Smurfette, the smurfiest of all the Smurfs
Although intended as the Trojan horse to lead the Smurfs to their downfall, Smurfette, adored by all the other Smurfs, has become the first female Smurf in the Smurf village.
The Smurfs are cartoon characters created by Peyo. They were designed as sidekicks in the series Johan and Peewit, and became the main characters of their series in 1959. Smurfette was the first female Smurf, and was later joined by Sassette, a red-haired teenager.
Smurfette made her debut in 1967. She was created by the evil wizard Gargamel, who wanted revenge on all the Smurfs. Gargamel assumed that all the Smurfs would fall in love with Smurfette and that the rivalry between them would cause a big quarrel. Smurfette however, was far too ugly (torn dress, big nose, greasy black hair, ...), irritating and stupid to make the plan work. The Smurfs just laughed at her and teased her. Papa Smurf came to her rescue and truned her from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan using his magic. All of a sudden the Smurfs all started to adore her, even Grouchy Smurf. Eventually the Smurfs found out that Smurfette had been sent by their arch-enemy Gargamel, after which she was labelled a spy. With all the unrest she was causing by being there, Smurfette decided to leave the Smurf village.
During the first fifteen albums Smurfette still lives in an unknown location somewhere outside the Smurf village, but her visits grow more and more frequent and she ends up in her very own pink mushroom house, complete with flower garden and lots of washing line to hang up Baby Smurf's nappies, whose she decided to look after. She is currently still single ...
Pretty much all the Smurfs are in love with Smurfette, with the exception of Papa Smurf. And, needless to say, the most devoted is Lovestruck Smurf.
