Patrick Winslow is the main human character in the 2011 Smurfs movie who is the husband of Grace Winslow and friends of the Smurfs. He is an advertising executive who works for Odile Anjelou of the Anjelou cosmetics company. He first encountered the Smurfs when Clumsy had accidentally stowed away in one of his boxes and they infiltrated his apartment by hiding in the same box that Clumsy had left. Initially Patrick found their presence rather annoying and unhelpful in his work, but he does help them in finding the "stargazer" and also in rescuing Papa Smurf from Gargamel when he got his hands on the dragon wand. Papa Smurf helps Patrick find confidence in himself as a father and a husband. He becomes the father of his son Blue.
He appears in The Smurfs 2 with his son Blue, now four years old, and with his stepfather Victor Doyle, who he considers an embarrassment because he stepped into the life that his real father abandoned. Over the course of the story, Patrick and Victor make amends with each other and together help rescue the Smurfs from Gargamel. He also appears in cartoon form in the cutscenes for The Smurfs 2: The Video Game.
The character is played by Neil Patrick Harris.
