The Smurfs first appeared in 1958 in a Belgian comic strip. Then known as 'stroumpf', they were supporting characters, but proved popular and soon had their own comic.
In 1977, Father Abraham released chart-topping 'Smurf Song' and in 1981, Hanna Barbera's Smurf cartoons hit American TV. A vast range of collectables was released including mugs and houses. Their mushroom-shaped houses in the forest were even transported to Hollywood with live-action amimated The Smurfs released in 2011, followed by The Smurfs 2 in 2013.
