The Smurf characters were created on October 23, 1958 in a Belgian comic strip by a French cartoonist, Pierre "Peyo" Culliford. It started its original TV series on NBC in 1981. The Smurfs are child-sized little blue characters. They live in the safe King Gerard's forest where there were no hunters or poachers allowed as per the order of the king. They live happily in their little village with their mushroom houses. Their worst enemy is the sorcerer Gargamel who had a pet cat named Azrael. Azrael adds to the sufferings of the Smurfs as he is always looking for a very delicious and tasty blue snack. The Smurfs show was very popular. The new movie that came out last July 2011 made it even more popular to the younger generation.
Papa Smurf is the leader of the Smurf community. When things go bad in the whole community, the Smurfs turn to him for advice. Aside from Grandpa and Nanny, he is the oldest in the community. He is killed in the making of potions and some magical spells. He is characterized wearing red clothes, red hat and with his popular bushy white beard.
Smurfette used to be under the influence of Gargamel. Gargamel created her in order to invade the Smurfs. However, she was later transformed by Papa Smurf from the evil Smurfette to a very lovable one. She is the only female character in the Smurfs until this time.
Aside from Papa Smurf and Smurfette, there are also many more Smurfs who live in the Smurf community. They also have their own adventures and misadventures in the Smurf world which makes their everyday lives more exciting. Clumsy for example, always trips over things which results to accidents. Jokey loves playing jokes with everybody. His way of joking is by giving away presents to everyone, presents that explode.
Brainy Smurf is someone who thinks he knows about almost everything in this world. He is the "Mr. Know It All" of the whole community. He wears glasses and this attitude of his annoys everyone.

Gargamel is the evil sorcerer who is the nemesis of the Smurfs. He loves making potions and its not depicted that he has any real magical powers. His main goal in life is to capture as many Smurfs as he can so he can create more potions in order to turn base matter into gold. It is his goal to destroy the Smurfs totally and one way to realize this plan was to create the evil Smurfette who was later on turned by Papa Smurf into a good one.
