The Smurfs are a group of over 100 bluish, three-apple tall creatures who live in the mushroom homes of Smurf Village. They are led by 543-year-old Papa Smurf (who doesn’t look a day over 530). Their lives would be perfect were it not for their villainous Gargamel, a wizard who spends his days trying to capture them to eat, turn into gold, or for other evil reasons. Gargamel’s cat Azrael adds to themenace, always looking for a tasty, Smurfy snack.
Produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, The Smurfs originally premiered as part of NBC’s Saturday morning programming lineup.The Emmy® nominated series ran for nine seasons on NBC earning a 42% share of the U.S. Saturday morning audience.
“What is wonderful about the Smurfs as characters is that while they entertain audiences, they also manage to present us with important themes like friendship, sharing and having a sense of community. While The Smurfs exude optimism and fun, they also teach us valuable life lessons. That’s part of the reason the show has remained so popular with television audiences throughout the years,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. She added, “We are pleased to release another volume of this delightful series.”
-Hayley is absolutely a fanatic of the Smurfs. It was one of the first movies she has ever seen in the theatre, so naturally, she was so excited to receive this DVD! This DVD brings me back to my childhood when I would wake up every morning and watch the Smurfs. It is a fun and entertaining collection that will keep your kids occupied for quite awhile.
