The Smurf’s: A Magical Smurf Adventure came to DVD July 19, 2011. The Smurfs are a group of over 100 bluish, three-apple tall creatures who live in the mushroom homes of Smurf Village. They are led by 543-year-old Papa Smurf (who doesn’t look a day over 530). Their lives would be perfect were it not for their villainous Gargamel, a wizard who spends his days trying to capture them to eat, turn into gold, or for other evil reasons. Gargamel’s cat Azrael adds to the menace, always looking for a tasty, Smurfy snack. The Smurf’s: Magical Adventure DVD includes 10 episodes on two discs. Here is a list of the 10 “Smurftastic” episodes:
- Smurf Van Winkle -Lazy is tricked into believing he’s slept his life away.
- Revenge of the Smurfs -The Smurfs try to get even with an army that’s stormed their village.
- Magic Fountain -The Smurfs search for a magic fountain.
- Smurf Me No Flowers -Lazy is led to believe he has only a few days to live.
- The Cursed Country -An evil master captures Smurfs to work in his diamond mine.
- The Blue Plague – Brainy gives the Smurfs a meal that makes them feel like chickens.
- The Ring of Castellac -The Smurfs return a drugged duke to his rightful place.
- A Mere Truffle -Tracker loses his memory while leading the Smurfs on a truffle hunt.
- Gormandizing Greedy -Greedy gains weight after a diet of sweets and desserts.
- Sister Smurf -Smurfette and a young girl are held captive by an old hag.
As a HUGE Smurf’s fan I was thrilled for my kids to see what I watched every Saturday morning growing up. (does that age me?) My girls absolutely love Smurfette and my son thought the evil Gargamel was hilarious. He always seems to like the villain, maybe because it reflects his personality! My girl’s favorite episode is “Sister Smurf”, probably because it stars Smurfette. My boys really liked “The Blue Plague”, they thought the Smurf’s acting like chickens was very funny. It was crazy that I actually remembered some of the episodes from 20+ years ago! That must be because the Smurf’s are timeless characters that will be enjoyed by children (and adults) for years to come.
