Happy Smurfday!


La, la, la la la la
La, la la la la.....
Do you remember the smurfs? I LOVED watching the smurfs. Papa Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Smurfette, and mean old Gargamel...they made my Saturday mornings! Well, apparently they just turned 50! Holy cow! It seems they were actually a comic first before becoming hugely popular in the 80s with their tv series. Because of this, their company has decided it's time to re-introduce them to the world. Late next year a Smurf movie will be released, and then hopefully 26 new 30 minute episodes for our kiddies to watch. The characters will be updated, and more girls added to the little mushroom house community. So, it will be interesting to see what they come up with. But, I think it's just Smurfy! Much better than most of the cartoons that they've got on tv nowadays don't you think?

OH my gosh! I haven't thought about Smurfs for a long time. I did love that show too. Although I am wondering now.....why is there only ONE girl Smurf??

Are they really 50 years old? I never would have guessed that. I thought they were totally from the 80's.

I used to get up at 6am on Sat to watch the smurfs, then go back to sleep. I loved the smurfs!
