     The 100 Smurfs 

Papa Smurf (Grand Schtroumpf)
Voiced by: Michel Elias [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Mike Reynolds [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Don Messick - The Smurfs cartoon show

The leader and father figure of the Smurfs.

Alchemist Smurf (Apprenti Schtroumpf)

Wants very much to be an alchemist/wizard, like Papa Smurf, but lacks skills and experience, causing his experiments to be total failures. Appears only in the comic books; in the cartoon show the role was played by Clumsy Smurf.

  • Baleful Polymorph: The result of his biggest experiment; he turned himself into a strange dragon-like creature and needed help to change back.
  • Compelling Voice: Attempted and failed in "The Smurfs' Apprentice" when a gag formula he mixed up makes him believe he can compel his fellow Smurfs to do his bidding simply by command. He found that out the hard way when he tried this on Papa Smurf.
  • Professor Guinea Pig: To be fair, he tried to test the formula on other Smurfs, but everyone refused.
  • Stage Magician: Appears as one in later one-page gags.

Archeologist Smurf (Schtroumpf Archéologue)

A Smurf with a passion for archeology, who likes to do excavations and dig for old treasures. He can be recognized on his Smurf-cap-shaped helmet, and a good friend of Miner Smurf — probably because they both spend much time digging underground. Appears only in the comic books.

Architect Smurf (Schtroumpf Sculpteur)

The village architect, who designs all the buildings in the village. He sometimes gets a little frustrated that the other Smurfs keep preferring the old, classic designs to their houses and are seldom interested in his new and exciting ideas for buildings.

Baker Smurf (Schtroumpf Boulanger)/Pastrycook Smurf (Schtroumpf Pâtissier)
Voiced by: B.J. Novack - The Smurfs movie & The Smurfs 2

A Smurf who bakes bread, cakes and pies, and takes great pleasure in his work. Appears only in the live-action movie;in the cartoon his role is taken by Greedy Smurf.

Barber Smurf (Schtroumpf Barbu)
Voiced by: (possibly) Don Messick - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village barber and hair stylist. Doesn't see a lot of work because only a few Smurfs actually have hair, but when he does work, he does so with great enthusiasm, chatting and singing to his customers in a vague Italian accent.

Blacksmith Smurf (Schtroumpf Forgeron)

The village blacksmith. He appears only in the comic books.

Brainy Smurf (Schtroumpf à Lunettes)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]’ Robert Axelrod [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute

The village intellectual and Papa Smurf's laboratory assistant.

Camper Smurf (Schtroumpf Campeur)

A Smurf who likes camping. He appears only in the comic books.

Carpenter Smurf (Schtroumpf Menuisier)

Appearing only in the comic, and only in minor roles in two stories, this Smurf provides wood for constructions (as opposed to Lumberjack Smurf, who provides firewood), and also makes furniture. He doesn't appear in the cartoon, as the "carpentry" part of his job is provided by Handy Smurf and the "wood providing" part by Timber Smurf.

Chef Smurf (Schtroumpf Cuisinier)/Cook Smurf (Schtroumpf Cuistot)
Voiced by: Wolfgang Puck - The Smurfs movie
Unknown Voice Actor - The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol

The village chef. Appears in the comic books and live-action movie, while the Animated Adaptation merges this character with Greedy's.

  • Supreme Chef: He really enjoys making exquisite and refined foods, and at one points even kicks Bigmouth for eating his food too fast without giving himself time to enjoy it.
  • Team Chef: As the only chef in Smurf Village, at least until Baker is established as a separate Smurf, he becomes this.

Clueless Smurf (Schtroumpf Paumé)
Voiced by: Shaun White (The Smurfs 2)

Clumsy Smurf (Schtroumpf Maladroit)/Dopey/Dimwitty Smurf (Schtroumpf Bêta)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Bill Callaway - The Smurfs cartoon
Ron Sparks - Smurf Racer Video Game

His name defines his character, plus he's not very bright.

  • Ascended Extra/Breakout Character: He's a minor character in the original comics, his appearances usually based around being told to fetch or do something and messing it up, but he's very much a major character in the cartoon, and ends up as the hero of the live-action movie.
  • Bandage Mummy: In The Smurfs and the Magic Flute.
  • Catch Phrase: "Gosh!" and "Golly!" in the cartoons.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In the comics, he has a trend for this, most often via bringing an item totally unrelated to what he has been asked to get.
  • Composite Character: The cartoon Clumsy combines traits of Clumsy and Dopey/Dimwitty Smurf from the comics, as well as playing the role of Alchemist Smurf in one episode.
  • The Ditz: Very much so.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: In the cartoons, however this was toned down in the live-action films.
  • The Klutz: It's in his name.
  • Nice Guy: You couldn't ask for a sweeter-natured Smurf; sometimes he borders on Dumb Is Good.
  • Something Else Also Rises: The floppy part of his hat rises when Smurfette kisses him in "The Smurf Garden".
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Type 1, with Brainy. Clumsy is the only Smurf who genuinely admires Brainy and dotes on him, usually to Brainy's annoyance.
    • When his glasses have their lenses broken, though, Clumsy becomes Brainy's eyes, and that once Brainy greatly appreciates Clumsy.

Coalminer Smurf (Schtroumpf Charbonnier)

The village coal miner. He appears only in the comic books, as his role in the cartoon show is taken over by Miner.

Cobbler Smurf (Schtroumpf Cordonnier)
Voiced by: Hamilton Camp - The Smurfs cartoon show

A Smurf who likes to make shoes, but has very few jobs because Smurfs tend to have their shoes made by Tailor Smurf as an extension of their pants. His only regular customer is Smurfette, who does wear shoes. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

Complimentary Smurf
Does not actually appear on-screen in any incarnation, but is mentioned by Brainy in the live-action movie as a Smurf who "always has such nice things to say."

Crazy Smurf (Schtroumpf Zinzin)
Voiced by: John Kassir (The Smurfs movie & The Smurfs 2)

Easily identified by the fact that his hat is on backwards, this Smurf acts as the village siren/alarm when danger approaches. He appears in the live-action movie only.

Dabbler Smurf
Voiced by: (possibly) Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

A Smurf constantly seeking his true calling in life. He tries his hand at everything, but seldom, if ever, finishes what he starts because by the time he's got going, he'll think of something else he'd rather try.

Dentist Smurf

The village dentist. He appears only in the comic books.

Disabled Smurf (Schtroumpf Eclopé)

A Smurf who is disabled. He appears only in the comic books, while his role in the cartoon show was played in one episode by Hefty.

Doctor Smurf (Schtroumpf Médecin)

A Smurf who fancies himself a doctor, but his superficial knowledge of medicine makes his treatments lackluster at best and harmful at worst. Only featured in the comic; in the cartoon his role was taken by Dabbler.

  • Back-Alley Doctor: Though a well-meaning one, who takes great pride in his self-appointed role as the village medic.
  • Dressed To Heal
  • Worst Aid: In-universe example of the trope, as his less-than-perfect idea of first aid often causes some fairly realistic (if still cartoonish) damage to his patients.

Dreamy Smurf/Astrosmurf (Schtroumpf Rêveur/Cosmoschtroumpf)
Voiced by: Don Messick - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village dreamer and adventurer, who became Astrosmurf in the album of the same name and two cartoon episodes (an Animated Adaptation of such album and a sequel episode), and captain of the S.S. Smurf II in several others.

Drummer Smurf (Schtroumpf Tambour)

Appears only in the comic book though made a quick yet silent appearance in The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow.

  • Decomposite Character: In "King Smurf" Harmony Smurf gets the job as the drummer who gives announcements to the village. Several comics later, in "The Finance Smurf" they are separate characters. It's hard to guess which of the intermediate appearances are Harmony Smurf or Drummer Smurf.

Editor Smurf
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor - The Smurfs cartoon show

Despite his nickname, he's more a paperboy than an editor, bringing out the Smurf Village newspaper. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation, since this role is taken by Drummer Smurf in "The Reporter Smurf"

Enamored Smurf (Schtroumpf Amoureux)

A Smurf who is so much in love with the Smurfette that he never thinks of anything else. Appears only in the comic books.

  • Love Makes You Dumb: Or in his case, at least too preoccupied with dreaming about your potential girlfriend than to actually, y'know, try to talk to her.
  • Loves Me Not: A common practise for him.

Equilibrist Smurf (Schtroumpf Equilibriste)

A Smurf who rides around on a unicycle. He appears only in the comic books.

Explorer Smurf (Schtroumpf Explorateur)

A Smurf who likes to do exploring. He appears only in the comic books.

Fakir Smurf (Schtroumpf Fakir)

A snake-charmer Smurf, whose gag is to be able to make noodles and string-like objects rise and dance to the tune of his flute. He appears only in the comic books.

Farmer Smurf (Schtroumpf Paysan)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Alan Young - The Smurfs cartoon show
Joel McCrary - The Smurfs movie and The Smurfs 2 films

The Smurf responsible for growing the village's vegetables. In later seasons, he gets his own Genie in a Bottle, Gourdy, though he generally prefers working for things rather than wishing for them. In the cartoon, and the early comics, he dresses in ordinary Smurf clothes, but in later comics and the live-action movie he wears a straw hat and green overalls, though at one point in the comics, he had worn Smurf pants held by two suspenders with clogs. Though it’s worth mentioning that in the CGI films, his overalls has the attached footing like Handy’s.

  • Nice Hat: In the comic and live-action movie he has a straw hat.
  • Oh My Gods!: "Cre vingt schtroumpfs!" ("Twenty sacred smurfs!") in the original French comics.
  • The One Who Wears Shoes: In his later comic book appearances, when he also wears the green overalls and straw hat.

Finance Smurf (Schtroumpf Financier)

A Smurf who, after learning about money from watching humans, tried to introduce currency among his peers, and for a while worked as their banker, before the system was abandoned. Appears only in the comic books.

  • Money Fetish: He was the only Smurf not to want to abandon the money system and for a while preferred living alone with his money rather than with the other Smurfs. In the end, though, he got lonely and changed his mind.

Fireman Smurf

A Smurf firefighter. He appears only in the comic books, as his role in the cartoon show is taken by Handy Smurf.

Fisher Smurf/Angler Smurf (Schtroumpf Pêcheur)

The village fisherman. His job seems to be rather pointless, since he never catches anything, and even if he had Smurfs don't eat fish anyway. The one time he did catch something (a baby octopus) he went through considerable trouble in order to get it back to its mother. He is, however, very knowledgeable about marine life and can easily identify most types of underwater animals.

  • Berserk Button: A very mild case, but he really doesn't like it when you ask him if the fish are biting (they aren't).
  • Fishing for Sole: He never seems to catch any actual fish... which is just as well, since Smurfs don't seem to eat fish.

Flighty Smurf (Schtroumpf Distrait)
Voiced by: Paul Winchell - The Smurfs cartoon show

The world's most indecisive Smurf, Flighty can't make his mind up about anything.

  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In the comic; not so much in the cartoon.
  • Canon Immigrant: First appeared in the cartoon before his appearance in "The Smurfs And The Book That Tells Everything"
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Though there is an indecisive Smurf who shows up for a couple of scenes in the comic book version of "The Smurfs and the Magic Egg," who causes a bit of annoyance when he can't decide what to wish for. This Smurf is never actually identified as Flighty Smurf, but it's very likely that it is him.

Flying Smurf/Thief Smurf/Aviator Smurf (Schtroumpf Volant)

His biggest dream and passion in life is flying, and he'll do anything in order to achieve this. Appears only in the comic books.

  • Bungling Inventor: When trying to figure out ways to fly.
  • Flight: The dream he tries to fulfill during his Day In The Limelight.
  • Punny Nickname: In French, his name is "Schtroumpf Volant". "voler" in French means either "fly" or "steal" — therefore he can be either Flying Smurf or Thief Smurf, because he steals other Smurfs' belongings to help him in his madcap schemes for achieving flight.

Greedy Smurf/Sweety/Sweetie Smurf (Schtroumpf Gourmand)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Hamilton Camp - The Smurfs cartoon show
Kenan Thompson - The Smurfs movie and The Smurfs 2

Mostly a food freak, but also the village chef in the cartoon show.

  • Big Eater
  • Composite Character: His cartoon version is amalgamated with Chef Smurf and Baker Smurf.
  • Fat and Proud: His CGI model in the movies looks like he has put on a few grams.
  • Growling Gut: Expect to hear this when he goes hungry.
  • The Peeping Tom: His comic book version plays one in "You Don't Smurf Progress".
  • Supreme Chef: In the cartoon, at least; all the Smurfs agree on that point. (So does he, come to think of it; he's the biggest fan of his own food.)
  • Team Chef: Again, in the cartoon. The comic Greedy doesn't enjoy cooking anywhere near as much as he enjoys eating (though he also cooks sometimes, like in "The Smurfette").

Grouchy Smurf/Grumpy Smurf (Le Schtroumpf Grognon)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Michael Bell - The Smurfs cartoon show
Lucas E. Player - Smurf Racer Video Game
Bumper Robinson - The Smurfs 2 Video Game

The village curmudgeon.

  • Birthday Hater: In the cartoon show, he simply hates his birthday, and in "The Secret Of Shadow Swamp" he tries to escape celebrating it.
  • Character Development: Went from Smurf often with Mad Libs Catch Phrase to one allowed to show Hidden Heartof Gold, starting with Baby Smurf.
  • Companion Cube: Has one in the form of a green M&M plushie in the live-action movie.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In the movie series and in A Christmas Carol.
  • Flanderization: In his first appearances in the comics, he was perfectly capable of carrying on a normal conversation, even with his grouchy attitude. Over time, though, his Mad Libs Catch Phrase of "I hate (...)" became more and more prominent in his dialogue, and by the time the cartoon came around, almost all of Grouchy's dialoge was based solely around declaring his hatred for whatever the others were talking about at the time.
    • This is undone and inverted for the live-action movie, where he's far more verbal and sarcastic, and only says "I hate..." a couple of times in the entire movie.
  • Foo Fu: Claims to have a blue belt in Smurf Fu in A Christmas Carol.
  • The Grinch: In A Christmas Carol.
  • Grumpy Bear: In the comic books, it was speculated at one point by other Smurfs that he never quite got over being stung by the Buzz Fly (apparently because he was the first victim and stayed the longest under its effect). In the cartoon show, his behavior is simply natural.
  • Hates Being Touched: In the cartoon show episode "A Hug For Grouchy", he shows a great aversion to hugs. Unfortunately justified in how the characters show a blatant disrespect for his feelings while trying to get him to share his feelings, and how Papa Smurf even encourages it.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: He generally hates everyone and everything, although, he does like Baby Smurf, Smurfette, and Papa Smurf.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Grouchy may say he hates everything, but if there's one person he does love, it's Baby Smurf.
    • According to one comic, he also loves flowers — but he hates the thought of anyone knowing that he loves flowers.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In The Smurfs and the Magic Flute during "Just Like Their Names": "I don't act like my name!"
  • I Hate Past Me: In A Christmas Carol: "Past me is so annoying".
  • Jerkass Façade: In the movie he confesses to the green M&M plushie that he uses his grouchiness to hide his true feelings.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: "I hate (...)"
  • Mooning: Prepares to do this in The Smurfs 2.
  • Papa Wolf: Towards Baby Smurf. It's the most heartwarming thing in the entire cartoon.
    • Most notable in the episode "Grouchy Makes a Splash", in which Grouchy is afraid to swim. But the moment he sees Baby in danger, he immediately dives into the water to rescue him.
  • Perpetual Frowner
  • Pet the Dog: In the episode where Baby Smurf is introduced, when Grouchy Smurf learns that the stork is coming back to take away Baby Smurf, he decides to take him away in the woods because he doesn't want him to leave. When he eventually returns, he cries and shows more emotion that he has ever done in the series.
    • That scene really was a Tear Jerker, and contains some RL implications. Grouchy loved Baby, maybe more than anyone, but the scenes that followed his running away reminded this troper of situations with a too-young parent or slightly older guardian sibling learning that love wasn't enough to care for the child. When a tearful Grouchy comes back, defeated, and says "I HATE GIVING UP!", well, that may be Michael Bell's best performance this side of Ezekiel Rage.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: In A Christmas Carol: "I! HATE! HATS!" And before that..."I! HATE! CHRISTMAS!"
  • Toilet Humor: Is not above letting out farts while bathing in The Smurfs 2.

Gutsy Smurf (Schtroumpf Téméraire)

A kilt-wearing Smurf with a Scottish accent. Appears only in the live-action movie..

Handy Smurf (Schtroumpf Bricoleur)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Michael Bell - The Smurfs cartoon show
John Martin - Smurf Racer Video Game
Unknown Voice Actor - The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol

The village repairman, mechanic and inventor.

Harmony Smurf (Schtroumpf Musicien)/Rocker Smurf
Voiced by: Hamilton Camp - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village musician, who is most often seen playing the trumpet but is equally hopeless with all instruments. He is mostly used as Papa Smurf's herald. Was identified as Rocker Smurf in the Random House English version of "The Astro Smurf".

  • Dreadful Musician
  • Giftedly Bad
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: His singing is so bad that Farmer Smurf in the comic books used his "talent" to bring on the rain.
  • Plagiarism: Accused of doing this in "Harmony Steals The Show" when he performs a symphony that he claims to have written, which turns out to be one that his accuser claims to have written himself and given to Harmony to pass off as his own under a signed contract. He was cleared of that charge when it is revealed that the accuser had plagiarized pieces of other musicians' works to create his own "original" symphony.

Hefty Smurf/Strongman Smurf (Schtroumpf Costaud)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Michael Sorich [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show
Gary Sanderson - Smurf Racer Video Game

The village athlete and strongman; he's the strongest and fittest of all the Smurfs and is usually called upon to perform the toughest physical tasks.

  • Adaptational Wimp: Hardly seen knocking any heads at all in the cartoon show due to the Moral Guardians at the time.
  • Badass Adorable: Though arguably more badass than adorable.
  • Badbutt
  • The Big Guy: Plays this role to the other Smurfs, despite being the same physical size.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: Of the gentler kind.
  • Demoted to Extra: He's a major character in both comics and cartoon, but only appears in a few scenes in the live-action movie. Plays the Smurf Of Christmas Future in A Christmas Carol.
  • Disguised in Drag: Disguised himself as Smurfette to protect her from the unwanted affections of a troll king.
  • In the Hood: As the Smurf Of Christmas Future in A Christmas Carol.
  • Men Don't Cry: Considers Weepy a sissy for his excessive crying, but ends up crying himself.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: At a first glance he follows this trope, but sometimes he shows some biceps. The rest of his physique is still average Smurf, though.
    • In one of his live-action models, Hefty does have some form of body sculpting.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: For a little Smurf, he sure is strong.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Hefty attempts on hitting Smurfette in the cartoon adaptation of "The Smurfette" after she fesses up she's taking orders from Gargamel.

Jokey Smurf (Schtroumpf Farceur)
Voiced by: June Foray - The Smurfs cartoon show)
Holly Stanitz - Smurf Racer Video Game

The village prankster.

  • Asshole Victim: Accidentally became this in "The Kaplowey Scroll" when he made Grouchy angry enough to say the word "kaplowey" which made him disappear. Fortunately, Papa Smurf reversed that.
  • Bandage Mummy: In "Jokey's Funny Bone".
  • Cross Dressing Voice: June Foray in the cartoon show.
  • The Hyena
  • Jerkass
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: At least when it comes to Baby Smurf, he doesn't play his pranks on him, but instead gives him nice presents.
  • Playing Sick: Does it twice in the Animated Adaptation: once in "Jokey's Funny Bone", and another time in "Calling Doctor Smurf".
  • Non-Fatal Explosions: His explosive gifts just leave the victim stained by black soot.
  • The Prankster
  • Who's Laughing Now?: Sometimes the joke gets turned back on him, and he doesn't find it all that funny. At least in the live-action movie he is able to laugh off the gift box that exploded on him.

King Smurf (Le Schtroumpfissime)/Pretentious Smurf (Schtroumpf Prétentieux)

During Papa Smurf's absence, the Smurfs voted which of them would temporarily lead them. The chosen one donned a golden costume and made the others call him king, becoming a tyrant until Papa Smurf's return. When not being King, he's known as "Pretentious Smurf." Appears in the comic only, as the role was played by Brainy Smurf in the cartoon show.

  • Balcony Speech: He delivers one from the balcony of his newly-finished royal palace, thanking his "loyal" subjects for its completion. However, only one Smurf remains standing to give applause to the speech, saying "Long live King Smurf".
  • Drunk with Power: He was a completely normal Smurf until he got into power — then he quickly became a tyrant, began wearing "kingly" clothes, demanded absolute respect and obedience from everyone, got Hefty and other strong Smurfs to act as his bodyguards, threw Smurfs in prison for petty crimes....
  • Hypocritical Humor: Played rather darkly when he chuckles and chides Hefty for being angry with Jokey over the usual "exploding surprise" gift box — but when he himself is the victim of a similar gift box a couple of panels later, he completely flips his lid and has Jokey thrown in jail. This turns out to be the last straw for a number of Smurfs, and thus the rebellion and civil war kicks off in earnest.
  • Less Embarrassing Term: His costume is not yellow, it is gold. Though to be fair, the suit does sparkle when he first shows it off, so it may simply be factual.
  • Too Important to Walk: He's carried with a palanquin in the village, though he averts it during the forest campaign.
  • Tyrant Takes the Helm

Lazy Smurf/Sleepy Smurf (Schtroumpf Paresseux)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Michael Bell - The Smurfs cartoon show

He's usually found lying around somewhere and napping, especially if there's work to be done.

  • The Cameo: In the live-action film series.
  • Flanderization: In the first few comics, his laziness was limited to sleep at work (be it hiding to sleep or pretending to work by using his tools as a stand to sleep), but later stories changed it to want a nap even during fun activities like playing ball or having a party.
  • Heavy Sleeper
  • Lazy Bum
  • The Slacker: He doesn't really do much of anything in the village, and the times he is called to do something he usually ends up either sleeping on the job or making excuses in order to not have to do it. Could have become a Professional Slacker, but that would take far too much effort.
  • Sleepyhead: Of the Cloudcuckoolander variety; for the most part he sees nothing wrong with dozing off at all times.

Liar Smurf (Schtroumpf Menteur)

The village gossip, who tends to make up most of the gossip he spreads. Appears only in the comic book.

Lucky Smurf (Schtroumpf Chançard)

Appears only in the comic books. After watching humans, he introduces gambling to the village and becomes a compulsive gambler.

  • The Gambling Addict: Oh yeah.
  • Ironic Nickname: He is very unlucky at gambling — though this is partly the fault of his addiction, as he'll make bets that are impossible for him to win just so that others will agree to the bet.

Mariner Smurf (Marinier)/Submariner Smurf (Schtroumpf Sous-marinier)/Marco Smurf (Schtroumpf Marco)
Voiced by: Rob Paulsen - The Smurfs cartoon show

A Smurf who used a submarine at first, but then changed his mind and became a boat-sailing mariner. He goes out to sea to get the Smurfs spices. His nickname was changed to Marco Smurf in the Animated Adaptation.

Miller Smurf (Schtroumpf Meunier)

The village miller, easily recognizable by his striped hat, dark blue shirt, and wooden clogs. Appears only in the comics.

Miner Smurf (Schtroumpf Mineur)
Voiced by: Alan Young - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village spelunker, who spends much of his time mining for useful metals. He was the one who discovered coal, which certainly helped the Smurf village during the cold winters.

  • Dug Too Deep: A variant of this happens at one point, when Miner (aided by an unwitting Clumsy) discovers an underground civilization of gnomes who ended up taking the Smurfs as slaves. Luckily the gnomes end up being Good All Along, only taking the Smurfs because they are responsible for keeping the Earth's core hot, have worked themselves to exhaustion and are desperate for a break. A few convenient inventions by Handy solves the problem, and gnomes and Smurfs part in friendship.
  • Scotireland: Miner Smurf is spoken of as having either an Irish or a Scottish accent. Not surprising, as he was voiced by the same guy who did Scrooge McDuck.
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: He's struck gold a couple of times, but never saw any use for it.

Narrator Smurf (Schtroumpf Narrateur)

Appears only in the live-action movie.

Natural Smurf/Nat Smurfling (Schtroumpf Nature)
Voiced by: Charlie Adler - The Smurfs cartoon show

A Smurf with an affinity for nature, and particularly animals. He's one of three Smurfs who de-ages to Smurfling age, though unlike Snappy and Slouchy he had already made several appearances as an adult Smurf in earlier stories.

Nobody Smurf/Somebody Smurf

A Smurf with no distinct character traits whatsoever. Tired of being a "Nobody," he went looking for a character trait that could give him a new name, but discovered that his true talent was being indistinct, after which he changed his name to "Somebody Smurf." Appeared only in the cartoon show.

Nosey Smurf (Schtroumpf Curieux)
Voiced by: Paul Winchell [Imposter], Unknown Voice Actor [real] - The Smurfs cartoon show

An extremely curious Smurf who wants to know everything about everyone and everything, frequently getting into trouble because he noses around things that are none of his business.

  • Curiosity Is a Crapshoot: Papa Smurf even tells the Smurfs that there's nothing wrong with being curious, but that Nosey simply takes his curiosity too far.

Nurse Smurf (Schtroumpf Infirmier)

Appears twice in the comic books, and can also be seen (though not called by name) in The Smurfs and the Magic Flute, patching up Clumsy Smurf. It's possible that he's Doctor Smurf's assistant, or even Doctor Smurf himself operating under a different name.

Owner Smurf (Schtroumpf Propriétaire)

A Smurf who gets a special house and gets convinced that everybody is jealous of it, so he becomes very adamant about his private property. Only appears in the comic books.

Painter Smurf/Artist Smurf (Schtroumpf Peintre)
Voiced by: Bill Callaway - The Smurfs cartoon show

A true-blue artist, Painter is constantly seen obsessing over his latest masteurpiesa — usually a painting, but he also works with sculpture and other visual arts. He's usually seen wearing a red jacket and a black tie, with a hat looking vaguely like a beret. In the cartoon series he speaks in an outrageous French accent.

  • Always Camp: He's a temperamental artist with a French accent. Of course he's this trope.
  • Can't Take Criticism: Particularly from Brainy when it comes to his work. In one episode, Painter can't take that Brainy won't make any criticisms concerning his work when Brainy's essence has been sapped away.
  • Composite Character: He is combined with Sculptor Smurf in the cartoon show and the live-action movie.
  • Everything Sounds Smurfier In French

Paleontologist Smurf (Schtroumpf Paléontologue)

A Smurf who is a paleontologist. He appears only in the comic books.

Panicky Smurf (Schtroumpf Panique)

Party Planner Smurf
Voiced by: Kevin Lee - The Smurfs 2

Passive-Agressive Smurf
Voiced by: Jimmy Kimmel - The Smurfs 2

Like Complimentary Smurf, he is mentioned, but not actually seen, in the first live-action movie — though he does appear in the sequel. Apparently, "he's always so nice, but when he leaves, you feel bad." The name is most likely a joke on the naming conventions of Smurfs.

Poet Smurf (Schtroumpf Poète)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village poet; a kindly and sensitive soul who's so fond of poetry that he'll sometimes speak in rhyme even in casual conversation.

Postman Smurf (Schtroumpf Facteur)

Appears only in the comics — first for a brief one-page gag, then in an extended role in the German magazine, where he curiously enough comes with mail from another Smurf village — the only time in any continuity where it's directly stated that there is more than one Smurf village.

Potter Smurf (Schtroumpf Potier)

Appears only in the comic books in minor roles, digging for clay (in other Smurfs' gardens, without asking for permission) in one story and trying to fill in for the absent Baker Smurf (with limited success) in another. His job is to make clay pots, jars, bowls and plates.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Seems to have traces of this, in that he can't begin to see why other Smurfs would have a problem with him digging up their gardens when that's where the best clay is.

Pushover Smurf (Schtroumpf Bonasse)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor - The Smurfs cartoon show

A Smurf who just can't find it in himself to say no to anyone, no matter what they ask him to do. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

Reporter Smurf (Schtroumpf Reporter)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor - The Smurfs cartoon show

Reporter, writer and editor of the village newspaper, always after the latest "sensational" news.

Reveler Smurf/Festive Smurf (Schtroumpf Fèteur)
Voiced by: (possibly) Jacques Marin [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute

A Smurf who is always eager to have a party, even more than any other Smurf. He briefly appears in two albums, and also appears in the French version of the The Smurfs and the Magic Flute Animated Adaptation, though the United States English dub changes him with Actor Smurf (see Timid Smurf, below).

Scaredy Smurf (Schtroumpf Peureux)
Voiced by: Alan Young - The Smurfs cartoon show

The world's most cowardly Smurf; he's afraid of everything. May or may not be the same character as Panicky Smurf from the live-action movie.

Sculptor Smurf (Schtroumpf Tailleur/Schtroumpf Sculpteur)

Appears only in the comic books, as his role in the Animated Adaptation and the live-action movie series is taken over by Painter.

Showoff Smurf (Schtroumpf Frimeur)

A Smurf who likes to show off his possessions. He appears only in the comic books.

Sloppy Smurf/Smelly Smurf (Schtroumpf Sale)/Stinky Smurf (Schtroumpf Puant)
Voiced by: Marshall Efron - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village garbage collector, with a passion for collecting really smelly things. He has a pet fly named Fly.

Slouchy Smurf/Slouchy Smurfling (Schtroumpf Molasson)
Voiced by: Noelle North - The Smurfs cartoon show

A laid-back and relaxed Smurf, most likely to be found leaning against something with his hands in his pockets, or just off calmly doing his own thing while the others are running around. Along with Nat and Snappy, he is de-aged in Season 5 and becomes a Smurfling again.

Smooth Smurf
Voiced by: Shaquille O'Neal - The Smurfs 2

Snappy Smurf/Snappy Smurfling (Schtroumpf Colérique)
Voiced by: Pat Musick - The Smurfs cartoon show

A rambunctious and energetic Smurf with a big temper, traits which are only exaggerated when he along with Nat and Slouchy is de-aged to Smurfling age in the comic "The Smurflings" and in Season 5 of the cartoon.

Sneezy Smurf (Schtroumpf Frileux)/Sickly Smurf/Chilly Smurf
Voiced by: Don Messick - The Smurfs cartoon show

Always wears earmuffs and a scarf, and always shivering and sneezing — sometimes because he has a cold and sometimes due to severe allergies.

Social Smurf (Schtroumpf Réseau)
Voiced by: Mario Lopez - The Smurfs 2

A Smurf who is a web blogger. He is set to appear in The Smurfs 2.

Suspicious Smurf (Schtroumpf Mefiant)

Sweepy Smurf (Schtroumpf Ramoneur)
Voiced by: Don Messick - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village chimney-sweeper; a cheerful and happy-go-lucky, if rather dirty and sooty, Smurf.

Tailor Smurf (Schtroumpf Tailleur)
Voiced by: Kip King - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village tailor. The main reason for the Smurfs' Limited Wardrobe, as he respects "the classic look" too much to ever agree to make any different kinds of clothes. He does allow the Smurflings to make their own set of clothes when his standard style doesn't suit them, but only under protest.

  • Always Camp: He sure has an artistic temperament for someone who never wants to do anything remotely different.

Timber Smurf/Lumberjack Smurf (Schtroumpf Bûcheron)
Voiced by: Bernard Erhard - The Smurfs cartoon show

The village lumberjack, who according to the other Smurfs spends more time talking to the trees than cutting them down. Named Lumberjack Smurf in the comics and Timber Smurf in the cartoon.

  • Big Eater: But then, "you can't smurf a good day's work on an empty stomach."
  • Friend to All Living Things: He's very fond of trees, never cutting one down before its time — and when he does cut it down he salutes and honors it, and makes sure to plant a new sapling in its place. He's also a friend to all woodland creatures, often sharing his camp with them when camping out.
  • Nice Guy: Basically, he's Hefty, if Hefty had been more in touch with his own softer side.

Timid Smurf/Actor Smurf (Schtroumpf Timide)
Voiced by: Unknown Voice Actor [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Unknown Voice Actor - The Smurfs cartoon show

Despite his nickname, he's more sad than timid, due to not having a pet, until he meets the dragon Grumpf. The cartoon version of the character eventually becomes Actor Smurf.

  • Identity Impersonator: In "All The Smurf's A Stage".
  • Meaningful Rename: Gets this in the cartoon show when he proves that he has acting talent in "All The Smurf's A Stage".
  • Mirror Routine: Pulls this on Brainy in the episode "All The Smurf's A Stage".
  • A Smurf And His Dragon: It's even in the title of the story (3rd story of the album "The Strange Awakening of Lazy Smurf"), save for "the" instead of "a"

Tracker Smurf (Schtroumpf Traqueur)
Voiced by: Henry Polic II - The Smurfs cartoon show

An expert woodsman and tracker, with a highly-developed sense of smell. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

Traveling Smurf (Schtroumpf pas comme les autres/Schtroumpf Voyageur)
A Smurf who was sad with the life at the Smurf Village and wanted to travel.

Tuffy/Toughy Smurf (Schtroumpf Batailleur)
Voiced by: Pat Fraley - The Smurfs cartoon show

He wants to be Hefty Smurf so badly, but doesn't quite have the strength to back it up — not that this stops him from jumping headfirst into danger and challenging everyone he meets to fisticuffs. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

Vanity Smurf (Schtroumpf Coquet)
Voiced by: Alan Oppenheimer - The Smurfs cartoon show

The world's most handsome Smurf; at least if you ask him. He's easily identified by the flower he's stuck in his hat and the handheld mirror he usually carries around so that he can look at himself whenever he wants.

  • Ambiguously Gay: Next to the Smurfette Principle and the alleged Communist propaganda, Vanity's sexuality is one of the most joked-about aspects of the franchise.
  • Camp Straight: Well, like the other Smurfs, he's in love with Smurfette.
  • Informed Attractiveness: Sees himself as the most handsome Smurf, but without the flower that appeared in his hat from the cartoon series onward, he's identical to all the others, at least to human eyes.
  • Narcissist
  • Oh My Gods!: "Great Smurf in heaven" in The Smurfs 2.
  • Vanity Is Feminine: No pun intended, but of course the most narcissistic smurf would be the one whose sexuality is the most often questioned.

Weakling Smurf (Schtroumpf Chétif)
Voiced by: (possibly) Alan Young - The Smurfs cartoon show

Just like the name implies, a weakling. Though he's certainly willing to try his best and wants to do Big Things, his actual abilities are... somewhat lacking.

  • Did Not Get the Girl: Or at least, did not get the kiss from Smurfette at the end of "The Olympic Smurfs".
  • Magic Feather: In "The Olympic Smurfs" Papa Smurf gives him a reddish doping jelly to put on his nose, in order to help him compete in the Olympic Games. When he eventually wins, he is about to confess his cheating, but it turns out that the substance was only raspberry jelly, and that Weakling Smurf owes his victory only to his newly-acquired self-confidence.
    • The same Magic Feather element also appears in the cartoon episode "A Little Smurf Confidence", which also features Weakling.

Weather Smurf (Schtroumpf Météo)

The meteorologist for the Smurf newspaper, whose job it is to predict the weather — though his methods of doing so are rather bizarre. Only appears in the comic books, as his function in the cartoon is taken over by Tracker Smurf (who simply smells the weather changing). "Weather Smurf" is probably not his actual name, as his identity seems unknown to the other Smurfs.

  • Cloudcuckoolander: He's either this or a hack, basing his weather predictions on whether his pet frog will climb up or down a ladder.

Weepy Smurf (Schtroumpf Pleureur)
Voiced by: Mona Marshall, Unknown Voice Actor - The Smurfs cartoon show

The Smurf who cries and sobs about everything. To Weepy Smurf, life is one huge tragedy no matter what happens — if bad things happen, that's horribly sad, but if good things happen, that's sad too because they won't last.

Wooly Smurf
Voiced by: Dick Gautier - The Smurfs cartoon show

The Smurf responsible for shearing sheep to get the wool the Smurfs need to make their clothes with. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

  • Canon Foreigner
  • Nice Hat: He normally dresses like an ordinary Smurf, but the one night of year when he's called upon to go and fetch wool, he puts on a woolen cowboy version of a Smurf hat.

Reflection Smurf/Hundredth Smurf (Le Centième Schtroumpf)
Voiced by: Alan Oppenheimer - The Smurfs cartoon show

In the Smurfs story "The Hundredth Smurf", Vanity Smurf's mirror is struck by lightning, which brings his reflection to life. The reflection speaks backwards and does everything Vanity Smurf does, but in reverse (lifting the right arm when Vanity lifts the left, for instance). After he causes chaos in the village by his opposite nature, the reflection decides to return to the mirror, but he goes through it instead, and comes out a regular Smurf.

  • Mirror Self: Vanity Smurf's reflection, brought to life by a lightning.

     Additional Smurfs 
Smurfette (La Schtroumpfette)
Voiced by: Lucille Bliss - The Smurfs cartoon show
Lisa Young - Smurf Racer Video Game

Originally the only female Smurf in the village, created by Gargamel as a weapon against the Smurfs and changed into a real Smurf by Papa Smurf.

  • Action Girl: Promoted to this in the live-action movie.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the original story, Smurfette was never evil; her goal was to unintentionally cause the Smurfs to fight among themselves due to her mere presence, and Papa Smurf simply gave her the plastic surgery to stop the Smurfs from mocking her note . The cartoon and other adaptations make Smurfette be a willing agent for Gargamel (even if coerced by fear) and her transformation is a consequence of being magically turned into a "true Smurf".
  • Ascended Extra: At the end of her first comic appearance, she left the village and became an incidental character. The cartoon show made her into a regular, and the comics followed starting from "The Baby Smurf".
    • Of course, some post-Peyo comic book stories have Smurfette appear mostly in cameo, such as The Jewel Smurfer.
  • Badass Adorable: See Action Girl above.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness
  • Becoming the Mask
  • Born as an Adult
  • Catch Phrase: In the cartoon, it's "Boo-hoo." She cries a lot, and literally says "Boo-hoo" while doing so.
  • The Chick
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Causes this reaction with her fellow Smurfs.
  • Distressed Damsel: Rarely is there an episode where Smurfette does NOT need someone else to rescue her. Mostly averted in the live-action movie.
  • Dude Magnet
  • Dumb Blonde: The comic version is an inversion of the trope, as she had the stereotypical Dumb Blonde personality as a brunette, and after becoming blonde gets a boost in common sense.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes
  • Eye Awaken: Pulls this in The Smurfs 2 when she was first created as a Naughty by Gargamel.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: The cartoon version originally was an evil female smurf created by Gargamel, she started as a brunette, but was turned into a blonde when she became good.
  • Happily Adopted: To Papa Smurf in the film series.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Smurfette when she was first created goes through this when she is transformed into a real Smurf through magic in the cartoon show by Papa Smurf.
  • Hello, Nurse!: Smurfette, after her magical makeover in the cartoon show, elicits this response in her fellow Smurfs. And in a single-page comic book gag, she actually became a nurse.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Even Harmony Smurf notices how bad she sings.
  • Insubstantial Ingredients: The original comics and the Animated Adaptation each feature their own formula for her creation, but both include elements of the trope:
    • Comicbook: The clay statue was given life by being dipped in a formula made from a pinch of coquetry, a good layer of bias, three crocodile tears, a lizard brain, viper tongue powder, one carat of simpathy, a handful of wrath, one finger of lies, a thimble of gluttony, a pint of bad faith, a pinch of inconscience, a bit of sentimentality, a measure of silliness and a measure of cunning, much ingenuity and stubbornness, and a candle that has burned at both ends.
    • Cartoon: She was magically created from blue clay, sugar and spice but nothing nice, crocodile tears, half a pack of lies, a chatter of a magpie, and the hardest stone for her heart.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Wears multiple copies of the same dress, yet treats them as though they were different outfits.
  • Magic Plastic Surgery: Or make that "plastic smurfery", which is the explanation in the original English translation of the story "The Smurfette" for how the title character was changed from her original appearance into a real Smurf.
  • Mama Bear: Around Baby Smurf.
  • Rule 34: She is the one of the few female Smurfs. Even the Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy mock this. Technically, there are three female Smurfs and one robotic one, but most people only remember her.
  • Skip of Innocence: In the comic books, she goes for walks in the forest where she does this.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Trope Namer
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Sassette's Tomboy.
  • Traumatic Haircut: In The Smurfs 2, her hair gets cut off to a bob by Gargamel. She makes it appear that she went through this in the cartoon episode "Smurfette's Golden Tresses".
  • The Vamp: She was this before her Heel-Face Turn
  • Younger than They Look: Smurfette is only a few years old despite looking like a young adult female Smurf.

Baby Smurf (Bébé Schtroumpf)
Voiced by: Paul Winchell, Julie McWhirter-Dees - The Smurfs cartoon show

Brought to the Smurf village by stork on the night of the blue moon, and has since then been the darling of all the Smurfs.

  • Baby Talk: In the comics, he does eventually learn to talk but still, due to his young age, has a very limited vocabulary (and also a smaller role overall). In the cartoon, he mostly just giggles and coos — his first word, to the surprise of the Smurfs, is "Gargamel."
  • Cheerful Child: Usually.
  • Child Mage: In the animated series he occasionally displays curious magical powers, though never when anyone else is watching.
  • Fearless Infant: Occasionally invokes the trope, though is seldom in any real danger.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Immune, it seems, to magic designed to make people angry, evil, or even emotionless.
  • Morality Pet: To several characters, including Grouchy and Jokey, who will spare him their usual attitudes and pranks. note  Averted, however, with Gargamel, who is just as nasty to Baby as he is to the other Smurfs.

Sassette (Sassette)
Voiced by: Julie McWhirter-Dees - The Smurfs cartoon show

The second female Smurf created after Smurfette.

Clockwork Smurf (Schtroumpf Robot/Mécanique)
Voiced by: Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

A wooden robotic Smurf created by Handy Smurf.

  • Clockwork Creature
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: Part of his origin story in the cartoon show, when Brainy's accident gave him life and sentience.
  • Nice Hat: In the comic books, the hat is used to dispense liquid such as sarsaparilla soup. Gargamel took advantage of this and made a fake Clockwork Smurf with a hat that dispensed a soup that turned the Smurfs into mutants.
    • Clockwork in the comic book story was a character swap for the Benco chocolate milk bottle that appeared in a multi-part story ad.
  • The Unintelligible: Clockwork Smurf can only speak in machine squeaks in the cartoon show, whereas in the comic books he was able to speak in Smurf language right from the start.

Clockwork Smurfette (Schtroumpfette Robot/Mecanique)
Voiced by: (possibly) Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

A Distaff Counterpart to Clockwork Smurf that was created by Handy as a female companion. Appears only in the Animated Adaptation.

     Allies 

The King
Voiced by: Georges Pradez [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Bob Holt - The Smurfs cartoon show

The benevolent, white-bearded ruler of the kingdom and also the king that Johan and Peewit serve under, he is one of the few humans who has befriended the Smurfs. He's not particularly strong-willed or authoritative, but he has a good heart and generally wants the best for his subjects.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Like Johan, he has them in the comics (though he gets eye-whites if the expression demands it, for example if he's surprised or shocked), and in The Smurfs and the Magic Flute but in the cartoon he has normal cartoon eyes.
  • Distressed Dude: Whenever he plays a big role in the stories, it's most often as this.
  • The Good King: Not a particularly competent one, perhaps, but nobody can deny that he means well.
  • The Load: In the comic story Le pays maudit, later adapted into the cartoon episode The Cursed Country, the bored King insists on joining Johan and Peewit on their journey to free the Smurfs, and quickly proves to be a terrible Load, because life when out on adventure is very different from the luxurious castle life he's used to.
  • No Name Given: He's only ever called "The King" or "Your Majesty," his actual name is never mentioned.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He does bluster a bit, particularly in the comics — but considering that he's always willing to hear people out, not to mention puts up with everything Peewit puts him through, he definitely fits this trope.

Princess Savina
Voiced by: Jennifer Darling - The Smurfs cartoon show

A not-so-proper princess, niece of the King and cousin of King Gerard, who would much rather join in on Johan and Peewit's many adventures than be stuck at the palace under the watchful eyes of her governess, Dame Barbara.

  • Action Girl: She really wants to be one, but as her governess forbids her from doing anything "improper" she doesn't get many chances to.
  • Ascended Extra: She's not the most major of characters in either comic or cartoon, but she still has a notably larger role in the cartoon, where she lives in the castle with her uncle and is a recurring character — in the comic, she really only appears once, in the role of Distressed Damsel, as she is kidnapped while on her way to visit the King for a few days.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Like uncle, like niece. Once again, in the cartoon show she has normal cartoon eyes.
  • Distressed Damsel: Plays this in some episodes, even if she's usually resourceful enough to at least try to save herself.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Probably the main reason why she has a larger role in the cartoon.
  • Fiery Redhead: Not the most fiery of redheads, but still she's got spunk. This really only applies to her in the cartoon, though, since her comic counterpart is less spirited and only has red hair on the cover (in the internal art, she's blonde).
  • Rebellious Princess: Though her rebellion is usually very low-key and kept hidden from Dame Barbara.

Johan/John
Voiced by: William Coryn [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute United States’ English dub
Michael Bell - The Smurfs cartoon show

The King's teenage squire (later knight) and best friend to Peewit, and one of the humans who have befriended the Smurfs. Many of the Smurfs and humans look up to him as a person to never do wrong.

Peewit/William (Pirlouit)
Voiced by: Michel Modo [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Cam Clarke [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute
Frank Welker - The Smurfs cartoon show

The small-sized court jester who is usually Sir Johan's Sidekick, though in later seasons he made many solo appearances without Johan, interacting with the Smurfs and their other friends/enemies. Apart from Gargamel and Scruple, he's the human character who appears on the show the most.

  • Big Eater: He's one of the few characters who can match Greedy Smurf for appetite.
  • Catch Phrase: "Later, always later!" whenever Johan says they'll do something later.
  • Cowardly Lion: At first glance he can come across as a Lovable Coward with Miles Gloriosus tendencies, but he'll step out without fail and perform brave feats if his friends are in trouble.
  • Dreadful Musician
  • Giftedly Bad: Most notably at music, but the few times he tries his hand at magic his failures tend to be truly spectacular — not that this ever stops him from thinking of himself as talented and brilliant.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Johan.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: His singing "The Ballad Of Friendship" in The Smurfs and the Magic Flute is so bad that it brings on the rain. He also gets constantly kicked off the stage by the minstrels playing for The King in the same movie.
  • I Want My Mommy: A frequent crier of this in the cartoon series.
  • Large Ham: Literally turned himself one in “Johan’s Army.”
  • Meaningful Name: Phonetically, it matches the character.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: His name is usually pronounced Pee-Wee despite its spelling.
  • Odd Friendship: With Johan.
  • Plucky Comic Relief
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: In Johan and Peewit. While Johan is supposed to be the hero of the stories, they focus more on Peewit's antics. This is reflected and exaggerated in the cartoon show, where Johan all but vanished in later seasons, but Peewit still appeared every now and then — and he usually got a starring role when he did.

Biquette/Annie

Peewit's pet goat and trusty riding animal, Named "Biquette" in the comics and cartoon, and "Annie" in the cartoon version of The Smurfs and the Magic Flute. She's very loyal to Peewit and always tries to protect him, but she's also highly temperamental and will think nothing of attacking and headbutting those who annoy her.

Oliver
Voiced by: Serge Nadaud [Original French version]; Unknown Voice Actor [United Kingdom English dub]; Unknown Voice Actor [United States English dub] - The Smurfs and the Magic Flute

Homnibus' young helper. Despite frequently appearing along with his master in Johan and Peewit stories, his only appearance in a Smurfs story so far has been "The Finance Smurf".

Gargamel
Voiced by: Paul Winchell - The Smurfs cartoon show
Jesse Lachapelle - Smurf Racer Video Game
André Sogliuzzo - The Smurfs 2 Video Game
Played by: Hank Azaria - The Smurfs movie & The Smurfs 2

The main villain of the Smurfs.

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: On a small level, the live-action version has a full set of teeth compared to his comic book and animated counterparts.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the Live-Action films, he's a lot more threatening and dangerous compared to the comics and cartoon series.
  • Angry Fist-Shake: Expect Gargamel to give one to the Smurfs when his plans fail.
  • Arch-Enemy
  • Beard of Evil: Attempts to grow one with a hair tonic in one episode. He only manages to wear a fake Beard of Evil when passing himself off as another wizard in order to get Hogatha's bird call.
  • The Cameo: In a few comic book stories such as The Smurfs And The Howlibird and The Baby Smurf.
  • Catch Phrase: In the comics: "I'll get my revenge!" In the cartoons: "I'll get you, I'll get all of you if that's the last thing I ever do!"
  • Enemy Mine: Occasionally helps the Smurfs whenever there's a threat to both their existences, such as in The Gambler Smurfs when a gambling count wants to turn the Smurf Forest into his own gaming complex.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Even more so in the live-action movie.
  • Evil Laugh: What's Gargamel without this?
  • Evil Sorcerer: Constantly referred to as such, though he's just as much of an alchemist.
  • Evil Tastes Good: Gargamel goes on about how delicious Smurfs must be despite never actually eating one.
  • Evil Wears Black
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Gargamel's plans are always doomed to fail.
  • Final Boss: In The Smurfs (1994) and The Smurfs 2.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: In A Christmas Carol.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Gargamel usually gets done in by the very schemes he uses against the Smurfs.
  • I Lied: He isn't afraid to break promises that he has no intention of ever keeping.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Emphasis on "ineffectual".
  • It's Personal: Gargamel originally wanted to capture Smurfs so that he could use them to turn base metals into gold, or eat them, but time and time again with defeat means that he's now mainly after Revenge — and if he can fill his stomach or get rich by doing so, so much the better.
  • I Want My Mommy: Does this a few times in the cartoons.
  • Laughably Evil
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Inversion: He does not like the fact that Sassette (a second female Smurf created using his Smurfette formula) calls him "Pappy Gargamel" in the cartoon show. Though in the live-action movie series, he does try to sway Smurfette's heart to his side by calling her "his daughter".
  • Oh My Gods!: Invokes the name of Beelzebub or the devil a few times.
  • Save the Villain: Sometimes the Smurfs have to save him from danger or from his own villainy.
  • Scary Teeth: Mostly appears with only one top tooth in the comic books and the cartoon show; The Legend Of Smurfy Hollow gives us a nice close-up view of a few more teeth.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: In The Smurfs 2.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Mild form, but in later comics (specially post-Peyo) he eventually shows up in just about every single story, usually accompanied by Azrael — even stories where they have no role to play and don't fit within the plot. It's actually Lampshaded in the comic book version of The Baby Smurf, where they show up on one page to attack one of the Smurfs out looking for Grouchy and Baby — only to be shooed off by the annoyed Smurf who tells them that there's no room for them in this story.
  • Taken for Granite: Was turned into a statue along with his cat in one episode, but Papa Smurf restored him to normal.
  • The Unfought: In Smurf: Rescue In Gargamel's Castle, where he actually doesn't appear.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Despite many a Save the Villain moment by the Smurfs, he still never returns the favor and is still plotting his revenge against them.
  • Villain Song: Has one that he sings on occasion, plus a few in certain episodes like "The Blue Plague" song that is based on a similar villain song from Yogi's First Christmas.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: In The Smurfs 2.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Even Baby Smurf is not immune to Gargamel's evil plans when it suits him.

Azrael

Voiced by: Don Messick - The Smurfs cartoon show
Portrayed by: Mr. Krinkle - The Smurfs movie & The Smurfs 2

Gargamel's scruffy and much put-down-upon cat.

  • Ambiguous Gender: In the comics, at least. The cartoon on several occasions distinctly refers to the cat as male — not that this has stopped fans from speculating. Averted in the Mexican Spanish dub, as Azrael is always addressed as male.
  • Cats Are Mean: He's just as gung-ho about catching Smurfs as Gargamel is, and is often seen licking his chops hungrily whenever Smurfs are mentioned.
  • Ear Notch: In the live-action movie, it is even shown how he gets it.
  • Right-Hand Cat
  • Silent Snarker: Since he's a cat, he can't actually speak — but in both cartoon and live-action movie his meows are so speech-like that it's often easy to guess from his tone exactly what he's saying, and what he's saying is quite often something degradatory about Gargamel.

Scruple
Voiced by: Brenda Vaccaro - The Smurfs cartoon show

Gargamel's apprentice, a Bratty Half-Pint who was more or less dumped onto his uncle after he was kicked out of sorcerer's school for causing trouble with the teachers. He helps Gargamel out with his plans, though is often less than enthusiastic about it.
  • Bratty Half-Pint
  • Captain Ersatz: Would have had one in Jeanty from the comic book story "A Child Among The Smurfs", but he changed his mind.
  • Cross Dressing Voice: Brenda Vaccaro in the cartoon show.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Like Azrael, he doesn't think much of Gargamel's intelligence. Unlike Azrael, he can clearly let Gargamel know in exact words what he thinks.
  • Genre Savvy: He quickly catches on to the fact that Gargamel's plans never work as they should, and often takes precautions for that.
  • Ironic Name: Despite being called Scruple, he doesn't appear to have any.
  • The Nicknamer: He always calls Gargamel "Gargie," much to the latter's annoyance.

Hogatha

Voiced by: Janet Waldo - The Smurfs cartoon show

An evil witch, obsessed with her looks despite being far from beautiful.

Lord Balthazar

Voiced by: Keene Curtis - The Smurfs cartoon show

Gargamel's godfather in the cartoon series.
  • Abusive Parents: He is the godfather of Gargamel. Gargamel being afraid of him is an indicator their relationship is not a good one. And when both characters are on screen, Balthazar is almost always belittling Gargamel.
  • Beard of Evil: Or to be more precise, Chin Spike Of Evil.
  • Bigger Bad: Balthazar seems to be more competent and threatening than Gargamel, to the point the latter shivers when mentioning Balthazar's name.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Balthazar isn't afraid to cross some moral boundaries with what he wants to do with the Smurfs that would give his godson Gargamel some pause in crossing.
  • High Collar of Doom
  • I Lied: He isn't afraid to break promises that he has no intention of ever keeping.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His evil plans appear to be much more of a threat to the Smurfs than Gargamel's. In his first appearance, he shot a little duckling Smurfette adopted with his blunderbuss. If it wasn't for the help of Mother Nature, said duckling would have died.
  • Mage Marksman: He isn't above using weapons such as muskets and crossbows in addition to magic against the Smurfs if it suits his purpose.

Chlorhydris

Voiced by: Amanda McBroom - The Smurfs cartoon show

An evil witch, who mostly wants to make the world as miserable as she is.

  • Despair Event Horizon: The origin of her behavior was shown in "Chlorhydris' Lost Love", where the wizard she intended to marry never showed up at the altar on her wedding night.
  • High Collar of Doom
  • Meaningful Name: Reverse the two main parts of the word and you'll see that it's a play on the term "hydrochloric acid", which is a corrosive.

Matthew McCreep/Oilycreep (Torchesac)

Vexy

A female Naughty created by Gargamel.

Hackus

Voiced by: J.B. Smoove - The Smurfs 2

A male Naughty created by Gargamel.

  • Ambiguous Disorder: Hackus shows signs of being mentally challenged like incoherent speech, repetitively licking puddle water, randomly hugging people and doesn’t comprehend the fact Gargamel called him a “moron” when picking who should go and kidnap Smurfette. Not sure if having his tongue sticking out most the time is anything.
  • Born as an Adult
  • The Cameo: In The Legend Of Smurfy Hollow.
  • Heel-Face Turn
  • Third-Person Person
  • Toilet Humor: Shown in one of the trailers to go spazzy like the Tazmanian Devil before he lets out a burp.
