurfs, named for their personalities, inhabit a village of mushroom houses in an enchanted forest. These loveable creatures are led by Papa Smurf and live carefree... except for one major threat to their existance: Gargamel, an evil but inept wizard who lives in a stone-built house in the forest; and his feline companion, the equally nasty Azrael. Typical stories deal with the Smurfs' efforts to fight off Gargamel, who wanted to do one of several things to the blue creatures including eat them, make them slaves and gain their magical secrets in order to gain dignity among the wizard's fraternity. More than once, the Smurfs had to save Gargamel from his back-firing plans or even eviler wizards. Written by

Dame Barbara is called "Lady Barbara" in the "Johan and Peewit" comic stories. Unlike in the cartoon series, she is not Princess Savina's governess as the latter was created by Studio Peyo exclusively for the cartoon series. See more »
Nature Smurf, this time your love of animals has gone too far.
Natural 'Nat' Smurf:
I can't help it, Papa Smurf. Azrael got his foot caught in one of Gargamel's traps. I couldn't just leave him there to die.
Okay, but as soon as his foot is better, then back he goes. Understand?

I'm really surprised when I see that so few user comments on such a hallmark show. To me the Smurfs defined the 80's. And most importantly, it was what a cartoon should be - plain and simple fun, a touch of morale lessons and most importantly, very little violence.
When you consider other cartoons that were popular in the 80's like Thunder Cats, the Smurfs come out way up ached, in all departments. What makes the Smurfs more interesting than its counterparts is the fact that it also was intellectual, not just a shallow action adventure cartoon, so even grownups can have fun watching it.
If you ever get a chance to watch it, don't miss it.
