There’s something just so endearing about The Smurfs. Mostly I think it’s because it’s just such a simple concept. Little blue dudes have an adventure and it all wraps up nicely by the end. Seems pretty safe and kid friendly doesn’t it?

Yeah, that’s what I thought too. Good thing I have October K Santarelli here to help blow some of those ideas out of the water. Listen in as we take a dive into Smurf history and explore some of the dark secrets of these little blue demons.

Learn such things as:

  • Why aren’t there more girl Smurfs?
  • Do Smurfs understand the concept of mortality?
  • Can we do a whole episode without subbing a curse word with Smurf?
  • And so much more!

You can find October on Tic Tok @OKWrites, Instagram @O_K_Writes, and his website Ocober K Santarelli.com.
