Nickelodeon is bringing the Smurfs back to American television almost exactly 40 years after their first appearance (September 10, 1981).
Les Schtroumpfs (The Smurfs) follows the charming Smurfs on brand-new adventures packed of humour, drama, and high-octane action.
Almost all of the new series was produced in Belgium. Smurfs: The Lost Village has a big influence on the film’s CGI animation technique.
