The Boomerang Network knows how to truly celebrate a holiday! That’s why, on Monday, February 15th, otherwise known as President’s Day, the sister-channel to the Cartoon Network will be airing a 12 hour Smurfs marathon, from 8am to 8pm. The mushroom-living little blue creatures will spend the entire day fouling Gargamel’s plans, avoiding Azrael, and singing happily, as they Smurf the day along. Led by the wise and magical Papa Smurf, the rest of the crew includes Brainy, Vanity, Hefty, Clumsy, Smurfette (the only female Smurf), and dozens of other adorable characters. Be sure to TOON in!
“The children who grew up watching The Smurfs are now having children of their own,” said Stacy Isenhower, senior vice president of programming and scheduling for Boomerang and Cartoon Network. “Boomerang’s Presidents’ Day marathon is a great opportunity for the whole family to enjoy this classic-both again or for the first time.”
