- The series was dubbed into Croatian twice, first during its original run in the 80s by TVZ and then a second time later on in the late 90s/early 2000 by HRT. While the first dub is mostly absent from official releases on DVDs and VHS tapes as well as TV re-runs, several season 1 episodes with the original dub are featured on the DVDs and re-runs and the rest are no longer officially available.
- Croatian versions of various episodes:
- In The Astro Smurf, when Dreamy asks Papa Smurf about whether his rocket would work on his second attempt, the latter names "Techno Smurf" instead of Handy when telling him that the rocket was "fixed". It is unknown whether this is an error, Handy's original name before being changed, or an intentional alteration.
- In St. Smurf And The Dragon, during the scene where Handy presents his contraption for catching Azrael to Grouchy, the former is misidentified as Hefty instead; Handy's voice actor (normally Slobodan Milovanović) in this scene matches that of Hefty (Damir Mejovšek), and Grouchy also refers to him as "Hefty".
- In the original English dub of Vanity Fare, Hefty tells Vanity to "go smurf a tree" when the latter angrily decides to stop playing because the other Smurfs broke his mirror with the ball they were playing with. In the Croatian dub, Hefty instead says "Ma daj, koji ti je sad štrumpf?" (in English: "Come on, what the smurf is with you?"), in essence scolding Vanity for getting angry over having his mirror broken and leaving because of that instead of simply telling him off.
In the Czech Republic, the series is known as "Šmoulové".

(In Belgium, the theme was done by a male singer instead.) For seasons 4 to 7, the "Smurfy Way" theme song is used, accompanying portions of the intro sequences from seasons 4 and 5.

- The series was originally dubbed in Polish from 1987 to 1999 on TVP. Seasons 1-3, 5, and (partially) 6-8 were done first, while seasons 4 and 9 (and the rest of season 7) were later done in the 90s. On May 2005, TVP re-broadcasted seasons 5, 6, 7, and 9, but at the time, a majority of the original master tapes for the first four seasons were either lost or damaged. So, in 2006, seasons 1-4 were re-dubbed by the studio "Telewizja Polska - Agencja Filmowa" with new voices for some characters (but with the same recording of the original Polish theme), though some episodes kept their original dub intact. These episodes aired until 2009. Later, several episodes that have not received a Polish version yet were later dubbed for the first time in October 2010. On January 2014, the series moved to a new channel TVP ABC. Most of the old dub episodes air on Teletoon+
- The first alternate international theme was used for season 1, while the "Smurfy Way" theme was used from seasons 2 to 6. Afterwards, seasons 7-9 used their original intros. The original Polish "Smurfy Way" theme was later remastered for seasons 1-7, starting in 2006.
- The show is target "for everyone" (even on Teletoon+), despite having drama and animal cruelty
- This however changed when Puls2 picked it up in early 2020, with them changed the audience target to Y7
- All male Smurfs in this version speak with a low tone (except Jokey Smurf (who is voiced by a man) in the last sessions of the old dub and new dub)
