I'm looking for a musical piece that I have heard on a few movies and most distinctly in the Smurfs. It is a musical piece that is usually used when something exciting, menacing or dangerous is occurring. This is all I can describe. I think it was used in "A Circus for Baby" in one istant, but it was used a fair few times I'm sure.

Oh, BTW, Hi everyone. I just signed up.

Hi Handy, and welcome to the board.

Well, I know that they used a lot of classical music on the TV series, but I'm unsure as to the piece you're referring to. Has the piece been used in a movie that you can think of?

Vic George is quite knowledgeable about the TV show, perhaps he knows.

Well I found that orchestrated piece I was looking for. It was Schubert's Symphony in B Minor, No. 8 "Unfinished" first movement, "Allegro Moderato."

Well the reason I found that part was because it was featured in the movie, 'Being There.' IMDB came in handy too since that piece was uncredited.

Hi Handy Smurf, thanks for finding out this great info about the music in the Smurfs.

I've looked all through the Smurfs CDs and records for sale on the 'net and never found a soundtrack (or even an accurate listing) for the series - so far...

I'm restarting this thread for a second because there's another musical piece I was wondering about. Would anyone know what the sad musical theme is in the Smurfs? This is played when there is a sad moment that occurs. I think it's a voilin playing. It might be created by the Smurfs cartoon series musicians, or it could be a snippet from another music composition.

In addition to Schubert's symphony as noted above, Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" is the source of two themes used in Smurfs. The composition is about 34 minutes in length, and well worth experiencing, IMO.

Gargamel's theme starts about one and half minutes into the composition (little adaptation is made from the original). Another theme which I remember was used as a segway between scenes or after a commercial break is found about 10 minutes into the piece (a series of notes taken almost verbatim and looped).

If you like this work from Mussorgsky, then don't miss his "St. John's Night on Bare Mountain" piece.

Thanks for that SoylentChewToy. It's good to hear some of the titles of musical pieces that the Smurfs cartoon series appropriated. Would anyone else know of any others?

There are two parts from Modeste Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" (composed in 1874) that are in The Smurfs cartoon. They are Gnomus and Tuileries. Gnomus is the scary Gargamel music and Tuileries is the classic happy incidental smurfy music.

Click and save these midi files to your hard-drive or use Windows Media Player (or something like it) to have a listen. You'll recognize the music as soon as you hear it, especially Tuileries. Or just listen below:



♪ Listen to Gnomus Smurf Music




♪ Listen to Tuileries Smurf Music

Good work, whoever did the entry for the Smurfs cartoon show and the episode listings. What I would like to see is a Wiki dedicated solely to the cartoon show itself, providing more in-depth information.

I have an excerpt from The Smurfs cartoon that has the Tuileries music!!


Tuileries Smurf Music
Episode: The Fake Smurf


Modest Mussorgsky is a Russian composer. He is actually known as one of the "Russian Five", the five Russian nationalist composers. This is the Tuileries movement from the suite, "Pictures at an Exhibition". The suite has nine other movements - including Gnomus.

I will post more of the most popular songs and well recognized music from The Smurfs cartoon here. That way, we can all listen to it and better learn the names of each song!

Excellent. And of course the most popular Smurf song would have to be The Smurfs Theme Song.

True Blue Friends DVD


You can watch all of the Smurf theme songs here. There are many different versions.

Do you mean, the la-la song? Or the Smurfs intro from the first season?



It was Hoyt Curtin - who had done memorable intro themes for HB productions (eg 'The Flintstones', 'Top Cat', 'Jonny Quest', 'Josie and the Pussycats') - the composer. [Wink]
