Here’s some long overdo Smurfs fanart. I wasn’t a diehard fan as a kid, but I did like it and watch it often when I was very small and remember it dearly. I’ve always really liked the art style of The Smurfs, and just always found their designs very fun and cool looking. Just super appealing, cute character design.
Brainy was always my favorite Smurf, even if most of the Smurfs seemed to hate him in the old show, lol. Sure, he was egotistical and snotty, but I found him funny, and I felt his snobby ego was clearly a cover up for the poor dude’s insecurities. He had to hold his intellect above the other Smurfs to gain respect, and to be fair, it wasn’t very hard. Most Smurfs weren’t too bright. There were definitely other Smurfs who deserved more hate than Brainy. Greedy and Vanity for sure.
I also remember having a little crush on Smurfette when I first watched it. I didn’t fully get crushes yet, as I was about 3, but I just liked looking at her, lol. And I’ve always liked her design. She’s just so cute and likable. I feel like her design is just one of those really fun, appealing designs that almost everybody has to love.
But, anyway, I just watched Smurfs: The Lost Village yesterday. While there were some nitpicks here and there and I didn’t think it was amazing, it was surprisingly really cute and well made. I enjoyed it enough. I’d say it’s worth a watch, even if just for the beautiful visuals and animation.
So after watching the Smurfs: A Christmas Carol and Legend of Smurfy Hollow specials (which I actually enjoyed), I went and rewatch the 80′s Smurfs cartoon because 1) I sure as heck don’t remember a lot of them when I was a kid and 2) have not been having good days lately. So gonna watch some lighthearted cartoons.
And… I’m rediscovering my love for the series. I’m surprised that I can still enjoy watching it today. Granted, not all the episodes are great.
Still haven’t watch the live action ones and not planning to.
Still haven’t watch The Lost Village but will watch that one.
Update: Finally watched The Lost Village and I absolutely love it!
(On a more serious note, a lot of people say Celica is stupid, but honestly if there was a real possibility that everyone I know and love might die because of a god and a goddess going insane, and giving up my life to an evil Papa Smurf MIGHT be able to save them, I’d probably do it too.)
