Something shocking that I found out about this weekend
Ok, so it's probably not shocking to anyone but me.
- •When I was young(er), I used to enjoy watching The Smurfs.
- •But I never saw the very first episode.
- •Anyway, our neighbors are moving soon and they wanted to get rid of some stuff they didn't want to take.There were a couple of boxes of DVDs that they said we could have first pick of before they had their garage sale.
- •Amongst these DVDs was season 1 of The Smurfs.Mine!
- •The very first episode explores how Smurfette came to be.
- •It turns out she wasn't always part of the Smurf Village.It was just the boys.
- •She was actually created by Gargamel using his evil magic to infiltrate the Smurf village and lead him to them.I had no idea!
- •Gargamel made her without really paying too much attention to things like cute dress, nice hair, etc.He just wanted quick access to those Smurfs. That rascal.
- •When she was discovered, Papa Smurf offered to use his good magic to reverse the evil spells Gargamel cast over her and make her a 'real' Smurf.
- •And she now looked like the Smurfette we all know.
- •She also had the chance to prove herself as a true Smurf at heart by rescuing the other Smurfs from Gargamel later in the episode.
- •And so now I know the truth. At last.
