The Smurfette gets her own special volume! In "Little Red Smurfing Hood," life begins to imitate art after Smurfette dons a red cape and meets a sorcerer in wolf's clothing-- Gargamel! Plus, four more Smurf-tastic stories featuring everyone's favorite blue bombshell.
Another iconic Smurf, The Smurf Apprentice, gets the Anthology treatment! A smurf wants to emulate Papa Smurf, and decides the best way to do so would be to practice magic. So, the smurf sneaks into Gargamel's lab and steals instructions for a magic potion. The smurf foolishly drinks the potion and is turned into a monstrous lizard that all of the smurfs fear. Can Papa Smurf create an antidote? Or will the Smurfs be seeing green for the rest of their lives? The Smurfs have delighted us all with their silliness, bravery, heroism, and heart for over 50 years, and now we finally have a definitive collection of Peyo's original comics to see where it all began.
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!
If you thought Obamacare was confusing, wait until you see the Smurfs tackle the medical profession! When one Smurf steps up as doctor he starts a fever-for more doctors! Soon, a hospital is built in the Smurf Village and it rapidly fills up with all sorts of wacky cases. But how much help are these new doctors actually giving their patients? As usual, only Papa Smurf can provide the remedy for the latest Smurfs craze. It's another classic Smurfs adventure from master cartoonist Peyo.
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 hurt in a lab accident he sends a smurf to the good wizard Homnibus for help. Although Homnibus has a cure, he needs to buy some seeds he's missing for the recipe.

After teaching his fellow smurfs how to buy things with money, some smurfs get rich while others don't, and things quickly tumble into disarray. Will the smurfs find a way back to the peaceful way things used to be?
