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.
A viewer notified media watchdog Reverend Donald Wildmon that, in one episode of this series, it looks like Mighty Mouse reaches into a pocket and snorts cocaine from his hand to regain his strength. Wildmon was disbelieving at first, but after investigating the episode and learning of producer Ralph Bakshi's background (e.g., directing the adult cartoon Fritz The Cat), alerted the media that this may have been intentional. Given the numerous other instances of risque humor and adult jokes in this series, a drug reference wouldn't be out of the question. Bakshi denies it to this day, maintaining that Mighty Mouse was merely smelling some crushed flowers and that the white jet leading from his hand to his nose was merely a cartoon "smell line" moving super-fast from the mighty inhale. The episode was immediately pulled from the rotation so that no one would see it. See more »

I think I was like 6 when this was on the air and it used to freak me out. not that I didn't like it, I remember totally not understanding any of it. but, 4 years later when Ren and Stimpy premiered, I became totally obsessed with the same warped comedy. I wish I could find a copy of this cartoon. it, and the twisted adventures of felix the cat. that reminds me Ralph Bakshi did NOT create Fritz the Cat. He stole it from R. Crumb. anyway, this is a great cartoon, highly recommended
