There are over 100 distinct character. The figurines were highly collectible in the early 80s. Some were better known than others. Papa Smurf is the leader and the only one who wears red. That is how you can tell him apart from the others. Smurfette is one of only 3 females in their Village. She was originally created by Gargamel to destroy the Smurfs but Papa Smurf magically changed her nature from evil to sweet and lovely. Some other popular characters include Jokey, Lazy, Vanity and Chef. There are far too many to list here.
The Smurfs movie follows the adventures of tiny mythical blue creatures that live in mushroom houses in a hidden forest village. They must deal with the evil wizard Gargamel who is obsessed with capturing the little blue creatures. Aside from dealing with the evil Gargamel, they live a pretty happy existence.
For many, Smurfs bring back fond memories of our childhood. Many of us collected them and knew the personalities of each and every one of them. The cartoon was a favorite among young children although it is no longer shown on television. Everyone recognizes their blue hue and elf hats so its dressing as one for Halloween would make you a hit.
