!!''Franchise/TheSmurfs'' are the [[TropeNamer Trope Smurfers]] for
* IfItTastesBadItMustBeGoodForYou
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* {{Smurfing}}

!!For the franchise in general:
* MagnumOpusDissonance: Peyo's favorite work, and actually his original main one was ''Johan and Pewitt'' (''Johan and Pirlouit'' in its original French title)... But, one day, in one of this series' album, appeared a certain band of little blue creatures. They were intended to be one-shot characters, but quickly became {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s... And from then, ''The Smurfs'' (''Les Schtroumpfs'') became the single most remembered work of Peyo.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There was a Smurfs educational game called ''Smurf Play & Learn'' advertised by Coleco that would have been released for the UsefulNotes/ColecoVision, as well as ''Smurfette's Birthday'' and ''Papa Smurf's Treasure Hunt'', none of which were ever worked on.

!!For the [[ComicBook/TheSmurfs comic books]]:
* CashCowFranchise: Thanks to HannaBarbera.
* CreatorBacklash: Peyo was quite sorry that the Smurfs became so popular he couldn't concentrate as much on his other series.
* ExecutiveMeddling: When Papercutz translated ‘The Black Smurfs’ comic book into English, they changed the plague ridden Smurfs to purple based on the cartoon adaptation to avoid {{unfortunate implication}}
** Even earlier in a Random House publication of ''Smurfery'' in "Romeo And Smurfette," where the black paint Jokey uses to disguise himself as a Black Smurf to play a prank on somebody was changed to green (and now purple in the Papercutz reprint).
** And like the cartoon adaptation, Papercutz changed the Swoof’s skin colors from orange to green of the original comic book story "The Astro Smurf," also for the same reasons.
* NamesTheSame
** Chef Smurf and Baker Smurf were sometimes referred to by each other's names in earlier comics, but later comics, as well as the live-action movies, showed the two to be different characters.
** Sculptor Smurf and Tailor Smurf in the original French. Which makes for a few confusing scenes when Papa Smurf calls for one and the other appears. (This isn't completely consistent, though, so it's possible that he eventually got tired of the miscommunications and changed his name.) Averted in the English translation of ''The Smurflings'', where he is simply referred to as Smurf.
* NoExportForYou: Papercutz has been starting to publish Smurfs comic books that haven't seen an English translation for years.
* [[OutlivedItsCreator Outsmurfed Its Creator]]: Peyo's son continues to write the stories, with other artists doing the cartoon work.
!!For the [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfsandtheMagicFlute 1976 film "The Smurfs And The Magic Flute"]] by Belvision Studios:

!!For the [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs Hanna-Barbera cartoon]] animated series:
* ActorAllusion: Not the [[WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines first]] [[WesternAnimation/WackyRaces time]] both Creator/PaulWinchell and Creator/DonMessick worked together as an owner and his pet.
** Creator/DonMessick voiced three other cats before Azrael named [[WesternAnimation/TheRuffAndReddyShow Ruff]], [[WesternAnimation/JosieAndThePussyCats Sebastian]] and [[WesternAnimation/HongKongPhooey Spot]].
** Before Miner Smurf, Creator/AlanYoung provided a Scottish accent to [[Film/TheTimeMachine1960 David Filby]] and [[Series/MisterEd Wilbur Post’s father]].
** In the episode ‘The Masked Pie Smurfer,’ Papa tries to solve the identity of titular Masked Pie Smurfer. Not only are both Franchise/ScoobyDoo and Papa voiced by Creator/DonMessick but Hefty’s voiced by [[Creator/FrankWelker Fred Jones]] himself.
** During 'The Crooner Smurf,' Harmony gains the ability to sing like a professional. In actuality, Creator/HamiltonCamp is a songwriter/musician.
** If Henry Polic III provided the voice of Tracker who plays the role of a guard in “The Adventures of Robin Smurf,” than Polic had worked in a RobinHood production before as [[Series/WhenThingsWereRotten Sheriff of Nottingham]] alongside Dick Gautier, the voice of Wooly Smurf as well as additional voices, who played the titular outlaw.
*** Dutch film director and voice actor Arnold Gelderman, the Netherland dubbed voice for Jokey, played said outlaw in the [[Disney/RobinHood Disney]] version of the folklore.\\
Likewise, Brainy's and Clumsy's French dubbed voice actor Francis Lax as well has Hefty's French dubbed voice actor Albert Augier provided the voices of Nutsy and Trigger the two vultures.
** Gargamel brings Jokey’s caricature dummy of said wizard to life to cause havoc in Smurf Village to which Creator/PaulWinchell voiced. Winchell was a ventriloquist star from 1950s and 1960s television and films.
** Ray Walston, who was the voice of Scruple's teacher in "The Enchanted Quill", was also Jeff Spicoli's teacher in ''Film/FastTimesAtRidgemontHigh''.
** Farmer Smurf's voice actor Creator/AlanYoung has played a farmer before in 1952 movie ''Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick'' as titular Aaron Crick. Farmer even refers to himself as a 'country bumpkin' in one episode!

* EditedForSyndication: When episodes from ''The Smurfs'' cartoon show started appearing in the syndicated ''Smurfs Adventures'' show, there were not only cuts from the shorter episodes to make two of them fit within a thirty-minute showing time, but there were also episodes where the audio was noticeably sped up, resulting in the Smurfs and even Gargamel sounding more helium-ish. Some of the season set volumes of ''The Smurfs'' that were released in Australia and the United Kingdom even featured the episodes that were edited for syndication instead of their original unedited versions.
* ExecutiveMeddling:"The Purple Smurfs" were black in the original book, done to avoid any {{unfortunate implications}}. Also, the Swoofs from “the Astrosmurf” were changed from orange to green for the same reason.

*** ''In the European French dub'':\\
[[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Avid hunter]] Bigmouth once played [[Film/SpaceJam basketball against a race of evil aliens]] alongside MichaelJordan.
* NamesTheSame: Gargamel posed as a Smurf going by this name in one episode, namely because of the nose.
* NoExportForYou: The cartoon show has an inverted problem: foreign distributors are able to release season sets (and even the specials) on DVD without a hassle, but Warner Bros. is only able to make season sets available through download streaming services, with Season 2 as well as Seasons 7 through 9 (and the specials "The Smurfic Games" and "Smurfily Ever After") excluded from availability.
* TheOtherDarrin: Danny Goldman for the most part did Brainy and was replaced by Barry Gordon before Goldman took the role back.
** Weepy Smurf was voiced by Creator/MonaMarshall in his first appearance but by a different person in his next.
** As mentioned above ''and'' below, [[{{Julie McWhirter}} Julie [=McWhirter=] Dees]] replaced Creator/PaulWinchell for Baby in the final season and an unknown person did the voice of Gargamel's ancestors.
** Norma [=MacMillan=] voiced little witch Brenda in her first appearance and then by Russi Taylor for her second.
* [[PlayingAgainstType Smurfing Against Type]]: Songwriter and singer Creator/HamiltonCamp as Harmony.
** Another songwriter/singer example is Amanda [=McBroom=] who voices Chlorhydris, a character who loathes music.
* [[TalkingToHimself Smurfing to Himself]]: If Kip King ''did'' do the voice of Tracker, than he and Tailor interacted in “''S-Shivering S-Smurfs''."
** Creator/HamiltonCamp - On ''RARE'' occasions did Harmony and Greedy interact. When one of them usually did, the other remained silent or, in one case, Greedy was in a [[ItMakesSenseInContext deathlike sleep]] at the time . . .
** Creator/MichaelBell - Handy, Lazy and Grouchy had subtly exchanged words.
*** Grouchy and his statue, Grouchous Smurfus.
** Creator/AlanYoung - Farmer and Miner in "''The Root of Evil''," are discussing the irrigation system the coalminer constructed while working in the field and later got into a brawl courteous of some root of evil.
** Alan Oppenheimer - Vanity and Homnibus at the beginning of “''To Smurf a Thief''.”
** Again, Creator/PaulWinchell as Gargamel and Baby for the first eight seasons . . . blah bleh blah . . .\\
. . . and {{Julie McWhirter}} as Baby Smurf and Sassette for its last.
** Creator/JuneForay - Jokey gives Mother Nature a huge surprise box [[spoiler:full of flowers]] at the end of "''The Smurfs' Springtime Special''."
** FrankWelker - Hefty has interacted with Clockwork, Pushover, Wild and Poet.
** Creator/DonMessick - Papa, Dreamy, Sweepy and even Azrael interacted though not all to one another.
** Bill Callaway - Clumsy and Painter
*** In the ''Dutch dub'' . . .\\

!!For ''VideoGame/SmurfRescueInGargamelsCastle'':
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** An Intellivision version and a UsefulNotes/ColecoVision Super Game module version were announced, but were never worked on or released.
** The UsefulNotes/{{Intellivision}} version was actually being worked on by [=CollectorVision=], but due to legal reasons, it got converted into ''[[http://www.retrogamenetwork.com/2014/07/01/collectorvision-to-bring-homebrews-following-adventures-of-sydney-hunter-to-multiple-platforms/ Sydney Hunter And The Shrines Of Peril]]''.

!!For the [[VideoGame/TheSmurfs1994 1994 videogame]] released by Infogrames:
* NoExportForYou: Except for the Gameboy version, this game never saw a full American release.

!!For ''The Smurfs Travel The World'' video game:

* ActorAllusion:
** In one scene, Smurfette says “[[KatyPerry I kissed a Smurf and I . . . liked it]]!” and the fact she sings the Smurfs’ song.
** Gutsy’s voice actor Creator/AlanCumming playing a blue skinned character in the form of [[Film/X2XMenUnited Nightcrawler]]. Plus he and John Kassir both appeared in [[Film/ReeferMadnessTheMusical a musical]] together.
** Another Smurf example is Chef Smurf being voiced by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.
** Greedy's voice actor Kenan Thompson had previously played a [[Film/FatAlbert cartoon character made real]], though in this case, it's more like live action based on cartoon which in turn is based on comic.
** And Creator/JonathanWinters also time-traveled as a Smurf before.
** When Gargamel is first introduced, he's using a Papa Smurf and Smurfette marionette puppets, he provides different voices for each one. The guy who plays Gargamel is experienced voice actor Creator/HankAzaria.
*** The fact Gargamel has puppets could allude to his '80s cartoon self being voiced by ventriloquist Creator/PaulWinchell.
** Besides Azrael, Creator/FrankWelker voiced (or at least provided vocal effects) of other felines before. Most notable ones being [[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouseClubhouse Fig]][[WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse aro]], [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Furrball]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} R]][[WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries aj]][[Disney/AladdinTheReturnOfJafar a]][[Disney/AladdinAndTheKingOfThieves h]], [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryKids Tom Cat]], [[WesternAnimation/GoofTroop Waffles]], [[WesternAnimation/TheGarfieldShow Garfield]] and [[Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistinTime Luci]][[Disney/CinderellaIIDreamsComeTrue fer]].

** Joe Urban, the Riker’s Island inmate lifting weights closest to Gargamel, played an inmate twice before in ''Michael & Michael Have Issues'' and ''Aurthur''.

* TheDanza: Patrick is the middle name of Patrick Winslow's actor, Neil Harris.
* ExecutiveMeddling: This brought Gutsy Smurf into the film, apparently because Hefty Smurf wasn't sufficiently macho (or Scottish) to be TheBigGuy.
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[Series/HermansHead Jay Nichols]] is now Gargamel.
** A pregnant [[Series/{{Glee}} Emma Pillsbury]] lives in an apartment with her . . .\\
. . . husband [[Series/HowIMetYourMother Barney Stinson]] who quit his [[Series/DoogieHowserMD physician]] job to become an advertising executive at Anjelou Cosmetics whose supervisor . . .\\
