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!

Smurfing Christmas
2 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its the spin on Dicken's, 'A Christmas Carol' Smurfs style.

Grouchy Smurf is sick and tired of getting the same stupid present from Papa Smurf every year and is unhappy that he does not get the present he really wants.

This leads to Grouchy Smurf to behave badly to the other Smurfs and refuses to celebrate Christmas. The Smurfs of Christmas Past, Present and Future appear to teach him to appreciate Christmas. The Smurf of Christmas Future shows Grouchy a future Christmas where all the Smurfs will wander into the forest and get captured by Gargamel.

The film is bookended with CGI animation before going to the traditional animation for the bulk of the story. Kids who enjoy the Smurfs film will appreciate this cartoon the most. At least its spirit is true to the Dickens story.
