"The Smurf's Christmas Special" finds the Smurfs busy preparing for Christmas, decorating their village and making Great Pudding, while Gargamel, as always, is busy thinking of ways to destroy the little blue folks. Along comes a horse and sleigh carrying two children and their grandfather. Their sleigh overturns, and the story's focus turns to the two lost children seeking help. The Smurfs find the frightened children and take them to their village where they share with them their presents, pudding, and songs. The children think Papa Smurf is Santa Claus. Gargamel teams up with an evil stranger to kidnap the children, but evil is thwarted when the Smurfs repeatedly sing the song "Goodness makes the badness go away." There is, of course, a happy ending.
The evil stranger, the kidnapping of the children, and a circle of fire that they are trapped in may be a bit scary for very young children, but I would say this show would be fine for ages 5 and up. For younger children, a parent might want to watch it with them to answer any questions about what is taking place.
In the second movie, "Tis the Season to be Smurfy", the Smurfs are again busy decorating their village for Christmas. Grandpa Smurf takes Sassette to the human village to see how they celebrate Christmas Eve, and they discover that not all humans are as "smurfy" as they should be, meaning some of them are bad.Read more ›
'Tis the Season to be Smurfy originally aired on December 13, 1987 and The Smurfs Christmas Special aired on December 12, 1982. Both episodes are fun to watch and brings me back to my childhood days.
Get a region-free DVD player and you can get copies from all over the world. The version released in Europe (world-wide) includes all 4 holiday specials (The Smurfs Christmas Special, 'Tis the Season to be Smurfy, Baby's First Christmas, and The Magic Sack of Mr. Nicholas).
The total play time is over 100 minutes. If you get a region-free DVD player, you'll also be able to get all nine seasons of the Smurfs on DVD. You'll have to purchase each season separately. :((
The simply titled The Smurfs Christmas Special is the older offering. It is a tale of two lost children whom the Smurfs attempt to save from a mysterious, magical stranger. Meanwhile, Gargamel uses a spell from this same stranger to try and destroy the Smurf village once and for all. The tale is simple and once again, love is used to conquer all (expressed in song).
The second episode on this DVD, 'Tis the Season to be Smurfy features a little more madcap hijinx as a couple of pursuits break out while some of the Smurfs try to learn the true meaning of Christmas (now there's an original theme for you) after befriending an elderly couple. Of course, the Smurfs burst into song frequently to raise spirits.
In both films the Smurfs are mistaken for elves, and in one case Papa Smurf is thought to be Santa Claus. This helps to make their adventures have a more Christmas feel. Otherwise, these would just be regular episodes of the Smurfs, in snow.

Cute movie. Actually two movies in this. My five year old liked it. It is the classic, "older" smurfs which I liked. Great price, played well, shipped very fast. Read morePublished 1 month ago by son_Of_liberty
Absolute classics for the holidays. Although the two plot lines aren't quite as entertaining as many of the series' stories, they are still great.Published 4 months ago by brown woods
