Uh oh! Very Smurfy Non-canon warning: This article or section contains non-canonical information that is not considered to be an official part of either the Smurfs Franco-Belgian comic book series or the 1980s Smurfs cartoon show series and should not be considered part of the overall storyline of either.

Smurfwillow is a character who appears in the Smurfs: The Lost Village film. She is the female counterpart of Papa Smurf who leads a group of Smurfettes in her own village located in the Forbidden Forest. Like Papa Smurf, she wears a red hat (though with a white flower pinned to it) and has white hair while her little Smurfettes have dark blue hair.

Official Description

Willow is savvy and multi-talented, a peaceful presence who is also fiercely passionate. Everything she does, she does wholeheartedly. And that is exactly why, as the leader of Smurfy Grove, Willow has raised a group of warrior Smurfs who are independent self-starters, capable of anything.

The girls’ leader and the female equivalent of Papa Smurf.  She’s the matriarch, someone the girls trust and look up to. And for good reason. She’s wise, strong, brave, and funny. She knows the secrets of nature and the properties of every kind of plant. She can even communicate with them! Unlike Papa Smurf, Willow is more like a shaman than an alchemist. She has a lighter side too and she loves to tease Papa Smurf. Without a doubt, her favorite pastime is playing dominoes. And nobody dares challenge her because she’s just too good!


Nothing is known about her history prior to the Smurfs first meeting her and her little Smurfettes in the movie, except that she was self-taught in the art of self-defense. Upon meeting the first four Smurfs from the Smurf Village, she allowed them to be granted hospitality by her little Smurfettes, although Smurfstorm still had suspicions about Smurfette. She later meets her Smurf Village counterpart Papa Smurf when he comes to look for the four Smurfs that left his village and the two eldery leaders show signs of having feelings for each other, although that meeting was soon ruined by the appearance of Gargamel attacking and freezing all but Smurfette with his Freeze Balls. While they were captives inside Gargamel's castle, Smurfwillow and Papa Smurf attempt an escape with the other captured Smurfs and Smurfettes, which was eventually foiled by Gargamel sending his pets Azrael and Monty to stop them. However, when Smurfette bravely sacrificed herself to stop Gargamel from using his equipment to siphon the Smurf essence out of her fellow Smurfs and Smurfettes, reverting back to a lifeless lump of blue clay in the process, Smurfwillow joined with Papa Smurf in their return to the Smurf Village to mourn for their loss. Fortunately, the love that the Smurfs and Smurfettes showed for Smurfette became powerful enough to re-animate the remains and turn Smurfette back into a real Smurf again. As the Smurfs and Smurfettes celebrate Smurfette returning to life again and the meeting of the two villages, Smurfwillow is seen having an outing with Papa Smurf in the end credits.


Smurfwillow is a wise and formidable leader, but also kind and quick to assume the best rather than the worst about an individual or group. She quickly seems to have hit it off with Papa Smurf, the two aged leaders each apparently recognizing the other as a kindred spirit.
