Smurf Series Rebooted as Animated Tale of Female Empowerment

Created by the Belgian cartoonist Peyo, the Smurfs started out as a comic strip back in 1958. Over the intervening years, the popular series chronicling the exploits of a clan of diminutive blue humanoids crossed over to television and film, most recently, a pair of live-action features released in 2011 and 2013.
