Smurfs are happy, little woodland beings created by Belgian writer/illustrator Pierre “Peyo” Culliford (1926-1992). First introduced in the comic series Johan and Peewit in 1958, the Smurfs quickly grew in popularity gaining their own title in 1959, and a Belgian animated series that ran from 1961-1967. The Smurf’s breakthrough came with the introduction of the Smurfs to the American audience with the Hanna-Barbera cartoon Smurfs. Smurfs ran from 1981-1990, and cemented the adorable blue-skinned characters in American pop-culture lore. The Smurfs have since been featured in three full-length movies, as well as two animated short features. The Smurfs have made their triumphant return to television with a CGI animated series released in Belgium in May, 2021, and subsequently released in the United States in September, 2021, on Nickelodeon.
