Return to Recap: The Smurfs.
An Animated Adaptation of The Smurfs comic book story "The Hunger Of The Smurfs".In the story, the Smurfs prepare themselves for winter by storing up as much food as they can before the snow falls. By the following day, the Smurfs start to enjoy the first day of winter when the storehouse suddenly catches on fire. The Smurfs try to get water from the river to put out the fire, but the water ends up turning to ice by the time they try throwing it at the fire. Soon the storehouse is burned down, and with it all the food that's been stored up for winter. Papa Smurf realizes that they will have to evacuate the village and find someplace else where they could find food and shelter for the winter.On their journey out into the snowy wilderness, the Smurfs see a castle up ahead and check to see if there's anybody in it. As they enter the place, the castle seems to be haunted, but the Smurfs soon discover that its only resident, Mr. Poppery, has simply made it appear to be haunted to bring attention to the fact that something in the castle has been stealing his treasure and whatever food was left in the castle. The thief turns out to be a mouse who is also hungry. After the Smurfs find the stolen treasure, Mr. Poppery rewards the Smurfs with enough food that will last them all winter while he and his new pet mouse end up sharing the food that they now have.
