** 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.

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

**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. *Why does Azrael acts more like a dog than as a cat?

* 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.

*** Because his entire personality is around him '''thinking''' he's "Brainy" not necessarily because he actually is.

*** If so, then ''how'' Brainy got his name if his first word was "gobbledygook" (''Baby's First Word'', in contrast to, for example, Jokey's ''surprise'') and is, in essence, [[KnowNothingKnowItAll a pretentious intellectual who actually knows very little]]?

** It's more complicated than that. That was during the time, tv season sets weren't doing so hot, and there was some doubts if Hanna Barbera was good enough to sell. That got turned straight up on it's head as a lie when the Warner Archive took over, but they revealed one major problem was in it for the Smurfs, their masters are one hell of a mess. If you notice all those shorter volumes and random samplers ONLY use season 1 and part of season 2, but never enough to eliminate the need for a Smurfs Season Two set/s. They probably stalled them thinking they could milk money to afford fixing them with the smaller releases. It appears to be the game with Scooby Doo too, as they need money to pay off the celebrity clearances from the one Scooby Doo series as well. They'll probably get back on it, once they actually get/have the money to spend fixing the other EIGHT seasons worth of masters in the vault. It might very well be the most expensive HB project still up to WB to tackle.

** This is addressed in the animated version with "Nobody/Somebody" Smurf. Nobody goes to Papa Smurf to get a "cool" name, and Papa Smurf replies that Smurfs aren't just handed "cool names." The Smurf's personality and character traits are ''very'' carefully studied, and then the name is chosen to match. Since "Nobody" didn't manifest any special traits or abilities and was basically flat character, that was the name he got until his "Day in the limelight" episode where he beat the imp that was single-handedly curbstomping Smurf Village by turning every-smurf's name against them. That's when he went from "Nobody" Smurf to "Somebody" Smurf.
