Editorial Reviews

This double bill brings together a pair of prime-time episodes from the animated Hanna-Barbera series, which ran on NBC from 1981 to 1989. In the first, "The Smurfs' Christmas Special" (1982), the blue creatures with the white hats prepare for the holiday by decorating the tallest tree and making a great pudding, which looks like a cauldron full of lumpy cotton candy. At the same time, two children, William and Guinevere, and their grandfather travel through the snowy woods to their uncle's house. The unbridled enthusiasm of all these merrymakers grates on the nerves of curmudgeonly wizard Gargamel and his cat, Azrael, who join forces with a dastardly bandit to spoil their fun (Gargamel is looking for gold, the bandit for revenge). In the process of setting things right, the Smurfs sing "Goodness Makes the Badness Go Away," which offers a hopeful message, though two performances seems like one too many. In the second special, "'Tis the Season to Be Smurfy" (1987), the toadstool dwellers introduce Wild Smurf to his first Christmas, while Grandpa Smurf (voiced by Jonathan Winters) and Sassette foil a pickpocket and help out doll maker Gustav and his sick wife Elise (though listed first on the cover, this episode actually plays second). The lessons of the set include forgiveness, sharing with the less fortunate, and looking after the elderly, especially those without a support system. Tiny viewers may find the ravenous snakes, rats, and wolves frightening, but this brief, if enjoyable release is otherwise appropriate for all ages. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

4.0 out of 5 stars Colorful cartoon that teaches good moral lessons October 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
I ordered The Smurf's Holiday Celebration DVD to watch this Christmas season with my grandchildren and decided to watch it first. It is 48 minutes long and contains two stories; "The Smurfs' Christmas Special" and "Tis the Season to be Smurfy." My daughter used to love the Smurfs when she was growing up, so now her children can enjoy them as well.

"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas with the Smurfs September 18, 2012
The Smurfs Holiday Celebration may be a little pricey for only two episodes, but I'm a Smurf fan so I went ahead and bought the DVD last year.

'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.

2.0 out of 5 stars 'tis the reason to be dissatisfied January 14, 2012
By casey
It's sad for us Americans that the version available to us includes only two of the 4 Smurf's Christmas specials.

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. :((

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Holiday Collection, Both Are Christmas December 21, 2013
By tvideo
Verified Purchase
Why call it "Holiday" when clearly both specials say "Christmas"? If you do not celebrate Christmas you will be offended as these are NOT Holiday but are indeed Chrsitmas. Stupid WB and PC.

Great classics from 80s though,
