Smurfs turn 50

Smurfs turn 50

They may be little, they may be blue, but the Smurfs are turning 50 and there’s nothin we can do!  (hah!)  It was 50 years ago today that Belgian cartoonist Peyo first brought his creation, the Smurfs, to life in a magazine titled Spirou.  Since then, the little buggers have become world famous!  As part of the 50th anniversary of the Smurfs, a new giant Smurf balloon float will appear in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.  The parade, the 82nd annual, will be broadcast live on NBC at 9AM on Thanksgiving, November 27th.
