Product Description

Smurfs Holiday Celebration, The

]]>

Amazon.com

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

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.

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.

You can't beat this blast from the past. If you love the Smurfs and grew up watching it every Sat morning like I did this DVD is a must have for Christmas time! I watched it with my 21 month old son and he loves it too.

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,

The Smurfs are a part of past and present generation they are characters that promotes care feelings and provide good examples of life, portrayed by these lovable Smurfs characters. A perfect movie that can be enjoyed during the Christmas season.

Heaven knows why, but The Smurfs' Christmas Special from 1982, and 'Tis The Season to be Smurfy from 1987, are the only Christmas specials on this Smurfy DVD. The other 2 original Christmas specials, Baby's First Christmas from 1983, and its follow-up The Magic Sack of Mr. Nicholas from 1987, remain unavailable on authorized DVDs, as with most of the whole series. Oh well, like with the Flintstones' Christmas specials, half of their specials on DVD is better than none. The Smurfs' Christmas Special is about a certain devilish stranger wanting revenge on William and Gwenevere's uncle after their grandpa's sleigh tipped over; as the kids were found by the Smurfs, they mistake Papa for Santa himself, due to his similarities to Mr. Nicholas himself. Luckily, their uncle and his search party found their grandpa before the stranger could ever cook their geese. It won't be such a merry Christmas when Gargamel and Azrael get their just desserts from an even worse bad guy, unless the Smurfs' song in their hearts intervene. In 'Tis The Season to be Smurfy, Grandpa Smurf shows Sassette what Christmas is like for people, including a poor old couple who really deserve a merry Christmas with all the help they can get, thanks to the rest of the Smurfs coming to their senses from being too busy with their own Christmas chores. As with many other Hanna-Barbera Christmas classics, my family's been complaining about these not being on DVD, until 2011 when half of their original Christmas specials came to DVD with this collection. The other half still ain't on DVD if you're wondering about this one's contents. There's also Sony's Smurfs' Christmas Carol from 2011, sold separately, if you're interested in it, since surviving creators of the series helped bring that special's 2D animation to life, like with Smurfy Hollow in 2013. For once, having a Blue Christmas is a good thing, with the Smurfs' Christmas specials on DVD, even if 3 out of 5 isn't bad!

I loved the Smurf's Christmas shows and every year they show them less and less. This year we were not able to see it at all, so I decided I should just order the dvd to have it on hand so we can watch it when we want to.

I loved this Christmas special from my childhood. So happy to see it's out on DVD, because my VHS tape was wearing thin! This DVD includes both "Tis the season to be Smurfy" and "The Smurfs Christmas Special". The kids will love it!
