Smurfs was a three-issue limited series comic book published by Marvel Comics in 1983. Each issue features two main stories, plus several one-page sketches, all created by Peyo. It was also published as a single giant-size comic book.

Issue #1
  • "Smurf Plane"

A Smurf builds a plane which he uses to rescue Smurfette from Gargamel. (This was adapted from the original comic book story "The Aerosmurf".)

  • "The Smurf Of Youth"

Smurfette and a few Smurfs are misled to a promised fountain of youth, only to end up almost being caught by Gargamel had Azrael not shown up.

Issue #2
  • "The Smurfs And The Evil Bird"

Gargamel transforms himself into a bird in order to infiltrate the Smurf Village. (This was adapted into the cartoon episode "Foul Feather Fiend".)

  • "Sticky Smurf"

Gargamel uses a delicious dessert as a trap for the Smurfs, but it also traps Gargamel. (Similar to The Tar Baby, from Disney's Song of the South.)

Issue #3
  • "Monster Smurfs"

Papa Smurf plays a prank on Jokey by having one of the latter's "surprises" turn several other Smurfs into monsters. Papa Smurf offers to change them back...on the condition that Jokey agrees, in writing, never to "surprise" another Smurf again. After Jokey signs Papa Smurf's pact -- of which the prankster actually holds up his end! -- the other Smurfs very soon grow bored with the quiet life. As it turns out, they actually miss Jokey's pranks! So Papa Smurf tears up the pact and Jokey promptly brings him an exploding present. (A cartoon episode by this name also has Smurfs turn into monsters.)

  • "Smurf Ball"

Handy designs a way for Hefty to play smurfball all by himself. However, Gargamel uses the tethered ball that Hefty carries to follow him all the way to the Smurf Village.
