This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast your hosts take a look at the controversial The Purple Smurf.
The Black Smurfs (English title The Purple Smurfs) is the first album of the original French-language Smurfs comic series created by Belgian artist Peyo, first published in 1963. In a little mushroom village live the Smurfs, diminutive blue-skinned humanoid creatures. One day, one of them gets stung by a purple fly that turns his skin purple, reduces his vocabulary to the single word “gnap!”, and causes him to go berserk. He bounces around and bites other Smurfs on their tail, which turns them into purple Smurfs as well. Soon, almost everyone in the village has become a purple Smurf, and Papa Smurf, the leader, tries to find a cure and cease the tail-biting epidemic.
