Happy Smurfday!


On this day in 1958 The Smurfs - a fictional race of blue dwarves later popularized in Hanna-Barbera's animated series The Smurfs - appeared for the first time, in the story Le flute à six schtroumpfs, a Johan and Peewit adventure by the Belgian cartoonist Peyo which was serialized in the weekly comics magazine Le Journal de Spirou.

The well-being of Smurfs has always been at the forefront of the Pop Culture Institute's charitable work; currently, we operate a Home For Wayward Smurfettes under the wardenship of Papa Smurf. Living in a village made of mushrooms with one female means more than those adorable faces of theirs are blue, and as a result those poor Smurfettes get worn out pretty quickly...
