The Smurfs: Season 1, Volume 1

Watching The Smurfs: Season 1, Volume 1 on DVD reminded me you can never really grow out of things that mesmerized you as a kid. I'm not ashamed to admit that up until now, I still enjoy watching these little blue creatures. Back in the 80's, I hardly remember a Saturday going by without hearing the "La, la, la, la, la, la...." that introduced the show. That was over 20 years ago. Now, the little blue guys are back for the first time ever on DVD. This is a must have for anyone who grew up watching the series. This 2 disc collection contains the entire first season, along with all the Smurfs' adventures, and troubles they encountered with the evil wizard Gargamel. Seeing the rainbow of colors from the Smurfs' world transferred to DVD greatly enhanced the animation. Not only that, but how cool is it to be able to choose at will the episode you want! Back in the day, we had to wait week after week just to get a new episode. Well those days are long gone. And in our current world of computer animation, it's great to finally have this classic cartoon on DVD, and to revisit the land of the little blue people.
