Yes, you read that correctly. The Smurfs, much to my surprise (and yours I'm sure), are turning 50 this year. Yes, 50. They were created way back in 1958 in Belgium. I'm sure that the man who created them in the first place had no idea that they would be so huge (for such little critters). He died in the early 90's, so he surely had seen the huge success of the TV show here in the US. So, take a minute and rack your brain - who was your favorite Smurf?
