Origin of the little blue beings

In 1958, a talented Belgian comic artist, Pierre Culliford, known as Peyo, dreamt up a tribe of white capped, blue skinned imps living in a village of mushrooms and speaking a strange language, Smurf. These characters first appeared in one of the Johan and Peewit adventures, The Magic Flute.

Success was such, that from 1962, Peyo worked exclusively on the creation, drawing and texting of a cartoon dedicated to these characters. He remained the only creator of the Smurfs cartoons until his death in 1992. Since then, his family and collaborators have continued his work, with the same creativity and sense of humour.

International fame

  • The 31 comic books have been translated into more than 30 languages, with over 35 million copies sold worldwide.
  • The Smurf adventures have been adapted for film and developed as a TV series, with over 272 episodes broadcast in more than 50 countries.

From film to video game


As the first adaptation for film in 2011 by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation, family comedy The Smurfs was an immediate success, rising to the top of the American box office on the day it was launched, achieving 13 million dollars in ticket sales. This film generated over 560 million dollars in ticket sales around the world, ranking third amongst the top animation films for 2011.

The Smurfs 2 is directed by Raja Gosnell and produced by Jordan Kerner. The sequel continues the story of our blue friends in an all new adventure to be released in theatres on July 31, 2013.
