Pierre Culliford (June 25, 1928 – December 24, 1992), known as Peyo, was a Belgian comics artist, perhaps best known for the creation of The Smurfs (Les Schtroumfs). He created other comic book series, but they were all overshadowed in popularity by the little blue men, especially the series they originated in.
His works include:
- Johan and Peewit
- The Smurfs
- Benoit Brisefer (also known as Steven Strong and Benny Breakiron)
- Poussy (Pussycat in English)
