Funny: The Smurfs

Funny moments for the Belgian Comics:

  • In "The Flying Smurf", the first (failed) try of the eponymous Smurf to fly is to steal a hen's feathers to make himself wings. Throughout the story, a Smurf appears seeking for his hen. Near the end, the Smurf finds the hen and says "There is it! That's my...! No, mine had feathers."
  • In "The Smurf King", when the King's Smurfs are searching for the rebels, it's suggested to dig holes to make the rebels fall in them. After digging a hole, one Smurf goes to hide and wait, to fall inside the hole other Smurf had dig, so that Smurf goes to protest for ruining his trap and falls in the hole dug by other Smurf, and so on.
  • In "The Egg and The Smurfs", one Smurf (possiby an unnamed Early-Bird Cameo of Flighty Smurf) is undecided to what to wish to the egg, and the one waiting behind him tells "if you can't decide, then go to hell". Cue the Smurf surrounded by flames and close to a goat-legged being.
    • And when Papa Smurf undoes all the wishes, he re-appears with a pitchfork in his hand, looking astonished and telling the others: "You won't believe where I have been."
  • In "The Smurfs and the Howlibird", when the Smurfs are repairing a crossbow to use against the Howlibird, Papa Smurf needs a nail and calls a Smurf. When he notices he called Clumsy Smurf (who always brings the wrong thing when asked), Papa Smurf is Genre Savvy enough to know that if he asks for a nail, Clumsy Smurf will bring him a screw, so he asks him for a screw... and Clumsy Smurf brings him a nut.
  • In "The Weather-Smurfing Machine,":
    • The bit where the weather house figures fight each other.
    • During their fight over the weather changing machine, Poet and Farmer are fighting with snow around them:
    Poet: Sun! Sun! Sun!
    Farmer: Rain! Rain! Rain!
    *both stop*
    Poet & Farmer: Snow!?
    • Brainy trying to open the umbrella only for it to stop raining just as he opens it. When he closes it, the rain starts again and Brainy can’t get the umbrella to open again.
  • In "Smurf Versus Smurf", when a North Smurf makes a divisory line between the halves of the village, he marks it inside the house of a Smurf. The poor Smurf must adapt to the idea of crossing the line (and changing his speech patterns accordingly) to do the most mundane tasks.
    • In the cartoon special "The Smurfic Games", a dividing line separating the east end of the village from the west end gets painted right over Clumsy.
  • In "The Smurflings", the de-aged Snappy Smurf passes close to Grouchy Smurf:
    Snappy Smurf: AND I HATE BIG SMURFS!
    Grouchy Smurf: Uh? but I haven't said anything yet!
    Snappy Smurf: But you were about to, weren't you? I could tell.
    Grouchy Smurf: How did he guess? (In thoughts) I hate Smurflings.
  • In "The Black Smurfs", one of the titular Black Smurfs painted himself blue to not get targeted with the cure... And gets promptly bitten by another Black Smurf trying to spread The Virus.

It's then when he asks if they can dance to it is when the spirits start throwing things at him. After one of them slams an oversized tuba on him goes running out asking for help.
    • Also, while three of the poltersmurfs are trashing Painter’s house, one is having a sword fight with Painter, but with paintbrushes:

    Season Eight 

    Season Nine 

Funny moments for the 2011 live-action adaptation:

  • The most humorous character by far in an otherwise Strictly Formula film must be Narrator Smurf, who is a literal Interactive Narrator — that is his actual job. In the Final Battle with Gargamel, he lampshaded the fact by declaring in his "announcer voice" that he cannot stop talking like this.
  • Gargamel, ensconced in Rikers, attempts to pull a Gandalf ploy by commanding a moth to bring him mighty eagles so that he might fly out of there. Shortly thereafter he's being menaced by some other prisoners when his ticket out returns... with a swarm of flies. For extra bonus funny, once he gets over the initial disappointment he doesn't seem to mind that much. Not to mention that it works.
  • Three words: "Are you dead?"
  • Gargamel talking to several people on the street about the Smurfs:
    Gargamel: Excuse me, have you seen any little blue men?
    Businessman on phone: Sure, what price are we talking about?
    Gargamel: You're selling them?
    Girl on phone: Yeah, I'm giving it to Lily.
    Gargamel: Who is Lily?
    Guy on phone: She's only the hottest girl in my apartment!
    Gargamel: What does the temperature of Lily have to do with Smurfs?
    • Later he asked a hobo (whom he identified as a "peasant") if he's seen little blue people:
    Hobo: They're everywhere!
    Gargamel: I knew it!
  • Gutsy Smurf doing the Marilyn Maneuver.
  • What might have been a disturbing moment when Patrick finally snaps turns into this:
    Patrick: "Stop saying 'Smurf' for everything! What does that even mean?! Smurf, smurf smurf smurfedy smurf smurf!"
    Smurfs: (gasp)
    Gutsy: There's no call for THAT kind of language!
  • The Smurfs' answer to Patrick's question on their names (were they named when they're born or at some point in their life based on their personalities): "Yes."
  • Pretty much all the moments involving Vanity.
    "Cut! CUT! It's a dance — not dominoes!"
  • Azrael meowing a clearly understandable "Oh, no!" when Gargamel announces he'll use teleporting magic on them at the beginning.
  • Gargamel stops Azrael from passing through the invisibility shroud near the Smurfs' village, because he doesn't know if it's safe. How does he check? Chucking Azrael in, of course.
