Did you know Smurfs have been around for 50 years? News story with cool historical info here.

I can remember them being on Saturday morning cartoons in the early 80s–though I’ll admit the memories are hazy. This will soon be remedied–in February Smurfs: Season 1 will be released! I do the data entry for the children’s DVDs orders, though not the selections, and I threatened to order these even if my coworker doesn’t select them. I can’t be the only one excitedly awaiting the chance to add “smurf” back into my vocabulary as a catch all word.

And your Smurf trivia du jour? Without looking it up (or reading to the bottom of the news story)– what’s Gargamel’s cat’s name?
