The Smurfs, also known as Smurfs, is an American-Belgian animated fantasy-comedy television series produced by Hanna-Barbera and SEPP International for NBC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1981 to 1989, airing 259 episodes that spanned nine seasons, and an additional seven specials within that time, making it Hanna-Barbera's longest consecutive running series, without any format changes (succeeding The Flintstones, which ran from 1960 to 1966 in prime-time). It is based on the works of Belgian comics artist Peyo, first appearing in 1958.

The Smurfs is about the lives of a race of the same name; tiny, blue humanoids, wearing Phrygian caps, who live in a village of mushroom-shaped houses. Their names are based on adjectives that emphasize their personalities, such as "Jokey" Smurf, who pulls pranks. Their leader and mentor is the wizened Papa Smurf, who, unlike the others, dresses in red, instead of white. One of the main gimmicks of the show is that their kind is almost entirely made up of males, with Smurfette being the exception (although a couple of others were added towards the end of the series run). Their primary antagonist is the human, Gargamel, who knows of the Smurfs' hidden existence and wants to melt them into gold.

The narrator refers to the show as The Smurfs, while the card refers to it as Smurfs (while international versions also referred to it as The Smurfs). When the show went into syndication in 1986, it was renamed Smurfs' Adventures.





The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin until season nine when he was replaced with Tom Worrall.
