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.
Before saying something else, I never thought of this as Japanese stuff. I always had the idea that this was a local production. But I'm sure that many people around the world thought the same. Still, I am surprised that this is an anime TV series. While searching for this on IMDb, when I noticed that "Mitsubachi" name, I thought: «What is this? Japanese? That word strongly resembles Mitsubishi - the car maker».
I really can't remember much from this, but one thing is for sure: when I was a child in my early school days (and even before that), I used to watch this everyday and I loved it. Also, I used to listen all the time that wonderful opening song, which is absolutely memorable and nostalgic (in my country we had the most beautiful Maya the Bee's song). Such a sweet and lovely song that could never be forgotten and it's a powerful reminder of childhood days, such distant days now.
I do remember vaguely that this was a quite humble cartoon, harmless and perfect for children. I remember Maya as a good and cute honey bee, as well as one with hunger for adventure. The artwork used to be simple, but pretty good.
Overall, this is a cartoon which is as simple as a child's tear but also something with strong nostalgic value. I will never forget childhood, when life was beautiful. Those were great times, like we'll never have again.
