It sounds like a silly question, but I'm sure there's a few unsilly answers.

Season 6, Episode 23
Can't Smurf The Music

Chlorhydris tries to take the music out of the Smurfs by doing away with the notes.

This is a cleverly written episode. Chlorhydris thought she could do away with music altogether by silencing musical sounds which is vocally spoken, or instrumentally played.

But the moral of the story is that music can also come silently from within all inside of us. I'm an amateur musician myself. Actually, I also had a severe vocal handicap so I immediately and naturally understood.

If music was ridiculously banned throughout the whole wide world, still nobody can take away our thoughts and imagination away from us unless they're somehow more impossibly successfully gifted than Chlorhydris and Gargamel.

We can still listen to music from within us even if we had no hearing like the mute wood elf Laconia (now I do feel ridiculous).

Well after all, Paul McCartney actually wrote the classic "Yesterday" from within a dream he had which is the most covered song in history. That came from within.

It's really not just about the music tbh. It's really about how complex we are, which we're barely starting to understand.

Does anyone else agree, and maybe add to some more?

Or am I just taking these topics all a bit too maddingly far? [Roll Eyes]

I always thought the Smurfs had strong moral messages when they talked about good and evil. They made it pretty black and white but I remember in
A Hug For Grouchy in season 3 Chlorhydris tries to make everyone "not care" about anyone. I thought the ramifications for that were pretty severe and scary.

Just like you say, we're complex, and good Smurf episodes like a Hug for Grouchy and the one you mentioned make you think!

I like 'King Smurf' for its message tells that being a leader is much more than giving commands to all sitting on a throne and using a crown and garments. [King Smurf]

Before Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue, there was an anti-drug message episode called "The Lure Of The Orb" where Poet and a few other Smurfs become addicts to the power of a magic orb that was supposed to give the user enlightened inspiration. However, when Poet finally comes off from being enthralled by its effects, he realizes that the power of the orb made his poems he had written under its effects sound really wacked out, and so he writes a new poem and at the end of the episode he rejects the witch trying to give him a new orb.

Speaking about "A Hug For Grouchy", I thought it conveyed the worst moral message, as it said to me that it was okay to disrespect people's feelings when it comes to not being touched. And this was coming at a time when cases of child molestation was being brought to light. That's part of why I wrote my Empath: The Luckiest Smurf story sequel "The No Hug Zone", to say that it's okay for people like Grouchy to say no when it comes to touches they don't want.

Continuing on this topic...

"The Smurfs And The Money Tree" had a good message about personal happiness not coming from the amount of things that you own, that having things cannot replace having good relationships with people.

"The Incredible Shrinking Wizard" had a Green Aesop about caring for your environment, as Gargamel was affected by the pollution he created by throwing his failed formulas into his own muck pond.

If we take a look at stories from the comic books...

"The Smurf Reporter" teaches that you should be careful not to believe everything you hear.

"Can't Smurf Progress" teaches while machines may be great for helping you do things better and faster, they cannot and should not replace people actually doing things for themselves.

"The Finance Smurf" teaches that just because certain things like the money system work for certain groups of people, that does not mean that it will work for other groups of people where sharing and cooperation are part of the societal norm.

"The Smurfs And The Book That Tells Everything" teaches to be careful about where you get your solutions for life situations from, especially if the source doesn't tell you right upfront what the consequences of using those solutions will be.
