The Smurfs is a comic and television franchise centered on a fictional group of small blue creatures called Smurfs, created by and first introduced as a series of illustrated comic strips by the Belgian cartoonist Pierre Culliford (also known as Peyo) on October 23, 1958. Culliford's initial comic first appeared in the Belgian magazine Spirou, and several decades later was adapted into an English language children's television series by Hanna-Barbera Productions, titled The Smurfs.
Far, Far Away, in a little mushroom village live a group of little blue pixies in short trousers and white bonnets called Smurfs. Only as tall as 3 apples, they speak in 'Smurf', a language only they understand. The Smurfs are carefree, peaceful creatures that live in harmony with nature. But they have a nasty habit of wanting to act like humans which causes them 1001 problems!
The Smurfs are a worldwide smash and have been for a decades. Over 300 million Smurf Toys have been sold and 256 episodes of this series were produced over 9 seasons by Hanna Barbera. A truly defining animation series that continues to captivate generations of fans young and old.
