Top Ten Smurf Facts!

The new Smurfs movie is released in cinemas nationwide today, and to celebrate this fact we've compiled a list of the top ten smurf facts!

1. Smurfs are 3 apples tall
2. Smurfs can walk and run but most often move by skipping both feet
3. They love to eat sasparilla leaves, the berries of which they actually call "smurfberries"
4. The smurf characters are at least 100 years old
5. There were originally 99 smurfs, nowadays there are 105!
6. The smurfs use storks to travel long distances and keep up to date with events in the outside world
7. It is said to be impossible for an outsider to find the smurf village, except when led by a smurf, so you never know there might be some living just next door!
8. The smurfs have been around since 1958!
9. The smurfs replace enough nouns and verbs in everyday speech with "smurf" as to make their conversations barely understandable eg, "we're going smurfing on the river smurf today."
10. Sasette is the love interest of almost every smurf, and in the 2011 film is being voiced by Katy Perry.
