Quotes

Grouchy: [to a Snow-Snurf] Isn't Christmas about getting what you want? Well, I want a hang glider! Why do I even bother to celebrate Christmas if all I ever get is THIS - the same old boring useless hat? I mean, how many hats does a Smurf need?
[the Snow-Smurf's head falls on Grouchy]
Grouchy: Oh, who asked you? I... HATE... HATS!

A Christmas animation that focuses on the negatives
1 December 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This short animation is about how the Smurfs make Grouchy like Christmas again.

After watching "The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol", I find myself in a rather gloomy mood. The story is dark, with lots of grumpiness, antagonism and dissatisfaction. Even though they say "don't be grumpy", the brain picks up "grumpy" at a subconscious level, so there is a constant stream of negative words and negative themes. The constant negativity gets viewers down. And there is even a scene about captivity! Even though the ending contains some positive scenes, it is far from enough to lift the gloomy mood the film spent 20 minutes to create. I cannot see how this animation can make people feel merry and joyful.
