a rarity for a mainstream cartoon

If you were past a certain age when THE SMURFS premiered in 1981, you may have liked the show but may have found it boring. In other words, you could've felt either way. If you grew up watching the show as a kid, you may still like it now as an adult, but you may wonder why you liked this show as a kid. In other words, regardless of what you thought as a kid, you could feel either way now. Little kids, though, will just love THE SMURFS. This cartoon was written and produced just for them. In the process they will be exposed to good lessons, such as caring, sharing, living and working together, disabilities, the value and reward of hard work, etc. A cartoon like this, which teaches life lessons to the very young, made by a mainstream animation studio like Hanna-Barbera and aired on a commercial network like NBC was always a rarity. This was especially true before the Children's Television Act of 1990 (the law which requires stations to air educational programming for children) got passed. It's also always been rare for a mainstream animation studio to produce a cartoon for preschoolers, or for a commercial network to air such a cartoon. Those things make THE SMURFS a double gem. The only thing to be potentially concerned about for children under 4 is that Gargamel might frighten them. Beyond that this show is a green light all the way.

Stupid show!

Everything in this show is a mess! The characters are weird, the dialogue is messed up, and the way they talk is creepy!!! Sometimes when I watch this, some of the characters freak me out!!! The talking frog-people are really weird....anyone who watched this show, do you agree with me about this?
