Dame Barbara (Fr. Dame Barde) is the bossy, overbearing governess of the castle which Johan, Peewit and Princess Savina live with The King. Dame Barbara only wants what's best for Princess Savina. She was voiced by the late Linda Gary.

She appears in the original comic book story and animated version of The Smurfs And The Magic Flute under the respective names of Lady Gripe, Lady Beard and Lady Prattle, as one of Peewit's magic flute dancing victims.

She is the only one in the kingdom who is unaware that the Smurfs are real and she also unaware that Johan, Peewit, Princess Savina, and The King are friends with the Smurfs.

At first she was totally afraid of Peewit when he had The Magic Flute in his possession that caused her to dance uncontrollability but after the Magic Flute incident she doesn't like Peewit at all and tries to hector him any chance she gets.
