Cartoons of the 80s were ten times better than the drek we have today.

This movie looks ridiculous. And what is with all the remakes? Can't get a freakin' original idea of your own, so you grave rob the classics? AND WHAT IS WITH ALL THE GRATUITOUS 3D?!!!!!

Why the hell does everything have to be in 3-freakin'-D?

It worked in avatar, but not this film, this smurfs film will be one of the worst films of this century, they only did this, because of money.

The only cartoons I have managed to enjoy in this day and age are the Clone Wars on Cartoon Network and Phineas and Ferb on Disney. Everything else just sounds like a dumb bunch of squeaking.

Messick and Blanc were voice actors, not creators, and both of them did their best work prior to the 1970s. Mel Blanc was THE voice of the golden age of cartoons, but that was roughly from the '40s to the late '60s.

But the 80's, they did it with charm and substance, something missing in today's cartoons.

Today's cartoons are just as bad as paris hilton.

and another thing that offended me about this new smurfs movie, how could one smurf shake their ass on this film, is this even 3D?

Yes 3D Movies will give you headaches, but this film will get you a headache.

You're joking, right? Foofur???? If the viewer is seven years old ... maybe. But a cartoon that stands the test of time and is enjoyable to both adults and children? Foofur???? In what universe?

A lot of them, sure. But I give you:

Avatar: The Last Airbender
Jimmy Neutron
The Fairly Oddparents
Samurai Jack
The Clone Wars
King of the Hill
Futurama
The Simpsons
Spongebob
Spectacular Spider-Man

And if you want to bring the '90s into the discussion:

Batman: The Animated Series
Pinky & the Brain
Animaniacs
Gargoyles
X-Men

Any one of those puts the best '80s cartoon to shame.

The Smurfs? I won't even say it isn't in their league. The Smurfs isn't even in the same smurfin' sport.
