Event: The Smurfs

Data: 23-10
Their first full appearance was published in "Spirou" on October 23, 1958. The Smurfs are the popular little characters created by Pejo, Franco-Belgian comic artist.

The blue-skinned characters a few centimeters tall who live in a forest, in small mushroom houses, each with their own characteristic and all fighting against a human enemy, Gargamel, who wants to capture them to drown their magic.

Schtroumpf is pronounced like the German word "Strumpf" meaning "sock". Having momentarily forgotten the word "salt", Peyo asked to his colleague and friend André Franquin (in French) to pass the schtroumpf. Franquin jokingly replied, "Here's the Schtroumpf—when you are done schtroumpfing, schtroumpf it back..." and the two spent the rest of that weekend speaking in "schtroumpf language". The name was later translated into Dutch as Smurf, which was adopted in English.
