Storyline

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 Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

One of the best 80s cartoon programmes I've ever seen!
20 March 2017 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I watched this 80s cartoon TV programme as younger and I thought it was very good and also funny. It is one of my favourite cartoons of all time.

I remember it was shown on the BBC about years ago.

I've heard it is based on a comic strip by a famous Belgian cartoonist Peyo (real name: Pierre Culliford).

The series was produced by Hanna-Barbera Production, most famous for The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, Top Cat, Wacky Races and Yogi Bear.
