Did You Know?


In "Kow Tow We Won't Bow," Nat called a "redbird" to help the Smurflings cross the river. However, this "redbird" is called a scarlet tanager, a bird species only found in North America, not Europe (which is the setting of the Smurfs cartoon series). It should have not appeared at all. See more »


Smurfette: Don't worry, Smurflings. At least Nat can tell the crocodiles that we mean them no harm.
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!
