SMURFS, THE: SEASON 1 - SMURF YOUR SEAT BELTS cover image
I like the animation in The Smurfs Season 1: Smurf Your Seat Belts! The attention paid to details, especially with the Smurfs is terrific.

The storyline follows a small argument between two Smurfs who took a turn after they realized that they were not alone.

Any Smurf fan will enjoy this with its terrific animation and story development. I like how the story unfolds slowly with the entire conflict being revealed bit by bit. It starts off with two Smurfs arguing over the problem of where to shoot an arrow and then it leads to Handy and Storm arguing over inventions, which leads to an air race and that escalates their conflict. I also like the external conflict shown, with the Gargamel trying to also invent something that can defeat the Smurfs after he tests his flying device on his cat. He takes it to the skies and tries to duel it out and, to end all conflicts, Gargamel is defeated by the Smurfs. The visuals are terrific. I particularly like the over-the-shoulder shot when Storm and Handy crash land; it is from Handy's perspective, which shows the two having a dialogue. The sound effects are superb and definitely add to the humor and excitement of the story's development. The two main characters, Handy and Storm, show considerable character growth as they move from a quarrelsome duo that argues over simple problems to working together as a team. When they realize that there is a bigger problem than their small issues that can threaten their entire village they team up to help stop Gargamel's attack. My favorite part is when Storm and Handy realize that they have to work together to defeat Gargamel.

The message of these episodes is about teamwork and how it is the success to any problem!

I give The Smurfs Season 1: Smurf Your Seat Belts 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 12, plus older Smurf lovers! Recommended by Tom W., KIDS FIRST!

Peyo's beloved characters are careening back on TV in a brand new, high-voltage, 3D version of this perennial favorite. Using pure Smurf DNA from the comic books, this new series aimed at girls and boys will push the charm and absurdity of the original to greater heights, fitting in perfectly with today's faster-paced times. We're going to present original stories with more complex characters, snappier dialogues, joyful anarchy, and irresistible global appeal for a contemporary audience aged 5 to 10. It will be an explosive box of adventure and humor!
