In the late 1960s / early 1970s, after the Dupuis line of Smurfs had debuted, a series of crude and poorly painted Smurf figurines were made with the markings "PEYO (C) &ED DUPUIS-UNION".
Dupuis-Union Smurfs are made out of a harder material than regular Smurfs. These Dupuis Union Smurfs are notable for their low-quality appearance and the fact that the paint rubs off very easily.
Dupuis Union figurines seem to still be plentiful in Belgium, making them relatively easy to find there.

|Although Dupuis Union Smurfs appear to be unlicensed, they are apparently legitimate commercial products based on Schleich molds from 1972 / 1973. They were given away as promotional items.|
The Dupuis-Union Smurfs include: Papa Smurf (20001), Drummer Smurf (20009), Judge Brainy Smurf (20016), Vanity Smurf (20017), Smurfette (20034), and Naughty Smurf (20077).
