Cupid as he appears in the past in Holland
|Voice Actor||Joe Besser|
|First Appearance||Season 2, "My Smurfy Valentine" special|
Not to be confused with Cupid Smurf.
Cupid is a figure from Greek and Roman mythology who is also a character that appears in various episodes of the Smurfs cartoon show. He is the Ambassador of Love, in charge of making people and creatures fall in love. He is a cherub who is usually dressed in a waist cloth and carries a bow and a quiver full of love arrows. Although he tries to aim carefully, his arrows usually if not always tend to go the wrong way, causing some rather humorous situations.
He was originally voiced by the late Joe Besser of the Three Stooges, although by the final two seasons an unknown voice actor took over. In his last appearance, in which the time-traveling Smurfs encounter a younger version of him, he sounded like the late singer Elvis Presley.
