The Smurfs

The Smurfs was a classic Saturday-morning cartoon series that ran from 1981-1990. It featured tiny, magical, blue creatures called Smurfs. The Smurfs, named for their personalities, inhabited a village of mushroom houses in an enchanted forest. These loveable creatures were led by Papa Smurf and mostly lived carefree lives. There was one major threat to their existance: Gargamel, an evil but inept wizard who lived in a stone-built house in the forest; and his feline companion, the equally nasty Azrael. Typical stories dealt with the Smurfs' efforts to fight off Gargamel, who wanted to eat them, make them slaves or gain their magical secrets in order to gain dignity among the wizard's fraternity.

My favorites Smurfs were: Lazy Smurf, Handy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, Tailor Smurf, Dreamy Smurf, Smurfette, Jokey Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Baker Smurf, and Greedy Smurf.
