When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours -- in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. Written by

Did You Know?
The Smurfs (along with Gargamel and Azrael) travel from medieval times to modern times. This is based on The Smurfs
(1981)'s ninth season, where the Smurfs would travel in time to different eras. The main time-travellers in both this film and that season are Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, and Grouchy Smurf. See more
When Patrick Winslow encounters his boss as he's coming in on the first day of work after his promotion, she comments that he seems to have "nervous energy". He gestures awkwardly in the air with both arms and replies, "nervous energy's what's going on up in here!" Halfway through his reply the camera angle changes and he's no longer lifting both arms; he's gesturing with only his right arm, while his left arm is clutching a folder to his chest. See more
There is a place. A place that knows no sadness, where even feeling blue is a happy thing. A place inhabited by little blue beings three apples high. It lies deep within an enchanted forest, hidden away beyond the medieval village. Most people believe this place is made up, only to be found in books or children's imagination. Well, we beg to differ.
Animated Smurfs and some other characters and objects appear throughout the closing credits, often in relevant places. For example, Vanity Smurf appears next to the "makeup artists" credits, a candle appears next to "lighting technician", Handy Smurf next to "construction foreman", Painter Smurf next to "illustrators", Chef Smurf near "catering", and so on.
