The Smurfs are a group of small blue beings who live in the forest. They originally appeared in 1958 as side characters in the story Johan and Peewit. I’m sure, however, that most people know the Smurfs from the classic cartoon from the 80’s by Hannah Barbara. Your can read a history on this website http://www.smurf.com/smurf.php/www/facts/en.

Now I’m sure that many people would argue with me if I were to say that Smurfs were fairies, but if you think about it.. what else could they be? Little blue people living in mushrooms in the forest. They even wear little elf caps, and as we all know elves are fairies.
There will be a live action film coming out in the summer of 2011
