The Smurf’s Apprentice

Clumsy Smurf is having an especially clumsy day, bumping into his fellow Smurfs and annoying them greatly. Seeing that the other Smurfs are getting upset with him, Clumsy gets the idea that they might like him more if he could do magic, just like Papa Smurf.

After Papa Smurf turns down Clumsy’s request to be his assistant, Clumsy sneaks into Garagamel‘s house and steals a page from his book of spells. Clumsy returns to the village and tries out the spell, which turns him into a scaly green monster. After Papa Smurf can’t find a cure for him, Clumsy secretly goes back to Gargamel’s house and is captured.

The Smurfs discover Clumsy has gone to Gargamel’s, so they set off to save him. They outsmart Gargamel and Azrael and Clumsy is turned back into a Smurf. The Smurfs escape back to the village, leaving Gargamel and Azrael crying and frustrated with being unable to catch the little blue guys.

Back in the village, Clumsy returns to his old ways, tripping and sending a basketful of smurfberries onto the heads of his fellow Smurfs. But this time, they look past his clumsiness and Jokey gives him a present, which explodes in Clumsy’s face.

The Smurfette

Gargamel is at his window, lamenting the excessive amount of happiness which exists. He blames it on the Smurfs, and devises a plan to get rid of them. He comes up with an idea to make a Smurfette – a female Smurf – and creates her in his lab.

The Smurfs are out in the forest, collecting smurfberries, when they come across the black-haired Smurfette. They take her back to the village and the other Smurfs welcome her and tell her she can stay for as long as she likes. Smurfette tries to seduce the Smurfs by arranging a picnic, but the other Smurfs are too busy to attend, except for Jokey, who gives her a present that promptly explodes in her face.

Smurfette then comes up with the idea to flood the village by wrecking the dam. She bribes Greedy with a cake and a struggle ensues. The dam’s control lever breaks and the village is flooded. Smurfette falls into the water, but is saved by the Smurfs. She’s put on trial and tearfully reveals that she’s been taking orders from Gargamel. They forgive her and Papa Smurf uses magic to turn her into a real Smurf. Now sporting blonde hair, Smurfette is a big hit with the other Smurfs, who woo her with goodies and gifts.

Gargamel contacts Smurfette on her magical compact, sees she has betrayed him, but tricks her into gathering the Smurfs for a surprise party. The Smurfs get trapped in a box that Garagamel has set up. Smurfette arrives and, seeing that the Smurfs have been captured, thinks up an idea to save them. A masked, gruff-voiced Smurf named the Lone Smurf appears and wreaks havoc with Gargamel and Azrael, and causes them to fall from a tree and crash to the ground. The Smurfs are set free by the Lone Smurf, who turns out to be Smurfette.

Gargamel, now bandaged and in a cast, receives an unexpected visit at his house. It’s a big, ugly, black-haired woman who begs him to feed her and take care of her. Gargamel (and Azrael) runs away from her and curses the Smurfs for giving him a taste of his own medicine. Back in the Smurf Village, the Smurfs celebrate with Smurfette and proclaim their love for her.

Notes:

  • Smurfette has a closetful of dresses that are all the same, but she can’t decide what to wear!
  • Grouchy says, “I love the Smurfette, but I hate anybody to know about it!”

Vanity Fare

Gargamel is at home, working on a plan to catch the Smurfs. He creates a magic mirror, which is designed to trap the Smurfs inside. Azrael gets sucked into the mirror, the interior of which looks like a spooky forest, but Gargamel quickly pulls him back out and calls him a “nincompuss” for having looked into it.

In the Smurf Village, the Smurfs are playing a competitive game of soccer, and Vanity Smurf is in goal. His mirror gets broken and Vanity wanders into the forest after Hefty blames him for letting the other team win the game. Gargamel and Azrael hide inside the mirror, which they’ve left in the forest, and wait for a Smurf to appear. Vanity arrives and looks into the mirror, which then sucks him into it. Gargamel catches Vanity, but one Smurf is not enough for him, as he hopes to get more Smurfs and turn them into “Smurf stew.”

Papa Smurf is working in his lab when a frantic Smurfette bursts in and tells him that Vanity is missing. The Smurfs form two search parties, one of which consists of Smurfette, Brainy, and Clumsy, who search from the sky on Feathers, their bird friend. They find the mirror and are soon sucked into it. After escaping from a pair of evil trees, they find Vanity, who escapes from Garagamel’s clutches by socking him in the nose.

The Smurfs are chased and cornered by Gargamel, who tries to whack them with a giant club, but ends up hitting the mirror instead. A break in the glass allows the Smurfs to escape. Papa Smurf and the other Smurfs arrive as Smurfette, Vanity, Clumsy, and Brainy emerge from the mirror, which is now cracked and smoking. The Smurfs run away, the mirror explodes, and Gargamel and Azrael are left covered in soot. Frustrated, Garagamel bangs his head against a tree, as does Azrael.

The Smurfs celebrate their victory. Jokey gives Vanity a present, which turns out to be a new mirror. Vanity is happy, until he looks into the mirror and sees a distorted version of his face. He freaks out and runs into the forest. The other Smurfs laugh their heads off.

Notes:

  • After losing the soccer match, an angry Hefty says, “Go smurf a tree, Vanity!”
