Smurfs Calendar

New Smurf products are coming out, and I won’t be surprised if we really see them escalate in the next 8 months. Here’s a product that you need to jump on right now so that you can use it as soon as possible–Smurf Calendars!

The Smurfs 2011 Wall Calendar is selling for $14.99 and features the classic Smurf characters (as opposed to the ones in the new Smurf movie). It’s 12 months plus the 4 mini months. Each month features a different scene from the Smurfs cartoon. Perfect for adults or kids who love the Smurfs! Watch their website often as well because they will run free shipping deals (currently it is free shipping on purchases of $25 or more). Check out the Smurf Calendars and all of the hundreds of others that they have.

Get the Smurf Snuggie

Smurf Snuggie Wrappie

Smurf Snuggie (Smurf Wrappie)

If you are looking for a Smurf Snuggie, you actually need to be looking for the “Licensed Smurf Wrappie” because that is its official name. It looks exactly like a Snuggie (the wearable blanket that has become famous through As Seen on TV promotions). However, because of licensing restrictions, it cannot be called a “Snuggie.” We knew what you were looking for and found it anyway. They used to be available in a lot of places, but now you can pretty much only get them through eBay.

Smurf Christmas Special

The Smurfs Christmas Special initially aired on television in 1982. You can still catch it sometimes on the Cartoon Network. Interestingly, it is unavailable for purchase on Amazon now because of “licensing agreements.” So you will have to scope it out on television and record it if you want a copy. If you are too impatient for that, here are the Youtube videos of Part 1 and Part 2:

“Goodness makes the badness go away,
Goodness makes you happy every day,
Badness cannot start if there’s goodness in your heart,
Goodness makes the badness go away.”

Shopping for Smurf Pajamas

Smurf Pajamas for Adults

Smurf Pajamas for Adults

Smurf pajamas are hot these days with the second Smurf movie coming out this summer (not to mention Smurf cartoon reruns almost all day long!). You can find Smurf pajamas for both adults and kids, but I am more concerned about the adult pajamas! One of my favorite places to buy them is Crazy for Bargains, but they currently do not have any in stock. Their selection changes frequently, but often they will have a couple of different pair of Pajama Pants, one with lots of Smurfs and the other with Papa Smurf.

Amazon also has a varied selection of Smurf pajamas, both for men and women. They are usually sold through Amazon resellers, so products change from day to day. You’re most likely to find Ladies Sleep Shirts and Lounge Pants there right now.

If you can’t find Smurf pajamas that you like, you might want to pick up a Smurf Snuggie. They run about $20 and would be good for adults or kids either one (although they come in adult sizes).

A final good place to check is eBay. Ordinarily I wouldn’t buy clothes there, but it is a good place to try for items that are in hot demand and hard to find (like Smurf pajamas!). They have the biggest variety of any place that I have found and often they are brand new with tags on them. Check out all of the pajamas at eBay including those below.

Why is Smurfette the Only Girl?

Everyone always asks why Smurfette is the only female Smurf. The answer is that all of the Smurfs were initially males. However, when Gargamel was trying to figure out how to get to the Smurfs, he decided that he would get to them through their hearts by creating a female Smurf. Gargamel fashioned Smurfette out of sugar and spice (but nothing nice), crocodile tears, half a pack of lies, the chatter of a magpie, and a heart of stone.

Smurfette was found in the woods crying and was readily taken in by the village. Interestingly, she was not the beautiful blonde Smurfette that we all think of; she started with stringy black hair. Eventually Smurfette started turning the Smurfs against each other until they saved her life. Smurfette repents and Papa Smurf casts a spell on her to make her “new and improved” (which is blonde and full Smurf).

In the videos below, you can see the actual Smurf episode where Smurfette was created. Smurfette has some really great (and probably inappropriate in retrospect) lines in this first episode. My favorite part is when Smurfette says “Do you like what you see? You will!”

(In future posts, we will actually tell you about two other female Smurfs that you may not know about!)

New Smurf Comics

I know they are generally called “graphic novels” these days, but I still prefer “comics.” And I am happy to announce that Smurf comics are due to be released in August.

Smurfs #1 Smurfnapper is a “sampler comicbook from Papercutz with a full story in anticipation of the new series of graphic novels” that will be launching soon.

The two comics slated to come out in August are Smurfs GN Vol. 01: The Purple Smurf and Smurfs GN Vol. 02: The Magic Flute.

Smurfs GN Vol. 01: The Purple Smurf (Available August 25, 2010)

“This debut volume introduces us to the Smurf village, and features two Smurf-tastic stories. In ‘The Purple Smurf,’ when a strange fly bites one of the Smurfs, a full-on epidemic develops in the Smurf Village. After being bit, a Smurf turns purple, his vocabulary is reduced to one word (‘gnap!’), and he goes berserk! The purple Smurf runs amok, biting other Smurfs on the tail and turning them purple too! It’s up to Papa Smurf to find a cure. ‘The Flying Smurf’ features the inspiring tale of a Smurf with a dream – to fly!”

Smurfs GN Vol. 02: The Magic Flute (Available August 25, 2010)

“In Medieval times, a court jester named Peewit, who lives in a king’s castle, discovers a flute that makes those who listen to it dance until they collapse from exhaustion. When a thief steals the flute, Peewit must search out the makers of the flute, the Smurfs, to make an even more powerful flute to combat the thief in this wildly funny tale.”

You can pre-order both of the Smurf Graphic Novels from TFAW.com.

Smurf Shirts from NBC Universal Store

The Smurf cartoons originally aired on NBC in the 1980s, so it makes sense that NBC Universal Store would have some official Smurf shirts. Here are a few cute ones that they currently have in stock. Be sure to check back as the Smurf movie gets closer because they will likely have more.

How Old Are the Smurfs?

When my kids first asked me how old the Smurfs were, I told them that they were probably around 30 years old. I can remember watching them on television around 1980. However, it turns out that the Smurfs are actually much older than that!

According to the official Smurf website, they originated back in 1958 as secondary characters in a story of Johan & Peewit by Belgian cartoonist Peyo. After decades of showing up in different forms in different countries, the Smurfs that I remember showed up in the United States. The Hanna-Barbera produced cartoon started appearing in the US in 1981 and ran through 1989 on NBC.

As for the ages of the Smurfs, most are said to be at least 100.

Who Is In the New Smurf Movie?

The new Smurf movie is promising to have a great lineup of celebrities. Here are just some of them that are already signed on. The movie is still in production, so we could see some changes.

Neil Patrick Harris (Johan)
Sofía Vergara (Odile)
Katy Perry (Smurfette) (voice)
Hank Azaria (Gargamel)
Paul Reubens (Jokey Smurf) (voice)
Alan Cumming (Gutsy Smurf) (voice)
B.J. Novak (Baker Smurf) (voice)
George Lopez (Grouchy Smurf) (voice)
Fred Armisen (Brainy Smurf) (voice)
Kenan Thompson (Greedy Smurf) (voice)
Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf) (voice)
Jeff Foxworthy (Handy Smurf) (voice)
John Oliver (Vanity Smurf) (voice)
Wolfgang Puck (Chef Smurf) (voice)

Quite a list! I haven’t seen Jonathan Winters in anything new in years. This will definitely be one of those movies where I am listening for voices throughout.
