  • The Smurfs are a fictional species of small blue creatures who live in Smurf Village, somewhere in the woods near South Park. They appeared in the background in the episode, "Imaginationland" and "Imaginationland, Episode III". In "Dances with Smurfs", they had a more prominent role as part of the focus of the episode.
  • In 1976, Stuart R. Ross, an American media and entertainment entrepreneur who saw the Smurfs while traveling in Belgium, entered into an agreement with Editions Dupuis and Peyo, acquiring North American and other rights to the characters, whose original name was "les Schtroumpfs". Subsequently, Ross launched the Smurfs in the United States in association with a California company, Wallace Berrie and Co., whose figurines, dolls and other Smurf merchandise became a hugely popular success. NBC president Fred Silverman's daughter, Melissa, had a Smurf doll of her own that he had bought for her at a toy shop while they were visiting Aspen, Colorado. Silverman thought that a series based on the Smurfs might make a good addition to his Saturday-morning lineup.

  • Smurfs (from Les Schtroumpfs, the original French-language name) are a fictional race of small blue creatures. They were created by the Belgian cartoonist Peyo (Pierre Culliford), who added them to a comic strip series, Johan et Pirlouit, which he was writing for the magazine Spirou. The Smurfs first appeared in the installment of 23 October 1958; and independent Smurf stories appeared in 1959, together with the first merchandising. Smurfs were popularized in the English-speaking world with The Smurfs, an animated television series from Hanna-Barbera Productions that was shown on NBC from 12 September 1981 to 25 August 1990. Almost all Smurfs look essentially alike. They are mostly male, very short, with blue skin. They wear white trousers with a hole for their short tails, a white hat in the style of a Phrygian cap, and sometimes have some additional accessory that identifies a personality. Smurfs do walk and run; but they often move by skipping on both feet. They love to eat sarsaparilla leaves; and, in the cartoon series, they also eat sarsaparilla berries, which they call "smurfberries". The Smurfs live in a village of mushroom-shaped houses that is located in an area inaccessible to humans. (This is desolate and rocky in the comics, but deep in the forest in the animated series.) Their community generally takes the form of a cooperative, sharing, and kind environment based on the principle that each Smurf has something he or she is good at, and thus contributes to Smurf society as he or she can. In return, each Smurf appears to be given the necessities of life, from housing and clothes to food, without using any money in exchange. Papa Smurf is the leader of the community. Other smurfs are generally named after their personal characters (for example, Brainy Smurf or Greedy Smurf) or their profession (for example, Clockwork Smurf or Painter Smurf). A characteristic of the Smurf language is the frequent use of the word "smurf" and its derivatives in a variety of meanings. The Smurfs replace enough nouns and verbs in everyday speech with "smurf" as to make their conversations barely understandable. However, so that the viewer of the animated series is able to understand the characters, only some words (or a portion of a word) are replaced with "smurf". Interpretation relies on context.
