I notice there's an official document BlueBuddies put together with the help of fellow members, regarding a list of all the known characters from the Hanna-Barbera cartoon series, seasons 1-9.
I currently have an interest in this and came across the original thread on here, when members were trying to put it together all the way back on Feb 22, 2005. Topic: Smurf Names
I see the administrator eventually created a finalized list, which eventually had some edits:
I love all the detail in there! It really puts it in perspective on just how many Smurfs there were across those 9 seasons, and how many actually had names.
In reading the bluebuddies thread, along with using a great reference site created by site member Vic George, I realized that the finalized list was missing some things, or some editing could be done.
For example, the Smurfs named Cobbler and Architect are not on the list. And while Medic Smurf is shown , since there were two Medic Smurfs appearing in the episode their from - 'Happy Unhappiness Day To You' (Thanks Vic George for that) - shouldn't that be noted as well?
Also, #44 says Golfer Smurf, but it should be noted that the Smurf in the episode 'A Hole In Smurf' was never mentioned by name, and therefore, the name 'Golfer' is a fan-made name, respectfully.
These above mentioned characters are all from the Original 100.
The document also shows the additional 7 Smurfs that were discovered as the seasons went on...but I'm wondering if Grouchus Smurfus (from a Season 9 episode), the nine Poltersmurfs (from a Season 7 episode) and both Angel and Devil (from multiple episodes, starting in Season 4) can also be put on the list for additional characters?
I know one is a statue, the nine are spirits/ghosts, and the other two are figments of the conscious...but they are all interactive, no different than all the other Smurfs with each other. They're existence is also 'ongoing' (unlike the handful of fake Smurfs that were temporary). And how they were created or how they exist should not be a concern, if you consider that some other characters are still accepted as Smurfs by their peers even though they were made through magical spells or put together mechanically or through their 'natural' creation, of course.
Under the category of 'Smurfs That Weren't Smurfs', we can add Gargamel as the evil baby Smurf (from season 1, The Baby Smurf), and also the evil Nosey Smurf (season 5 The Mr. Smurf Contest); the Sorcerer Smurf (season 1 episode of the same name), as well as the 'Evil Greedy Smurf' figment of imagination (i just made that name up because he's not mentioned in the episode by name. It was season 1 The Smurfs And The Money Tree). The Gingerbread Smurfs from season 4 episode of the same name could also be put here.
In that same list, it says there was an Evil Smurf created by Hogatha. But I only know when she became Snorty Smurf and Grandma Smurfette....and the list already shows these. So what episode does Hogatha become this 'Evil Smurf'?
Anyways, these are just my thoughts. Opinions would be appreciated. Just looking to see if this wonderful 'name list' can be fine-tuned even further.
