Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Beloved in Europe for almost 20 years before they became a toy and marketing hit on American shores, Belgian cartoonist Peyo's industrious and charming Smurfs were a natural choice for Saturday morning TV. Though simplistic by today's animation standards, the quarter-century-plus since their U.S. TV debut has not diminished the key ingredient to the Smurfs' enduring appeal: their unflappably upbeat demeanor, which helps Papa Smurf, Smurfette, and the rest of the clan overcome the schemes of their chief rival, the evil wizard Gargamel. True Blue Friends contains five episodes from the second season: "S-Shivering S-Smurfs," "Turncoat Smurf," "The Smurf Who Couldn't Say No," "The Haunted Castle," and "The Black Hellebore." --Paul Gaita

Product Description

The Smurfs are a group of over 100 bluish, three-apple tall creatures who live in the mushroom homes of Smurf Village. They are led by 543-year-old Papa Smurf (who doesn't look a day over 530). Their lives would be perfect were it not for the villainous Gargamel, a wizard who spends his days trying to capture them to eat, turn into gold, or for other evil reason. Gargamel's cat Azrael adds to the menace, always looking for a smurfalicious snack.. Its Season Two, Vol. 1 of Smurf Adventures, the Emmy-winning animated series [Outstanding Childrens Entertainment Series 1982-83] that delighted Saturday morning cartoon fans for nearly a decade.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Season 2 March 11, 2009
This is a single DVD with the following episodes on it:
S-Shivering S-Smurfs - An early winter comes to Smurf Village and Tracker is the only one prepared and saves the village.
Turncoat Smurf - Gargemel uses his dog to track down the Smurfs after finding Brainy's laundry.
The Smurf Who Couldn't Say No - Pushover Smurf is used to do all the work and puts out the Fox Fire awakening a monster.
The Haunted Castle - Johan & Peewit' meet a ghost in a drought filled countryside with the Smurfs help they end the drought.
The Black Hellebore - After the king is poisoned by the potion maker, to wake the king Johan & Peewit' need the antidote from Homnubus. The potion maker later uses the evil Hellebore flower to try and take over the kingdom.

The title sequence of each episode is the newest of the three opening sequences that I know of. The one on the Season 1 DVD's was something about Smurfs being good and Gargemel being Bad, the one from most of when I was growing up had Gargemel chanting "total destruction from mountain to shore", and this one was used when Peewit' & Johan were main characters has Papa singing while the dam is bing built. I don't know if there was an additional opening for when the Smuflings were in the show.

This DVD has the same issue that the Season 1 DVD's did where the menu is much louder then the episodes. I just wish that they would have continued to release the seasons, this was just a tease of what should have been released.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stupid......... June 12, 2009
It's really sad to me how greed continues even with children movies.It would make more sense to me if warner would just continue putting out there 20-25 episode season's of the smurfs,and stop trying to make a buck by wasting time and energy to put out these crappy cheap overpriced greatest hits episode from the 2 seasons that are already contained in the first 2 smurfs seasons sets...otherwise great show and memories....geesh...greed...greed

This DVD and the whole set in general is yet another grievous example of trying to suck as many dollars as possible for as little value as possible by the same types of executives who used to run record companies. 5 lousy episodes representing "Season 2 Volume 1" Using this math Season 2 would end up being as many as 12 DVDs. Really Hanna Barbera? This kind of greediness is the reason why the recording industry is now owned by Apple, who came in and picked up the pieces after file-sharing destroyed this kind of business-as-usual disregard for your consumers. What a garbage collection. Total waste of money not to mention space. I'd easily pay $30 for a proper Season 2 collection of all the episodes, but this kind of parsing out means I'm passing on this measly offering. And so should everybody.

3.0 out of 5 stars I am Smurfed May 12, 2009
By ChrisP
Booooo...why would you not continue to release the seasons sets and only put out a few episodes. Are they not going to come out with the season sets anymore? I could deal with the episodes being out of order in the first two DVD's...but I want more smurfs :(
Who can we write to so we can ask for the season sets...I don't want to buy those burned copies that are being sold.

5.0 out of 5 stars A slight problem, but I still love it January 2, 2011
Has anyone had the problem of different content on their dvd? I received the True Blue Friends for christmas but the episodes match those on the 1st disc of the Season 1 vol. 2. I think there are more episodes than the other but I have never experienced a problem like this. I am just not sure what to do if I want to purchase the rest. The label on the disc even reads True Blue Friends so it must be a manufacturing flaw. I am just curious if I am the only one or are there others. A great product though. I am a grown up who loves the Smurfs and my kids love it now also.

1.0 out of 5 stars EPISODES LISTED NOT INCLUDED September 15, 2011
The DVD disc says "The Smurfs Volume One True Blue Friends" and the 5 episodes listed on the case are "S-Shivering S-Smurts", "Turncoat Smurf", "The Smurf Who Couldn't Say No", "The Haunted Castle" and "The Black Hellebore".

HOWEVER, when you put the disc in the DVD player, the menu comes up and says "Season One, Volume Two", and the episodes actually on the disk are "The Magic Egg", "Smurfette's Dancing Shoes", "Supersmurf", "The Baby Smurf", "The Fake Smurf", "Paradise Smurfed", "Sir Hefty", "The Purple Smurfs", "Haunted Smurf" and "Sideshow Smurfs".

WE ALREADY OWN BOTH VOLUMES OF SEASON ONE. That's why I bought this, thinking these were different episodes. Obviously there was been some kind of BIG mixup during the manufacturing process. GOOD LUCK GETTING WHAT YOU PAID FOR -- I didn't.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip-off May 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
Wish I'd read the other reviews before I ordered this. If I had I would not have ordered it.

As others have pointed out this is not Season 2: Volume One. And no where on the package does it claim to be. But Amazon is labeling as such and claiming the $5.49 price is a 63% discount!

Smurfs: True Blue Friends contains one disc with only 5 episodes. Total run time is around 2 and half hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item. My daughter loves the smurfs! August 30, 2010
By T. Lee
This item brings back a lot of memories of when I was younger and used to watch this cartoon. I wish all the older cartoons were on tv now for the kids to watch. The older cartoons were the best!!!

Beware of any company that offers the complete series!
Yes, I agree. I don't understand this. I went to one website that had all nine seasons for $60. I filled out everything until the credit card portion because the website wasn't secure. I emailed them and they never responded.
Is season one the only season that is out. My daughter thought she saw... Read More
