A Blue Christmas: Smurfs Christmas Special

Never thought I would be profiling anything Smurfs related here, but even they had a Christmas Special. This is from 1982 and deals with two stories. One is the regular Smurfs living peacefully and Gargamel trying to ruin their existence. The other story deals with a family heading somewhere for Christmas and getting stopped by an evil stranger. A surprising note on the voice casting is that the evil stranger is voiced by
Rene Auberjonois!

Yes, Mr. Odo himself plays a villain who is even meaner than Gargamel. He is a greater sorcerer than Gargamel too. Rene, believe it or not, is a very accomplished voice actor and has worked for the last several decades on numerous animated productions. Everything from Smurfs and Snorks to DuckTales, Scooby-Doo, Batman, Darkwing Duck, Extreme Ghostbusters and much, much more.

 Sit back and shut the Smurf Up and watch this Christmas Special.
