Pushover (original French name Schtroumpf Bonasse) is a Smurf who appears in the episode "The Smurf Who Couldn't Say No". As the title of the episode suggests, he is so named because he couldn't say no to his fellow Smurfs even when he wanted to, which was why during the preparations for the Firefly Festival he was goaded into doing his fellow Smurfs' work for them and rarely had any time to enjoy the festival himself.

When Scaredy Smurf was picked to go to the Great Swamp to get the foxfire, he went to Pushover's house to ask him to do it on his place. Pushover got the foxfire from the Great Swamp, but he accidentally put the fire out, which caused a creature to rise from the swamp growling, and saying "Cursed is he who killed the flame; cursed is he who gives me pain".

Meanwhile in the village, Scaredy learned about what happens if the foxfire went out when Papa Smurf told Scaredy that it would awaken the Marsh Monster. Scaredy does find Pushover, and both of them run back to the village with the foxfire to relight it, though Pushover this time had Scaredy relight the foxfire while adamantly refusing to do it himself for Scaredy.

Pushover and Scaredy return to the village, and the firefly lantern that was set up earlier gets lit. This dangerous experience teaches Pushover that he must sometimes say no and not be afraid to stand up for himself.

He is voiced by Ronnie Schell, who also voiced Rickie Raccoon of Shirttales.


  • Pushover Smurf is one of the few Smurfs characters never to return in other media, such as movies, video games and comic books. Although he had a sizable fanbase, he never made any more appearances after his debut episode.
