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 it is! That's my...! No, mine had feathers."
  • In "King Smurf", 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.
    • The King Smurf's commander comes up with the idea to simply toss his halberd and medal so the rebels thinks he is one of their own, with obvious results.
    Commander: Let me go! I'm your commander!
    Smurfs: Nice try. Our commander is Hefty Smurf.
    Commander: I'm Hefty Smurf!
    Smurfs: Prove it!
    [Hefty beats them all down]

    • 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.

  • In "Smurf Versus Smurf", when a Northern Smurf makes a dividing 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.

  • In "Smurf the Hero", Brainy, Hefty and Handy accidentally throw a fireworks at a bunch of bats. The funny comes from the footnote: "No bats were smurfed in the making of this panel".
  • When the Smurfs go into the forest to find Grouchy Smurf and Baby Smurf, one lone Smurf runs into Gargamel who's about to catch him. The Smurf angrily yells at Gargamel to leave him alone as they have enough problems and Gargamel isn't even involved in the story. Garmagel apologizes and leaves, until he realizes he's been fooled and return to catch the Smurf who was already gone.

    • Smurfette complaining about her laundry getting all wet because of the rain at the beginning of the episode. Clumsy decides to help her but slips on a puddle, getting mud all over her who she thanks sarcastically. Cue Brainy making a comment:
      Brainy: Now did you see that! Isn't that the smurfiest thing you ever-

  • Something similar happens in "Bewitched, Bothered, and Be-smurfed" when Smurfette is walking around with a locket that (unbeknownst to her) grants wishes. At one point, she visits a sick Greedy Smurf and, after leaving, wishes that he was "out of that bed and fit as a fiddle". The locket reacts appropriately, and suddenly a fiddle with legs and Greedy's hat and napkin runs out of Greedy's house screaming for Papa Smurf; playing music wildly all the while.

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.
  • Gargamels puppet show at the beginning of the movie. We can't tell you the entire thing but we'll give you a sample.
    Gargamel: "La la la la la la, sing a happy song. La la la la la la, this is so wrong."
  • Gargamel expresses surprise at Azrael being a male, for which Azrael snarls at him. How could he not have known his own cat's gender? note 
  • Gargamel and Azrael look for a laboratory in New York City, and try one out in a port-a-potty. They don't even last 15 seconds before they frantically burst out.
  • 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.
  • Gargamel asking several people on the street about the Smurfs, all of which are talking on their phones:
    Gargamel: You there, you there! Fancy pants! Have you seen any little blue men?
    Businessman: Absolutely, what price are we talking about?
    Gargamel: You're selling them?
    Young woman: Have you looked in the drawer, sweetie?
    Gargamel: Wait, what drawer?
    Young woman: In the kitchen, Lily.
    Gargamel: Who is Lily?
    Guy in plaid shirt: Are you kidding? She's like the hottest girl in my apartment!
    Gargamel: Please, please. Please, young woodsman. What does the temperature of this Lily have to do with the finding of Smurfs?
    Guy in plaid shirt: Take your meds, man. (walks away)
  • 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. He does it again with the portal to New York.
  • "Kiss my smurf!"
