Chef Boyardee Commercial

Here is the classic 1980s Smurf Pasta TV commercial

A great commercial that uses the show’s original character voices and has a bit of a plot;

In the commercial, Gargamel decides to steal all the smurf’s food, which prompts Papa Smurf to create Smurf Pasta in four delicious flavors. Gargamel is foiled again.

History of the Smurfs

The Belgian cartoonist Peyo introduced Smurfs to the world in a series of comic strips, making their first appearance in the Belgian comics magazine Le Journal de Spirou on October 23, 1958. The English-speaking world perhaps knows them best through the popular 1980s animated television series from Hanna-Barbera Productions, The Smurfs.

Johan et Pirlouit

At the time, Peyo (original name Pierre Culliford) created a Franco-Belgian comics series in Le Journal de Spirou titled Johan et Pirlouit (translated to English as Johan and Peewit), set in Europe during the Middle Ages. Johan serves as a brave young page to the king, and Peewit (Pirlouit, pronounced Peer-loo-ee) functions as his faithful, if boastful and cheating, midget sidekick.

On October 23, 1958,[2] Peyo introduced a new set of characters to the Johan et Pirlouit story La flûte à six trous.[3] This alone caused no great excitement, as the brave duo constantly encountered strange new people and places. This time, they had the mission of recovering a magic flute, which required some sorcery by the wizard Homnibus. And in this manner, they met a tiny, blue-skinned humanoid creature in white clothing called a “Schtroumpf”, followed by his numerous peers who looked just like him, with an elderly leader who wore red clothing and had a white beard. The characters proved to be a huge success, and the first independent Smurf stories appeared in Spirou in 1959, together with the first merchandising.

With the commercial success of “The Smurf empire” came the merchandising empire of Smurf miniatures, models, games, and toys. Entire collecting clubs have devoted themselves to collecting PVC Smurfs.

Unicef Commercial: Smurfs at War!!

This is quite an attention grabber: a commercial developed by Unicef in Belgium (hence why the video is not in English).    This commercial was obviously not created for children.
