* King Smurf's campaign speech in the original English translation of his self-titled story is full of this to various American politicians:
-->"Fellow Smurfs! [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon I'd like to begin by making one thing perfectly smurf]]. [[UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt We have only one thing to smurf and that smurf is smurf itself]], but our Smurfs will never smurf on foreign smurf, [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy so ask not what your country can smurf for you but rather what you can smurf for your smurf]]. [[UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson For all Smurfs were created equal and are entitled to smurf, liberty, and the pursuit of smurfness]] [[UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln so the government of the Smurfs, by the Smurfs, for the Smurfs shall not smurf]]. A vote for me is a vote for Smurf!"
** And his rallying speech is a {{shout out}} to UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill:
--->"Fellow Smurfs! Never in the field of smurfing conflict will so much be smurfed by so many to so few! We shall smurf on to the end, we shall smurf on the seas and oceans, we shall smurf in the air, we shall defend our smurf, whatever the smurf may be, we shall smurf on the beaches, we shall smurf on the smurfing grounds, we shall smurf in the hills! Or else!"
* In the Papercutz English translation of "The Astro Smurf", Astro Smurf says "[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory to infinity and smurf]]!" as he begins to take off in his smurfship.
* In "The Jewel Smurfer", Hefty, Grouchy and Greedy enact a play where the three respectively dress as Ganelon, the Thief of Abelagot, and Duke of Abelagot with Jokey playing himself and Brainy narrating about a thief and a traitor to expose them is the Smurf version of ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Murder of Gonzago]]'' play, similar to the circumstances of the previous King's death that Theatre/{{Hamlet}} asks a traveling troupe of actors to perform in order to prove his uncle is guilty of murder.
** At the beginning, Hefty and Smurfette are rehearsing their roles as [[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet Romeo and Juliet]], though it's more like Hefty's horribly singing to Smurfette [[SignatureScene on the balcony]], who's begging him to stop.
** One of the antagonists is Ganelon, the treacherous false friend of the local lord (he kidnapped the lord son), who shares the name of [[Literature/TheSongOfRoland one of the most famous traitors in medieval literature]].
* Poet is tied down by [[Literature/GulliversTravels little people]] on the cover of "The Smurfs And The Pilus".[[labelnote:alternate]]Titular Pilus that tie down Poet are based on the [[Literature/GulliversTravels Lilliputians]][[/labelnote]]

** In order to look for the Smurflings in the dark at the end, Gargamel and the witch summons a character named Jack O'Lantern. "Jack O'Lantern" derives from an old folklore told in different variations across Western Europe from the mid-19th century similar to the story of WillOTheWisp where lazy yet shrew Farmy Stingy Jack who used a cross to trap {{Satan}}.
* "Où Se Schtroumpfe..." is based on [[Literature/WheresWaldo Where's Waldo/Wally?]] where the subject is finding a particular Smurf character hidden within a densely-packed scene of Smurfs.
* "Doctor Smurf" is heavily inspired by Jules Romains' well-known play ''Dr. Knock''.
* Among the costumes the Smurfs are seen wearing at the ball of the full moon in "The Reporter Smurf" are [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Supersmurf]], ComicBook/LuckyLuke, UsefulNotes/ChristopherColumbus, Franchise/SherlockHolmes, Myth/RobinHood and possibly UsefulNotes/DavyCrockett (hence the hat).
* The Dragon Lake in "Smurf Heroes" references both Siegfried and Achilles' myths, both about invincibility-granting liquids. In Siegfried's case, the magic water is described as blood-like and comes from a dragon-like rock, thus being a family-friendly adaptation of the bath in dragon blood. In Achilles' case, when Scaredy Smurf bathes in the water, he leaves his tail out of the water, just like Achilles left his heel out, and Clumsy Smurf draws the comparison with Achilles' Heel right then.
* In the English translation of "The Smurfs and the Booglooboo", Gargamel tells the bird, "[[Music/RingoStarr Back off, Booglooboo]]," when it ends up chasing after him.

!!For the Hanna-Barbera cartoon:
[[folder: Pun Based Episode Titles]]
* "Bewitched, Bothered And Be-Smurfed" = could be based on show tune and popular song "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered," from Rodgers and Hart's 1940 musical ''Theatre/PalJoey''.
** At one point, Jokey quips famous quote "[[UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt the only thing to fear is fear itself]]" from the thirty-second [[UsefulNotes/ThePresidents President of the United States]]'s first inauguration speech.
** Hogatha drops Gargamel onto the ground after he yelled and kicked her out of his hovel:
---> '''Hogatha:''' So, are you gonna help Hogatha help find her grandmother's locket?
---> '''Gargamel:''' Yes, yes, yes.
---> '''Hogatha:''' Well, [[Film/{{Casablanca}} this could be a start of a beautiful friendship]].
---> '''Gargamel:''' No, no, no!
** When Greedy's back in bed, now a fiddle courteously of Hogatha's amulet Smurfette found granting her wish for Greedy "[[LiteralGenie to be fit as a fiddle]]," he's playing a (scratchy) chord of "Go To Sleep Little Baby".
** Turning herself into a frog with little magic she has left, Hogatha runs into Smurfette and explains that she was once a beautiful princess until a wicked witch turned her into a frog and only needs [[Literature/TheFrogPrince a kiss from a Smurf]] to cure her.
** After Smurfette wishes Grouchy to cheer up, he says "[[Franchise/TheMuppets Wocka Wocka]]" three or four times until the spell breaks and he ends it with "Good. I hate 'wocka wocka.'"
* "Smurfs At Sea":
** Dreamy quotes a variant of Neil Armstrong's "that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind by saying "one small step for Smurf, one giant leap for smurfkind!"
** At one point, [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} a whale swallows the ship whole]], during a storm no less!
** When the Smurfs first try to escape inside the whale, Greedy's standing at the bow as the other Smurfs row is reminiscent of the UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington crossing [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/95/Washington_Crossing_the_Delaware_by_Emanuel_Leutze%2C_MMA-NYC%2C_1851.jpg/800px-Washington_Crossing_the_Delaware_by_Emanuel_Leutze%2C_MMA-NYC%2C_1851.jpg Delaware River]] painting.

* "The Sky Is Smurfing! The Sky Is Smurfing!":
** Throughout the episode, Scaredy keeps saying "[[TitleDrop the sky is smurfing]]!" like how Henny Penny, also known as Chicken Licken or Chicken Little, says the prominently featured phrase through the folk tale.
** Papa calls the erupting volcano "Mount Saint Smurf," likely referring to [[http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/mountsthelens/home/?cid=stelprdb5199437 Mount Saint Helens]] that erupted in 1980.
* "The Stuff Dreams Are Smurfed Of" = a quote talking about dreams, the most famous modern use of the phrase responsible for much of its popularity was at the end of ''Film/TheMalteseFalcon'' where the lead {{hardboiled detective}} paraphrased a much older expression dating back to Creator/WilliamShakespeare in regards to the titular falcon statue [[spoiler:which turns out not to be of great value]]:
--> '''[[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000955/?ref_=tt_trv_qu Detective Tom Polhaus]]:''' (''picks up titular falcon'') Heavy. What is it?
--> '''[[Creator/HumphreyBogart Sam Spade]]:''' The, uh, stuff dreams are made of.
--> '''Detective Tom Polhaus:''' Huh?
** The [[Creator/DashiellHammett author]] of the [[Literature/TheMalteseFalcon book]] the aforementioned movie's [[TheFilmOfTheBook based on]] may have been inspired by lines in act four of ''Theatre/TheTempest'' said by Prospero:
---> "And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,\\
Leave not a wrack behind,\\
We are ''such stuff as dreams are made of''\\
And our little life is rounded with a sleep".
* "Speak For Yourself, Farmer Smurf": The episode takes elements from 1897 French play by Edmond Rostand with each Smurf presented in the episode playing a specific part of a character:
** Farmer as Theatre/CyranoDeBergerac where both fall for a woman they love but are afraid to express it because of their insecurities. For Cyrano, it's his [[GagNose ridiculously oversized nose]] and Farmer doesn't think anybody can love a 'country bumpkin'. Farmer also has shades of Baron Christian de Neuvillette, a young cadet who also falls for the same woman Cyrano is crushing on. Like Christian, Farmer uses Poet for his poetry aspect and the fact he uses Vanity's "beauty" to be attractive.
** Smurfette as Madeleine "Roxanne" Robin, the cousin of Cyrano and the one he and Christian, as well as [[YourCheatingHeart Comte de Guiche]], falls in love with.
** Papa as Let Bred, an old friend of Cyrano hence both talk about love to Farmer/Cyrano.
** Poet as Cyrano, hence he wrote a poem for Farmer much like how Cyrano wrote a poem for Christian and both are poets in their own right.
** Grouchy delivers the letter Poet wrote for Farmer to Smurfette like how Christian gives the poem of Cyrano to Roxanne, however, Smurfette believes it to be from a secret admirer whilst Roxanne believes Christian wrote the poems and Cyrano is simply delivering them.
** Vanity has a small part of Christian for helping Farmer with being more charming and sophisticated.
** Handy shares a small part of Christian as well hence he constructed a "beauty" mask in order to disguise Farmer.
** Only major difference is unlike the play where there's a LoveTriangle and the fact almost all the male Smurfs usually swoon over Smurfette, Farmer is basically alone trying to get her affection.[[labelnote:notification]]Special thanks to [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2554570/Fan-de-Basil-de-Baker-Street Fan de Basil de Baker Street]] for his help.[[/labelnote]]

** Upon investigating a noise backstage of the theatre, Brainy gets into a quick [[Film/DuckSoup false mirror trick]] with Timid.
** Like [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Lieutenant Commander Data]], Disney/PeterPan, [[Film/WhateverHappenedToBabyJane Jane Hudson]] and even [[Series/{{Batman}} Alfred Pennyworth]] at one point, Timid perfectly imitates the voices of Poet, Tailor, Painter, Handy and Brainy.
* "Calling Dr. Smurf" = the announcements of "Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard" from Film/TheThreeStooges' short ''Men In Black''.
** Possibly based on Music/{{KISS}}' 1976 song "Calling Dr. Love".
* "Can't Smurf The Music" = "Can't stop the Music", a 1980 song by [[Music/VillagePeople The Village People]] and the name of [[Music/VillagePeople The Village People]]'s [[Film/CantStopTheMusic musical comedy feature film]] coming out the same year that's a pseudo-biography which only bears a vague resemblance to the actual story of the group's formation.
* "Sing A Song Of Smurflings" = based on well-known English nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence" probably originating in the 18th century.
** The Smurflings have taken "Beasty" the Savage Beast home with their music, said savage beast won't let them leave, wanting the four to play for him forever:

''♫ ♪'' ''Tis the season to be jolly'' ''♪ ♫'',\\
♫ ♪ Fa la la la la, la la la la... ♪ ♫"
* "Stealing Grandpa's Thunder" = "stealing one's thunder" is when someone uses your ideas or inventions to his or her own advantage.
* "Greedy's Master Pizza" = Painter's own pronunciation of the word "masterpiece," which he pronounces as "masteurpiesa".

(Jokey even says "{{open sesame}}" as well as "Open Smurfsame") to the Baby Bandits' hideout when making his escape. Only difference being Jokey succeeds and as for [[DeadGuyOnDisplay Kasim]]...

* Introduced in "Smurf On The Wild Side", Wild Smurf is based on ''Literature/{{Tarzan}}'' even being raised by squirrels.
* Hogatha's ancestor from "Hogapatra's Beauty Sleep" is named '[[UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII Hogapatra]]'.
* Farmer's genie Gourdy from "Farmer's Genie", "Master Scruple" and "The Tallest Smurf" causing problems for his "mastuh" is like Fakrash the genie causing problems for his master Harold Ventimore and Harold's fiancée Sylvia Kenton in ''The Brass Bottle''.
** At the end of 'Farmer's Genie,' Papa chuckles followed with "[[Film/{{Casablanca}} This looks the beginning of a beautiful friendship]]" just as the episode ends.

* Throughout the show's run, frequent bits and pieces of {{classical music}} composed by Music/JohannSebastianBach, Music/LudwigVanBeethoven, Music/WolfgangAmadeusMozart, Isaac Albéniz, Music/HectorBerlioz, Léon Boëllmann, Alexander Borodin, Anton Bruckner, Music/ClaudeDebussy, Music/EdwardElgar, César Franck, Edvard Grieg, Music/FranzLiszt, Music/FelixMendelssohn, Modest Mussorgsky, Music/SergeiRachmaninoff, Music/MauriceRavel, Music/GioachinoRossini, Music/FranzSchubert, Music/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky, Music/RichardWagner, Paul Dukas, Music/EdwardElgar, Albert W. Ketelbey, Lev Knipper, Zoltán Kodály, Sergey Prokofiev, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Camille Saint-Saëns, Jean Sibelius, Richard Strauss and Music/IgorStravinsky are used as background music or themes for particular events.
* Now why does the plot for "Fuzzle Trouble" with [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries seemingly harmless creatures that multiply when they eat]] sound familiar?[[note]]for those who are curious what episode is being referred to, it's episode "The Trouble with Tribbles''".[[/note]]
* In Painter's art exhibit from "Painter And Poet", he displays four Smurf versions of famous Western paintings: ''Arrangement in Grey and Black: Portrait of the Artist's Mother'' by James Abbot [=McNeil=] Whistler, ''The Blue Boy'' by Thomas Gainsborough, ''Portrait of [[UsefulNotes/HenryVIII King Henry VIII]]'' by an unknown follower of German Hans Holbein the Younger, and ''Mona Lisa'' by Creator/LeonardoDaVinci.

* After the Smurfs and Flowerbell (who's responsible for getting Papa Smurf captured for Balthazar in exchange for her freedom) save Papa and freeing the caged wild animals from Balthazar in "Papa's Wedding Day", Flowerbell says "... if you can find it in your heart to forgive me, maybe you can [[Creator/MaeWest come up and see me sometime]]" before flying off to parts unknown.
* When first introduced to [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Fenwick]]'s uncle in "Smurfing For Ghosts", he's singing "[[Theatre/TheMarriageOfFigaro Figaro, Figaro]]!"
** Brainy and Clumsy go hunting for ghosts [[Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} armed with primitive ghost-catching devices]] at Quarrel Castle.
*** A piece of the theme song is heard as well the line "who ya gonna smurf (call)?"
** Upon discovering Fenwick's {{big eater}} relative in a cupboard:

* Under the influence of the magic orb in "The Lure Of The Orb", Harmony gets his band to play faster, similar to a scene from ''Film/ReeferMadness''.
* In "Handy's Sweetheart", at one point, Brainy says "east is east, west is west, and never the twain shall smurf". The phrase "never the twain shall meet" was used by Creator/RudyardKipling in his 1892 "Barrack-room ballads" meaning two things which are so different as to have no opportunity to unit:
--> "Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet".
* Smurfette gains the power of [[BlessedWithSuck whatever object she touches turns into smurfberry candy and then accidentally turns Brainy into candy]] in "Smurfette's Sweet Tooth''".

* Greedy is tied down by [[Literature/GulliversTravels little people]] in "Big Shot Smurfs''".

* At the end of "Jokey's Shadow", Tailor [[Literature/PeterPan sews Jokey's shadow after it came to life]] back to the owner.
* After breaking his friendship with Clumsy in "The Smurfiest Of Friends", Brainy approaches Harmony saying "Harmony Smurf! Let me entertain you" before being booted. "Let Me Entertain You" is a title of a song by British band Music/{{Queen}} as well as from ''Gypsy: A Musical Fable''.
* When the Smurfs believe a comet is coming to destroy the world in "The Comet Is Coming", they plan to send Baby Smurf [[Franchise/{{Superman}} to another planet in a rocket as the last survivor]] of Earth.
* In "The Village Vandal", Brainy dons a deerstalker and a magnifying glass in order to solve why things are breaking apart in the village, calling himself [[Franchise/SherlockHolmes Sherlock Smurf]].

* During their practice for a surprise talent show for Papa Smurf in "Smurfette's Dancing Shoes," Hefty introduces Greedy and his juggling pie act:
-->"And now... [[Series/TheTonightShow heeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrre's Greedy]]!"
** In order to rescue Smurfette from marrying the imp, the Smurfs travel to [[Literature/TheLegendOfSleepyHollow Dreadful Hollow]] to collect a feather from the giant vulture (Hefty, Brainy, Jokey and Clumsy), fetch fire from the volcano (Handy, Vanity, Greedy and Lazy) and go get the fabled blue diamond from the cave (Papa, Harmony, Dreamy and Grouchy).
* Brainy, Jokey (who [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom grabs and carries]] an upside down Vanity), Clumsy, Smurfette and Grandpa [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk run from a tidal wave]] caused by a boulder puncturing a cliff holding water in "Fortune Cookies''".
* When Handy takes his turn at the telescope at the beginning of "Land Of Lost And Found", he sees both [[UsefulNotes/{{Constellations}} Big Dipper and Little Dipper]].
* In "Put Upon Puppy," upon entering Smurf Village:
--> '''Gargamel:''' [[Film/TheShining Heeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrre's Gargamel]]!
* Grouchus Smurfus comes to life and [[BreakingTheFourthWall gives the audience a wink]] at the end of "The Monumental Grouch" much like how the Art/StatueOfLiberty does at the end of ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail''.
* At the beginning of "Bigmouth Smurf," Gargamel chases Greedy, Harmony, Smurfette and Painter wearing four mechanical arms like [[Comicbook/SpiderMan Doc Ock]].
* The play the Smurfs are watching at the beginning of "The Fastest Wizard In The World" is ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' with Clumsy and Smurfette as the main leads doing the [[SignatureScene famous balcony]] scene.
* Transforming herself into a young beautiful maiden in order to get the other earring from Gargamel from "The Magical Earrings", Hogatha flies out on her buzzard saying "[[BeamMeUpScotty Fly my pet]]! [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Fly, fly, fllly]]!" before crashing right into her castle.

[[folder:The Smurfs]]
* After they landed in New York:
--> '''Smurfette:''' [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Smurfs, we're not in Smurf Village anymore]].
* When Smurfette shows her new dress to the other Smurfs, it is [[Film/TheSevenYearItch blown up by the air]] coming from the floor air vent and she has to quickly pat it down like what Creator/MarilynMonroe did.
* Upon explaining why he doesn't want the Smurfs to be wondering outside the apartment, Patrick mentions [[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial E.T.]] much to their confusion.
* When Gargamel sees a moth, [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings he whispers to it in an attempt to summon giant eagles]] in order to escape prison.
** Before the moth takes off, Gargamel says "[[BeamMeUpScotty Fly nyethral, fly]]..." a misquote of [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Wicked Witch of the West]]'s actual line of "Fly, fly, fly!" to which Gargamel says as he watches the insect fly off.
* As a swarm of flies approach the prison incarcerating Gargamel, "[[Film/ApocalypseNow Ride of the Valkyries]]" is heard playing.
* At one point, [[Music/KatyPerry Smurfette]] says "[[ActorAllusion I kissed a Smurf and I liked it]]".
* The taxi Patrick gets into, unknowingly carrying Clumsy, and the Smurfs hop on advertises Music/BlueManGroup on the triangular advertisement display.
** In Times Square, ads for ''Series/{{Community}}'', ''Theatre/SouthPacific'', ''[[UsefulNotes/UltimateFightingChampionship UFC 116]]'', ''Theatre/InTheHeights'', ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stomp_%28theatrical_show%29 STOMP]]'', ''WesternAnimation/ArthurChristmas'', ''AT LARGE CHICAGO'', ''Film/BillyElliot'', ''Theatre/WestSideStory'' and Music/GreenDay's "Music/AmericanIdiot" are seen.
** While riding on top the cab, Gutsy mistakes someone dressed as the Art/{{Statue of Liberty}} for a green goblin and Smurfette mistakes another wearing an [[Series/SesameStreet Elmo]] costume as a red troll.
*** The fact Gutsy mistakes said person in statue costume for a [[Franchise/SpiderMan green goblin]].
** After Smurfette's line "This village is amazing Papa," they pass a UsefulNotes/McDonalds and ''another'' one is seen in the scene after Brainy says "blend in," right before we cut to the Winslow's apartment building.
** The UNICEF organization based in New York is also seen, ya know, the one that used the [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs cartoon opening theme]] for a [[SugarApocalypse public service announcement]] intending to raise consciousness effort of reforming [[TykeBomb child]] [[ChildSoldiers soldiers]] in Burundi.[[note]]UNICEF can be spotted in the background little to the left from the middle point of the screen eighteen minutes, thirty seconds into the film, the words are blue and all lowercase.[[/note]]
* The apartment building Patrick and Grace live in is called [[Series/{{Glee}} McKinley]], which is also a {{actor allusion}}.
* Scottish Smurf Gutsy cries out "[[Film/{{Braveheart}} FREEEDOOOM]]!" just like Creator/MelGibson.
* Deciding to follow Patrick to where he works in order to find a star gazer, the Smurfs hop onto another taxi advertising UsefulNotes/BluRay.
* While at the toy store, Smurfette sees a row of [[http://www.madc.org/ Madam Alexander]] brand of dolls and decides to try on the dresses.
** The scene after Grace grabs Smurfette and runs from the girls shows Patrick passing by a life-like [[Film/ANewHope Che]][[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack wba]][[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi cca]] doll in the background while looking for Clumsy.
** Azrael is shot out of the leaf blower and lands into the section selling ''Franchise/HelloKitty'' merchandise.
* Gargamel says "[[Film/BrokebackMountain I wish I could quit you]]" to Azrael.
* Patrick introduces ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' to Brainy, Clumsy, Grouchy and Gutsy, with the song performed being the Music/RunDMC remix of Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s "Walk This Way."
** The Smurfs even pose like Music/RunDMC during their rap and even do their {{theme tune cameo}} to its beat.
** And they also try wriggling their tongues like [[Music/{{KISS}} Gene Simmons]], though they have no idea who he is. They're only doing it because Patrick did it, telling them it's a "rock face".
* Patrick refers to his boss as "[[Literature/TheHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella]] [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians De Odile]]."
* During the pictured end credits, there's a picture of Vanity, Farmer, Greedy and three other Smurfs (one in the red overalls is not to be confused for Papa, Painter or even Slouchy[[note]]albeit he and the other Smurflings may not even exist in this universe[[/note]] let alone Handy) are [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-G1kNmrhuLLU/Tn0KkN-AWII/AAAAAAAAAss/5kzimnad29U/s1600/vlcsnap2011092001h06m03.jpg having lunch on a girder high above the reconstruction of Smurf Village]] is like the well known black and white ''Lunch atop a Skyscraper'' photo depicts [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/13/Lunch-atop-a-skyscraper-c1932.jpg eleven men eating lunch, seated on a girder with their feet dangling above the New York City streets]] 256 meters/840 feet in the air during the construction of the RCA Building, later renamed the GE Building in 1988.

* Brainy's music band is called the '[[{{Superman}} Brainiacs]].'
* In the novelization, Grouchy tells the M&M plushie that he was reading a book titled "[[Film/EatPrayLove Eat, Smurf, Love]]".

[[folder:The Smurfs 2]]
* The movie features a hideous magician kidnapping a young female in a white dress into the underground lake of the Paris Opera House in order to manipulate her and get what he wants. [[ThePhantomOfTheOpera Sounds familiar]]?
* Gargamel namedrops [[Theatre/LesMiserables another Paris-set musical]].
* According to Gargamel, Azrael has a Website/{{Facebook}} page.
** Social Smurf mentions a website called [[Website/{{Facebook}} Smurfbook]].
* Hackus shouts "[[WesternAnimation/KimPossible BOO]][[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans YAH]]!"[[note]][[Creator/WillFriedle Ron Stoppable]]'s and [[Creator/KharyPayton Cyborg]]'s [[CatchPhrase catchphrase]][[/note]] while coming to Vexy's rescue when Azrael's about to swipe at her when both Naughties are first introduced.
* Smurfette says "No Smurf left behind" while [[spoiler:magically making two more magical crystals]] can allude to the shortened theme "Ohana means family. And family means {{no one gets left behind}}... or forgotten" from ''Disney/LiloAndStitch''. Hackus even says "Broken family!" when Smurfette breaks the glass holding her prisoner.
** "No Smurf left behind" could also refer to the No Child Left Behind Act.
* After Gargamel feeds Hackus, he waits for a "thank you" but gets a burp instead to which he accepts. Now [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} who]] said burping was a compliment? ([[AccidentallyCorrectWriting It actually IS in some cultures]].)
* Victor uses a [[Franchise/StarWars lightsaber]] toy in order to swipe at the Smurfs who arrived at Grace and Patrick's apartment.
** Gargamel the black-clad baddie attempting to corrupt blonde Smurfette: "I am your father. Search your feelings, you know it to be true".
* Clumsy does [[Film/TheKarateKid the crane pose]] after the klutz falls on the floor along with the iPad holding Gargamel's plans when he, Papa, Vanity and Grouchy are in said wizard's room.
* After failing to get information on what Gargamel is staying in, Grace is not only still holding that ''[[UsefulNotes/{{France}} L'EXPRESS]]'' weekly news magazine from the first scene in Paris but she notices and picks up a pamphlet advertising an Creator/AudreyHepburn film festival that's coming to UsefulNotes/{{Paris}} before leaving.
** Wearing a black sleeveless dress with high heels and hat, Grace returns to the hotel Gargamel's staying at, claiming to be his manager "Madame [[Film/MyFairLady Doolittle]]" returning from her Film/{{Roman holiday}}.
** Hotel manager reveals the name of Gargamel's room as the "[[UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte Napolèon]] Suite".
** While trying to get to the fifth floor on the elevator, the assistant manager gets on and asks Grace if she has her key card:
--->'''Grace:''' I just... left it. I was having [[Literature/BreakfastAtTiffanys breakfast]]... [[Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys at Tiffany's]][[note]]Also a song by Deep Blue Something.[[/note]]... and I left it there. I'll go back and get it".
** As described two paragraphs above, Grace even wears a ''very'' similar dress to what Hepburn wore in ''Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys''.
* Hackus spazzes like [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Taz]] [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures the]] [[WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes Tasma]][[WesternAnimation/TazMania nian]] [[WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow Devil]].
* As Vexy and Smurfette (Hackus is with latter) race each other on storks, Smurfette shouts "[[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheatricalCartoons Smurf, Smurf and away]]!" one of Superman's catchphrases at that time.
** Four seconds later we get "[[Film/{{Titanic 1997}} Hackus king of world]]!"
* Vanity mentions the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Flying_Wallendas Flying Wallendas]] when he is guessing what Smurfette has become in response to Clumsy saying "But you saw her Papa, she's one of them" in regards to the elder Smurf announcing they're gonna get Smurfette.
* During Narrator's telling of how Smurfette came to be, Grouchy calls her a "[[Literature/{{Frankenstein}} Frankensmurf]]."
** Panicky even shouts "[[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} IT'S ALIVE]]!" [[spoiler:after Smurfette [[AllJustADream turns back into a Naughty]].]]
** [[spoiler:Naughty turned Smurfette uses the miniature dragon wand]] against the Smurfs trying to escape, sending them flying in [[Film/TheMatrix slow motion]].
* Gargamel's plan to destroy the Smurf Village is described as "[[Literature/BookOfRevelation total Smurf-a-geddon]]" as seen on the iPad.
* In response to Smurfette's warning [[spoiler:about using the miniature dragon wand against the wizard]]:
-->'''Gargamel:''' Why... that hurts... I am your father. [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack Search your feelings, you know them to be true]].
* Grace giddily remarks "I'm like [[Creator/MerylStreep Meryl smurfin' Streep]]!" when explaining how she got the waiter's outfit from the Plaza Athènèe laundry room by claiming to be Creator/AudreyHepburn's international apparel inspector granddaughter on a surprise visit.
* Hackus saying "It burns!" when he hears Smurfette singing the {{theme tune cameo}} is a shout-out to vampires' weakness to holy symbols such as crosses.
* Music/LittleRichard's "Tutti Frutti" (performed by Buckwheat Zydeco) is playing in the candy store.
* As Patrick leaves the restaurant after saving duck-transformed Victor from being dinner along with freeing the other ducks:
-->'''Victor:''' Take to the skies! [[UsefulNotes/CivilRightsMovement Free at last! Free at last!]]\\
'''Patrick:''' What are you? [[UsefulNotes/MartinLutherKingJr Martin Luther Wing]]?
** Before noticing the four Smurfs falling, Victor mentions on becoming a "[[Comicbook/FreedomFighters free]][[VidoGame/FreedomFighters dom]] [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM flig]][[WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground hter]]".
* Name of Patrick's parrot was '[[Myth/ClassicalMythology Zeus]].'
* During Grouchy's flatulence episode while taking a bath, Vanity asks "Great [[{{God}} Smurf]] in heaven, what have you eaten?" to which the grouch says "It's okay! Every time a Smurf toots, someone smiles!"\\
The line is a possible parody of the "[[Film/ItsAWonderfulLife... every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings]]" quote said by Zuzu Bailey.
** Or a parody of a parody said by the Clown in ''Film/{{Spawn}}''.
* As Gargamel plummets back to earth from the stratosphere, he's begging "Help me Wanda, help, help me Wanda!" which sounds like the repetitive chorus to Music/TheBeachBoys' "Help Me Rhonda" song.
* About to push the button to start the Smurf Extractor, Gargamel says "One small step for wizards... one giant leap for me!" which is a variant of Neil Armstrong's "that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind by saying "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind!"
* The station that Nancy O'Dell appears talking about Gargamel captivating the world with his magic captivating the world has the initials ''[=ET=]'', short for ''Series/EntertainmentTonight''.
** The scene with Gargamel sending the taxi up in the air only for it to fall on him is on ''Website/{{youtube}}''.
* How the released Smurf Essence streak through the Paris night sky is very reminiscent to the Aurora Borealis/Polar Aurorae, better known as the "Northern Lights".
* Gargamel says his father [[Literature/TheRing dropped him down the well]].
* In regards to 'Le Wanda' that Gargamel has:
-->"[[Film/{{Scarface 1983}} Say hello to my enormous friend]]!"
* As Papa, Vanity, Clumsy and Grouchy ride under the platter covers on a room service cart and become slimy briefly with snail and oyster juice, Grouchy says "it's all [[WesternAnimation/TheSnorks snork]]" as a snail in a shell sticks to his face.

!!For the Sony Pictures animated features:
[[folder:The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol]]
* [[CaptainObvious Title and plot]] is based off Creator/CharlesDickens's ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'', with Grouchy as Scrooge, Smurfette as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Brainy as the Ghost of Christmas Present, and Hefty as the Ghost of Christmas Future
* Just like [[Film/AChristmasStory Flick]], [[WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000 Madison Spaghettini Papadopoulus]], [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody London Tipton]] and countless others, a random Smurf gets his [[TongueOnTheFlagpole tongue stuck on a pole]].
* Regarding Azrael while chasing Grouchy around the laboratory:
--> '''Gargamel:''' I see that you've met [[SantaClaus Santa]] [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Claws]]![[note]]Jack Skellington keeps referring SantaClaus as "Sandy Claws".[[/note]]

[[folder:The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow]]
* Title spoofs Washington Irving's ''Literature/TheLegendOfSleepyHollow''.
* Ghost of a HeadlessHorseman is said to haunt the area.
** When discussing about the animated feature's take on ''The Legend of Sleepy Hollow'', director Stephan Franck states "We didn't want to do something pretty scary, like the Creator/TimBurton [[Film/SleepyHollow version]]... ".
* A drop of pumpkin goop from Brainy's shoe falls in front of the prowling Azrael, alerting the cat to Gutsy, Smurfette and the bespectacled Smurf trapped in cages above him is similar to what happened to [[WesternAnimation/TheBatman Batman]] and Film/SpiderMan1.\\
A severely beaten Batman hides from Detective Ellen Yin by hanging directly above her but as she walks away, a bead of sweat falls from Batman's head, dripping onto the sidewalk, causing Ellen to look up but Batman's already gone.\\
As for Spidey, Peter returns home after a fight with the Green Goblin and has to cling onto his room's ceiling as Aunt May, Mary Jane Watson, Harry Osborne and Norman Osborne, Green Goblin's identity, investigate a noise in his room. As they leave, a drop of blood from the cut Peter receives from the aforementioned fight drips to the floor, catching Norman's attention. The man looks up, only for Peter to be gone, prompting him to look out the small balcony, to which Peter's hiding underneath.
* How Gutsy begins swinging his cage back and forth is what happens to Joshamee Gibbs, [[Creator/OrlandoBloom Will Turner]], Cotton, Marty and two other Black Pearl crew swing in the cages made of human bones in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest''.\\
For Will and the others, it's to reach the face of a cliff they can climb up in order to escape and the Scottish Smurf is getting enough velocity to hit against the cage holding Brainy, which will bounce off Smurfette's cage in hopes to knocking them to the ground so they can escape.
* According to Brainy, the Horseman can't cross the [[Literature/TheLegendOfSleepyHollow covered]] [[Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad bridge]] leading out of Smurfy Hollow.
** Unable to pass the covered bridge, the Headless Horseman tosses his pumpkin head in order to get to Gargamel and Azrael safely inside the bridge much like how [[Film/SleepyHollow another Headless Horseman]] who's unable to pass church grounds claimed Baltus Van Tassel as his victim by snapping off a fencepost, ties it to a rope, throws it through the window like a spear and drags him out of said church.
