Did You Know?


In "Kow Tow We Won't Bow," Smurfette introduced to the Smurflings several flowers in the forest including a jack-in-the-pulpit. However, jack-in-the-pulpits were unknown in Europe until they were imported from North America in the 17th century. The background of the Smurf cartoon series is the late Middle Ages (circa 14th-15th century), early for the understanding and cultivation of jack-in-the-pulpits in Europe. See more »

Natural 'Nat' Smurf: Yeah, well, I don't know, Smurfette. I have a little trouble with snakes and frogs, and well, crocodiles...
Smurfette: Trouble?
Natural 'Nat' Smurf: Yeeeah! I do great with turtles though.
Smurfette: [Sees crocodiles] Those aren't turtles, Nat! Help!
