About The Smurfs
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 the menace, 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.”
I was delighted to see my children enjoying a show that I myself loved watching as a child. The memories and flashbacks were overflowing my mind as I found myself equally intrigued as my children with the new Smurfs movie. They really don’t make cartoons like they use to and it was nice to relive a classic show with my kids. This show is just as great as I remembered it to be and a fantastic addition to our collection.
The The Smurfs: Smurfs to the Rescue! released today and I highly recommend you add this classic show to your collection!
