|Name Translation of Harmony Smurf|
Harmony Smurf (original French name Schtroumpf Musicien) is one of the main characters of the Smurfs comic books and the Smurfs cartoon show, who has appeared on the show up until the Season 9 premiere episode "The Smurfs That Time Forgot".
He is a musician who is usually off-key and annoys his fellow Smurfs by his attempts to play a musical instrument, usually his horn. Sometimes, his music proves to actually be quite good, like in the new Smurf movie, where he is one of the instrument players (playing his trademark horn) in the opening sequence.
Role in the Village
Harmony's role is supposed to be the musician of the Smurfs who is supposed to play beautiful music. Instead, he just blows his off-key trumpet at random times. He occasionly plays a musician role, when the Smurfs are celebrating. In fact, the Smurfs turn to him when they need music. Examples are when he is shown performing while the other Smurfs do entertaining talents, such as in the opening sequence of the new Smurf movie, where he plays his horn for the dancing Smurfs. In times of danger, Harmony's role would be that of a village siren, where he would play his horn to warn the other Smurfs. This role would be taken over by Crazy Smurf in the 2011 Smurfs movie.
Harmony is the worst musician there is. His main instrument is his trumpet, which is completely off-key. In fact, he's something of a multi-instrumentalist; in "Smurphony In 'C'" he was given the opportunity to try other instruments when the other Smurfs were trying to figure out if a different instrument would make any difference. They let him play the lute, the trombone, the harp, and the harmonium, all of which ended up sounding really off-key. It all cumulated when Brainy Smurf handed him a triangle, and after striking the instrument, the tone was so off key that it fractured the glass in Brainy's glasses. A final attempt had him conducting the orchestra, resulting in everybody playing off-key.
Everytime Brainy or Papa Smurf are announcing something, he plays his trumpet so that the others would know, so he's not entirely bad at this job. Also, it seems like Harmony is in charge of the wake-up-calls for the Smurfs.
While he may be the musician, there is a chance Harmony is either tone deaf or finds his own music to be master pieces. In one episode, he wished for his trumpet to play better, only to throw it away because it didn't make a 'good sound', despite it sounding very pleasant. Despite his awful skills when it comes to playing instruments, it seems that Harmony is actually a great singer as seen in "A Mere Truffle" where he sang a song about his love for truffles.
Harmony gets on all the Smurfs nerves whenever he plays, but he isn't disliked (Smurfs prefer him over Brainy).
They don't seem to be a fan of him, though, often being happy if Harmony doesn't play his off-tuned trumpet anymore. They do care for him, though, saving him whenever he gets himself into trouble.
Yet there are moments where he's asking for trouble. In "Romeo And Smurfette", Harmony keeps on interrupting Handy and Hefty's love songs for Smurfette by blowing his horn everytime they're close to finishing. He did this until they threw him out of the village, in the same manner they throw out Brainy.
In the game Smurfs Bubble Story, after the player unlocks Harmony, Jazzy Smurf welcomes him into Jazzy's band.
