Of all the TV cartoon programmes I watch, I enjoy most the one with funny
little blue men called, 'The Smurfs'. This is a weekly show with a colourful
background of green woods, flowers, butterflies, birds and squirrels.
These small blue creatures, the Smurfs, have, as their leader, Papa
Smurf, a good character. They help unfortunate creatures including outsiders
in difficult situations. Then, there's Smurfette, a lovely girl Smurf with a
delightful voice, helpful and ladylike in all her ways. Next, we have Baby
Smurf, a truly lovable character whose language is cute and adorable and it
is a pleasure to watch her and listen to her baby language.
The scenes are set mainly outdoors in pretty surroundings in the woods
with lots of trees, flowers, ponds, hills, waterfalls and rivers which
delight the eye.
Most fairy tales have giants, witches or monsters, and 'The Smurfs' is of
no exception. There is Gargamelle, a wicked, ugly wizard, cruel to the
Smurfs whom he plans to catch and imprison. Many a time, the Smurfs escape
his cruel clutches and are free. His cat, Azriel, is a wild and unpleasant
creature making eerie sounds and mewing.
He and Gargamelle are always punished for their
misdeeds and wickedness.
I enjoy this programme as I find it amusing and entertaining especially
with its beautiful scenery. Besides, the Smurfs are a lovable lot.
