The Smurfs (actual title of the show does not use "the" as part of it) was a Hanna-Barbera cartoon series which aired on NBC from 1981 until 1990. It was based on the Belgian comic series The Smurfs by Peyo which features the group of blue people called Smurfs. It originally aired for one hour of programming time in its first season, then it was expanded to 90 minutes for the following seasons until 1988, when it returned to its original one-hour show length. It spawned a 30-minute syndicated version of the show called Smurfs Adventures in 1986, when it first debuted on various independent stations, and is now being aired on the Boomerang cable network. Each season featured its own separate intro sequence, depicting various changes in the show for that season.

History

In 1976, Stuart R. Ross, an American media and entertainment entrepreneur who saw the Smurfs while travelling in Belgium, entered into an agreement with Editions Dupuis and Peyo, acquiring North American and other rights to the characters. Subsequently, Ross launched the Smurfs in the United States in association with a California company, Wallace Berrie and Co., whose figurines, dolls and other Smurf merchandise became a hugely popular success. NBC television executive Fred Silverman's daughter had a Smurf doll of her own, and Silverman thought that a series based on the Smurfs might make a good addition to his Saturday-morning lineup.

The Smurfs secured their place in North American pop culture in 1981, when the Saturday-morning cartoon The Smurfs, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in association with SEPP International S.A., aired on NBC from 1981 to 1990. The show became a major success for NBC, spawning spin-off television specials on an almost yearly basis. The Smurfs was nominated multiple times for Daytime Emmy awards, and won Outstanding Children's Entertainment Series in 1982–1983. The Smurfs television show enjoyed continued success until 1990, when, after a decade of success, NBC cancelled it due to decreasing ratings.

The series currently airs in reruns on Boomerang, and 26 selected episodes were aired in DiC Entertainment's syndicated programming blocks. The series is still being shown regularly on many channels throughout the world. The cartoon was formerly distributed by Television Program Enterprises (later Rysher Entertainment), Tribune Entertainment (for DiC) and Worldvision Enterprises. The cartoon is now distributed direct from Warner Bros. Television; Time Warner is the current owner of all Hanna-Barbera properties (now known as Cartoon Network Studios), having inheirited them in their 1996 merger with Turner Broadcasting.

Warner Bros. has released Season 1 of Smurfs cartoon series on two DVD volumes in the United States in 2008, with the original intention of later seasons following the same trend. However, only five episodes from Season 2 were released on three single-disk sets each in 2009 and in the following years. At present, most of the episodes from Season 1 and from Seasons 3 to 6 are available for download and streaming by Amazon Instant Video, Apple iTunes, and the Zune media service.

The animated versions of Papa Smurf and Brainy Smurf were featured in Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue along with Hefty Smurf, who had one speaking line in the beginning which was "Who Smurfed the bell?." Though Smurfette is on the cover of the poster and VHS with the other cartoons, she is the only cartoon character and Smurf to not have appeared at all in the special. Harmony Smurf made a small cameo as the Smurfs comic book was flipping through pages.

The Season 2 introduction's lyrics for the Smurf song are used in the 2011 Smurfs movie and also in the Smurfs Dance Party video game.

In October 2014, IMPS (International Merchandising, Promotion & Services) has made a deal with ODMedia and Expoza to digitalise and remaster the entire series in 16:9 HD for the upcoming official Smurfs YouTube channel.
