Everybody Loves A Smurf!

Everybody loves a Smurf, don't they? We all grew up watching the Hanna-Barbera children's television series, didn't we? Surly as a child, you loved the little white cap wearing blue critters? I certainly wanted to live in a little mushroom-shaped house, didn't you? I amassed a large collection of figurines and plush toys. I even had the hit single by Father Abraham. I played it to death on my parents record player, singing along as If I were a Smurf. I can even remember most of their names - Brainy, Greedy, Handy, Hefty, Jokey, Vanity, Lazy, Smurfette and Papa Smurf, come to mind. I personally loved, the greatest cartoon villain ever sketched, the wizard Gargamel. He and his bumbling cat Azrael, who was a constant threat for any Smurf who wondered to close to Gargamel's hut, always made me chuckle. But it was Smurfette I most loved, obviously. She had such fabulous blonde flowing locks, the cutest dress and fantastic heels. But seriously, I'm not Smurf obsessed. So, who was your favorite Smurf? Do tell?
