The Smurfs is a Belgian comic and television franchise that was first created and introduced as a series of comic characters by the Belgian artist Peyo (pen name of Pierre Culliford) in 1958. 

There are more than one hundred Smurfs, whose names are based on adjectives that emphasize their characteristics, example: "Jokey Smurf", who likes to play practical jokes on his fellow surfs, and "Clumsy Smurf", who has a habit of creating havoc unintentionally.
