Say hello to our little Smurfs

Do you guys have any idea where the term goblin arose from? I think goblins are as interesting as mushrooms, but they only exist in a movie and fantasy world. I loved the Emmy-winning Hanna-Barbera cartoon series “The Smurfs” as a child. The Smurfs are not exactly goblins, cause they’re blue, they have four fingers at each hand, and a small tale. Warner Bros. had released  The Smurfs - Season One, Vol. One later on, which contained the first 19 episodes of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon series. About a decade ago I used to play a Smurfs videogame…forgot the name.


The creator of The Smurfs was the Belgian Peyo (Pierre Culliford). At first, there were comic strips which were introduced in 1958. The blue creatures were at first called “Schtroumpf” which was later translated in Dutch as “Smurfs”. The first animated series in black and white were based on existing stories and was created by the writer Maurice Rosy which were introduced in 1961.
I’m awaiting the new Smurfs movies coming soon, in which Katy Perry is providing the voice of Smurfette. The preparations for these movies had begun since 2003, so I’m excited of the outcome. Though…am I too old for The Smurfs movie…ha, I can take one of my nieces or nephews or maybe my youngest cousin along to the cinema.:) Meenu, one of my best friends, took me to the cinema some time ago and we watched Tangled…so I don’t think watching The Smurfs should be a problem. Meenu wanted to be the first to take me to our newest cinema TBL & so I had called off my friend Sylvana’s offer to take me out to TBL cinemas in September 2010 and waited 4 months till Meenu had time and that was on the 25th of January, but the wait was worth it. This was also my first 3-D movie and we had a wonderful time. Meenu had picked me up from home and she had paid for everything and said, “Consider that it’s your birthday today”.:) We first went to buy the tickets, but we saw a red carpet, so Meenu was like, ‘’Shit, we can’t go inside!”. We bought our tickets, cuase we actually could get inside from one of the stairs. And after that, we went to Coffee Corner and we had a Ciabata and milkshake (I had a ‘Tomato Mozzarella Ciabata’ and a strawberry milkshake). We went back early in the cinema and asked the ticket controller constantly if we could get inside. Meenu said that it gets crowded and it’s difficult to find a good seat from where the view is perfect if u don’t go inside early. But it appeared that the cinema hall was almost empty. Only one child and 6 adults (including the two of us).:)

Okay, that’s it for today! Ciaooooo everyone!!! Will be back next week with our Kido-cat. Till then, have a smurfing time! I’ll probably have a super smurfing time at granny’s tomorrow, it’s her 79th birthday.;)
