Smurf-thing old, Smurf-thing new

So, in preparation for the all new 3D Smurf movie, it is surely the right time to re-aquaint yourself with the 2D Smurfs of old! The wizened Papa Smurf, to remembering how Smurf-ette came into being! The whole story!

If the forthcoming 3D movie release is anything, it's the best excuse in the world to douse and bathe yourself in all things 1980's Smurf.

If you look, you'll still find snippets of the Smurfs on youtube as well as a healthy market for old collectable models and Smurf figures and games.

Indeed, this might be the perfect time to get your little ones into the “traditional” Smurf world, that way you can get your hit of nostalgia as the new generation gets hooked on what hooked you all those years ago!

There is in fact the whole original Smurf world out there for you to own, both series, in their full glory as well as an original feature length movie "The Smurfs and the Magic Flute". Of couse if you’re not a fanatic, and you didn't fancy every episode (or the cost that goes with a boxed set) there is even something special coming to all 2D smurf fans in the next few weeks...

In sync with the movie release there is a re-release of four favourite episodes from the Original classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon series: The Smurfette, The Good the Bad and the Smurfy, Papa's Wedding, All's Smurfy That Ends Smurfy!

So look into them! And then close you eyes and hear the familiar song and get transported that little mushroom village with those little blue pixies in short trousers and white bonnets that are only as tall as three apples! (English Cox's I believe)
