|First Appearance||Season 1|
Feathers is a non-human character that appears in the Smurfs comic books, various episodes of the Smurfs cartoon show, and also the movies. It is a crane that faithfully offers rides for the Smurfs to places that would take too long to get to on foot. They also at times protects the Smurfs from various dangers, such as the predatory Howlibird. It is seen more in the earlier episodes of the cartoon television show.
There seems to be another crane that has appeared a couple of times in various episodes, but the name is not given. It is possible that this other bird is Feathers' mate. Feathers' gender is also never stated in the cartoon show, much like Baby Smurf.
