The Smurfs  is a Belgian comic series, created by cartoonist Peyo (pen name of Pierre Culliford). The titular creatures were introduced as supporting characters in an already established series, Johan and Peewit in 1958, and starred in their own series from 1959.

These creatures, which later became the Smurfs, were such a hit that they got their own comic series.

Thirty-one Smurf comic albums have been created, 16 of them by Peyo.
