The Smurfs coming to DVD - VIDEO
Choke on hot blue nostalgia, Generation X.
The Smurfs, that popular animated program I and many of my friends watched religiously as children of the '80s, is finally coming out on DVD. The Smurfs: Season One, Volume One is a two-disc set including the first nineteen episodes of the first season, along with "The Smurfs Springtime Special" and "Smurfs: The Music Video." The set comes out December 4.
While very much a part of '80s popular culture, The Smurfs actually have their origins in Belgium as a creation of the cartoonist Peyo in the late '50s. The tiny blue creatures first appeared in Peyo's comic titled Johan & Pirlouit. Over the following decades they made the leap from print to film, eventually ending up on TV screens in the United States.
Personally, my favorite Smurf was always Brainy, so I've placed a clip featuring him below. Who were your favorite Smurfs?
