All’s not well in Smurfs Village. Someone is actually proposing to build an actual wall around the Smurfs Village! Can you imagine any smurf saying such a crazy thing? Well, it all started when Papa Smurf observed that his Smurfs were fighting with each other and he concluded something needed to be done. And that’s when the trouble started. Papa Smurf creates negative versions of all the Smurfs. They’re just like the regular Smurfs except their clothes are a little darker and they don’t have any of the good qualities of the real Smurfs. For example, a black-haired Smurfette has all of Smurfette’s bad habits, and none of what’s good about Smurfette! When the Smurfs meet the so-called “Grey Smurfs,” they want to be friends. But the Grey Smurfs are only interested in going to war against the Smurfs, conquering them, and turning them all into their slaves. Can Papa Smurf fix this mess he created?
When Papa Smurf is away, the Smurfs will play! Handy Smurf has invented some machines to ease the burden of the hard-working Smurfs (not including Lazy Smurf!). Soon, the whole Village is interested in these inventions that improve the quality of life. Seduced by the easy life, The Smurfs rely more and more on these robots to perform their daily tasks, however small they may be. Will the Village survive the occupation of these high-functioning robots?
Stop the presses! Blue Journalism is coming to the Smurfs Village. When word of mouth stories get distorted being passed along from Smurf to Smurf, Reporter Smurf is on the scene to get the scoop and report the facts! But what happens when the newspaper airs the village’s dirty laundry for all to read? One reader is more than ready to believe what he sees in print...and his name is Gargamel!
The Smurfs’ eternal arch foe, the evil wizard Gargamel, is the center of attention in several Smurf-stories: “Gargamel and the Crocodile,” features Gargamel’s attempts to raise a pet crocodile, much to Azrael’s chagrin; Gourmelin, “Gargamel’s Twin Brother” also stops by for a visit; a very hungry fellow returns and demands Gargamel to feed him in “The Ogre and the Smurfs;” a very noisy bird keeps makes Gargamel’s life difficult in “The Smurfs and the Booglooboo;” then there’s “Gargamel’s Nephews” who look like three pint-size Gargamels, who stir up some trouble when they visit their uncle; and just when you think you’ve met all of Gargamel’s look-alike relatives, “Sagratamabarb” shows up and wants to move next door to his cousin Gargamel! And if all that wasn’t enough, there are dozens of gag-filled Smurfs comic strips, another adventure of Johan, in which the gallant court page must battle “The Master of Roucybeuf,” and an action-packed Benny Breakiron epic where the tiny, super-powered French boy encounters “Madame Adolphine,” a seeming harmless little old lady, who apparently is behind a major criminal caper!
The world of the Smurfs expands as a Brainy Smurf, Smurfette, Hefty Smurf and Clumsy Smurf discover a new village filled with a whole population of girl Smurfs! A whole new world of challenges and adventures awaits the Smurfs!
Back off, Booglooboo! Someone's knocking at the door--and they're coming in! Things are crazier than ever in the Smurfs Village, especially when the Smurflings appear! And what about the Smurfette? She's upset that she doesn't have a fellow female Smurf to be her friend. Well, the Smurflings have a plan to fix that, but it involves Gargamel!
Presenting the wicked worst of Gargamel! He's the villain we love to hate! He's Gargamel--and despite how many times Papa Smurf and the Smurfs thwart his sinister schemes, he keeps on coming back! Collected within this villainous volume are four infamous Smurfs stories featuring their nasty nemesis.
