And that's what hurt me the most, because peyo clifford would have so ashamed at this movie if he were alive, I Know he would be.

Like I Sure as hell am now.

And as far as the smurfs legacy goes, it should have died with Peyo and others, would have saved us all a lot of trouble.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Most? Yeah. But there are still some jewels in the mud. Spongebob, Jimmy Neutron, Invader Zim, anything by Bruce Timm or Brandon Tartovsky.

Cartoons have grown up. Yeah, the majority of them are still garbage, but at least today's cartoons strive for things like plot and story. Cartoons in the '80s (of which the Smurfs were king) were simply filler between cereal commercials.

Not to me, the 80's have something that today's cartoons haven't and that's heart and substance.
today's cartoons aside from spongebob are terrible and they should no real substance here.


YouTube - ‪The Smurfs DVD Season 1 Volume 2 - Celebrities Remember The Smurfs‬‏

That cartoon had lessons they have learned, these cartoons of today have nothing, ever since the 1990's except a few, it all went downhill from here.

I Rather eat cereal watching the cartoon series the smurfs, then waste $7.00 to watch this piece of junk movie.

Even peyo would be even more horrified then ever if he were alive today.

While today's cartoons may have plot for some, they do not do it for me, at all, it's garbage, it's filthy, mean-spirited, nonsensical and have no heart.

the 80's cartoons just like the past had art and substance and true talent, today's cartoons aside from spongebob have no real talent.

Poor Don Messick must be rolling in his grave as we speak, he was best known for not only scooby doo and some others, but also best known for smurfs fans as papa smurf.
jonathan winters is just not for the voice of papa smurf, I Like him better as the voice of grandpa smurf

this movie is gonna be all of the movies based on cartoons look more like masterpieces.

To quote Inigo Montoya: "You keep using this word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

There were exceptions, sure, but most of the cartoons of the '80s and '90s were pretty terrible. And just because the Smurfs had a "nice message at the end" doesn't give it substance. The Mr. T cartoon eked nice messages.

I really hope the new movie reflects the Smurf society of the cartoons though. I can't wait to hear Glenn Beck ranting about socialist smurfs.

Today's cartoons are 10 times worse MUCH worse than that are in the 80's and 90's aside from spongebob, they have no real art, no substance nor charm in them.
plus they have absolutely no talent.
Don Messick and Mel Blanc would be ashamed at this now if they were alive.

and I Hope this new smurfs movie flops at the box office and people will have to return back to the cartoon series.
and get off the left/right paradigm, because neither of them do not exist today.
glenn beck, wolf blitzer, all the same.

And Don Messick was a television cartoon legend and he made the smurfs and the 1980's much proud, the 80's was us proud to be an american, compared to the 2000's and now.

the 1990's was the beginning of the end of cartoons and america as a whole.

the 80's were the last real american cartoons, even if we had cereal, they had more viewers back then than on the tv show dallas, another great show in it's own right.
