I'll be Smurfy later
18 December 2010 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

The humans and Smurfs are going about their Yuletide traditions in their own separate way until they cross paths with a poor old man who is unable to effectively look after his sick wife. A heartless thief pinching gold from the humans also learns the 'true meaning of Xmas' or some other nonsense when the Smurfs reprimand him.

Why does every Xmas film/TV special try to preach this 'true meaning' morality on us? Plus, it's a different thing each time, rarely featuring baby Jesus. So what's the true 'true meaning'? It's still a cozy little cartoon that will help you get in the mood. Hardly a classic though.
