A Strange Smurf

I just bought a small pack of toys from Value Village, 4 bunch for a bagful of plastic junk, and I saw a smurf in there so I thought, okay, possibly pays for itself just with a smurf!
So the smurfs I got are the Lion Tamer smurf, with the whip and loin cloth. But unlike the one in the Blue Buddies site, mine has a yellow drum, not green. Is this a variation? :/
The bottom of his feet says C (with the circle around it for copyright) Peyo on one foot, on the other Bully and W.Germany.
I also have the smurf with gray wrench and green overalls. I'm not sure if its genuine, it seems as if its genuine though. He has Copyright symbol and Peyo, W. Germany stamped on one foot.
Also, I have an actual fake, I thought it was funny because it isn't even in the 'Fakes' section. Its one of those orange 'Gnome' characters from Empire. He's got a red hat and green clothes and is holding nothing in his hands but his tongue is sticking out, which is different than any of the ones shown on the site. I doubt he's worth anything, being a fake, but he's hilarious I'm gonna keep him around. >)
Thanks for any help in identifying authenticity of these smurfs. I can't post any pictures, I'm sorry but they wouldn't be clear enough to see any writing or details even if I did take some pics with my webcam.
