Origin of the little blue beings
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.
- 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.
