PIERRE CULLIFORD, born in Belgium in 1928, was the cartoonist known as Peyo. Peyo began his career working with some of Belgium's most talented cartoonists, including his lifelong writing partner Yvan Delporte. In 1958, The Smurfs made their first appearance and went on to become the world-famous characters we know and love today.
Flying Smurf has never given up on his dreams of being the first Smurf in the sky, and this time he's enlisted the help of Handy Smurf to make that dream a reality! Unfortunately for everyone else, Flying Smurf and his new flying machine prove to be a disastrous combination, especially to Smurfette's garden.
When Gargamel meets a giant with an insatiable appetite, he comes up with a plan to use the giant to destroy the Smurfs: tell him that Smurfs make the most delicious soup in the world! Papa Smurf catches wind of the plot, and begins to create a potion that will enable them to turn the giant, nicknamed "Bigmouth," against Gargamel.
When Natural Smurf, Slouchy Smurf, and Snappy Smurf arrive at The Smurfs village as The Smurflings, all their newfangled ideas start to turn things upside down. Whether it's back-talking Grouchy Smurf, outsmarting Jokey Smurf, wearing their own clothes, or making up their own music, it looks like nothing will ever be the same.
When Papa Smurf tries to make a new fertilizer for the crops, it transforms an ordinary flower into a dangerous smurfivore plant. Two Smurfs try to get rid of the fertilizer by dumping it outside the Smurf village, but a bird swallows it and becomes a huge monster; the Howlibird.
On a quiet night in their village, a stork visits the Smurfs and leaves a Baby Smurf on one of their doorsteps. But the next day, the stork returns - the Baby Smurf was delivered by accident and must be returned! As soon as they go to fetch the baby for the stork, they find it's gone! Where did the Baby Smurf go?
There's no peace on Earth when Christmas comes to the Smurfs Village, at least not while Gargamel is lurking about! In this collection, before The Smurfs can stuff their stockings and open their presents, they have to deal with dragons, talking snowmen, grumpy bears, a kidnapped Santa Claus, and a reindeer chase through the starry night sky.
