The Smurfs became a hit comic series in the 60s after their creation in 1958 by a Comic Artist from Belgium nicknamed “Peyo”. The cartoon immediately took off as the classic tale of a village of blue skinned gnomes that worked together toward improving their small and fragile society. The Smurfs’ morals showed examples of teamwork and hard work that reflected in their unity and protection of their village.
