* Is Papa Smurfs literally the father of those 100 something male smurfs, or is "Papa" just a title he chose?

** Actually, Gargamel stopped caring for the Philosopher's Stone after the first Smurf he captured was freed by the others. Since then, his motives changed to revenge for his humiliation. Just in recent times (the post-Peyo stories) he has went back to creating the Philosopher's Stone, but by then he forgot how many Smurfs he needed, so he wants them all anyways.


Added DiffLines:

** The original comics (where his literal translation would be "Great Smurf" but is still translated as "Papa Smurf) don't make it clear, but the AnimatedAdaptation has Papa Smurf getting the other Smurfs from the DeliveryStork and raising them, so even if there likely is no DNA relation, the animated Papa Smurf is the father by nurture of these 98 Smurfs.

** He did go to wizard school, even if he flunked out, he clearly has some talents with potions and such, and he's pretty knowledgeable about magic and magical objects/artefacts. All of this is probably enough to classify him as a wizard -- just not a very good or powerful one.

* Why do characters refer to Gargamel as a wizard? We never see him display any magic from his finger tips like most witches, wizards, and sorcerers in the Smurfverse. He's just a regular mortal human who relies on a book.

* Why does Azrael acts more like a dog than as a cat? When Gargamel is punished at the end of most episodes we always see Azrael at his side sharing the punishment to some degree. When Gargamel is persecuted by some treat (like a giant or an angry mob) Azrael runs at his side even when he can run in other direction, hide or just stay still and probably the mob or the treat will keep following Gargamel and not him. Everyone who is familiar with cat behavior will know that a cat would never do this kind of stuffs. It doesnít mean that cats canít be loyal and protective to their owners, but not in that way.

** I remember an episode when is explained that Mother Nature and Father Time create them magically, but I can be wrong, was to long ago.


Added DiffLines:

** So communists execute people for making jokes? What is this, Fox News?


Added DiffLines:

**The book is unreliable at best, most of his schemes against the Smurfs fails. Even more, maybe he already tried to do all does stuffs and fail and we donít know because the show is tell from the Smurfís perspective so we donít see what Gargamel does in non-Smurfs related situations.

* This bugged me as a kid. Why is gargamel wearing an old beat up robe and living in an old house if he has a book of magic spells? That's like having a brilliant inventor live in a rat infested apartment. Gargamel's book can turn him handsome, change him into other creatures, make people fall in love, etc. He could make a lot of money with that book of his.
