Happy 50th Birthday, Smurfs...


50 years ago today the world was introduced to the little blue fellas. Peyo created them for the Belgian comics magazine Le Journal de Spirou, as characters in his strip, 'Johan et Pirlouit' (translated to English as Johan and Peewit or Pee-Wee). The rest is history.

but, they're christian groups, so they're wrong.

I, on the other hand, have a mortal fear of small blue squeaky-voiced europeans. . .
