Meet The Smurfs

With about 100 different Smurfs running around Smurf village, give or take a Smurf, it can be a difficult task to keep everybody happy.  You have to have patience, brains, maturity…and perhaps a beard.
Papa Smurf
As the wise leader of the Smurfs, Papa Smurf truly embodies these qualities and knows how to handle his Smurfs. Papa can often be found with his spell book in his mushroom, concocting potions to protect his Smurfs from the evil wizard, Gargamel.  When Papa’s magic foretells of impending disaster, he faces his biggest challenge yet: going toe-to-toe with Gargamel and leading the Smurfs safely through New York City!

 There’s something special about SMURFETTE.  Whether it’s her beauty, sweet voice, charming personality, or just the fact that she is the ONLY girl among 100 boys, she just makes the other Smurfs go absolutely gaga. Originally created by Gargamel to trap the other Smurfs, Papa’s magic saved her and transformed her into a real Smurf.  With a smart, savvy attitude, she’ll prove what a pint-sized punch she has when she comes face to face with her creator.

If it wasn’t for bad luck, CLUMSY wouldn’t have any luck at all – wherever he goes, calamity is sure to follow. With two left feet and an oversized hat and ears, Clumsy’s good intentions pave the road for trouble – and this time the road he chooses leads the Smurfs into a strange new place, New York City.  But everyone has a hero inside of him, and when his other Smurfs need him, Clumsy will prove that you can be more than a name.

If every village has its idiot, every village also has a BRAINY.  Overeager and a bit over-educated, he’s a “know-it-all” who really doesn’t know it all.  Brainy is Papa’s self-appointed right-hand Smurf, and even if he’s annoying at times with his encyclopedia-like knowledge, he might just be the Smurf you want to cast a spell when Papa’s not around.

Easily distinguished by his kilt, roguish sideburns, rugged good looks and Scottish accent, GUTSY has the bravado to take any risk.  A guy who Smurfs first and asks questions later, he’s quick to jump headlong into adventure for his fellow Smurfs.

Before you think that every Smurf is all about happiness, sunshine, and rainbows, you need to meet GROUCHY.  He smurfs up on the wrong side of the bed……every day.  He hates sunshine, rainbows make him sick, and happiness makes him unhappy. However, somewhere underneath all the scowling and grouching is a heart of gold….although, he probably hates gold too.

If ugly had a name, it would be Gargamel.  And if obsession had a face, it would look like Gargamel.  This evil wizard is consumed by all things Smurfs: they’re all he thinks about, all he talks about, and all he’s ever wanted. A zero when it comes to magic and a negative 100 in the hygiene department, Gargamel is nevertheless always scheming up convoluted ways to capture the fabled Smurfs and drain them of their “essence” – the key ingredient in creating the most powerful spells!  Gargamel will do anything to capture a Smurf, including chase them into New York City, all in order to become the most powerful wizard in the world!
