Storyline

Classic Saturday-morning cartoon series featuring magical blue elf-like creatures called Smurfs. The Smurfs, named for their personalities, inhabit a village of mushroom houses in an enchanted forest. These loveable creatures are led by Papa Smurf and live carefree... except for one major threat to their existance: Gargamel, an evil but inept wizard who lives in a stone-built house in the forest; and his feline companion, the equally nasty Azrael. Typical stories deal with the Smurfs' efforts to fight off Gargamel, who wanted to do one of several things to the blue creatures including eat them, make them slaves and gain their magical secrets in order to gain dignity among the wizard's fraternity. More than once, the Smurfs had to save Gargamel from his back-firing plans or even eviler wizards. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Of the episodes featuring Johan and Peewit, seven of them, including "The Magic Fountain" and "The Haunted Castle," were based on Peyo's albums. The others were specifically written for the series, probably because many of the Johan and Peewit adventures don't feature the Smurfs at all as they were written before they were invented. Similarly, Smurf characters were added to the adaptations of Johan & Peewit stories that were published before the Smurfs introduction. See more »

THE animated series of my childhood
15 January 2001 | by cLoNeSee all my reviews

There's no competition there. This is THE series of my childhood. I considered myself the biggest fan ever. I bought every kind of Smurfs merchandise I could afford and even dressed up as Papa Smurf at Purim (the Jewish equivalent of Halloween).

The series was cute without pushing it. The Smurfs were charming and adorable. The storyline were child friendly, but still clever and inventive. I will never forget my favorite episode where a spooky mosquito bites a smurf and turns him to a purple zombie who then bites other smurfs, turning them all to zombies one by one. It was quite spooky and the climax was better than many horror-thriller movies I've seen. Classic magical stuff.

*Sigh* Today's series are either too quirky or too mushy.
