Tailor (original French name Schtroumpf Tailleur) is one of the main characters of the Smurfs cartoon show, who has appeared on the show from Season 2 up until around Season 8.

Character

He is the village's chief clothes maker who makes and repairs all the clothes that the Smurfs wear. He is usually identified by the pins that he wears in his Smurf hat and by a tape measure that he drapes around his neck.

Role in the Village

Tailor has one of the important jobs in the village. He's the one who makes the clothes for all the Smurfs. He's also one of the busiest because he has to make new clothes for Smurfs like Baby Smurf and Smurfette. He is always seen working on something and rarely has time to do other favors. As a sort of running gag, Tailor tends to see ordinary white Smurf clothes as "very distinguished" and creates new lines of clothes that don't look anything different from what the Smurfs normally wear, though he and most of the Smurfs tend to treat them as though they are actually different. The Smurflings, when they first appeared, eventually took Tailor to task about his view of Smurf clothes and developed their own personal style. This change in style also affected some of the Smurfs such as Handy Smurf, who in later years of the comic book series would wear blue bib overalls, and Farmer Smurf, who would wear green overalls and a straw hat. In the comic books, Tailor tried Wild Smurf out with wearing ordinary white Smurf clothes, but after seeing how uncomfortable they made him feel after wearing them, Tailor made a loincloth for Wild Smurf that suited him just fine.

Relationships

Tailor has no known "Best Smurf Friend", but he is well-respected. He is willing to help out at times, like when he helped Hefty Smurf with his "Smurfette Disguise" in Smurfette for a Day, but since he's busy measuring others for new clothes, he will turn them down at times.

Tailor shows sympathy for Smurfette, like when he made her a new dress because she wanted one earlier and he couldn't stand seeing her so sad (She turns down the dress though, in favor of a new one she got from a disguised Gargamel).

Tailor was, at first, irritated with the Smurflings because they ended up choosing different clothes, instead of dressing like the adult Smurfs, but he warms up to them.

Very Smurfy Non-canon warning: This article or section contains non-canonical information that is not considered to be an official part of either the Smurfs Franco-Belgian comic book series or the Smurfs cartoon show series and should not be considered part of the overall storyline of either.

Tailor has a short in-universe appearance in the 2011 Smurfs movie during the end credits when he stitches up a copy of the green M&M plush toy that Grouchy Smurf has fallen in love with.

  • His character was voiced by Kip King.
  • Although he is sometimes seen measuring other Smurfs, they never seem to grow.
