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!)
